Call the police if you have been involved in an accident. Make sure to get a police report.
If you are an avid motorcyclist, you may have seen or experienced the serious injuries that can occur from being in a motorcycle accident. Accidents that involve a motorcycle don’t happen as often (statistically) as car accidents, but they tend to be more serious for the rider because of the lack of protection on a motorcycle.
What if you’re injured in a Georgia motorcycle accident, and it wasn’t your fault?
Serious injuries can turn a family’s world upside-down. Perhaps the injuries make it too difficult to go to work, or you have to miss a lot of work because of doctors appointments and physical therapy. The problem with this is the bills don’t stop coming just because you’re injured.
What’s worse, insurance companies aren’t looking out for you or your family’s best interest. It’s their job to save their company money on your claim. What does this mean for you?
You need to BE AWARE that the insurance company will try to lower the value of your claim. Why do you need to be aware of this? You may be tempted to settle your claim early, accepting a check for settlement. However, if your injury is serious, and you are unsure of what future medical treatment you will need, you may be signing away your rights to fair compensation (money).
If you have been injured, it wouldn’t hurt to talk to a Georgia Motorcycle Accident Attorney. A consultation will give you a better idea of your rights, whether or not you have a valid claim, and you will walk away from the consultation with a better understanding of what to expect next. Consulting Attorney James Murphy is always free, and there is no obligation to hire him after your free appointment. 770-577-3020
