1. Claim Value
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.
2. Injury 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.
3. Speaking to an Insurance Adjuster
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.
4. What to Do After an Accident
One of the first things you need to do is speak to several attorneys to find the right one. When you’re looking for the right attorney for a motorcycle wreck in Georgia, you want a lawyer who handles personal injury cases, not other areas of law. You want a lawyer who not only handles personal injury cases, but who has experience handling motorcycle wrecks. You also want a lawyer who will go to trial, not just settle all their cases.
You want to hire that lawyer quickly, too. Evidence tends to disappear. Get the vehicles that were involved, and get those inspected by the right type of experts. Nowadays, vehicles have all sorts of electronic data that can be downloaded. You want an attorney who knows what to look for, who can hire the right types of experts, and who has the resources to hire those experts to collect that data before it disappears. You want attorneys who will gather witnesses or locate witnesses, get statements from those witnesses, and you want to do that quickly.
These are the types of things you want to do to protect your interests if you’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle wreck here in Georgia.
