Motorcycle riders are often thought of as reckless. Many people believe they are daredevils willing to take risks for the ride. You may not care much about this bias until you are in an accident and the jury or insurance adjusters express it. In these cases, it’s best to hire a personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
Why Does Bias Matter?
Whether from the movies or personal interactions, many people have a motorcycle rider stereotype they believe. When you have an insurance adjuster with bias, it may mean they are less likely to believe your version of what happened in an accident. If you go to trial, the pool of jurors may not believe you either simply because of this stereotype.
The outcome of that misconception can be costly to you. If you fail to overcome this bias, it may mean you don’t get the financial compensation owed to you. Bias can impact both liability and recovery. These individuals, who are making decisions that will impact you for years to come, may think you are somehow to blame for what’s occurred. That’s dangerous when you have lost income, medical bills, pain, and suffering to overcome.
Imagine your situation if someone making these decisions has had a bad experience with a motorcycle rider. What if they just hate riders?
