Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be an overwhelming experience. You have to contend with and recover from any physical injuries that occurred. You also will have to battle with insurance companies and hospital bills.
Before you give any hospital staff any information about your motorcycle insurance, you need to talk to a personal injury attorney immediately. If you are unable to meet with a personal injury attorney due to your injuries, consider sending a family member for a free consultation, it is that important.
Hospitals may try and charge your motorcycle insurance higher medical rates than your health insurance. These higher medical bill rates can take away from any potential future money you make in a settlement. This money should go to you and not the hospital.
Motorcycles can be exciting to ride out along the highways and country roads of Texas. Statistically speaking, inside the city, the danger level goes up for motorcyclists. Traffic lights, intersections, drunk drivers, all can negatively impact the rider of a motorcycle and cause a motorcycle accident.
The more cars that are around a motorcycle, the greater the chances are of an accident. Drivers of cars and trucks tend to not pay as much attention to motorcycles as their do to larger vehicles. This causes them to pull out more often in front of motorcycles or change lanes into them. Motorcycles tend to not take up as much of a visual footprint. They can be easily missed by a driver which can cause a motorcycle accident.
A motorcycle accident attorney can investigate what caused the accident and find those parties responsible for it accountable.
They will also fight for you. Whether it be with the insurance companies who will not want to pay, or through the court systems to force them to pay. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need a personal injury attorney in your corner. One who is fighting for your recovery.
