The Dangers of Motorcycle Crashes With Other Vehicles
Motorcyclists face serious risks while riding on the road, including being involved in a two-vehicle crash with a motor vehicle. Accident injuries to motorcyclists are often severe and life-threatening due to the lack of protection afforded by their vehicles. Common motorcycle accident injuries include broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord damage, internal bleeding and amputations. Injuries may also cause permanent disability or even death.
In addition to physical injuries, motorcyclists can experience psychological trauma from a two-vehicle crash. This can include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety and difficulty adjusting to life after the accident. Motorcycle accidents may also cause financial losses, including medical bills and lost wages due to time off work.
The Importance of Hiring the Right Lawyer to Handle Your Case
Having the right lawyer to represent you is one of the most important decisions in any legal matter involving a motorcycle crash. Hiring an attorney who understands insurance law, jury prejudices against motorcycle riders and settlement negotiation strategies can be critical in getting a favorable outcome for your case.
Insurance companies often try to minimize their payout on claims, especially those involving motorcycles, which is why it is important to have an attorney who is skilled at handling this type of accident. Your lawyer should know how to interpret and use the language of your policy to maximize your coverage. An experienced attorney can also negotiate settlements with the insurance companies on your behalf in order to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Jury prejudices against motorcyclists can also be a factor in any lawsuit. It is important to have an attorney who understands the dynamics of civil court trials, has experience in handling cases involving motorcycles, and knows how to craft a presentation that meets the needs of the judge and jury.
