Two Things To Think About When You're Hiring An Attorney After An Accident

Getting into an accident while you are on a motorcycle isn't quite the same as getting into an accident while you are in a car. While you can get severely injured either way, the fact that you don't have the same amount of safety features around you while you are on your motorcycle means that you are at higher risk for being injured, even if you are wearing all the recommended safety gear. If you have been in an accident, or you have a family member who has been, you need to know how to handle the aftermath. That aftermath may include having to go to court to get what you are entitled to. If that happens, you are going to need to have a lawyer to help you. 

Specialty

You are going to want to find an attorney who specializes in motorcycle accidents. While any vehicle accident lawyer can probably help you, one who does a lot of work on motorcycle accidents is going to be more familiar with the additional laws surrounding motorcycles and what kind of appropriate safety measures and safety gear anyone on a motorcycle should be dealing with. An attorney who works with these cases frequently will also be able to counter any arguments an attorney for the insurance company or other driver can pose when it comes to what you should have done. 

Payment

You want to make sure that your lawyer is going to work with you on payment. Trying to come up with an upfront payment can be really difficult, let alone trying to keep up with paying hourly rates. This is especially true if you are trying to pay a lot of medical bills or you are out of work. So, look for a lawyer who will take their payment out of your settlement when you win. They will generally take a percentage of your settlement versus a set monetary amount. Your attorney will be able to tell you the percentage that they take and you may be able to negotiate with them about the amount, depending on how complicated your case may be and how much you can reasonably expect your settlement to be. 

Getting into an accident while you are out for a nice ride on your motorcycle can leave you severely injured and unable to work and with huge medical bills. A lawyer may be able to get you what you are entitled to. 

About Me

Texting driver caused my accident

Have you ever picked up your phone and sent or read a text message while you were driving? Do you know just how dangerous that is? All that it takes is one split second for your life to change forever and to change someone else's life forever. I was hit from behind because a well-dressed business man couldn't wait until he was stopped to respond to a text message. I saw him coming in my rear view mirror, but there was nothing that I could do about it. This accident happened over a year ago and I still suffer every day. My blog is filled with information that can help others that have been injured by texting drivers.
