Avenues for recovery
If you suffered a head injury, back injury or permanent scars from a motorcycle crash, how was your life different before your motorcycle accident? To obtain fair and just compensation, you must be able to answer this question. First, there are the medical expenses. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you can incur anywhere from $10,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. A disabling injury may require lifelong treatment and care.
A serious accident injury may also cause you to miss work. Missed work means lost income. However, a successful lawsuit can secure reimbursement for your lost wages. The accident probably resulted in property damage costs. Was your bike damaged? Totaled? In addition, you may be entitled to compensation for the daily pain and suffering you endure as a result of the accident.
Motorcycle accident claims
Since Mississippi is an at-fault state, you may file a claim against the at-fault driver, the driver’s insurance provider or even your own insurance provider. However, you must first prove that the other driver was liable for the accident. In motorcycle accidents, many parties and insurance companies quickly blame the motorcyclist.
If you receive a low settlement offer from an insurance company, an attorney can protect your right to seek proper reimbursement. Our firm has extensive experience negotiating favorable outcomes with insurance businesses throughout the state.
Never lie about your accident or your injuries. After your accident, your insurance provider sends an investigator to determine whether your claim is valid. Insurance investigators may contact and interview witnesses, visit the scene of the accident, photograph the scene, take photos of your car and inspect your car for damage. Additionally, they may contact your doctor or medical provider for information about your medical expenses.
