Honestly, you might not need an attorney after a motorcycle crash. It really depends on what happened, the injuries you sustained, and the outcome you hope to achieve. However, although an attorney isn’t necessary in every case, the victims of motorcycle accident often face challenges that require the experience and insight of a legal professional. Here are a few examples of why:
- Motorcyclists are often severely injured by much larger vehicles, and they often suffer life-changing or life-threatening injuries as a result. Expensive, ongoing medical treatment may be necessary, and some victims may be unable to return to work or return to a “normal” life.
- People often have a poor opinion of motorcyclists, making it even more difficult to prove the driver was responsible. Since many people believe that motorcyclists are careless or don’t follow the law, injured riders may be fighting against opinions and biases that threaten to minimize their legitimate injury claims.
- Insurance companies will fight to minimize your claim. After a serious crash, the other driver’s insurance company will be keen to protect its own bottom line, which means that injured motorcyclists may be facing tricks, traps, delays, and denials before they’re even sure they want to pursue a claim.
