If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you likely have many questions, not the least of which could be how you are going to pay for the expensive health care bills you will incur as a result of the crash. When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, being struck while riding a motorcycle is one of the worst-case scenarios for any person. In most cases, an injured motorcyclist is lucky to escape with his or her life.
In the face of such serious injury? and possibly serious medical bills?it can be extremely tempting for a motorcycle accident victim to accept whatever compensation they are offered by an insurance company. However, victims are encouraged to resist this temptation, because in many instances, when an insurance company makes an offer for a settlement, the offer is substantially lower than what a victim could recover with a successful lawsuit.
Most of the time, insurance companies simply look at data, including the factors that contributed to the accident, the types of vehicles involved in the accident and others. They base their settlements on this information, with very little regard to the particulars of the case, including the full extent of the injuries that a victim suffered.
Victims who do not take a settlement offer could instead pursue compensation through the courts, and with the help of an attorney, these victims can prove the full extent of their injuries, increasing the compensation that they can recover.
