Investigation to Settlement: What a Motorcycle Lawyer Does

In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, you may be stressed and dealing with several different needs, including the possibility of receiving compensation if you believe the accident was the fault of another party. A motorcycle accident attorney may be just the person to assist you with this and several other vital parts of this process.

At the offices of William Rawlings & Associates, we're here to offer the best motorcycle attorney and other auto accident injury lawyer services you'll find across Salt Lake City, Provo, Draper and nearby areas of Utah. We're often asked a simple question: What does a motorcycle accident lawyer do? Here are some of the basic and most important roles our attorneys serve for motorcycle accident victims, from initial investigation of the incident to a possible settlement or even trial situation.

Investigation to Settlement

Detailing Your Rights

In many cases, the very first step our motorcycle accident attorneys take is explaining your rights as an injured party. You are entitled to several potential forms of compensation from another party if they were at fault for the accident, ranging from medical bills and lost wages to pain and suffering damages. Our attorneys will inform you about these rights and make sure you're aware of any time restrictions involved in filing a claim or lawsuit.

We're often contacted in the immediate aftermath of an accident, and we're happy to take your call and begin the process of evaluating your case right away. We'll ask several questions about the accident and the parties involved - information that will be vital in determining whether you have a legitimate claim.


From here, our attorneys will go to work investigating the details of your accident. This includes gathering evidence such as police reports, witness statements, and any relevant medical records or bills. We may also consult with experts in motorcycle crashes to evaluate factors such as vehicle speed, road conditions, and other potential contributing factors.

This investigation is crucial for building a strong case in your favor and determining the full extent of damages you may be entitled to. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice for our clients.

Building Your Case

Utilizing both our investigation and our experience with similar cases, our attorneys will develop a strong and strategic case on your behalf. We'll gather all the necessary evidence and documentation to support your claim for compensation.

We'll also handle all communication with insurance companies or any other parties involved in the accident. Our goal is to take the burden off of you during this difficult time, allowing you to focus on your recovery while we fight for the compensation you deserve.

Providing Regular, Simple Advice

Throughout the entire process, our attorneys will keep you informed and provide clear, straightforward advice. We'll explain your options and work with you to make the best decisions for your case.

Whether that involves negotiating a settlement or taking the case to trial, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through each step of the legal process.


In the vast majority of cases, our attorneys are able to negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies or other parties involved in the accident. We'll use our skills and experience to advocate for your best interests and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

During this negotiation process, we'll keep you updated and consult with you before making any decisions. Ultimately, our goal is to reach a settlement that fully covers your damages and allows you to move forward from the accident.

Going to Trial

In rare cases where a fair settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys are ready and willing to take your case to trial. We have extensive experience in the courtroom and will use all of our resources and knowledge to fight for a successful outcome on your behalf.

Our attorneys understand how intimidating trials can be, which is why we'll work closely with you every step of the way. You can trust us to handle your case with professionalism, dedication, and a commitment to achieving justice for you.
