In this video, attorney Ted Spaulding answers the question of how important it is to have a motorcycle accident attorney that also rides a bike.
Do you need a motorcycle injury attorney that also rides? Hi. I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer and I’m the founder here at Spaulding Injury Law. So this is a question I get a good bit from prospective clients that call me and it’s an interesting one, it’s really born out of in my experience marketing, right? So you get these lawyers that are sitting on a motorcycle, taking photographs for publications or their website or whatever touting that they’re also a rider, as if that gives you some sort of an advantage over the next personal injury lawyer. And quite frankly the answer is no it doesn’t. It may make you feel more comfortable as a motorcycle rider to also have a lawyer who rides and that’s perfectly fine, if that makes you feel more comfortable with that lawyer then, by all means, go with that lawyer. But you don’t need a motorcycle injury attorney that rides to get quality representation. What you need is a trial lawyer that will ultimately try your case, those are the attorneys that will get the most value for your damages. So you can have a lawyer who rides a motorcycle but is not a trial lawyer and in my experience how’s that gonna help you?
So, in my opinion, no you don’t need a motorcycle injury attorney that also rides to get quality representation, you just need to vet their experience, do they actually try cases? Are they just going to settle your case, are they a settlement mill? Those are the types of things that you need to really be asking, not whether they ride a motorcycle or not, really doesn’t matter. If they know how to try a motorcycle accident case in Georgia then that’s the type of an attorney that in my opinion that you would need. So no you don’t need a motorcycle injury attorney that rides.
