When Should I Hire a Lawyer?
As a general rule, if at any time you do not feel comfortable handling your claim on your own, for any reason, you should consult with and hire a lawyer. Beyond that, there are no hard and fast rules. We have come up with a few of our own that we advise potential clients on to help them make a decision whether to hire us or not. Below are a few of those. If you were not injured in the accident and therefore only have a property damage claim, you likely do not need to hire a lawyer. This is because insurance companies typically do not play games with the value of the property damage.
If you were injured in the accident then it is more likely that you will want to hire an auto accident lawyer. As your claim increases in value, so does the chances that the insurance company is going to dig in and fight to minimize your claim as much as possible. So if you have bills over $10,000.00 or found out you have a major injury like a herniated disc or broken bone, it is probably time to hire a lawyer.
It’s beneficial to hire a lawyer that’s familiar with your local court systems. Knowing how the courts work, whether it’s directly in Atlanta or in Fulton County is always a benefit that is typically exclusive to lawyers.

What our clients say about us
“I filled out the online request form and received a call within a few minutes. The person that called me was Mr. Spaulding, not a third party representative. We spoke for several minutes and he advised me over the phone without the guarantee I would choose him as my Lawyer. I will recommend them to anyone and everyone I come in contact with needing their services.”- Cory Phillips
All the good reviews about Ted and this law firm are TRUE!!! I was involved in a car accident and he helped me every step of the way. He was concise and thoroughly explained my options. Even the paralegal was super helpful and checked on me regularly. I am really grateful for their help. I was able to get fully compensated and get the proper rehabilitation to get me back in previous condition. Everyone was so kind and I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. I recommend him already to my family and friends so hope this is helpful to others!- Victoria Akobundu
I was a bit worried about Ted having too many positive reviews, but the positive reviews proved to be entirely accurate. He spoke to me on the phone when I called about my mother’s horrific car accident which was the other driver’s fault – the fault has already been admitted by the other party’s insurance company. He was honest about whether we needed a lawyer or not – we do, I knew that. He was knowledgeable on the phone and gave me sound advice even before my mother hired him. He got to work on my mother’s behalf right away. My mother did not like driving even before the accident, and now she is even more reluctant to drive. Ted kindly came to her house and spoke to her at length about the process and reassured her that her sole concern at this moment is to get well. He is working on our behalf with all of the bureaucracy we are facing. These things can take a long time, so we will not have a resolution for a while. But my mother and i are very pleased we hired Ted to represent her interests. Everything he has told us seems to me to be very sound legal advice. Additionally, he has been sincere and caring in all of our interactions.- Elizabeth Housworth
“Ted Spaulding has represented us in several different situations, and we have won the case each time. As a litigator, he is excellent. He is competent and trustworthy, and we hold him in very high esteem.”- Sandi Sutton, Atlanta, GA

This is important for a number of reasons. First, there are nuances and details that are common in motorcycle accidents and it’s important that your lawyer understands those details in a manner where they can maximize the value of your case.
Hiring a law firm like Spaulding Injury Lawyers, who has represented numerous motorcycle accident victims, helps ensure those details are not overlooked and that every possible stone is unturned with regards to gathering the facts around your accident.
This detailed and comprehensive approach that our lawyers take with motorcycle accidents gives you and your family a much stronger chance of a successful outcome versus a firm who is inexperienced in motorcycle accidents.
A second reason why hiring an experienced motorcycle accident attorney matters so much is that your lawyer’s reputation matters immensely when you’re preparing to go to trial. You can be certain as you take legal action, that the lawyers on the other side are doing their research on your lawyer and asking questions like; How experienced is this law firm in cases like this? Do they have a track record of success in motorcycle accident cases? Most importantly; Are they trial lawyers or are they looking to settle quickly (and possibly cheaply)?
The answers to these questions about the law firm and attorneys you hire will have a massive impact on the success of your case. In short, if the opposition sees you have hired a top motorcycle accident law firm like Spaulding Injury Lawyers, it helps your case immensely.
Frequently Asked Motorcycle Accident Questions
The following are some common questions that victims involved in a motorcycle accident have.
For answers to your specific questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our legal team directly.
You are eligible to have someone else cover your medical bills and other losses if you can show that their negligence led to your motorcycle crash. There are many forms of negligence that can lead to motorcycle accidents, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Running red lights
- Aggressive driving
- Drowsy driving
- Failure to yield
- Improper lane changes
If another driver’s conduct caused the motorcycle crash, that driver should be responsible for any harm you suffered. In some cases, other parties might be liable as well, such as the employer of a driver on the job. The best way to know who should cover your losses is to have a motorcycle accident attorney review your case.
Even if someone else caused your accident, you cannot expect a check to simply arrive in the mail. Instead, you must take action to seek the compensation you deserve, which generally involves filing insurance claims against the at-fault driver’s insurance policy. You should demand the full value of your past and future losses from the insurer, which is a complicated calculation. Never risk asking for less than you need – have a trusted attorney make this calculation for you.
The insurance company will likely make a settlement offer, which will likely be far too low. This is a jumping-off point for negotiations, and you should never accept an insurance offer without the help of an injury lawyer. If your attorney cannot negotiate a fair settlement, you might need to take the case to civil court by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A skilled attorney will identify when this is the right move in your case.
Many insurance companies will advise claimants that legal representation is unnecessary. This is a tactic they use to minimize payments. Insurance adjusters know that they can often get unrepresented claimants to accept far less than those with attorneys. This is why you should not believe them when they say there is no need to call a lawyer. You always want a motorcycle accident attorney advocating for your rights to the insurance company.
There is no need to worry about cost, as our attorneys only get paid if you do. There is nothing to lose by discussing your situation with our Atlanta motorcycle accident attorneys today.
Some of the most common injuries that motorcyclists sustain in a collision are road rash, biker’s arm, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, crushed limbs, and fractured bones. Some of these injuries will continue to affect the victim’s life for months or years following the accident.
It’s possible that the victim may not ever recover from some of these injuries. Because of this, it’s important that you seek legal representation after a motorcycle accident to determine if you can recover compensation by filing a personal injury claim.
