Riding motorcycles can be a lot of fun, but there is always the risk of getting into an accident. When a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident, the injuries to the rider and passengers can be serious. A “fender bender” between two cars can result in no injuries to the passengers, but a motorcycle rider rarely escapes without a trip to the hospital for treatment of broken bones, lacerations, or even more serious injuries.

The amount of money you earn from a reckless driver if you are involved in a motorcycle accident is determined by the qualifications and expertise of the motorcycle lawyer you employ to represent you.

This article will provide you with the details you need to make an educated decision and will assist you in finding an attorney who will get you the most money for your injuries.

What to Consider When Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


The path to becoming an attorney is long and winding. An applicant who wishes to practice law after graduating from law school must pass the bar examination to show their legal knowledge. A background check and investigation are also conducted to determine if the applicant is of good moral character. Individuals who successfully complete the process are admitted to the bar, which allows them to practice law in the state.

Anyone who has been admitted to practice law may appear in court to defend someone accused of a crime or to represent a motorcycle accident victim. Experience managing litigation in a particular field of law distinguishes certain lawyers from others. Anyone can take on a personal injury lawsuit, for example, but if you are seriously injured in an accident, you want the attorney prosecuting your claim to have knowledge of negligence laws as well as courtroom and trial expertise that can only be gained from years of practice representing accident victims.

Before you hire a lawyer to manage your claim for damages from a motorcycle accident, there are three things you should think about.

The three key factors you must consider before hiring a lawyer to handle your claim for damages from a motorcycle accident:

Location: YYou may have seen or heard advertisements for motorcycle accident lawyers. Some of the advertisements are for attorneys from other states (or parts of the state that are hours away from your hearing location). Out-of-state law firms typically refer the case to another firm in your state, giving you no control over the attorney you hire. Choosing an attorney from the city or county where your case will be heard ensures that you will be represented by someone who is familiar with the local court processes and judges.

General Practitioners: Many attorneys and law firms work as general practitioners. Real estate, criminal protection, wills and estates, and personal injury can be among the services they provide. A lawyer who does a few motorcycle cases on the side may not have the same degree of experience with the law or courtroom expertise as a lawyer who focuses solely on personal injury law. Asking questions about a lawyer's practice, such as what proportion of the attorney's practice is motorcycle law, is the simplest way to learn about their practice.

Good Reputation and Experience: Finding a motorcycle accident lawyer takes some time and effort to ensure that you get someone who can help you get the best results. You should do your homework by checking online feedback and testimonials from as many outlets as possible in addition to asking the lawyer questions.

You'll want to compare a few attorneys before deciding which one meets the three requirements you're looking for in a motorcycle claim attorney.

How to Find a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


There is a huge pool of lawyers from which to pick a few to interview in order to find the best motorcycle accident lawyer for your case. In the United States, there are about 1.3 million attorneys, with about 170,000 practicing in California. Of course, just a fraction of them deal with motorcycle rules, but who do you call? There are a few options for narrowing your search:

Friends and Relatives: It's likely that someone you know has used the services of a motorcycle accident lawyer, whether it's a member of your family or a personal friend.

Lawyer Referral: Although the lawyer who represented you in the purchasing of your home or in the formation of your company does not specialize in motorcycle accident lawsuits, they should be able to refer you to one who does.

Bar Associations: Most state and local bar associations provide lawyer referral services, which you can use to get the names of local motorcycle accident attorneys. The State Bar of California, for example, maintains a statewide directory of local attorney referral services grouped by county.

Google Search: When it comes to looking for something, everybody seems to turn to Google, so typing “motorcycle accident lawyer” and your location into the search box will yield results. One drawback to a Google search is that you have to sort through the results by looking at websites to figure out which of the many firms and lawyers you want to contact.

Lawyer Directories: One or more of the online lawyer directories is another place to look for the names of lawyers and law firms. You will locate a nearby lawyer based on his or her area of practice using a lawyer list. Client and peer reviews and ratings of lawyers are available on some directories, such as Martindale-Hubbell and Avvo. Popular directories include:

Avvo
Martindale-Hubbell
Justia
FindLaw
NOLO

Solicitation letters from law firms offering their services are one outlet you should be careful of. Lawyer ads, which involves solicitation letters, is governed by state bar associations. In California, for example, lawyers must state that such letters are a form of advertisement. Keep in mind that the letter's contents are intended to persuade you to use the firm's services.

Tips on Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


Until hiring a lawyer, interview a few.

It's time to pick a lawyer to handle your motorcycle accident case now that you've compiled a list of lawyers who meet your requirements in terms of location and practice area. Interviewing each lawyer is the only way to do this effectively.

Most lawyers have free consultations, so make appointments with a few of the attorneys on your list. Gather papers to bring with you to the meetings that will provide the prosecutor with details about the accident and your injuries. Documents you might consider bringing with you include:

Police reports of the accident
Photographs of the accident scene, the vehicles, and your injuries
Medical reports you might have that explain your injuries
Records showing your regular wages and time lost from work due to the accident
