Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcyclists and generally get the short end of the stick. Don’t ask why. Maybe drivers are jealous that they cant get to their destination as fast as a motorcyclist can? It doesn’t end there. When a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident, the general consensus among insurance companies and their claims adjusters is that the motorcyclist is the one that caused the incident and/or is the one at fault. Insurance companies are notorious for denying claims, especially, on motorcycle claims. They are in business to make a profit– not to pay claims.
Don’t worry. If you have injuries, hire a California motorcycle accident lawyer and have him/her handle the matter for you and avoid the stress involved in getting the insurance company to pay for your damages.
Have your lawyer examine any document before signing it. Do NOT give any statements to the other party’s Insurance company, especially a recorded statement. Insurance companies take advantage of injured individuals by having them sign a “release” for a nominal offer. Sometimes an offer of money that doesn’t even cover ones damages. They will offer this without knowing the full extent of the injuries. Insurance Companies know that an offer of an immediate but nominal settlement will save them money in the long run and will get them out of a claims process quickly. Unfortunately, more often than not, people think they have no choice and accept such unreasonable settlements. However, you do have a choice and there are attorneys you can hire without paying anything out of pocket until you obtain a favorable money settlement. You don’t have anything to lose.
Make sure to keep your bike, clothing, helmet, jacket and other gear in a safe place as these are evidence that can come handy in the claims process and in your case.
