First, you should recognize the insurance company’s goal. The insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible to settle your motorcycle accident injury claim so that it can maximize its profits. To further its goal, the insurance adjuster may argue that your medical treatment is unnecessary.
The insurance adjuster is not a doctor, however, and a qualified medical professional should make your medical treatment decisions.
Continue Getting Medical Care Even if the Insurance Company Refuses to Pay
Do not stop getting medical care because an insurance adjuster refuses to pay for it. Instead, follow the advice of your doctor(s). If you fail to follow medical advice, you could suffer unnecessary pain and further injury. Additionally, it could impact your legal recovery.
Your motorcycle accident injury lawyer can advise you of different ways of paying for medical care while the insurance company disputes the costs. For example, your own health insurance company may pay for your medical costs and later be reimbursed by the motorcycle accident insurer or from your recovery of damages in a motorcycle accident lawsuit. Alternatively, some doctors will agree to be paid out of your settlement or court verdict if the insurance company disputes medical costs.
Protect Your Legal Rights After a Motorcycle Crash
When someone else causes your motorcycle accident injuries, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting reasonable and necessary medical care. Instead, you should do everything possible to get back to the way you were before the accident.

We strongly believe that every rider deserves a fair and just recovery that includes all past and future healthcare costs, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, physical pain compensation, and emotional suffering damages.
