Choosing a Motorcycle Accident Attorney

f you’ve been injured in a crash in the state of Utah on a motorcycle and you have serious injuries, it’s important that you select the right attorney. One of the things you want to look at is that the attorney you hire has experience handling motorcycle crashes. They’re different than other types of accidents, so you want to make sure that you have somebody who’s experienced with the rules of motorcycle riding, and has the experience in dealing with the adjusters for the insurance company on that type of a case.

One of the other things that I think is very important is that you hire somebody who’s a trial attorney, somebody who will be prepared and will take your case to trial if that’s what’s necessary to make sure that you get a fair resolution of your case.

After a Motorcycle Accident

If you’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in the state of Utah, there are a few things you want to make sure that you’re doing. You want to get good medical care. Your job is to get yourself back to as healthy as you can, as quickly as you can. Go see a good doctor and do what your doctors say. It’s very important that you talk to an attorney as well. You want to make sure that you select an attorney who knows how to handle a motorcycle crash and can protect your interests in a case.

Motorcycle Accident Recorded Statement

If you’re involved in a motorcycle crash in the state of Utah, you’ll probably get a call from the insurance company for the driver of the other vehicle, and they’ll want to take a recorded statement. What the insurance adjusters want to do in that case is get you to talk about what you were doing that was unsafe. They’ll try to talk about speed and other issues. They’ll talk about your injuries, which, at this point, you probably won’t know much about, and they’ll want you to say they’re not as significant as they really are. For these reasons, we recommend that you contact an attorney before you ever give a recorded statement to the insurance company.
