Do Insurance Companies Really Try to Deny a Fair Settlement for Victims of Motorcycle Accidents? (Part Two)
In Part Two of our discussion regarding how insurance companies may try to deny a fair settlement for victims of motorcycle crashes, we start by addressing that there is a way to fight the law that allows insurance companies to deny fair payment to a victim who was not wearing a helmet. An insurance company may imply that you simply cannot argue this law and that it’s set in stone, but the truth of the matter is that the burden of proof rests with the at fault driver, not with the injured victim. Therefore, the at fault driver and their insurance company have a higher standard to meet. By hiring a skilled attorney – one with experience in dealing with motorcycle accidents in Glendale – you may still be able to receive full compensation for your injuries. A top notch attorney will be able to hire expert witnesses, evaluate the facts and the law, and develop strong legal arguments on your behalf.
Another way in which an insurance company will sometimes try to deny compensation is to not share information about the uninsured and underinsured motorist laws. You might not have this kind of coverage in your current motorcycle accident policy, but you may have it if you own a car with insurance or if one of your family member’s who lives with you owns a car with this type of coverage. If that’s the case, then you can actually use this portion of your car insurance policy to help you pay for things like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
