It is important to retain an attorney for a motorcycle accident. Most likely in a motorcycle accident your injuries are going to be more severe than in a car accident. Also, there’s differences in the application of the law. Motorcycle riders do not have the opportunity to carry personal injury protection benefits or med pay because it’s so dangerous that those types of insurance aren’t provided.
On the other side of the coin, a motorcycle accident doesn’t have to meet the permanent injury threshold, but unfortunately most of them do because motorcycle injuries tend to be way more severe than car accident injuries, so yes, I would hire a lawyer if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident.
