I’ve Been Hurt in a Motorcycle Accident – Do I Need a Lawyer?

If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, your health and well-being can hang in the balance, and without the compensation to which you are entitled, you may not reach your fullest recovery. As a result, it’s always in your best interest to have an experienced Illinois motorcycle accident attorney in your corner.

The Other Driver’s Negligence

When you’re on your bike, you’re exceptionally vulnerable to every form of driver negligence, including all the following:

The Damages You’ve Experienced

As a result of the other driver’s negligence, you’ve experienced losses – or legal damages – that can include all the following:

  • Property damage to your motorcycle
  • Mounting medical bills that may be ongoing
  • Lost income that may involve a decrease in earning power
  • Pain and suffering

A dedicated motorcycle accident attorney will help to ensure that every element of your covered losses is included in your bike accident claim and will skillfully advocate ensuring your settlement adequately addresses these losses. 

How a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help

Your seasoned motorcycle accident attorney will take on many important tasks throughout the claims process, including all the following:

  • Your attorney will gather the available evidence, including physical evidence at the scene of the accident, the police report, and eyewitness testimony. 
  • Your attorney will hire any expert witnesses that are necessary to support the specifics of your claim.
  • Your attorney will have the necessary accident recreation models made to illustrate the mechanics of the accident that caused you to be injured.  
  • Your attorney will compile all the above elements into your strongest claim while demonstrating the other driver’s negligence in the process.
  • Your attorney will skillfully negotiate with the insurance company for a just settlement that addresses each of your categories of loss fairly.
  • Your attorney will be well prepared to file a lawsuit against the insurance company involved and proceed to court if the provider chooses not to engage in fair negotiations. 

Communicating with the Insurance Company

You’ve been injured by a negligent motorist, and you’re going to be hearing from that driver’s insurance provider regarding your claim. The truth of the matter is that insurance companies are profit-driven, and as a result, they pour a lot of effort into obtaining statements from claimants that proceed to harm their own claims. You are not required to make a statement to the insurance company, and you are advised not to do so. 

This is yet another job for your knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney to handle. When it comes to the insurance company, less is more, which makes taking a social media hiatus another good idea – the insurance company will be overly interested in every move you make on your social media accounts.
