When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, the motorcyclist usually suffers serious injuries. Because the damages in a motorcycle accident can be substantial, it is important for accident victims to protect themselves by retaining an experienced Maryland motorcycle accident lawyer. An attorney fights for compensation that covers past expenses and losses suffered by the rider, but also compensation for future damages caused by permanent disabilities.
Regardless of the extent of your injuries, we urge you to call 410-661-9440 to consult with one of our Pinder Plotkin motorcycle accident attorneys in Maryland. During your free consultation, we discuss the steps we take to increase the chance that you are compensated to the fullest extent possible for your damages, losses, and injuries.
Five Reasons You Need to Hire Our Maryland Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Some of the benefits of hiring our Maryland motorcycle accident law firm include:
- Accident Investigation Team
The Pinder Plotkin Legal Team has experience investigating motorcycle accidents. To recover compensation for your claim, you must first prove that another party was responsible for causing your crash. By investigating your accident, our team identifies the cause of the crash and who was responsible for the crash. We secure and preserve key evidence to use to prove fault, such as physical evidence, eyewitness statements, photographs, videos, and police records. Performing an investigation without an experienced legal team can be difficult and jeopardize your ability to recover compensation.
- Retaining Industry Professionals
In some cases, determining the cause of a crash can be very difficult. Our lawyers consult with industry experts, including engineers, accident reconstructionists, and motorcycle experts, to help recreate the crash to establish the cause and prove fault. Having a law firm on your side that knows who to call when an expert is needed can be a big advantage in a motorcycle accident case.
- Understands How Insurance Companies Treat Motorcyclists
Because we routinely represent motorcyclists, we understand how insurance companies treat motorcycle accident claims. In most cases, the company attempts to blame the rider for the accident. If the insurance company can convince a jury that the rider has any responsibility for causing the accident, Maryland’s pure contributory negligence laws bar the motorcyclist from recovering any compensation for the claim. Because of the negative and untrue stereotypes many people believe about motorcyclists, it may be easier for a lawyer to convince jury members that the rider was being reckless or aggressive. Our lawyers understand how to combat these tactics with facts and evidence to win motorcycle accident cases.
- Correctly Valuing A Motorcycle Accident Claim
It can be difficult to know what you may include in an accident claim if you do not understand Maryland’s personal injury laws. For example, you may not know that you can include travel expenses to and from your doctor or over-the-counter medical supplies and medications in your accident claim. The Pinder Plotkin Legal Team helps you carefully document your expenses and damages to maximize the value of your claim.
Furthermore, correctly valuing the pain and suffering damages of a motorcycle accident claim can be very difficult. There is not a formula for calculating the value of your pain and suffering. Therefore, you must know the typical range insurance companies and juries pay for pain and suffering damages. You must also understand how to use the facts and evidence in the case to maximize the value of pain and suffering damages. Our attorneys have experience handling motorcycle accident cases, so we understand how to maximize the value of your claim to recover as much compensation as possible for you.
- Provides Guidance and Support
Being injured in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic and overwhelming experience. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be in the hospital for weeks and out of work for months. The insurance adjuster for the other driver may begin pressuring you for information, medical releases, and recorded statements. Providing this information may not be in your best interest and could hurt your chances of recovering full compensation.
Our experienced Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers provide the support and legal advice you need during this time. The Pinder Plotkin Legal Team protects you from being taken advantage of by insurance adjusters and insurance lawyers. You should not be worried about what steps you should take to protect your right to recover compensation. You need to focus on your recovery, your health, and your family. Let us worry about the legal issues and the insurance company. That is our job, and we take it very seriously.
