A basic internet search for the best motorcycle injury lawyer in Colorado will likely return hundreds of results.
Many of the top options will not even show you attorneys in Colorado. Instead, you will see a list of attorneys who likely paid to appear at the top of an attorney recommendation website.
If you suffer injuries in a motorcycle crash, you need a personal injury lawyer who knows how to build a case strategy to maximize your recovery.
You cannot afford to rely on lists that rank attorneys by who pays the most. Instead, you need a motorcycle injury attorney with the knowledge and expertise to successfully represent your case.
Our team at the Tenge Law Firm is committed to working tirelessly on behalf of our clients to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve.
We compiled a list of things to look for when hiring your Colorado motorcycle injury lawyer. Contact our office if you have any questions or want to schedule an appointment with a member of our team.
1. Experience Handling Motorcycle Cases
The first thing to look for in your personal injury attorney is experience handling motorcycle injury lawsuits. You would not hire a pest control expert to look at a clogged drain.
Similarly, you should not hire a criminal defense attorney to represent your interests in a personal injury lawsuit. The criminal and civil systems use different rules and operate in different ways.
Hiring a lawyer who regularly represents victims injured by another person’s negligence is vital to your claim.
2. Knowledge of Colorado Motorcycle Laws
Every state enforces different laws for motorcycles. If you suffer injuries in a motorcycle collision in Colorado, you need a lawyer who is well-versed in Colorado laws involving motorcycles.
For example, Colorado traffic laws do not allow lane-splitting. Thus, if a motorcyclist is injured while lane-splitting, they may bear some liability.
However, some liability does not prevent a Colorado motorcycle accident victim from recovering in a personal injury suit.
Under Colorado’s comparative negligence system, you can recover losses through a motorcycle accident claim as long as you are not 50% or more at fault for the collision.
3. Reviews from Former Clients
Before you hire a motorcycle injury attorney, you want to see what other people have to say about them.
If there are multiple reviews indicating an attorney does not keep in contact with their clients or provides inaccurate advice, you can mark them off your list of potential lawyers immediately.
See what our clients have to say about Tenge Law Firm below.
“Todd, Alyssa & the entire staff were AMAZING! After my son’s first attorney dropped the ball on his car accident injury case this firm went immediately to work. Every time I called for an update or to have questions answered my call was taken by either Todd or his paralegal Alyssa . . . .” — Tracie
“The Tenge Law Firm assisted me for years as I recovered from and went through a personal injury lawsuit caused by a drunk driver. Liz, Todd, and team were extremely empathetic and supportive – always checking in on my health and recommending the best health care providers in the area. Not only did they care about winning the lawsuit, but they cared about my personal recovery process as well . . . .” — Meredith
These are just a few testimonials from our former clients. We pride ourselves on offering our clients high-quality legal services.
4. Discuss Fee Arrangements
A motorcycle accident can result in severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment, in addition to property damage and lost wages. The last thing you want to worry about in the face of these mounting expenses is your attorneys’ fees.
Tenge Law Firm operates on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t get paid unless we recover a settlement or judgment on your behalf. Contact our team today to discuss your case with one of our attorneys.
5. Attend a Free Consultation
Many personal injury attorneys offer free initial consultations where the client can provide details about their case and discuss their expectations.
This first meeting is a good opportunity to evaluate your potential motorcycle injury attorney. A motorcycle accident often leaves victims feeling vulnerable and confused about the complex civil process.
Thus, you want to hire an attorney who puts you at ease and adequately explains your options surrounding your claim.
Once you participate in the free consultation, you will have a better understanding of the lawyer’s characteristics and how you communicate. Going to an initial consultation does not mean you must hire that attorney to represent you.
6. Results in Motorcycle Cases
As stated earlier, an attorney with experience handling personal injury matters is critical to your case. Case results from motorcycle settlements and judgments can demonstrate the extent of an attorney’s experience.
Our team recovered more than a million dollars on behalf of a motorcyclist who suffered a traumatic brain injury when a driver pulled out in front of her. The at-fault driver’s insurance company settled the motorcycle injury lawsuit approximately two months before trial.
Many clients know the frustration of their attorney failing to get back to them in a timely manner or keep them updated about developments in their case. The civil process is confusing enough without your attorney keeping you in the dark.
Our team prioritizes communication with our clients, keeping them well-informed of any changes and deadlines approaching for your case.
