Have You Been Hurt In A Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle accidents can be very serious—after all, unlike other kinds of motor vehicle, when you’re on a motorcycle and you are struck, you don’t have the protection of seatbelts, walls and a roof around you to grant further protection. The injuries you suffer from this kind of incident can be catastrophic in nature, turning your whole life upside down.
When all you want is to regain control of your life, but your medical bills keep piling up and you can’t work anymore, you need help to secure the compensation you deserve. Explore the complete motorcycle injury attorney services offered by Peter N. Davis and Associates, LLC, and how we can get you compensation for your injury.
The Vulnerability of Motorcyclists
There’s one common piece of advice that every motorcyclist needs to follow: always assume the other driver can’t see you. In over 66% of all accidents between cars and motorcycles, the car driver is found to be responsible for the accident. When you are struck by a car, you should immediately get seen by a doctor, even if you don’t feel injured.
Many injuries from these kinds of incidents can take days or even weeks to show up, but if you see a doctor right away, they can quickly be detected and treated before they become disabling. In addition, the sooner you are seen by a doctor, the better it looks when you have to pursue damages for the injuries you’ve suffered.
Insurance Company Non-Payment Efforts
Insurance companies don’t like to pay out on accidents. That may seem hard to believe, but it’s true. These companies are in the business of making profits, which take a hit every time they have to pay out on the premiums they collect. This means they’ll do everything from tendering a very low-ball offer to trying to threaten you with getting nothing if you go to court, to avoid a major payout.
They will result to bullying, strong-arm tactics, trickery, and might even try to claim that you’re the negligent one. When you’re facing this kind of pressure, it can be scary, confusing and enraging. You’re not sure where to turn or what to do. Fortunately, there is someone out there who can help—the most important thing to remember is, never apologize and never sign anything!
