Motorcycles are not as safe as large passenger cars or trucks when you are on the open road. Yet, if you can drive safely and responsibly, the only accidents you ever have to worry about are those caused by other motorists who are not driving/riding motorcycles. If you are ever in an accident, you should not hire just any old accident lawyer either. You should hire a motorcycle lawyer, and here is why.
Motorcycle Attorneys Focus on These Accidents Only
Motorcycle attorneys are niche legal businesspeople who do not take accident clients of all types. They take only motorcycle accident cases and, therefore, know more about this type of accident than any other accident or personal injury lawyer. They have seen many different cases where the results of the accidents all turn out differently, and most of those cases the motorcycle driver/rider was never at fault but suffered the most in damages and injuries.
Many of These Lawyers Are Motorcyclists Too
There is a certain subculture when it comes to motorcyclists. You may have a biker gang, but then you have the group of motorcycle enthusiasts or motorcycle collectors that come together to ride a few times a month. They "get it" when it comes to how valuable your motorcycle is to you. They empathize with you and help you restore the bike's worth while also restoring your physical ability to ride your bike. They understand how costly these vehicles are, from the moment of purchase through maintenance and even restoration after an accident. That is why they try to get the most money for your motorcycle repairs that they can get.
It Takes a Long Time to Recover from Motorcycle Accident Injuries
You will probably be off work for months, if not being completely disabled. You will lose income, have to pay lots of medical bills, and might even need physical therapy if your injuries are severe enough. The person who hit you and was driving a car or truck probably had few to no injuries at all, but he/she might try to sue you first or countersue, despite the severity of your injuries. You have to hire a lawyer and get ahead of this situation and ahead of the bills and lost wages. It is the only way you are going to be able to make a full recovery without having to worry about money versus making a full recovery.
