Have you been in a motorcycle accident? Have you sustained injuries from a motorcycle accident? Has your motorcycle sustained damage from an accident? Then, you definitely need a motorcycle accident lawyer. You may ask why you need to hire a special lawyer when any lawyer can go to court. There are plenty of reasons you probably are not considering.
Dealing with or thinking about motorcycle accident cases, the biker is almost always accused of being in the wrong because, bikers, in general, are perceived as drunks, speeders, and reckless drivers. When finding a motorcycle accident lawyer, look for one who is expecting this bad perception. Look for a lawyer who knows the rules of the road for motorcycles. Look for a lawyer who has experience and wins. Don’t just look in the yellow pages for any attorney.
The laws for motorcycle accidents are different for cars and vary from state to state. The amount of damages sought in motorcycle accident cases vary from state to state. This is another reason why you should hire a motorcycle accident lawyer. Make sure your attorney is licensed to practice in your state and that they are qualified to fight your claim for you. For many reasons it is important to specifically hire a motorcycle accident attorney – one who understands the dynamics of motorcycle accidents and also understands the people who ride motorcycles, including sport bikes and super bikes.
It makes no sense to hire an attorney who does not know one motorcycle from another, or is still influenced by the general cultural bias against motorcyclists.
Motorcycle accident claims are often personal injury claims, not just property damage. Either claim may be made by the victim, or if there is a fatality involved, the family of the decedent has the right to file the motorcycle accident claim. Personal injury claims are often against uninsured motorist. You need someone who knows how to deal with this and get your money for the compensatory, general or punitive damages.
When fighting insurance companies, find a lawyer who knows the laws for a motorcycle accident. Fighting insurance companies over a motorcycle claim is not a job for just any attorney. Hire a motorcycle accident lawyer. Road laws are road laws and you have the right to be as protected as anyone else who is driving anything else.
