Riders who've been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident should hire a motorcycle injury lawyer. Knowledgeable legal counsel can potentially help them maximize the overall value of their injury claim or lawsuit, while minimizing their subrogation or payback obligations. While some people may think that not hiring a lawyer saves them money, studies repeatedly show that plaintiffs with legal representation receive larger settlements and financial awards than those who choose to represent themselves.
How Reputable Counsel Can Help
One of the most important things an injured motorcyclist should know is the insurance company—whether it's theirs or that of the at-fault party—isn't their friend. An insurance adjuster's eye is on the company's bottom line and resolving your claim for as little as possible is their primary objective. A motorcycle injury lawyer levels the playing field between you and the insurance company.
When an insurance adjuster makes a low settlement offer or tries to blame you for your injuries, a motorcycle injury lawyer can use his or her experience, knowledge of case law, and extensive legal training to negotiate for a better offer or correct the legal record. If negotiations fail, a lawyer can take your case all the way to trial so you can have your day in court.
Motorcycle injury lawyers—particularly ones who ride themselves—can have a profound impact on the outcome of your personal injury claim or lawsuit. These lawyers speak the insurance adjuster's legal language, and have a special place in their hearts for injured riders.
Motorcycle accident injuries can be expensive. Don't leave money on the negotiating table when a seasoned motorcycle injury lawyer can help you fight for the financial recovery you need and deserve.
