When it comes to filing a personal injury claim, those involved, or even those who sit on the jury, may have similar thoughts about bikes and motorcycles. We’ve seen it over and over again and it’s undeniable that there is a bias against riders of bikes and motorcycles. We’re not really sure why. After all, when you’re driving a motorcycle or riding a bicycle, you are engaged in a completely legal activity. You’re not breaking the law, nor are you hurting anyone.
Therefore, you should not be punished just because you were involved in a bicycle crash or motorcycle accident in Glendale with a negligent driver of a car or truck. We can only venture to guess that most people don’t ride bikes and motorcycles and therefore, they aren’t totally comfortable with the prospect. They may see that behavior as reckless or associated with a certain type of person, and they may view bike and motorcycle riders less favorably then car drivers.
Because of this kind of bias, it’s very important that you hire an attorney who is experienced in motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents. Don’t assume just because you weren’t at fault that justice will be served. In fact, insurance companies are particularly aggressive when it comes to trying to fight personal injury claims involving motorcycle and bike riders. For that reason, all the evidence in these kinds of cases must be gathered with the utmost care and efficiency. All the “i’s” must be dotted and every “t” must be crossed in order to stop the negligent driver from getting off the hook.
