<![CDATA[Many riders who have been involved in a serious accident with another motorist think that they can just hunker down and work out the battles with insurance adjusters and the legal system on their own. However with all of the complex details and piles of bureaucratic paperwork, this approach could take months or even years. In addition to providing invaluable assistance during a motorcycle accident case, lawyers can provide several additional benefits:
- Perhaps it’s obvious, but attorneys spend the entirety of their career understanding the rules of evidence and liability, and so already have a thorough comprehension of the process that enables them to make the right moves and work more quickly. Most will have already dealt with the same laws, discovered the appropriate angles, and hone in on the strongest aspects of the case.
- It’s an unfortunate truth that there can be a bias against motorcyclists when an accident occurs. An excellent motorcycle lawyer will know just how to present you and your case in the most favorable light possible. This attorney will understand how an adjustor, judge, and jury each looks at the case, and how to speak to the concerns and questions of each.
- They don’t always play nice in the courtroom, and in the heat of the moment it can be difficult to keep your cool or find the right words to defend your actions. By having an attorney defend you, you get insulation from the bull-dog tactics of the other lawyer, while your own counsel fights just as fiercely for you.
- Experienced counsel will know how to tell the story in a compelling way. And they also know how to have the jury hone in on physical or mental scars that are more long lasting than they may seem. With medical understanding of the facts, the lawyer can describe how the accident has impacted your whole life.
- Better Results. Many reports show that individuals with legal representation have a better chance at obtaining a successful claims resolution, and fare better in court, compared to individuals who choose to represent their own case and fight their own fight.
