Insurance Companies and Motorcycle Accidents
A motorcycle accident happens quickly but can leave you with serious injuries. You have the right to file a claim with the insurance company for financial compensation. But that can be a very lengthy and complicated process. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Farrow & Pulice, P.A. know how insurance companies operate and can help you with your claim.
One of the first things our attorneys will do is determine the total amount of damages you have suffered. This includes all medical expenses for treating your injuries – now and in the future. It includes lost wages while your injuries leave you unable to work. And there may be other damages, also. Then we help you pursue compensation with the insurance company.
There are three things to keep in mind about insurance companies:
Insurance companies have misguided beliefs about motorcyclists. They think people who are into motorcycles are reckless daredevils who are always taking unnecessary risks. And if there’s an accident, they think the motorcycle operator must have been responsible somehow. But we know that most motorcyclists are safe and responsible.
Insurance companies don’t have your best interests in mind. They are not really concerned about whether or not you get enough money to cover your medical expenses. They are mostly concerned with protecting their profits. So they will question the extent of your injury, or even blame you for what happened. Anything to try to pay you as little as they possibly can.
Insurance companies just want you to go away. Soon after your motorcycle accident, they may offer you a settlement. But it won’t come anywhere close to covering all of the damages you have suffered. If you turn down their offer, their lawyers will work to weaken your case any way they can, hoping to intimidate you into settling for less money than you are owed.
