To ensure your rights are protected, learn about the 3 common motorcycle accident mistakes that you need to avoid. Contact our office.
1. Not Contacting an Attorney
One of the first mistakes people often make after a motorcycle accident is that they don’t call an attorney right away. It is important to hire an attorney early on in the process of recovery; the earlier, the better. As your attorney, we will get out there immediately and get evidence quickly, before it disappears, so that we can prove that the other driver was the one who really caused this wreck. Getting an accident reconstructionist out to the scene right away, getting investigators out there to find witnesses, and locating video as well as security cameras in nearby businesses are just some of the techniques we can use when working your case. We will get the evidence you need before it disappears to prove that the other driver was the one, in fact, who caused your wreck.
2. Hiring Inexperienced Lawyers
Another mistake that often occurs after motorcycle accidents is that people hire lawyers who are not personal injury lawyers. There is a lot of knowledge that’s required to properly pursue a personal injury claim. When attorneys don’t have that knowledge, they may not be able to recover a fair amount for their clients.
3. Only Contact is Over the Phone
Finally, don’t make the common mistake of hiring a lawyer who handles personal injury claims and settles them all over the phone. You want a lawyer who will go to the courthouse and actually try the case, thereby bringing value to your case. The insurance companies know the attorneys who will go to trial to get the maximum value, and that affects how much they offer to settle.
At the end of the day, you want a trial lawyer who handles personal injury, and you want to hire that lawyer quickly.
