What are the Benefits of Hiring a Georgia Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

After a motorcycle accident, injured victims naturally wonder whether hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer is worth the expense. Most motorcycle accident lawyers take a percentage of the settlement, generally 33-40%, so you need to be certain that hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer makes sense for your specific situation. Here are the four most important benefits of hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer so you can determine if getting a lawyer is right for your case:

A motorcycle accident lawyer will preserve critical evidence.

After a motorcycle accident, preserving evidence is one of the most important things for winning your case. Tire skid marks, broken motorcycle parts in the roadway, and fluid spills can show the location and speed of the vehicles at the time of impact. The insurance company is going to respond to the scene almost immediately with an accident investigation team. You need a high-powered accident reconstruction team on your side as well to refute any false claims made by the insurance company. An experienced motorcycle lawyer will have a team on standby and ready to respond instantly.

A motorcycle accident lawyer will assist with medical treatment bills.

Hospitals, doctors, surgeries, and therapy can cost thousands of dollars. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can protect your family’s financial future. This is your one chance to get the medical care that you need, and a motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get that care at little or no cost to you. If you have health insurance, your health insurance carrier might cover some of the bill, but you still will be responsible for your deductibles and co-payments. Your lawyer might be able to defer these payments until after you receive your settlement.

A motorcycle accident lawyer will often negotiate a higher settlement.

Studies show that victims who hire a personal injury lawyer tend to receive substantially more in their settlements than those who handle the case on their own. This is true despite the injured person paying a percentage of the settlement to the attorney in the form of a contingency fee. Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries. The insurance company is going to take advantage of your lack of experience and knowledge on the types of damages that you are entitled to recover under the law. Only an experienced motorcycle lawyer will have the knowledge and skills to refuse their false and bogus claims.

A motorcycle accident lawyer will fight for you in court.

Representing yourself in court is always a terrible idea. Lawyers spend years in school and studying for the bar exam to learn the complex legal procedures required to bring a successful case. Making even one minor mistake can have a legitimate case thrown entirely out of court. Some courts expect judges to be fair or nice and help them through the process, but judges are governed by strict rules which forbid them from giving legal advice and require them to dismiss even legitimate cases in certain situations. If you think that you can fight experienced insurance lawyers in court on your own, you are risking making a critical mistake which could affect your life forever.
