Count on Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers to Protect Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident

If you are feeling scared or uncertain after your motorcycle accident, those thoughts are normal. It is okay to be angry, too, especially if the wreck was someone else’s fault but you are the one with significant injuries.

You may also have questions or concerns about what to expect in the days and weeks to come. For example:

  • What will happen if I cannot pay my medical bills? Will I stop receiving treatment?
  • How can I prove that the other driver was at fault and is responsible for my injuries?
  • What if the insurance company tries to deny or devalue my claim?
  • How long will I have to wait to get paid?

Your Hughes & Coleman attorney can answer these questions for you. If you are worried about creditors hounding you over bills, we can send cease-and-desist letters, so they stop bothering you until your compensation comes in.

We can pursue the other driver or responsible party and collect evidence to prove they were at fault. Our attorneys are fierce negotiators who are prepared for every tactic the insurance company might use to try to reduce or deny your claim.

Call Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers Before You Speak With the Insurance Company

In most motorcycle accident cases, the money to pay for damages comes from an insurance company. But insurance companies have a financial incentive to pay as little as possible. If they can come up with justification to deny or reduce your claim, you can expect them to do so.

To win against the insurance company, you have to match their toughness and shrewdness in the negotiation process. That is where we come in. Our motorcycle lawyers in Elizabethtown have won substantial insurance settlements for our clients. We want to put that experience to work for you.

We can help you avoid the two biggest mistakes motorcycle accident victims make when dealing with insurance companies:

Answering Questions Without a Lawyer

If the insurance company calls you after the accident — a likely scenario — it is good idea to refrain from answering any questions without a lawyer. There is simply no upside, and quite a few of risks to doing so.

The insurer can use anything you say during your call against you. A seemingly innocent statement could allow them to deny or devalue your claim. Your attorney can deal with them on your behalf and make sure every statement you make is to your benefit.

Accepting a Subpar Settlement

Another big mistake accident victims make is accepting the first settlement offer the insurance company makes. This decision almost always results in settling for far less than your claim is worth. Insurers rarely volunteer to pay you everything you deserve, and if you accept that first settlement offer, you cannot go back later and ask for more.

Our attorneys will handle that negotiation on your behalf and make sure you do not settle for less.

Count on the Hughes & Coleman® Injury Lawyers Team to Fight for Fair Compensation

When we accept your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your accident and injuries. Along with identifying the responsible parties and collecting the evidence we need to prove their liability, this investigation helps us determine what your case is worth. More specifically, we want to know the damages you have suffered and their monetary value. That way, we can pursue the responsible party and demand they pay for all of it.

Your motorcycle accident settlement or award may include compensation for some or all of the following damages:

Medical Expenses

These include your hospital bills, surgery costs, and doctor copays, as well as the cost of items such as medical devices, home modifications, and prescription medication.

Lost Wages

This refers to the income you have been unable to earn while missing work to recover from your injuries. We expect the responsible party and their insurer to cover the full cost of your time away from work. As an example, if you earn $5,000 per month and have to miss five months of work, we will seek $25,000 in damages for lost wages.

Reduced Earning Capacity

This refers to your long-term ability to earn a living. If your injury affects the type or amount of work you can do and reduces your long-term income, we seek compensation for the difference between what you can earn and what you should be earning.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering refers both to the physical and the emotional distress you have experienced due to your injury.
