If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, one of the first people that you are going to want to call is an accident attorney who has experience working on motorcycle accident cases. Below are some ways that a motorcycle accident attorney can assist you following your accident.
#1 Communicate with Your Insurance Company
Your attorney can communicate with your insurance company on your behalf or be present for all of the conversations that you have with your insurance company. Your attorney will make sure that you don't say anything that will make it seem like you were responsible for the accident.
Your attorney will also make sure that your insurance company provides you with all of the benefits that you are entitled to. You pay for insurance coverage, and your attorney will make sure that you get all of the benefits of that coverage.
#2 Communicate with the Police
After the accident, you may asked to make a statement to the police. The police may conduct an investigation to determine if any tickets should be handed out because of the accident. It is always best to be cautious when dealing with the police. Your attorney can handle all of your communications with the police. If you end up with tickets, they can represent you or recommend someone to represent you.
#3 Deal with Medical Payments
After your accident, you are going to be focused on getting the help that you need and getting better. You don't deserve to be worrying about how to pay your medical bills or avoiding calls from bill collectors.
Your attorney can talk to the facilities where you get your medical care and let them know that you will be getting a settlement to pay for your care. Your attorney may be able to get the medical facilities to agree to wait to bill you for your treatment or wait to send the bill to collections until you get your settlement.
#4 Pursue Legal Action
If you are not getting the compensation that you deserve, your attorney can move forward with a lawsuit to make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve. If your attorney is on hand from the beginning, they will already have all the facts of the case and the information that they need to move forward with a lawsuit.
The sooner you start working with an attorney, the better, especially if a lawsuit will be necessary to get the compensation you need to deal with your injuries.
