A Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help You Recover
There’s no denying the dangers of riding a motorcycle. Motorcyclists are often cut off, followed too closely, or even pushed out of traffic by distracted drivers. A single mistake made by another can cause lifelong injuries and damage since motorcycles do not have protections such as seat belts and air bags to keep them safe.
If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by an automobile, you will need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who knows Wyoming law inside and out. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently place the blame for accidents solely on motorcyclists. They do this by portraying motorcycle riders as reckless speed freaks who flagrantly break the law as they weave in and out of traffic. They train their insurance adjusters to ask leading questions to blame motorcyclists for the injuries and losses they suffered at the hands of an irresponsible motorist. Don’t let the insurance companies stereotype you into accepting too small of settlement. Hire an Advocate to help you win your motorcycle accident claim.

The Advocates Motorcycle Accident Claim Process
Step 1: Investigate the Accident
The first steps The Advocates will take is to investigate your accident. Our attorneys do this by obtaining a police report about your accident, examining any photos or videos of the crash scene, and speaking to any relevant witnesses. Once we have established liability, we will begin to build your injury claim.
Step 2: Build Your Claim
Building your car accident injury claim is one of the most time-consuming steps in the entire process. Our staff must wait until you are finished treatment for your injuries before we can compile a comprehensive medical record of the injuries you have suffered from your accident. This is a timely process so be patient.
Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement
Once you are finished treating your injuries and your medical records have been gathered, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance. Afterwards, negotiations with your attorney will begin. If we are unable to negotiate a fair offer, then you will have the option to file a lawsuit.
Step 4: Litigate If Necessary
Time wise, litigation is the longest step in the claim process, possibly extending the life of your claim one or, even, two years. If you do decide to file a lawsuit, be prepared to potentially appear before a judge and jury.
3 Motorcycle Safety Tips to Consider
If you ride a motorcycle on a regular basis, chances are you will one day be involved in a motorcycle accident. While there’s no sure-fire way to prevent yourself from being harmed, there are a number of safety precautions you can take to minimize the damage you sustain. The following are the best 3 safety precautions every motorcyclist should take.
- Helmets Prevent Head Injuries
Did you know that a full 30% of motorcycle accident victims suffer disabling or possibly fatal head or neck injuries? The very best way to prevent such injuries is to always wear a helmet when out riding. Regardless of whether you’re riding for miles or just down the street, a helmet will keep your head safe.
- Defensive Driving is the Way to Go
Most people talk about driving defensively, but few understand exactly what such driving means, and even fewer put it into practice when out traveling on the roads. In short, driving defensively means you expect the unexpected. Simply because you obey all of the traffic laws and obey the speed limit, doesn’t mean everyone else does as well. This is why you should pay special attention to your surroundings when you ride a motorcycle and be sure to maintain a safe distance when following behind other vehicles. Remember, defensive driving is safe driving.
- Motorcycle Highway Style
While motorcycle riders are part and parcel to leather clothing as a fashion statement, leather pants and jackets go a long way in protecting riders from injury. Motorcyclists who are injured in motorcycle accidents often suffer deep scrapes, abrasions, painful cuts, lacerations, burns, and bruises. Such injuries could be prevented by leather clothing that is designed to absorb the impact and protect the skin of riders.
