How Can We Help?

LOUISVILLE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Any type of accident can be life-changing, but if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, the injuries that you suffered can be particularly traumatic.

The outskirts of Louisville are filled with many scenic roads perfect for a Sunday afternoon motorcycle ride. According to data compiled in 2017 by the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, however, these rides are getting more dangerous every year. Motorcycle accidents, including those involving fatalities, rose considerably from 2014 to 2017.

You can make your hobby safer by taking the standard precautions — wearing a helmet, obeying traffic laws, and watching out for distracted or otherwise negligent drivers. Sometimes, though, because of another party’s actions, an accident is inevitable. When it happens, get an attorney to fight for your rights. The Louisville motorcycle accident lawyers at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team want to help, and we offer a free case evaluation to discuss your options.

At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, We Fight for Fair Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims

Jetting around Louisville on your bike is exhilarating, but when things go wrong, the outcome is often much worse than a regular car crash. Since motorcycles lack many of the protective features of cars and trucks, riders bear the full brunt of an impact, leaving them vulnerable to severe, life-changing injuries.

If your life, or the life of your loved one, has been turned upside down by a motorcycle accident, the Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team can help you put it back together. We understand you probably have many concerns or fears about what to expect in the days and weeks ahead. For instance:

  • How will I afford my medical bills?
  • How much work will I have to miss?
  • How will I pay my bills if I am not working and getting a paycheck?
  • When can I expect to receive compensation from the insurance company?
  • What can I do if the other driver denies responsibility?
  • I have heard the insurance company will try to lower my claim value. Is that true?
  • Can I still file a claim if the accident was my fault, or partly my fault?

At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, our attorneys listen to you, understand your concerns and work with our legal team to take your worries off your shoulders.

Our support staff works full-time in our office to serve clients. If anything comes up during the process that causes you concern, you can always reach someone at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, and we will help you through it. To get in touch with us today, call 800-800-4600.

Is the Insurance Company Calling You? Do Not Answer Before Speaking With a Louisville Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

If you are eligible to collect compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries, chances are, most of that money will come from an insurance company, either yours or the other driver’s. To obtain that compensation, you must negotiate with the insurer, a process that can be fraught with difficulty and frustration.

If you have not already, you might receive a call in the coming days or weeks from your or the other driver’s insurance company. You should be extremely careful about what you say on this phone call and should consider not taking the call at all until after speaking with an attorney. Usually, one of two things happen on this call:

  • The insurance adjuster will ask you several pointed questions about the accident.
  • The insurer offers a quick settlement, hoping you will take it.

Be Careful About Answering Insurance Company Questions

If the insurance adjuster starts asking questions about how the accident occurred, that is the time to politely state that your attorney will get back to them, then end the call. Any answer you give has the potential to undermine the value of your claim, particularly if someone takes your words and places them in a context different from what you intended.

Do Not Accept a Settlement Before Speaking With Us

In many cases, you will receive a quick settlement offer from the adjuster. It can be tempting to take this offer, especially if you have bills piling up and are not able to work because of your injuries.

By taking the insurance company’s offer, however, you will likely hurt yourself in a couple of ways.

  • One, you almost always leave money on the table. That is because offers from the insurance company rarely include the full damages you could receive through a robust negotiation.
  • Two, once you agree to an offer, it is impossible to come back later and demand more. If your doctor determines, for example, that there are complications from your accident injuries, you will need to pay for any further care out of pocket. The insurer will not compensate you for anything you discover after you accept a settlement offer.
