Why You Need a Motorcycle Attorney
Motorcycles are fun, but they are also riskier than any other vehicle on the road. The body of a motorcyclist is exposed to direct impact from other vehicles when he or she is struck or with the pavement if the accident propels the rider off of the bike. This leads to injuries that are usually more severe in nature then what you see in a typical automotive crash. Over 3/4 of all motorcycle accidents that occur in the United States will result in an injury or fatality to the driver of the motorcycle.
The very design of a motorcycle necessitates an attorney after an accident has occurred. The two wheels—lightweight and small size of a bike—make them more susceptible to being struck by a passenger car or truck than other vehicles on the road. In almost all cases, the other driver will immediately try to place the blame on the motorcyclist even though most of the time it was a failure to notice the bike that caused the accident.
A motorcycle accident attorney such as Timothy J. Ryan knows the defense tactics used in motorcycle cases and is skilled in gathering evidence to prove that inattentive driving was the most likely cause of the accident. You will need an attorney with his dedication to help prove your case and maximize your compensation. The faster you retain an attorney following a collision the better. A motorcycle accident claim is going to require evidence that your attorney will need to start collecting right away to help prove liability. Any delays can cause crucial information to your case to be lost, forgotten, or overlooked.
