What should I do after being injured in a motorcycle accident?
Recently, I got a call from a gentleman who had been injured in a motorcycle accident, and he asked me what he should do. The first thing I told him is he needs to seek medical treatment immediately. In this case, I found that he was in the hospital, so I told him he needs to follow the doctor’s orders. Those things are very important so that he has the best chance at a recovery as possible, whether it be a full recovery or a partial recovery.
Next, I told him he needs to hire an attorney. It’s important to hire an attorney quickly so they can investigate what happened. Evidence gets lost and witnesses can forget. Even if the insurance company’s claiming they’re not disputing liability at this stage, they might dispute liability later. It’s important to gather all of that evidence.
Lastly, it’s important to hire the right attorney. The right attorney is someone who has experience in motorcycle accidents and is a trial attorney. Trial attorneys are treated differently by insurance companies because they don’t want to go to trial. Also, if you aren’t able to get your case resolved in settlement, that means you have an attorney who’s ready to go to trial.
