Choosing a Motorcycle Accident Attorney
A frequent question we get in motorcycle accident cases in Virginia is, “How do I find the right attorney for my motorcycle accident case?” My simple answer to that is find somebody who knows and has handled many motorcycle accident cases before. A lawyer who has experience in motorcycle accident cases understands the prejudices against motorcycle drivers in Virginia, but also understands how to show that you as a motorcycle operator were not the cause of the crash. By doing that, you can dispel that prejudice. Look for a lawyer with experience in handling actual motorcycle accident cases in Virginia.
Motorcycle Accident Claims
Recently, a motorcycle driver came in to see my firm about handling a motorcycle collision in Virginia and wanted to know what the difference is between handling a motorcycle case and a vehicle collision case in Virginia. The first thing that’s different about a motorcycle case is dispelling the prejudice that people often have against motorcycle operators in Virginia that they were operating recklessly, or weaving in and out of traffic the way some drivers have a tendency to do. That evidence is most easily obtained by getting a lawyer involved early on in your case. By doing that, you’ll have the ability to dispel that prejudice against motorcycle drivers in Virginia.
Mistakes to Avoid After a Motorcycle Accident
Some of the most common mistakes that I see people make when they have a motorcycle accident case in Virginia have to do with not preserving the evidence of the crash quickly enough. That usually requires not just relying on what the police investigation shows, but hiring an attorney to get a full team of field investigators out to document all of the physical elements of the collision. Often in Virginia motorcycle accidents, the blame is attempted to be shifted onto the motorcycle operator, more or less to take advantage of the innate prejudice against motorcycle drivers that many people have. The best way to rebut that is to retain an attorney as quickly as possible and preserve the evidence of the accident scene following those types of collisions.
