Do I have to have a lawyer for a motorcycle wreck?
No, it is not mandatory to hire a lawyer for a motorcycle wreck. However, having an experienced attorney on your side can help you receive the compensation you deserve, and protect your rights.
If the other driver was at fault, their insurance company may try to low-ball you on your settlement. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will know how to negotiate with the insurance company to get you the best possible settlement.
If you were seriously injured in the accident, and because riders are so vulnerable it is very likely that you were, you may need ongoing medical treatment and miss time from work. A lawyer can help you recover these costs from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
