So you own a motorcycle and have not only seen or heard of the gruesome details and recklessness of cagers, ” what bikers call car drivers”, against motorcyclists.
How do you protect yourself and your family, when it happens?
Who do you turn to, when it does happen?
Is my insurance good enough, when it does happen?
What happens to my job or business when it happens?
These are all valid questions, that must be considered before getting on a motorcycle in today’s biking world.
This is where aMotorcycle Accident Lawyer comes in, and getting the right one is the best thing you can do for yourself and your family when that dreaded accident happens!
So first we ask ourselves what is a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer (MAL)?
This is persons that not only specifically deals with motorcyclists and their problems, whether accident, theft or any other motorcyclist problem but is a motorcyclist themselves.
They studied all aspects of the road users’ laws and bylaws, rules, and even previous cases to be specifically available for you the motorcyclist for when that time comes.
Not only do they defend you, sue for you, but will also do lots of seminars and conferences on behalf of motorcyclists around the globe, relating to safety by the rider and relating recklessness of the cager.
Why is it so important to have a MAL on your side?
As a rider you see how bad things are on the road and with the right lawyer on your side and good insurance to go with it, you can ride with ease, at least with that worry off your shoulders, and concentrate more on staying alive and safe.
What do I have to look for in the perfect MAL?
Well just off the top you should do your homework(on the internet-as most advertise there and will put all their info on the web), and should have the following three attributes for the least:
MUST BE A RIDER HIM/HERSELF (MOST IMPORTANT)
This is very important as they know what it is like on
the road and also why certain things happen.
MUST HAVE TRIAL EXPERIENCE
This is important as many cagers tend not wanting to
settle out of court and the case goes almost always to
MUST HAVE A PASSION FOR BIKING
If your lawyer has a passion for riding, they will have a
passion for your case and not just “another day on trial”
This of course along with all other attributes of being a lawyer.
So be safe as well as be covered!
