Hiring an Attorney for a Motorcycle Accident Claim
Hiring an attorney to represent you with regard to your motorcycle accident claim is the first step to ensuring you receive the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries. Due to the nature of the vehicle involved, motorcycle accidents result in severe, traumatic injuries; therefore, damages tend to be very high in a motorcycle accident case. Insurance companies aggressively defend claims in motorcycle accident cases because the insurance company wants to decrease the amount of compensation it must pay to the victim.
Because of California’s comparative negligence standard, if it is determined that you are partially at fault for the accident, your claim will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. The insurance company will assign a team of professionals, including attorneys and adjusters, to immediately begin investigating the accident to find any evidence that can hurt your claim. You need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to level the playing field to protect your best interests. Our office will perform a thorough investigation to determine fault, identify key evidence and preserve that evidence to prove your claim. Never provide a recorded statement or discuss your claim with an insurance adjuster or other representative for the insurance company prior to consulting with our office.
As discussed above, the damages in a motorcycle accident case can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Hiring an attorney with experience in motorcycle accident claims is essential. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling motorcycle accident claims; therefore, we understand how important it is to include all of your damages, economic and non-economic, in your claim. We work closely with your physicians to ensure that every cost is included in the claim as well as a demand for compensation for any permanent conditions. We also work closely with experts to calculate your lost wages because of the accident including any future lost wages or decreased earning capacity due to your injuries. It is important to hire a motorcycle accident attorney who will do more than add up your medical bills and missed paychecks. This is not the true value of your claim.
If the insurance company refuses to settle your claim for a fair and just amount, you need a skilled, experienced trial attorney who is prepared and able to convince a jury that the at-fault party is responsible for your injuries. In some cases, the attorney must overcome unfair stereotypes of motorcyclists that some people believe. We have experience with this as well. To protect your rights inside and outside of the courtroom, contact our office as soon as possible after your motorcycle accident so that we can begin working for you.
