Motorcyclists have a reputation as being the bad boys of the road, but the reality is that motorcyclists are the victims of the road. When persons are riding motorcycles, they are very vulnerable. Automobile drivers do not expect to see motorcyclists and when they do, they do not give them the same spacing as they would cars. When collisions occur, the motorcyclist is often very badly injured.
Jurors are biased against motorcyclists, so case preparation is very important. Evidence must be preserved. Accident reconstruction often is required, and it is tricky since the dynamics of motorcycles are not the same as automobiles. A lawyer with real world experience riding motorcycles has a major advantage in working up these cases.
