Attorneys For Motorcycle Collisions in California
Do I need a motorcycle accident attorney?
Any individual that has been in a motorcycle accident should seek the counsel of a motorcycle accident attorney. Often, if the defendants are proven to be liable, you may be contacted directly by their insurance company to discuss your compensation. If you are without counsel, there is a chance that you will not receive the total amount of payment that you are owed. While the amount they are offering may sound satisfactory at first, a motorcycle accident attorney will be able to factor in the cost of your future medical expenses, vehicle repairs, wages lost, and rehabilitation, the cost of which may surpass what the insurance company initially offers. There is also the chance that the defendant’s attorney may attempt to file for partial negligence, which may implicate that you are partially at fault for the accident. Without an attorney, this accusation may be hard to manoeuvre and affect the pace at which you receive your compensation for your accident. If the defendant’s attorney proves that you are partially at fault, the amount of payment you were once eligible to receive may also decrease. This section of the law can be complex, and if you are not trained in how to manoeuvre it, you may face serious financial complications during a time in which you may not be able to recuperate from a financial loss.
