The Inherent Biases A Texas Motorcycle Accident Victim Must Deal With on the Road to Fair Injury Compensation
The difference between motorcycle and car accidents goes much deeper than the obvious ones. Aside from the significant differences in the amount, and degree, of injuries, a motorcyclist must deal with after an accident at 30 miles an hour, as opposed to passengers in a car or pickup at that same speed, motorcycle accidents are falsely believed to be the same as car accidents in legal terms when this is not the case. Many in our industry believe, and reasonably so that a motorcycle rider who is injured in an accident starts with a massive disadvantage because the insurance companies have a negative bias toward motorcyclists by default. This bias quickly becomes apparent the moment an injured biker files a claim. This inflexible thinking can cloud motorcycle accident cases and make settling them with an insurance company or litigating them in civil court much more complex than passenger car accidents. Because you can be confident that if they end up in a trial, the lawyers for that insurance company will make sure they hammer this bias home to a receptive jury.
