At The O'Connor Law Firm, our talented motorcycle accident attorneys in Kansas City work hard to protect your rights and seek the justice you deserve. Those who drive motorcycles are highly vulnerable, without the protection that other motorists have. Motorists often feel that they have the "right of way" and that bikers have no rights. At other times, someone driving a car will simply not see you in their side or rear-view mirrors. When you are in need of a skilled lawyer, count on us to offer skilled and effective legal counsel.
While it is true that motorcycles are not as easily seen as other cars, many motorists intentionally drive in an aggressive manner where motorcycles are concerned. Sudden lane changes or trying to "cut you off" can end in a violent crash. A car may turn in front of you, the driver claiming that they did not see you. Whether your injuries are minor or serious, a talented motorcycle accidents lawyer will offer you the guidance you need to determine how to proceed as far as your legal.
It certainly is not fair, but even jurors and judges sometimes tend to lean to the favor of the individual driving a car. Some people are simply predisposed to the notion that those who drive motorcycles are careless or drive dangerously any time they are on their bike. An experienced motorcycle crash attorney will work aggressively to overcome those prejudices and to obtain the fair compensation that you are entitled to as a victim.
When you are involved in an accident it is important to know that time is of the essence. Evidence that is essential to proving your case must be preserved and an investigation begun as soon as possible. Motorcyclists often suffer severe head, neck and back injuries, and the medical costs related to these injuries can be astounding. As a competent team, we at The O'Connor Law Firm examine every spec of evidence and delve in to the details in order to protect your rights and obtain the full compensation you deserve.
What compensation may you be entitled to? Depending upon the nature of your injuries and the accident, you may be entitled to the costs of medical expenses both past and future, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, mental anguish and other expenses. Be sure that the other motorist's insurance company will try to convince you that you do not need to consult with a motorcycle injury attorney, as they will compensate you fairly for your injuries. This is a fallacy, so do not let the insurance companies fool you. Contact the The O'Connor Law Firm for strong, effective legal counsel you can count on.
