Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident and need help? Read these 3 motorcycle accident questions for guidance, then give our office a call.
1. What’s the difference between motorcycle accident claims and car accident claims?
In motorcycle wrecks, very frequently, the injuries are very significant. If you ride, you know that if someone pulls out and makes an improper left turn in front of you, the consequences of that can be catastrophic. The serious nature of injuries and damages in motorcycle wrecks often causes the insurance company for the other driver to fight hard to prove that you were the one who was at fault. You want an attorney who knows how to combat that, who can go up against the insurance company, and who has the resources to show that the driver of the motorcycle wasn’t the one at fault.
2. How much is my motorcycle accident claim worth?
Each case value is going to be different and depends on various factors, including the types of injuries you’ve sustained, the amount of your medical bills, and what types of lost wages or lost income you may have. We will work to answer these questions so that we can determine the value of your claim. We will also assess the amount of money that we can potentially collect from the at-fault driver. Is this an individual who doesn’t have a lot of assets and has a minimum amount of insurance? Are there other parties we can look at? Is it a commercial vehicle? Are there, perhaps, claims against a governmental entity who designed the road where this wreck occurred? These are just some of the factors that we can assess to get the best value for your case.
3. Should I speak to an insurance adjuster after a motorcycle accident?
You may have recently been injured in a motorcycle wreck here in Georgia, and the insurance company may have already called you. Perhaps they tried to get a recorded statement from you about the wreck and about your injuries. Many victims in this scenario think, how can it hurt for me to speak with this representative of this insurance company? The insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. They are looking out for their bottom line. One of the largest insurance companies earned $8.8 billion in profits alone last year. When they call you up and ask you for a recorded statement, they’re not looking out for your interests. It is never a good idea to give a recorded statement to an insurance company. What you want to do is hire an attorney who is experienced in handling serious motorcycle wrecks here in Georgia. Let that lawyer advocate for you.
