Motorcyclists Need To Be Very Vigilant – Bike Crash Lawyers
Being a careful and experienced motorcycle rider is the only way you can protect yourself on the road. But the truth is: no matter how good you are, you can only control yourself – not other drivers on the road. And because your body is exposed the way it is not in a car – to the road and direct impact by other vehicles – the injuries that you can get in a motorcycle accident are the most severe, ranging from broken bones, fractured skulls, neck and back injuries, scarring from “road rash” and even paralysis and death.

Many times, it is experienced riders who are struck by drivers of cars and trucks who are not used to sharing the road with motorcyclists. Even the best riders have little or no protection from the high impact forces from the speed, size, and weight of other vehicles. The human body was never designed to take these sorts of impacts.
Motorcycle accidents are rarely the fault of the motorcycle rider. Usually, it is an inexperienced or distracted driver who strikes the motorcyclist. But it is usually the motorcyclist who gets serious injuries and permanent consequences from the carelessness of another.
No Matter Who Is At Fault, Permanent Life-Changing Injuries
Motorcycle accidents can and do result in some of the most serious and permanent (and often, catastrophic) injuries I see in my law practice. Because of the high cost of serious necessary medical treatment, and the high insurance policy limits which cover many car and truck drivers, their insurance companies hire aggressive defense attorneys and these kinds of cases can turn into a real fight. You would be wrong to assume that anyone’s insurance company or lawyer is going to take it easy on you, especially if your case involves a permanent injury.
The Key To Protecting Your Rights Is A Good Investigation, Right Away
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident with injuries, there are many, many facts and details that can mean the difference between winning the case or ending up with a lower settlement for your injuries than you deserve – or possibly even losing the case altogether.
Identifying all responsible parties and their insurance coverage, identifying witnesses and getting witness statements before insurance companies contact the witnesses, and compiling clear and compelling evidence of exactly how the collision took place are some of the most important first steps you can take if you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident.
Any time you are dealing with an insurance company – and in motorcycle accident cases, you almost always are – you must understand that you are dealing with people who spend their every waking hour trying to beat injured people out of their fair settlement for their injuries. There are large amounts of money on the line for the involved insurance companies, so they think nothing of spending money on lawyers to defeat your case.
Consider Hiring Our Lawyer
Hiring the right lawyer – a lawyer experienced in taking real cases to court is the smartest thing to do if you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle injury. It is really the only way to make sure that your fight against the insurance companies is fair. But only you can make this important decision that can make or break your case. Only you can act now to protect your rights.
