Do I need a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Raleigh, NC?
Let’s face it; many people have preconceived notions regarding motorcyclists and motorcycle crashes. This includes insurance companies and insurance adjusters who review motorcycle accident claims. Motorcyclists will often be blamed for the crash under the incorrect assumption that riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous. This is especially so for motorcycle accidents occurring in North Carolina because our state follows the doctrine of contributory negligence which bars recovery by a motorcyclist or driver who is partially at fault for an accident. Thus, if the insurance company can point to anything that the motorcycle driver did that contributed to the accident, they can try to deny the claim.
Often, the insurance company will attempt to obtain a statement from the motorcyclist immediately after the accident, before the rider obtains an attorney. Since the insurance companies handle these claims every day, they know exactly what questions to ask and how to ask them so that they can deny the claim. As a result, it is extremely important for motorcyclist involved in an accident to seek attorney representation immediately after a motorcycle accident. A Raleigh motorcycle accident attorney will explain your rights and preserve your claim so that you are properly compensated for your injuries. If you are involved in a motorcycle crash in Raleigh, Fayetteville, Durham, or anywhere in North Carolina, call Hemmings & Stevens today for a free consultation.
