Avoid Motorcycle Accident Case Mistakes
If you are seeking compensation after you have been hurting while riding your motorcycle, it is very important that you avoid motorcycle accident case mistakes. Here is what you need to know.
Avoid Motorcycle Accident Case Mistakes | Don’t Talk to the Insurance Company
It’s not unusual, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident that the adjuster, for the other driver is going to contact you and want to take a recorded statement. They do it for a number of reasons. Number one, they are out there to protect their interests. They are there to protect the insurance company. They are not out there conducting a neutral investigation, seeing what they can do to help you. They contact you early because they know that you have been seriously hurt and you may be on medications. You may not be in any condition to answer their questions. In fact, for many motorcycle crash cases, you have absolutely no memory of what happened. They’re going to pin you down to that. They’re going to try and use that against you to deny or lessen the value of your claim. When you give them that information, they are not getting it to help you or, like I said, conduct a neutral investigation. They want to use those words against you. Before you ever talk to an insurance adjuster or give a recorded statement in a motorcycle crash claim, you have to have an attorney. Before you do anything, call a skilled and experienced motorcycle trial attorney and get the advice that you need.
Avoid Motorcycle Accident Case Mistakes | Don’t Hire the Wrong Attorney
People will call and ask, “Do I really need a lawyer if I’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Nevada or Las Vegas?” The answer is, absolutely yes. Motorcycle crashes are a unique type of crash and they involve many different issues. In addition to that, there are aspects of a motorcycle crash claim that the insurance companies try and take advantage of. You need an attorney who is specifically skilled and experienced in dealing with motorcycle crash claims. You don’t need a lawyer who rides a motorcycle; you need a board certified personal injury specialist who is a trial lawyer. The insurance companies are going to try and blame you for the crash, minimize your damages, and weasel out of their responsibility. If you’ve got a lawyer who just rides a motorcycle, what good is that going to do you? You need someone who knows how to build a case. You’ve got to have somebody who’s up to the task. You don’t need a motorcycle rider, you need a trial lawyer.
