Clearwater Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
At Dolman Law Group, we are Clearwater motorcycle accident lawyers that are exceptionally well versed in Florida personal injury laws. If you have been injured as a result of a motorcycle accident, specifically a collision that caused substantial damage, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of your attorney’s qualifications and the unique dynamics surrounding a motorcycle accident case in Florida.
Choosing the Right Clearwater Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Many attorneys fashion themselves as the best option for bikers involved in a motorcycle accident; they pass themselves off as authentic bikers and try to create the impression that being a biker equates to being the most competent to handle a claim or case on behalf of a victim. Some of these purported biker attorneys only fashion themselves as bikers as a marketing tool, when, in reality, they are not a motorcycle enthusiast. We find such actions to be disingenuous.
Even more troubling is the puffery and misrepresentations offered by such attorneys. A victim should be more concerned with the skills and qualifications of their attorney than they are with whether the attorney looks good on a bike or is legitimately a rider. The attorney should have substantial experience in representing injured motorcyclists and should be educated on the dangers and common problems that riding a motorcycle can cause clients. Further, the motorcycle accident lawyer or firm must be experienced in litigating on behalf of motorcycle accident victims and have the resources, willingness and ability to take the case to trial if necessary.
Many attorneys, including some of the biggest advertisers either do not litigate themselves or pass the litigation work off to another law firm. It important for the injured party to inquire about the attorney’s experience litigating cases, whether the attorney or law firm handles its own litigation, and whether the firm or attorney has the resources necessary to zealously advance the case to trial if necessary. It is essential to consult with an experienced and competent Clearwater motorcycle accident injury attorney.
Minimizing the amount of distracted drivers on the road is a real passion at The Dolman Law Group. We aggressively litigate cases with the intent to hold negligent drivers responsible for the carelessness of inattentive driving. The impact of this negligence is even more evident in cases involving motorcycles, which is why The Dolman Law Group is dedicated to zealously representing the Tampa Bay motorcycling community. Even though a motorcycle may be less visible than a car, bikers have just as much right to safety on the road.
Consult With an Experienced Clearwater Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Due to the structure of a motorcycle, a collision with an automobile or truck can result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death as the motorcyclist is not surrounded by metal serving as a protective barrier. Further, motorcyclists are not restrained drivers, as safety belts do not serve a purpose for operators of a motorcycle. The only thing separating the driver and the open road is his or her clothes and hopefully a safety helmet.
Electing to pursue a motorcycle accident claim on your own without the guidance of a Clearwater motorcycle accident lawyer is a tremendous risk and a gamble you cannot afford to take. Insurance carriers take full advantage of those who are not represented by legal counsel let alone those represented by big advertising mill law firms where the attorney fails to pay close attention to the unique factors concerning each case; specifically those involving motorcyclists.
An experienced and competent motorcycle injury attorney should have a thorough understanding of closed head and traumatic brain injuries. Many motorcycle accidents result in mild to very serious and even fatal traumatic brain injuries due to the structure of the motorcycle itself.
For more information about Dolman Law Groups’ qualifications and knowledge in handling traumatic brain injuries, please turn your attention to our blog section where we routinely post articles regarding this fluid and rapidly evolving area of science and the law. We have built a strong reputation in the Tampa Bay area legal community for the aggressive and personal representation we offer to our clients. At the Dolman Law Group, each client is provided the cell phone number and email address for their handling attorney. This fosters proper client communications that are generally not seen at the largest personal injury firms and the firm with the prolific advertising.
Insurance carriers often try to take advantage of bikers and label them as careless or reckless, based solely on their decision to travel on two wheels. We all know that this is a fallacy. Even the most reasonable and careful motorcyclist cannot always guard against negligence and other dangers found on the road.
As Florida motorcycle accident lawyers, we regularly represent the interests of victims who have been treated unfairly by an insurance company. Whether you are the motorcycle rider or the driver, Dolman Law Group is committed to handling your injury claim and advancing the case into litigation if the insurance carrier refuses to evaluate the claim in a fair and prudent manner.
