There is unfortunately a negative bias toward motorcyclists – they are often seen as “daredevils” and this puts them at a disadvantage in settlement negotiations. One of the common motorcyclist stereotypes is that of the reckless driver who weaves in and out of traffic, neglecting the rules of the road and the presence of other vehicles.More often than not, the motorcyclists involved in serious injury motorcycle accidents are responsible drivers who are put in unfortunate situations. Even the most experienced riders cannot always compensate for the negligence and misconduct of other drivers. Unfortunately, many jurors do not see things that way, and they will often display bias against the injured motorcyclist.To avoid this, experienced motorcycle accident lawyers will take special care during juror selection to identify potential jurors who may hold this type of bias. They will take the measures necessary to avoid allowing these jurors to be selected and hopefully avoid unfair opinions of their motorcyclist client.A good understanding of the nuances of motorcycle operation is sometimes vital to the understanding of the factors of the motorcycle accident.
