How to Choose the Attorney?

One way may be to ask friends or family for recommendations or advice from other motorcyclist or bikers. Another method may be to speak with a former attorney that you had employed on another matter. Go online and review sites. Or read articles by different car accident attorneys until you have established an authority in handling injuries and fighting insurance companies in Georgia.


Joseph P. McClelland, LLC 1075 Peachtree St NE, Ste 3650 Atlanta, Georgia 30309 (404) 381-8584Meeting for the first time with your injury lawyer, you are interviewing their law firm. Therefore, you should have questions that you want answered about the insurance company responsible and representation of recent motorcyclists and victims. Inquire as to what law school they attended. Ask about memberships into different states bars. Inquire as to their level of experience practicing law in Georgia and have they filed suit against drivers or a driver for the wrongful death of the victim. Ask what percentage of their caseload involves personal injury cases.  Has the Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer ever helped motorcycle riders in a crash that were riding without a helmet and suffered serious damages in that motorcycle crash?

Another important factor in choosing the best lawyer is about their personality. They don’t have to ride motorcycles like you, however, it is important that you have a level of comfortableness and appreciation for the individual. I spent a lot of time on the phone and in person with clients.

Important Insurance Coverage Tip:  If you drive a bike, then you owe it to yourself and the people that rely on you to go and get a copy of your insurance policy.  Look at it in detail.  Find what amount of insurance you have that relate to:

  • Medical Payment Insurance and
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage

No one gets into a small motorcycle crash.  Insurance will be needed, but do you have the right type.  First up, medical payment insurance is important.  An emergency room must treat you for your injuries, but no other medical facility has to.  You want the best medical attention when you are injured.  This policy pays doctors directly.  Therefore, you will be able to have the proper medical professionals treat your injuries.

Next, you need to find uninsured motorist coverage in your motorcycle insurance policy.  Some people are rotten and no good.  When they hit you, they will flee the scene of the accident.  You are on the ground and will be very unlikely to get any valuable information.  You will still be on the ground.  Uninsured motorist coverage will provide you with coverage in these hit and run situations.  

Further, the average driver only has $25,000 in coverage, so you need an insurance attorney who knows how to proceed.  A few broken bones exceeds that by far.  Plus, that leaves you will not compensation for pain and suffering.  Uninsured motorist coverage helps in these situations.  Contact me to represent you as your injury lawyer to protect your interest and fight for compensation to you.
