Motorcycle accident attorney
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, help is available from a motorcycle accident attorney. A motorcycle crash can result in serious injuries including broken bones, brain injury and death.
A motorcycle accident attorney will use some of the same tactics used to get full compensation for a car accident, but there are additional issues that must be addressed. Many potential jury members are prejudiced against motorcycle drivers, and this must be dealt with.
The law provides the same claim for a motorcycle rider as for a car driver: if some other driver was careless and caused the injuries, then you have the right to recover compensation for the injuries and the consequences such as lost wages and lost earning ability. However, prejudice against motorcycles will have to be overcome. The average person on the jury may start out with sympathy for the car driver who did not see the motorcycle. Your personal injury attorney will confront the prejudice to work for your fair settlement.
You motorcycle insurance policy may not have Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) as is required in all auto policies. As a result, your medical bills may have to be paid by your own health insurance.
