Why Hire a Frederick Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Handling this process without legal counsel is complex. While the internet may help you understand some aspects of negligence, it will not teach you how to prove each element required for the claim. Moreover, if there is a dispute over liability and you must go to trial to recover compensation, you will likely struggle to file a proper complaint. You may have difficulty concerning the rules of evidence, or even distinguishing which set of rules to follow. Most commonly, we see lay people having difficulty handling the insurance aspect. Handling personal injury protection (PIP) benefits, making an uninsured claim, underinsured claim, and dealing with the defendant’s insurance are all common obstacles to encounter.
Our firm wants to make the process simple for you. We know you may be hesitant to trust a law office, which is why we are so proud of our awards we have received. Since 1954, our Frederick motorcycle accident lawyers have fought for our clients. Our goal is to provide compassionate counsel for you, so you can focus on your medical recovery. We know how difficult your life can become following an accident. You may lose your usual mode of transportation and struggle to get to work each day. You may struggle with physical impairments from the accident that inhibit your favorite hobbies and passions. These are things we will learn and then use in making your case as pain and suffering is an element of damages in a negligence claim.
I Worry about Increasing my Insurance Rates
So long as you did not cause the accident, you do not have to worry about this. In fact, your own insurance company will generally appreciate you having another party handle your compensation, not that that should be your primary concern. Instead, the only one who will have their rates go up are the rates of the negligent driver. And notably, this will happen regardless of whether you file suit or not. As soon as the defendant’s insurance company catches wind that their insured is in an accident, they will raise the rates.
The only way they will not raise the rates of the defendant is if he or she does not report the accident. That too is inadvisable as it is highly likely that it is a violation of their insurance contract, voiding the policy and any future coverage. But to be abundantly clear, if you did not cause the accident or were in anyway contributorily negligent, your rates should not go up. If you have any questions, please reach out to a Frederick motorcycle accident lawyer to discuss.
