What should I do if I am involved in motorcycle accident?
What do you need to do to protect your rights? In fact, a motorcycle accident victim called our law firm the other day and asked that question of one of our attorneys.
Here’s what our attorney explained. The first thing that you need to do is make sure that your follow up medical care is the best medical care you can get. People are kind of surprised that we emphasized that rather than the legal aspects. We can assist you by making some referrals to doctors who, even if you don’t have health insurance, they’ll see you. They’ll take care of you. You’ll probably need quite a bit of follow up, rehab, physical therapy, things like that. You may need a lot more than that. That’s the first step.
Give us a call. Even if you haven’t decided if you’re going to have us represent you, we’ll still make those referrals because we want you to get the best medical care possible. Then after that you want to make a wise choice for the law firm who’s going to represent you. Sometimes, those law firms claim to focus on motorcycle cases, but we really focus on this. Oftentimes, what they do is, when the injuries are so much more than the insurance, they spend most of their time just negotiating with the hospitals and insurance companies and try to bring the costs down so that at least their client gets a couple thousand or something in their pocket.
Call us early and even if you want to call several firms, that’s fine. Get information early and you’ll get a feel for who’s probably going to do the best job for taking care of your motorcycle injury case. We’re always looking for additional sources of recovery beyond the obvious, the insurance of the driver who caused the accident. One of our favorites is we look at do you own other vehicles? Do people in your household own other vehicles? Do they have full coverage?
If they have full coverage, do they have underinsured motorist coverage? If they do, we can often use that and it has no effect on their insurance rates and it helps you. If they don’t or you don’t, we may be able to bring a claim against your own insurance agent because they probably had a responsibility, especially if you’re a motorcycle rider to make sure that at least one of your vehicles had underinsured motorist coverage. That can be like free money for you.
Call us early. We know specialists who can diagnose concussions and there’s no one best treatment for traumatic brain injury. We’ll help you through that whole process. Try them all out and see which ones help you the most. Get legal help early. The statistics that insurance companies keep show that people who call, just make one call to a lawyer end up getting – even if they don’t hire a lawyer, they end up getting significantly more money than people who don’t. Was that call worth it? We hope so.
Remember, if you’re in a motorcycle accident, call us. The call is free. The information is free. The referrals are free even though they can make a huge difference in your case, tens of thousands of dollars or sometimes even potentially millions. Call because we really are here for you.
