Why is a Lawyer Experienced in Motorcycle Accidents Necessary?
Motorcycle crashes are more complicated than traditional motor vehicle accidents. In many instances, insurance carriers have a bias towards motorcyclists and will attempt to blame them or their own injuries. Your attorney will not let this happen. By gathering all of the evidence in your case, your attorney will be prepared to skillfully negotiate a settlement that covers all of your crash-related expenses. If the other side refuses to offer a fair settlement, your attorney will be prepared to take your case to trial.
