In An Accident with a Motorcyclist? Hire a Lawyer!
Motorcyclists don’t have the best reputation for their driving habits; and it’s a reputation they don’t always deserve. For example, they do have the legal right to drive their motorcycles between cars in traffic. But some drivers find this behavior frustrating and startling. Motorcyclist aren’t shy about hiring lawyers, so if you’ve been in an accident with a motorcyclist, contact a lawyer immediately. Leaving the case to no one but your insurance company could cost you thousands of dollars.
Motorcyclists know their reputation and they are easily frustrated by other drivers on the road. Because of this on-going contentiousness with other drivers, motorcyclists are quick to turn to a lawyer when involved in a car accident. Even when motorcyclists are clearly at fault, they tend to hire lawyers after any accident — they know law enforcement agencies have a tendency to side with the vehicle drivers. The motorcyclists want to ensure there is no favoritism when assigning blame for damages.
Knowing and understanding motorcycle driving laws is a special skill. Not all insurance adjusters, police officers, and judges have a full grasp of those specific laws. You will need a lawyer to make sure any claims about the accident conform to the existing laws about motorcycle behavior.
