Why are motorcycle accident cases different?Accidents involving motorcycles are far more likely to result in a fatality than a car crash. Sadly, motorcycle riders encounter dangers that other drivers do not. They are less visible on the roads. Therefore, other drivers are less attentive to motorcycles than other vehicles. Additionally, motorcycles are more difficult to maneuver when trying to avoid an accident.
But your motorcycle accident case does face some other difficulties. This is because jurors tend to view motorcyclists as “rebels” or “risk-takers.” Of course this perception is untrue. In fact, statistics show that the majority of accidents involving motorcycles are the fault of the automobile and not the motorcycle.
Insurance adjusters like to use this misconception to their advantage. Therefore, they hold the driver of a motorcycle to a higher standard of care than the driver of a car. This can effect how they evaluate your claim. Therefore, your lawyer should be ready to battle against this misconception. After all, motorcycles are entitled to the same rights as any other vehicle on the road.
