A: Determining whether a given case should be pursued involves analyzing the case from both a liability and damages standpoint. Each case is unique and should be reviewed by an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer – someone who can identify all sources of recovery.
A major mistake motorcycle accident victims often make is seeking advice of a lawyer without much experience handling motorcycle accident cases. Having a case evaluated by an inexperienced accident attorney is like having a surgical procedure performed by a doctor who just finished his or her residency. It is always advisable to see more than one opinion, as they are generally free.
Factors which are considered in determining whether to pursue a motorcycle accident lawsuit include:
- strength of liability,
- nature and extent of damages,
- costs of litigation,
- time involved in litigation, and
- needs and wishes of the plaintiff and their family.
Because each case is unique, it is best to speak to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.
