The Right Kind of Protection in a Motorcycle Accident
There is nothing quite like being out on the open road on a two wheel motorcycle. You can feel the wind hitting your face, the air filling your nostrils. It is a feeling that is exhilarating. Often, riders define their experiences on their bikes in religious terms; it takes on almost spiritual implications. There is definitely a sacred bond that forms between a rider and his/her bike.
Unfortunately, this amazing rush does not come without a very unique set of risks. We have all seen the devastation that motorcycle accidents can cause. Not being protected by the confines of a vehicle, the individual struck will often hit the vehicle and the pavement, leading to the chance of multiple injuries. Motorcycles are often harder to see for motorists and often time’s insurance companies will not offer the same protection as they would to a 4-door vehicle. In turn, there are often misconceptions about those that ride motorcycles.
Insurance companies will often try to blame the victim based on an attack of their character alone. The reality of it is, there is no stereotypical definition of a motorcycle rider. They are the young and old, the rich and the poor. However, the prejudices still exist and can be detrimental to your case if you obtain the wrong lawyer. Please, make sure that you find an attorney that can assess your needs on a case-by-case basis.
Experience is your best ally when combating an insurance company. So, if you ride a motorcycle, please make sure to wear a helmet and protective leathers whenever possible. These can seriously limit the seriousness of an accident should one occur.
