About Me

Working With Your Lawyer

About ten years ago, I was involved in a bad car accident. Another driver, who happened to be driving drunk at the time, smashed into the car I was driving. In addition to killing my daughter, the accident also left me paralyzed from the waist down. Although the case should have been cut and dry, the insurance company claimed that I was at fault. Fortunately, I worked with a lawyer who was able to fight my case for me. Without his help, I would still be paying off medical bills. I want to spread the word about the good that lawyers can do, which is why I created this website.

Protect Your Rights By Staying Engaged - Questions For Your Motorcycle Accident Attorney

The feelings of freedom and adventure that come with heading out on the open road on your motorcycle are hard to match, so it's important to take steps to guarantee that you're fully protected from any potential downside. Securing your interests after an accident may seem daunting, but keeping up with the information that comes in is a great place to start.

Below, you'll find a guide to some questions you should be sure to ask your attorney in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident. Keeping these suggestions in mind can help guarantee that you see yourself successfully to the end of the process and can put you in a position to recover as quickly as possible:

Ask About Scene Investigations

The central issue in any motorcycle accident case is the proper assignment of fault. Determining the responsible party for the collision can determine the proper financial responsibilities for each party, so it's absolutely essential that you commit to gathering the facts as thoroughly as possible.

One good way to accomplish that is by gathering an independent investigation of the scene which can help determine the paths of the vehicles involved as well as any potentially hazardous road conditions. Your attorney should be able to contact reliable experts who can conduct these investigations with high accuracy.

Ask About Unidentified Vehicles

Some of the biggest challenges on the road for motorcycle drivers come in the form of other drivers not being aware of their positioning. Many motorcycle accidents may appear to be single vehicle incidents but actually, involve reckless driving on behalf of a person who drove away without realizing they caused an accident.

If you're not able to identify a vehicle that cut you off and caused you to crash, you may still be able to be protected. Your attorney can work with your insurance to seek compensation through an uninsured driver policy that might be able to allow you some recovery room.

Ask About Personal Liability

It's important to remember that the attorneys on the other side of the case will be focused on trying to paint your actions on your motorcycle as reckless, irresponsible, and the cause of your own injuries. Whether or not that's true is a question that the court will settle, but it's important to understand your exposure. Make sure that you're totally honest about your mental and physical state as well as the status of your bike during the accident so your attorney isn't blindsided by accusations and is able to respond.
