Client Review

After our hit and run we didn’t know where to turn. Our daughter told us about Kemp, Ruge & Green and we are so glad we listened. They made everything so much easier. Stella just finished our case. She was quick to answer all questions and was always available even during covid. She was wonderful.

While Hudson may be a beautiful place in which to ride a motorcycle–with good weather year-round with the exception of high humidity and heat (which isn’t so bad on a motorcycle) and the chance of a downpour–riding a motorcycle isn’t a risk-free activity, regardless of where you live. In fact, riding a motorcycle is dangerous, and the risk of suffering severe injuries in the event of a crash is high. At the law office of Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, our Hudson motorcycle accident lawyers know that a crash can change your life. If you’ve been injured, we can help.

Hudson Motorcycle Accidents

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, our law firm will work hard to build your claim, prove the fault of the responsible party, and get you the settlement that you deserve. We’re here to guide you through everything you need to know about the process.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents

Most motorcycle accidents occur because of a party’s negligence–either the driver of the passenger car involved or the motorcyclist. Top causes of motorcycle crashes that we’ve seen include speeding, drinking while driving, driving while distracted, and aggressive driving, including illegal maneuvers and failure to check one’s blind spots.

Injuries from motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents are devastating because the injuries that a person may suffer in a crash may be life-changing. Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries;
  • Back, neck, and spinal injuries, including paralyzing spinal cord injuries;
  • Internal injuries and internal bleeding;
  • Injuries to extremities, including amputation injuries, crush injuries, and bone fracture injuries;
  • Road rash/road burn injuries; and
  • More, including psychological injuries.

Who pays for a motorcycle crash in Hudson?

Liability–or legal responsibility–for a motorcycle accident in Hudson is based on fault. Our lawyers will work hard to investigate your accident and build a strong case providing the fault of the responsible party. We’ll then file a claim against the at-fault party’s liability insurance provider, which should pay for your damages. In some cases, compensation may also be available through your own insurance policy, too, depending on the coverage types you carry. Our team will assist you in exploring the various sources of compensation available to you.

Common Questions About Motorcycle Accidents in Hudson

How much can I recover in a motorcycle accident claim?

If you are filing a claim against your own insurance policy, you will be limited in the amount that you can recover by the details of your policy. If you are filing a claim against another party, however, our team will work hard to make sure you receive compensation for the full value of your damages. We will advocate for your right to compensation for your medical bills, property damage costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and any other economic or noneconomic damages.

What happens if I wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the crash?

While helmets are not required for motorcyclists who are over 21 years of age and who carry at least $10,000 in medical benefits coverage, wearing a helmet is strongly advised. That being said, you won’t be barred from recovery if you weren’t wearing a helmet at the time of crash; instead, your recoverable damages amount may be reduced in proportion to the degree of negligence assigned to you. For example, if you are found to be 20 percent responsible for your injuries due to your lack of helmet, your recoverable damages award will be reduced by 20 percent.

Will I need to file a lawsuit?

Most of the time, claims are settled out of court. If a settlement cannot be reached, litigation may be necessary.
