Why Hire an Attorney?

Why Hire An Attorney?

Too many people involved in motorcycle accidents only contact a lawyer when it’s already too late.  Even people who have a clear case for negligence or motorcycle product liability may never speak to a lawyer because they are afraid or worried that hiring a lawyer is not something they can afford. Others are intimidated by the legal process or don’t know how to find the right lawyer who can help them with their case.

The Attorneys at Cycle Law are experts at motorcycle accident cases. Though you have no legal obligation to ever hire your own lawyer for your case, it’s always in your best interest to at least speak to an experienced attorney before you make any decision which impacts your life. Whether you’re worried about costs, don’t know how to proceed, or have any concern at all, you can always contact us so we can answer your questions.

Your Rights In A Motorcycle Accident

A motorcycle accident can occur so suddenly it can be hard to know exactly what happened. Even if you know what happened, you still need the advice of an experienced attorney who is familiar with all the legal implications your case involves. A good lawyer will listen to you, investigate the accident, and provide advice based on the circumstances involved in your case. Each case is different, and you cannot rely on what you hear from friends, family, or the Internet. Only an experienced Cycle Law Attorney can provide you with legal advice about your accident.

Not only that, but some of your rights have a time limit. If you wait to long, your rights may evaporate without you ever realizing what happened. Sometimes you have to act quickly, while other times require more care and deliberation. How do you know when to act and when to wait? Your attorney will tell you.

Not every motorcycle accident results in a lawsuit or a fight with an insurance company. However, unless you are an expert at Cycle Law, you won’t know what your rights are or how to pursue them. It is your lawyer’s job to make sure you know what your rights are and give you advice about how to protect them.

Everyone Else Has A Lawyer

If you are dealing with an insurance company, you can be absolutely certain that the company has lawyers working on its side. Those lawyers aren’t looking out for your rights, they are looking out for the insurance company’s interest. Not only that, but if you are in a multi-vehicle accident and the other people involved have lawyers, you are at an even greater disadvantage.

Your lawyer’s only job is to be your legal advocate and do what is best for you. If you are worried about attorney’s fees, be assured that we will always discuss ant fee agreement in detail beforehand. If you ever meet an attorney that won’t discuss fees, you should contact us immediately. We are always upfront about our fees and will answer any questions you have.

Having Someone On Your Side

Even if you’re hesitant to talk to a lawyer, you owe it to yourself to pick up the phone and call and us today. Everyone else is going to have an attorney working for them, so why shouldn’t you? Your lawyer will be there for you, fighting on your side, and protecting your rights.

Call the Attorneys at Cycle Law today so we can start working for you.

What is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

What Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

It’s common for anyone involved in a motorcycle accident to wonder how much his or her case is worth. Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, all motorcycle accidents tend to involve the same issues. Only after carefully evaluating each of these issues will you be able to know how much your case is worth.

Investigation

You may be tempted to settle a motorcycle accident claim soon after the crash occurs. When the insurance companies are pressuring you to accept a settlement, you should always pause and contact an attorney before you agree to anything. Even if the settlements seems generous, you can’t really know if it is a fair offer until you have conducted a complete investigation. Once the investigation is complete, you then need to evaluate the facts in light of all the legal issues involved.

Medical Expenses

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, recovering from your injuries is your first priority. Even minor injuries can lead to hospital expenses, rehabilitation, or other unexpected costs. For significant injuries, medical costs can skyrocket and last a lifetime. Determining how much your case is worth requires experts who can calculate the total costs of all the expenses caused by your crash.

Lost Wages

Even a minor motorcycle crash can leave you hospitalized, injured, or otherwise unable to get back to work. A more significant crash that leaves you unable to return to your job can cause a significant loss of income. Determining how much income you lose because of your crash often requires a careful evaluation of your wages and the effects of the crash on your long-term income. Factors such as loss of earning capacity, lost profits, and re-training expenses will also impact the lost wages calculation.

Pain And Suffering

A motorcycle crash is not just a medical problem or a potential roadblock to your career, but it is also a very painful experience. The pain and suffering you experience because of the accident must also be measured when determining the value of your case. This pain and suffering can extend into every part of your life and can be very difficult to calculate. However, you are entitled to recover for any pain and suffering you endure, and you need a Cycle Law expert to help you measure these non-economic damages. Contact us today so we can get you the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims

Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims

A motorcycle accident can be terrifying, nerve-racking experience for anyone, even if you are not injured and didn’t damage your vehicle. However, the accident itself is often just the beginning of a very stressful time for anyone involved in an accident. Soon after, you’ll likely face negotiating a claim with an insurance company.

Motorcycle accident insurance claims are often very difficult to deal with, especially if you have never been in an accident before or if you have suffered injuries as a result of the crash. If you haven’t begun the negotiations process or are in the midst of a difficult insurance claim, it’s always a good idea to contact the Cycle Law Attorneys so we can advise you about your options and what you should do next.

Insurance Claim Negotiations

All states require motorcycle drivers to have insurance coverage. Dealing with an insurance company to recover damages after an accident follows a specific procedure, one that many people find intimidating.

Insurance companies make money by charging customers as much as they can for premiums and by paying out as little as possible on claims. Even if it’s your insurance company that is paying on the claim, the claims adjuster may not be willing to offer you as much as you deserve.

That’s where your attorney comes into the equation. Cycle Law Attorneys know how to deal with insurance companies regardless of the nature of the accident or the extent of the damages and injuries involved. Having an attorney on your side can level the playing field between you and the insurance company. If you don’t have an attorney, the claims process can be intimidating and leave you feeling like you’ve been cheated. Your attorney is there to make sure this won’t happen.

Insurance Claim Disputes

Insurance companies approach motorcycle accident insurance claims in largely the same way. Though each accident is unique, claim disputes typically cover the same issues.

 Cost of Injuries: After your crash, the insurance company will attempt to determine the cost of all the medical expenses involved in the accident. This includes emergency services, hospital expenses, rehabilitation fees and medication costs. It’s quite common for an insurance company to estimate these expenses at a much lower cost than their real value, especially when they calculate future medical expenses.

 Cost of Repairs: If your motorcycle is damaged during the accident, the insurance company may similarly underestimate how much it will cost to pay for repairs. The company may also underestimate how much the motorcycle is actually worth, especially when paying for a “totaled” motorcycle.

 Claim Denial: In some cases an insurance company will blame the driver for causing the crash. The company can deny that it has to pay anything because the accident was the driver’s fault.

Any time you are dealing with an insurance company it’s important you have an experienced voice to guide you through the process. Even if everything looks ok to you, your insurance company may be trying to get you to accept a settlement that’s much less than what you deserve. Call the Attorneys at Cycle Law today so we can review your case and negotiate with the insurance company as your representative.
