Have you ever wondered what sets a motorcycle personal injury case apart from other types of personal injury claims?
In Part 1 of this blog post, we talked about overcoming bias against motorcycle drivers. Here in Part 2, we’ll discuss 2 more.
An Increased Likelihood of Death and Serious Injuries
Since motorcycles do not offer drivers the same protection a typical vehicle provides, drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured in an accident. Even if death did not occur as a result of the accident, medical bills are typically higher because of more serious injuries and the victim may miss more days from his job. In a motorcycle accident personal injury lawsuit, attorneys should know how to pursue additional damages which are appropriate for the increased suffering experienced in the accident.
Difficulty Proving Fault
For motorcycle drivers who are injured in an accident, one of the biggest obstacles to overcome is proving the other driver was at fault. Because of the biases held against motorcycle drivers, it is more difficult for juries to decide in favor of the motorcycle driver. Without obvious evidence of the fault of the driver, a motorcycle accident victim could walk away without any compensation for their suffering.
A personal injury lawyer who has adequate experience working with motorcycle accident cases will be skilled in collecting strong evidence in favor of their client, and increase the likelihood of a successful suit.
