Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident
Anyone who has ever been in a motorcycle accident understands how stressful this type of situation can be. Hospital bills can add up quickly, and if the injured party needs to take time off from work to recover, paying rent, credit card bills and/or making mortgage payments can be a challenge.
Mental and physical recovery can be hard enough on its own; being unable to pay bills adds another layer of anxiety to an already stressful situation.
If the other driver was at fault, hiring a personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation you’ll need.
Reasons to speak with a lawyer
When you contact an attorney, they will ask you to provide them with the details of your case. They can help you determine if the other driver was at fault and whether you’re owed compensation to help offset medical expenses, pain, suffering and lost wages.
There are many benefits associated with working with a motorcycle accident attorney. First, he lawyer will be able to negotiate a far larger settlement than you’d be able to negotiate on your own.
Remember—the job of the defendant’s insurance company is to minimize losses, which means they will try to get you to agree to take a lesser, up-front amount. A $20, 000 settlement offer can seem like a lot of money, especially if you’re struggling to pay your bills, but if you need ongoing medical care, your lifelong expenses will likely exceed what the insurance company is offering you.
A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you navigate your decisions, and they’ll be able to provide you the best advice in term of how to navigate this complex legal process.
Not only will this help ensure you get the best possible settlement, it will allow you to focus on your healing. The attorney will be able to have someone investigate the case on your behalf, which means that someone else will do the heavy lifting.
