It seems that the question “when should I call a motorcycle accident lawyer” is highly popular on the internet, and while some of the answers vary, for the most part the consensus is as soon as possible. Your first concern after being involved in a motorcycle accident should always be your health and even if you don’t think you have been seriously injured you should still seek medical attention to make sure you are not suffering from a concussion or an internal injury. It could take as long as a few days for symptoms to appear and without treatment could be deadly.
As soon as your medical condition is stable you or a loved one should consult with a motorcycle accident lawyer at once. There is a lot of important evidence that needs to be gathered, such as the police accident report, pictures or other physical evidence and witness lists, as well as medical reports on your present condition and the doctors prognosis for your recovery.
Once your motorcycle accident lawyer has gathered and studied all of the evidence he will begin building the facts of your case to be presented to the insurance company of the at fault driver. Your lawyer will present your case in a manner that favors you should a trial be necessary and when faced with evidence that proves their insured driver was at fault, many times the insurance company will opt to settle on your lawyers terms rather than risk a trial.
