How To Recover From Your Motorcycle Accident Without Getting Taken Advantage Of By The Insurance Company
Hopping on your bike and heading out onto an open road on a bright, sunny day is no doubt at the top of your list for favorite activities. As with most outdoor hobbies, there are a few downsides to riding a motorcycle.
Motorcycle accidents occur often, many of which result in fatalities or serious injury.
Whether you’re a recreational motorcyclist or ride your bike as a commuter to and from work every day, there’s always an inherent risk involved. No matter if you’re on a motorcycle or in a car, however, you can reasonably expect all other motorists with whom you’re sharing the road to adhere to traffic laws and safety regulations.
You’re not responsible for other people’s driving habits, but another driver’s actions can impede your ability to arrive safely to your destination.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyers That Provide Strong Post-Accident Support
No matter how cautious, alert and defensive a motorcyclist you are, there’s no way to predict how other nearby drivers may act at any given time. You can’t control another person’s driving behavior.
Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and others who are negligent can turn your motorcycle ride from enjoyable or uneventful into disaster in an instant.
If that happens, motorcycle lawyers like the experts at Kirshner, Groff & Diaz will be there with you to offer you complete and total support, care and rock-solid representation.
If you suffer injury in a collision another driver caused, there are several ways a motorcycle lawyer can be of assistance, as shown in the following list:
- An experienced attorney knows how to protect your rights, especially if an insurance agency tries to deny your claim. The last thing you’d feel like doing as you try to recover from your injuries would be to spend hours on the phone trying to convince an insurance agent that you’re injuries were a result of the accident in question.
- If you suffer severe injuries and other damages, a lawyer can help you activate a process for seeking financial recovery for your losses. Why should you bear the full financial burden of medical bills and other accident-related expenses when another person’s negligence caused the crash?
- An attorney can help identify fault and gather evidence that proves another driver’s negligence. If you file an injury claim, you are tasked with providing evidence in court to show that the defendant was negligent and that his or her negligence was a direct cause of your injuries.
Our legal support team understands how traumatizing a motorcycle collision can be. Surviving the blunt force trauma of a crash doesn’t guarantee you’ll have a swift or even a full recovery.
In fact, severe injuries can leave you with life-long disabilities that may impede your ability to return to work, as well as affect your ability to function independently in the course of your daily life.
Safety First, Followed By Strong Support If you Need It
You love to ride. Safety is your top priority and you take precautions to avoid an accident. You check your bike to make sure tires are properly inflated with good treads and also make sure your brake lights and signals are functioning before heading out onto the road.
If it’s raining, you know the roads might be slippery.
When all is said and done, no matter how safe you are, another person’s negligence or reckless behavior at the wheel can land you in the back of an ambulance and may change your life forever if you suffer brain trauma or other severe injuries.
We’re ready to help you get the care you need, as well as the maximum compensation for damages to which you may be entitled.
