Scottsdale Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
It's no secret that if you ride a motorcycle you're more susceptible to being involved in a crash. After all, if you're a motorcycle rider, then you've probably felt invisible more than once on the roads of Arizona. As a motorcycle rider, you know that others out there are not watching for you, which is always scary when riding. Riding a motorcycle is something that once you have rode you never want to give up.
The truth is that most people don't want to have to take responsibility for motorcycles on the road, or the people riding them - they don't want to have to pay extra attention, be more careful, or even admit that they may have ignored a motorcycle once or twice (or a hundred times) in the past. If you're injured in a collision on your motorcycle, there are a few things that you can expect, like:
- The other driver will try to make it seem like you were going too fast, or didn't make yourself visible, or that you somehow did something else illegal, even if you didn't.
- The insurance company will ask you leading questions like, "Did you consider wearing a helmet to protect yourself?" and "Is it possible that you were speeding or doing something else unsafe on the road?" These are questions that are used to make it seem like the other driver couldn't help but cause a crash and injuries.
- You're going to need an attorney. If you were injured in an accident, you don't want to get the runaround, or get fleeced. So you've got to call a qualified personal injury attorney who can help you not only understand your rights, but keep the vultures at bay. The right attorney will hold their own against the insurance company, and won't allow you to lose out on compensation just because you chose to ride a motorcycle.
Once you hire an attorney and you decide to file a lawsuit, it's really important to understand what you're up against. If you go to trial, it's likely that the other lawyer will work hard to get a jury panel filled with people who are scared of, or don't like, motorcycles and don't want them on the road. That makes it easier for them to convince the jury that you don't deserve fair compensation. If you have the right attorney, he or she will be honest with you about the pros and cons of mediating and going to trial, and what each of them really means to you, your family, your recovery, and your future.
If you have the right attorney, then you'll know that the insurance company won't be taking advantage of you. In the meantime, it's important to save your conversations with the insurance company and the other driver or their attorneys for after you've had a consultation with a top Scottsdale injury lawyer at The Husband & Wife Law Team who can tell you the best way to handle your own situation.
