Accidents happen when we least expect them. They are inconvenient, painful, and expensive. This is especially true in case of motorcycle accidents.
In addition to having proper safety gear and adequate insurance, it is sometimes necessary to consult with an attorney to find out what your rights are in case of an accident. This is especially helpful if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist and have sustained injuries.
What makes this process a little bit frustrating is the fact that there are many "ambulance chaser" attorneys who are only interested in cases that will yield the highest amount of money for them. You want to make sure that you find an attorney who understands motorcycle laws and will have your best interest at hand. The best attorney may not be the one that has a highway billboard with a motorcycle on it, but rather someone who has experience with similar cases and cares about his/her clients.
Always do your research and do not be afraid to interview attorneys before you select one. Due diligence pays off, especially in serious cases, such as legal advice and proceedings.
