Although it is often perceived that motorcyclists are reckless drivers and may use the small build of their vehicle to travel through traffic aggressively, usually the case is actually that the driver of a car does not see the motorcycle and carelessly hits them. In these cases, the insurance company representing the other driver doesn’t want the motorcycle rider to hire an attorney. They will have their own lawyer who wants to settle quickly and for as little money as possible. By trying to settle everything right away, the insurance company will can get out of paying any financial support that may be needed to deal with severe injuries that do not surface till some time after the accident itself. Insurance companies are working strictly to make economic decisions that minimize the amount of money paid out. It is for this reason that motorcycle riders should invest in motorcycle insurance, which is required by most states and can protect an injured rider against an uninsured motorist.
