You are not required to hire an attorney after your motorcycle accident,
but if you think you could have a complicated personal injury case on
your hands, you may want to schedule a free consultation with a lawyer.
That free consultation will give you a chance to get a professional legal
opinion, as well as to learn what your next steps will need to be. Frequently,
when accident victims realize how intense things can get, they acknowledge
the fact that an experienced attorney may be better suited to handling
their motorcycle accident case.
One of the most frustrating things motorcycle accident victims face when
pursing a case is bias from the general population. Motorcyclists are
often unfairly stereotyped as being reckless daredevils who speed on a
regular basis. It is not uncommon for an insurance company to try to use
that bias against you as you seek compensation for your injuries. When
you hire an aggressive motorcycle accident attorney, he will know how
to address all of those misconceptions and make sure your rights are protected.
Finally, if there is a lot of money on the line and you have a lot to lose,
let a professional step in. With the amount of medical bills some people
acquire after an accident, as well as the earnings they forgo while they're
out of work, they really shouldn't gamble and represent themselves.
Attorneys handle cases like yours on a regular basis and know how to navigate
the system to get you the most compensation possible.
