Motorcycle Accidents Are Uniquely Challenging
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to serious injuries in accidents, including head injuries and amputation. These can even become fatal accidents. There are other additional challenges motorcyclists face in comparison with other motorists. Decreased visual recognition from other drivers, increased road hazards, speed-involved instability of a motorcycle and increased difficulty of driving are all examples of these challenges.
These facts may mean that you now face serious injury, including head injuries after being involved in a crash on your motorcycle. There are many hardships and steep expenses associated with a motorcycle accident. An attorney can help.
‘What Should I Look For In A Lawyer?’
Motorcyclists face unique risks on the road in Baytown, Texas, and surrounding communities such as Highlands, Crosby and Channelview. Motorcycle accident cases are often even less straightforward than typical car accidents. For effective legal representation, you need someone who understands the unique factors that come into play such as:
- Bias against motorcyclists that is common among law enforcement officers, jury members, judges and insurance claims adjusters
- The often-inadequate insurance coverage of many motorcyclists
- The severity of the injuries that are common in motorcycle accidents
Due to this, motorcyclists need skilled representation when pursuing a personal injury claim. If you were involved in an accident while driving a motorcycle, there are a variety of elements that contribute to your personal injury claim when seeking compensation.
‘Can I Handle My Claim Alone?’
Once an injury claim is filed, the responsible insurance company will likely examine whether or not you complied with traffic laws and motor vehicle regulations in an effort to avoid paying damages. This challenge — along with seeking medical treatment, protecting your rights and proving liability — may create a complicated situation best handled by an attorney with experience.
