How a Motorcycle Wreck Case can end up Difficult
If you have read anything about motorcycle wrecks, you know that it’s hard to get in one and walk away without any injuries. Something about the lack of protective box around you that makes it so that you end up injured more often than in a car wreck.
But there’s a paradox that happens. Even though you’re more likely to be injured, and the majority of devastating motorcycle wrecks is due to inattentive motorists hitting the biker, Texas motorcycle wreck cases can end up being more difficult.
What it Means to Settle a Motorcycle Wreck
Have you ever heard about a trial that was coming up, but then you heard that they “settled out of court”? A lot of cases never go before a judge and jury; it’s usually cheaper to settle them beforehand.
Most accidents will settle before going to trial. If you have been in a motorcycle wreck, and your attorney proposes a settlement offer, the insurance company can choose to settle, counter, or deny that offer. Because these companies are in the business of collecting premiums, and not paying court costs and attorney fees, they usually look things over and if it’s going to cost less to settle the case, they do that.
But if the insurance company believe that your claim isn’t legit, they may deny it and the claim is escalated.
What it Means to have a Motorcycle Wreck Case
When you have a motorcycle wreck case, it means the settlement wasn’t accepted, and the case escalates to going to trial.
Now things get a little tricky. This is where a Texas motorcycle case can become difficult.
There is often a jury that is selected, and the bulk of the jury won’t be riders themselves. They don’t understand what it means to ride a motorcycle, or what it’s like to have passenger and commercial vehicles zipping past you. They’ll also be convinced, in most cases, that when you hop on the bike you know it’s dangerous. And because you’re accepting that danger, you don’t deserve as much compensation for your accident and injuries.
We’re here to tell you that’s preposterous! Just because it is dangerous doesn’t mean you’re less injured. If your Texas motorcycle wreck case is because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation that will let you heal.
