WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS LAW FIRM AND OTHER ATTORNEYS?
MA Biker focuses in motorcycle accidents to protect the victims’ rights to recover compensation for injuries and damages. Not all lawyers are educated in motorcycle type mishaps or educated about the harm that can be caused even in slow speed crashes. This puts the individual who suffered harm at risk recovering a lower compensation amount unless they get a dead ringer. Breaking distance, roadway condition and other factors can play an important role in a crash that only an experienced motorcycle attorney would be aware of the relevancy. Because we work with scientists and engineers who do this as part of their job, we have become educated.
WHEN DO I PAY FOR LEGAL FEES FOR THE LEGAL REPRESENTATION I AM PROVIDED?
MA Biker works on a contingency basis, which means we do not recover legal fees until your case is settled. Most of the other costs may also be able to be deferred until there is a settlement or compensation awarded by the court in your case. It is also possible to defer medical treatment payment until your case is settled. We are committed to obtaining justice when negligence caused your crash to recover the compensation you are entitled to recover.
