Steps to Take After a Motorcycle Accident | Mistakes to Avoid
When you are involved in a motorcycle accident where you are seeking compensation, you are more than likely going to be dealing with the liable party’s insurance company. Their main goal is to keep their costs low. They are not going to be prioritizing your compensation. When you are injured and seeking compensation, the liable party’s insurance company will be reaching out to you to get a recorded statement from you.
In this statement they will be asking you questions that are meant to illicit a particular response from you. If they can get the response they are looking to get, you will likely damage your case. We hope that, when our clients come in, they have not taken this call or made this statement because once you have given the insurance company something to use against you, you cannot get this back from them.
The are trained to get you to damage your case. If you put yourself at fault for the accident, they are going to be able to try to either reduce what they owe you or eliminate your claim altogether. These are things we are trying to help you avoid doing. When you hire a lawyer, they can take over all of the communications with the liable party’s insurance company so that you and your rights to full compensation are being protected.
