Motorcycle Attorneys Help Win Costly Settlements


Visitors: 242

As gas prices keep increasing steadily with no relief in sight and dim hope of ever seeing cheap fuel again, more and more people are turning to motorcycles, wanting to squeeze more miles into every gallon of gasoline. Indeed, motorcycles get far better mileage that do their weightier four-wheeled counterparts.

However, with the rise in motorcycle use comes a subsequent rise in the number of motorcycle crashes. Accidents involving motorcyclists are most efficiently handled by hiring personal injury lawyers who specialize in motorcycle law. It is wise to contact an attorney soon after an accident, as there may be a limited time for filing your case.

There are a number of rational reasons for choosing to hire a lawyer instead of trying to deal with filing a claim for your accident yourself. For one thing, dealing with insurance companies can be a huge headache. The paperwork can be crazy, and, unfortunately, undue prejudices against motorcyclists often come into play.

Another compelling reason to use an attorney who knows the laws regarding motorcycle accidents is that the settlement you receive is frequently higher with a lawyer than if you pursue your case on your own. Lawyers just know what to ask for! You may or may not be aware of all you are entitled to claim in a suit, and what insurance company is going to volunteer that information? A lawyer can get a higher settlement than a layman nearly every time.

Sure, you might be able to manage things yourself, but who needs all that irritation after a devastating event. Concentrate on recovering from your injuries, and leave the other business to a professional? With a proven motorcycle lawyer who asks for no fee unless and until your case is settled, what is there to lose? So if you have been in an accident, save your energy for recovering (and bike repair!) and leave the settlement battles to a lawyer.
