I am sure that lawyers hear this question all the time; why do I need a motorcycle accident lawyer when the other driver was at fault? While at face value the question seems simple enough, the fact of the matter is in most motorcycle accidents the key issue surrounds the victim’s level of injury and the damages incurred during the accident. The question of fault is usually established by the police on the scene and is documented in the official accident report filed by the police department.
Because motorcycle accidents are governed by the personal injury laws in your state, having an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer representing you and your insurance claim puts the law on your side in securing the largest settlement award possible under the law. Your lawyers sole job is applying the law to the facts of your case and securing a cash award to cover your current and any future medical expenses, getting your motorcycle repaired, money for your lost wages and other bills while you are unable to work, and most importantly money for your pain and suffering.
Motorcycle accidents are far different than your typical auto accident because in almost every motorcycle accident the result can be serious injury as well as property damages, and understanding the dynamics of motorcycle accidents and how they relate to the motorcycle accident victims injuries is the key reason why hiring an experienced motorcycle accident is crucial.
Your personal injury lawyer will take the facts of your motorcycle accident, medical reports and your doctors prognosis for your recovery and present these facts to the at fault drivers insurance company. The insurance companies will try to settle for as little as possible so it benefits you to have someone who is experienced at representing these types of claims to ensure you get what you are entitled to.
You never speak with anyone regarding your motorcycle accident, except for the police, and your insurance company, and above all never sign anything unless directed to do so by your motorcycle accident lawyer.
