Top five factors to consider when choosing motorcycle accident lawyers

motorcycle accident lawyers

If you are looking for a lawyer as a result of a motorcycle accident, you are not the only one. 2020 was one of the most dangerous years yet for American motorcyclists, with some of the highest rates of accidents and deaths seen in years. There are many reasons to begin choosing motorcycle accident lawyers in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident.

Perhaps an insurer is refusing to payout. Perhaps the accident was the fault of another motorist or the fault of an organization or government agency. Perhaps the response of the authorities was less than satisfactory. Whatever the reason, you could be entitled to compensation after your motorcycle accident case. When considering options for lawyers, here are the top five factors to consider.

1. Make Sure You Are Choosing Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

If you have a motorcycle accident injury and want to sue, you need to choose a lawyer that actually knows what they are talking about. A divorce lawyer or a tax lawyer will not be able to help you, so make sure to select a dedicated motorcycle accident attorney.

It is not difficult to find out if a lawyer has the right experience. For example, some law firms might regularly post news stories about local motorcycle accidents, demonstrating that they are engaged on the issue and passionate about fighting for your rights.

2. Make sure to check their success rate

Do not be shy to ask what an attorney’s success rate is when it comes to a previous motorcycle accident and injury cases they have fought. A quality attorney will never, ever lie about this sort of thing, as doing so is an offense. They should be able to give you an exact number if you ask them how many cases they have won. If they cannot do this, that is your first red flag.

3. Get a detailed picture of their fees and billing

Too many claimants rush into the process of lawyering up without realizing what they will actually be paying for the services provided. Does your lawyer charge a retainer fee? Do they bill by the hour?

Do they expect payment before the case concludes, or do they only accept payment once they have actually won your case for you? You need the answers to these questions before you agree to anything.

4. Check references and reviews

Especially if you have never used a lawyer before, it is essential to see what everyone else is saying about your attorney. Check online reviews and do thorough research. Ask your attorney to provide references from previous happy customers. This is the most reliable way to find out if they are right for you.

5. Check the personal vibe

Finally, don’t be afraid to listen to your gut. If you meet with a lawyer, try and assess the vibe you are getting from them. If you enjoy being around them and feel like you can work with them, that is a good sign. Conversely, if you find a lawyer abrasive or incompatible with yourself, consider looking elsewhere.
