How a Motorcycle Lawyer Can Help
Working with a lawyer who has experience handling motorcycle accident cases can give you the information and edge you need for greater success during insurance settlement negotiations. Your lawyer can tell you what to say and what not to say to an insurance claims adjuster to obtain fair results. Your lawyer can also take over negotiations on your behalf so you can spend your time and energy on something else, such as your medical treatments and physical recovery.
Why Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?
Motorcycles are smaller, lighter and more vulnerable to risks on the roadway than heavier passenger vehicles. A minor hazard to a motorist, such as loose rubble, could be deadly to a motorcyclist. Similarly, even a minor mistake on a driver’s part could end a motorcyclist’s life. Every driver has a duty to reasonably prevent motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, many drivers breach this duty. Our lawyers can help injured motorcyclists with crashes involving all types of causes.
- Driver errors
- Drunk driving
- Incompetent or inattentive drivers
- Texting and driving
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Making unsafe lane changes
- Breaking traffic laws
- Failing to yield the right-of-way
- Dangerous roadways
- Debris in the road
