If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident‚ or you were injured riding as a passenger in a motorcycle accident‚ you are most likely here to get help‚ find out what to do‚ what to expect‚ and what type of compensation you are entitled to.
Motorcycle accident cases in the United States are usually catastrophic‚ which means that in many cases the injuries involved‚ and the time to recover‚ are much more extensive than those of persons injured in a car accident cases.
Unlike passengers in cars‚ we motorcycle riders have only what we are wearing as protection in a motorcycle injury accident. When the human body hits the asphalt there is usually broken bones‚ road rash‚ torn ligaments‚ potential brain injury‚ internal injuries‚ and more.
For this reason‚ it is imperative you choose the right motorcycle accident lawyer for your case.
Now there are outfits out there that advertise for motorcycle accident cases simply because they view motorcycle accident victims as a marketing target. You have probably seen them at major motorcycle rallies‚ on TV‚ and in magazines.
These outfits spend tons of money to get your attention and your business. But most of these attorneys don’t know the first thing about riding a motorcycle. They are basically generic personal injury attorneys that probably could not tell you how to shift gears on a motorcycle from 1st gear to 2nd gear‚ let alone understand the principles required to actually ride a motorcycle in traffic.
If you hire this type of attorney you may get money‚ but you will almost always get more money with an experienced motorcycle attorney‚ an attorney that actually ride a motorcycle.
