You should be looking for an attorney that has handled motorcycle accident claims before and knows the nuances between them and other kinds of accident claims. An attorney that knows how to handle them and knows what to do and knows which kind of doctors you might need to help your claim, knows if you’re going to need an accident re-constructionist on your case and what kind of accident re-constructionist you might need that might be helpful.
Additionally, the right attorney will know any other experts that might be necessary to help you with your claim such as an economic expert or a vocational rehabilitation expert that can help put your claim together to maximize the amount of return that you can get for your injuries.
Can an Attorney Help Negotiate Down Hospital or Medical Bills or Liens?
Part of our job, as your attorney, is to negotiate any medical bills that you have, any medical liens that you have, any Medicare liens that you have in regards to any payments that occurred on your behalf pursuant to this incident, even health insurance liens. These are things that we do as part of the service to try to help maximize the amount of money that you ultimately get in your pocket once a settlement or a jury verdict occurs.
What Happens if My Medical Bills are More than My Insurance or the Other Party’s Insurance Will Cover in My Motorcycle Accident?
Sometimes it happens that the amount of insurance available through the other side is less than the medical bills that are outstanding. When this happens, we try to negotiate your medical bills down so that ultimately you can get those bills paid in its entirety and still walk away with money in your pocket. This is not uncommon, it does happen and usually we are able to help accomplish that.
What Happens If I’m in an Accident with an Uninsured or an Underinsured Motorist?
If somebody hits you and they don’t have insurance, it’s going to be very difficult to obtain a settlement. What happens in this particular case is we check and make sure that there is absolutely no other means of insurance and if there is not, then we look towards the assets that the other driver has. If the other driver failed to have insurance coverage and has assets, then we make a decision as to whether or not to pursue other assets.
What Happens if a Loved One Dies in a Motorcycle Accident?
If you’ve had a loved one who unfortunately has passed away due to a motorcycle accident, which does happen, we can certainly help get a recovery for the family members through the estate, so it can be done, it has been done, and it is something that we can help with.
Have You Ever Had Clients so Traumatized by an Accident that they Gave up Riding Motorcycles?
It does happen that when people have had a motorcycle accident and they get hurt or they get severely hurt that they don’t ever want to ride a motorcycle again. Certainly, when a motorcycle accident happens and they have some problems and they’re feeling like this, if necessary, we’ll see if we can find a psychologist to help and to try to help them think about things differently so that ultimately they can go back on a motorcycle again. Absolutely, it does happen but there are ways to treat it.
How do you Counsel Someone and Help Set Aside the Emotional Aspect and Focus on their Case?
The best thing to do when somebody is emotionally distraught over the case is to try their best to forget about it, and leave it in the attorney’s hands and let the attorney handle the claim. That’s what we’re here for.
We’re here to deal with doctors, the insurance companies, the medical bill providers, with all the little snafus that can happened in a claim, and all the little nuances which can cause somebody a great amount of stress. That’s what we’re here for not only to help you navigate through the system, to help get you as best a recovery as we possibly can for your pain and suffering and to get your bills paid and to get your lost wages and to get money in your pocket, but also to help alleviate as much stress as we possibly can with this difficult situation.
Are There any Things that a Typical Motorcycle Client Should Ask You?
The only thing that you should ask is, “Have you ever handled these kinds of cases before”, “What can I expect to happen”, “How long will my case take, and do you anticipate my seeing doctors and if so, what kind of doctors do you anticipate I’m going to see?” Ultimately, “Will I be able to walk with money in my pocket, and will my medical bills get paid?”
