From A Legal Perspective, How Is A Motorcycle Accident Different From A Car Accident?
Usually, a motorcyclist is hurt much worse than someone who is in a car accident. As a result, one of the first issues we have to deal with is how are going to get the medical bills of the motorcyclist paid and how much insurance is on the other at-fault driver.
The first step is to try and determine if the other driver is insured. Does he have multiple layers of insurance? Was his vehicle insured with someone else? We will also look back at your own motorcycle policy to see if we have underinsured coverage that might apply as well.
Recall, that a good personal injury lawyer needs to try and maximize the recovery for their client with their right hand while minimizing the expenses and liens that are deducted from that recovery with the left hand.
