What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Following a Collision in San Diego?

Accident On The Street After being involved in a motorcycle accident in San Diego, you were probably told to hire an attorney, especially if you suffered injuries. But why? Why should you hire a lawyer after being involved in a motorcycle accident? What is it that they can do for you that you cannot do for yourself?

Deciding whether to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer following a crash is one mental battle most victims find themselves dealing with. The reason why is because many victims often feel that since they have insurance or the driver who was responsible for the accident is insured, all they have to do is file a claim to recover the money they are entitled to collect. But the truth is, it isn’t that simple. You see, not all drivers are carrying the minimum liability insurance requirements the state of CA requires them to have and not all insurers are going to compensate you with the amount you are eligible to receive. Also, it is extremely important not to talk with the insurance adjuster who will inevitable attempt to record your statement, and potentially use it against you when determining liability and damages.

And that’s where The Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth comes in.

When you hire our firm following an accident, we are able to do a number of things for you which include:

  1. File a claim with the insurance company. While it might seem like an effortless task to complete, what if you are required to spend time in the hospital recovering or have suffered injuries so severe you must spend the next few weeks in rehab and at home? The last thing you are going to want to deal with is the claims process, and some can be quite lengthy. Instead of filling out paperwork, taking phone calls, and gathering proof of your losses should the insurer request this from you, we are able to take care of all this for you.
  2. Negotiate with the insurer that is responsible for compensating you. Let’s say the insurance company wants to pay you $10,000 for your injuries but they were actually estimated to be worth $20,000. Our firm can negotiate with your adjuster so that we can derive at an amount that is fair and that you feel comfortable with accepting. The fact is, insurers generally offer a victim far less than what they should receive so with the right lawyer working by your side, you stand a chance at getting the insurer to come up in their amount so that your property damage and injuries are properly compensated.
  3. Help you file a personal injury lawsuit. Suppose the negotiation process doesn’t work out as planned or your injuries are worth far more than what the insurer is legally obligated to pay you. What then? If you aren’t able to recover the full amount of money you are entitled to, you have the option of filing what is called a personal injury lawsuit. The state of CA gives victims two years from the date of the accident to file suit against the negligent party, which is known as the statute of limitations. This statute of limitations applies only to adults 18 years of age or older. The statute of limitations for minors is different. Also, claims against governmental entities have specific claim filing requirements. It is best to contact an attorney to find out what statutes and claims requirements may apply in your case.
  4. Identify parties who are liable to compensate you. Our firm can help identify any and all liable parties and help you recover the amount of compensation you are entitled to collect from them for the pain and suffering they have caused you.
