Motorcycle Accident Attorney Referral Service
What is the benefit of hiring a Motorcycle Accident attorney?
Being in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic experience. You or a loved one may have suffered serious physical injury or death, property damage, and emotional trauma. You may also be unable to work temporarily or permanently, and be wondering what to do about your loss of ability to earn a living, how to provide for your family, and what your recourse is against the individual who caused the accident.
Oftentimes, motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of another motor vehicle operator. Unfortunately, because of a perceived stigma associated with motorcycle riders, people tend to assume that the motorcycle operator was the cause of the accident, even if it was another driver. As well, other motor vehicle drivers may not necessarily know how to properly and safely share the road with a motorcycle which can cause problems that result in collisions.
A personal injury attorney experienced in handling motorcycle crash claims can provide a real service to victims of motorcycle collisions. A motorcycle accident lawyer will know the ins and outs of negligence law and how it applies to accidents involving motor vehicles and motorcycles.
An attorney will be able to analyze the facts specific to your situation and craft a persuasive case that can be presented to a judge or jury. Additionally, as many personal injury cases are settled out of court, your motorcycle accident attorney will have the skills needed to effectively negotiate a settlement, especially if a big insurance company becomes involved, or if the cause of the accident was clearly the other driver.
A motorcycle crash attorney will help you or your loved ones obtain the maximum compensation possible under California law. In negligence cases, a victim is entitled to several types of compensation based on the injury and damage he or she has suffered. This includes:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Past, present, and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of ability to earn a living
- Loss of consortium for spouses who have been affected by a motorcycle accident
- Burial costs if the accident ended in a death
Hiring an experienced, competent motorcycle accident attorney is a step in the right direction to helping you or your loved ones recover from a motorcycle crash. You will have peace of mind, and be able to recover without worrying about your finances or your inability to work.
How do I choose a motorcycle accident attorney that is right for me?
Choosing the right attorney is always an individual experience. You should feel comfortable speaking with your attorney and sharing personal, private details of your life which may be important in forming a case and deciding what to request in damages from the other party.
Additionally, you should be sure to engage an attorney who has demonstrated experience in handling motorcycle accident claims. Because the law behind personal injury claims and negligence claims can be complex, especially if fault is disputed, you should seek an attorney who has years of experience in the personal injury legal field.
Finally, an attorney who has a history of securing positive jury verdicts and settlements out of court is one that you want on your side, especially if you wish to avoid going to trial. When out of court settlement is not possible, an attorney with litigation experience who has secured positive jury verdicts, will be more suited to your case than an attorney who has rarely set foot inside a courtroom.
