You’ve never hired a lawyer before and you may be hesitant to do so now. You like to take care of yourself. However, you may be unsure about how to negotiate with the insurance company or about how to protect your fair recovery after a motorcycle accident leaves you injured.
Needing help after a motorcycle accident is not a weakness. In no way does it make you dependent on someone else. Instead, you are making the educated decision to hire a professional to represent your interests. You will remain in control of your case and you will decide when it is time to settle your claim, even if you hire a lawyer to help you with your claim.
A Lawyer Can Provide You With the Following Benefits
If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle crash and you hire a lawyer, then you may know for sure…
- How to avoid costly mistakes. Anything that you say to insurance adjusters can be used against you in settlement negotiations. An attorney can handle insurance communications for you so that you don’t have to worry about making a mistake.
- Whether a proposed settlement is fair. Experienced lawyers know if a proposed settlement is equitable based on the specific injuries that you suffered, the quality of the evidence in the case, and the unique facts of the case.
- That you have done everything that you can to protect your rights. You will not have to wonder whether you have done the right thing.
However, if you decide to handle the case yourself then you may be left with questions now and for years to come.
