Q: Is a motorcycle accident always the fault of the biker?
No, a motorcycle accident is not always the fault of a biker. It might feel like there is a prejudice against bikers and that insurers and others tend to blame motorcyclists for all bike crashes on I-895, I-695, and other Maryland roads. However, just because the insurer is trying to make that claim does not mean that it is necessarily true.
You Will Have to Prove Your Case
If you are claiming that someone else, such as a car or truck driver, was responsible for your accident and injuries then you are going to have to prove your case. You are going to have to present evidence that someone else’s distracted, drunk, or otherwise negligent behavior resulted in your accident and injuries.
But You Don’t Have to Do it Alone
Instead, an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can investigate your case and provide evidence to the insurance company during settlement negotiations and to a judge or jury at trial about the other party’s negligence.
Don’t let a prejudice against bikers prevent your fair recovery. Instead, learn the facts about your own case and work with someone who isn’t afraid to fight for justice. You may be able to recover damages that include compensation for past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering
You may be able to recover damages that make a big difference in your life and allow you to recover to the maximum medical extent possible. Don’t let a fight deter you. Instead, read our testimonials and case results to find out how we’ve helped other people who have been hurt in accidents.
