Do You Need a Phoenix Motorcycle Crash Attorney?
It’s a fact that not every collision that happens in Phoenix needs an attorney. Fender benders, or minor accidents, can usually be settled through the auto insurance companies with just a statement from each motorist. But when you’re a motorcycle rider, the likelihood that you will walk away from a crash with just damage to your bike is slim. You will more than likely sustain considerable injuries. Even then, why can’t you settle through the insurance company? While it is an option, there are reasons why you should consider speaking with an attorney instead:
- Your injuries may make it difficult, if not impossible, for you to work for weeks, months, or even years. The most significant injuries may leave you unable to work a full time job, or any job at all, for the rest of your life.
- Your injuries may be so severe that you require significant medical treatment, surgery, or long term care, which will cause your medical costs to rise to astronomical heights. Have you been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Phoenix?
- The insurance company may refuse to pay you more than a pittance of a settlement, or may try to blame you for part or all of the accident or your injuries to avoid having to pay you at all. This is common for motorcycle riders who were not wearing a helmet during their collision. Ask yourself if you know how to negotiate claims and if you know how to present a case that will protect your rights?
- The insurance company may try to drag out your case to avoid paying you, making it more and more difficult for you to hold out for the best settlement. Are you prepared to handle your motorcycle accident claim on your own?
