If you have recently been involved in a motorcycle that wasn’t 100 percent your fault, you could worry about other bikers going through what you have gone through. For example, if someone pulled out in front of you while you were on your bike and caused an accident, you might worry that the person — or other motorists — will continue to put motorcycle riders like you at risk.
Since you have probably already been through a lot — between potentially missing work because you are injured, dealing with both the short-term and long-term effects of your injury and more — you probably don’t want anyone else to go through the same thing that you have been through. You might be particularly worried about the friends that you have who also ride.
Luckily, hiring a motorcycle accident attorney can do more than help you ensure that your medical bills are paid — it can also help protect others. For example, filing a lawsuit against the responsible party can help hold him or her accountable for irresponsible driving and other behaviors that put motorcyclists like you at risk. Plus, it can help raise awareness of these issues, which can encourage other drivers to drive safely when they are around you and your fellow bikers.
Not only can your motorcycle accident attorney help you in many ways, but he or she can also help protect the other bikers on the road. If you are interested in a consultation so that you can talk to a legal professional about the details of your accident, contact us at Heuser & Heuser today.
