Why It’s Important to Have a Motorcycle Accident Attorney On Your Side

All too often, motorcycle accidents result in devastating injuries that can change yours and your family’s lives forever. Those who survive accidents involving larger vehicles often suffer spinal cord or brain injuries, amputation, burn injuries, or permanent scars – both physically and emotionally. It’s not at all uncommon for injuries to be so severe that they prevent motorcyclists from taking care of themselves, performing daily tasks around the home, returning to work, or ever riding again.

Motorcycle accident victims deserve fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, scarring and a reduction in quality of life. In addition to the real physical and emotional issues you suffer following an accident, there’s the uncertainty about your future. How and when are you going to be able to support yourself and your family, pay mounting medical bills, and resume a normal life?

IT’S IMPORTANT TO HIRE A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

When you’re injured in an accident, the person at fault is negligent. If another driver caused your motorcycle accident, they are the negligent party. On the other hand, if your accident and injuries resulted from debris in the roadway or poorly marked road hazards, there’s a possibility that the city or county is the negligent party. In Boulder, your motorcycle accident attorney will know how and where to start your case.

Insurance companies want to settle your case as quickly as possible – and certainly not in your favor. They’ll count on you to take their first offer and settle the case for the lowest cost (to them). Never speak with an insurance representative about your motorcycle accident until first consulting a motorcycle accident attorney about your case.

WORKING WITH YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Even though you’ve found the best attorney for your case, it’s important to stay involved. While your attorney will make strategic choices during the process of presenting your lawsuit or injury claim, the final decisions are yours. A good motorcycle accident attorney brings with him a multitude of skills, knowledge and experience from experience with many personal injury cases. Your attorney knows what needs to be done, and will advise you on how much you can expect from your settlement.
