Uninsured Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys are very important when you have been involved in an accident with a driver that is without insurance.  In instances like that Motorcycle Accident Attorneys may be your best chance at a recovery for your pain, suffering and medical expenses.

An unfortunate fact about motor vehicle accidents and Motorcycle Accidents included is that while the law requires drivers to have insurance before they drive, this is not always the case.  This can be extremely problematic in Motorcycle Accidents, where even a relatively small accident can lead to traumatic injuries that require a great deal of medical care and create large medical bills.  Luckily, the law also requires that your auto insurer include Uninsured Motorist coverage in any policy of insurance that you purchase from them.  The trick is being able to collect on this policy and that is why the help of Motorcycle Accident Attorneys is important when you have been involved in a Motorcycle Accident with an uninsured motorist.

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys will be able to notify your insurer of the accident and provide them with the information the insurance company will require to evaluate your claim.  Additionally, Motorcycle Accident Attorneys will be able to negotiate the best possible settlement with your insurance company and if you have any medical liens or subrogation claims your Motorcycle Accident Attorneys will be able to try and negotiate those down and secure payment, so that you can try to avoid paying out of pocket.  Finally, if the insurance company refuses to pay, your Motorcycle Accident Attorneys will be able to file suit and ask for additional damages due to the insurance company’s Vexatious Refusal to Pay for your Motorcycle Accident.

Slip and Fall Pressure Points

Slip and Fall

When you have been involved in a Slip and Fall accident the business’ insurer will most likely contact you as soon as possible to try to force a settlement early that will cause you to forefeit much of the value of your Slip and Fall case.  With Slip and Fall Attorneys you will be able to make sure this does not happen but that does not mean that the insurance company will not fight your Slip and Fall Attorneys to limit the amount the insurance company is on the hook for.

In the negotiation between your Slip and Fall Attorneys and the insurance company the first place that the insurance company will try to exert pressure is how the accident happened.  Without fail, the insurance company will try to get you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys to believe that the cause of the accident was not the business’ fault or that you helped cause the accident.  It is important that you have Slip and Fall Attorneys working for you at this point because the insurer, with its experience, can be convincing or try to use strong arm tactics to make you discount the value of your case.

The second area that the insurer will try to pressure you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys on is the extent of your injuries.  They will try to claim that the Slip and Fall could not cause the injuries you suffered or that while you may have been hurt, you were not hurt as much as you claim.  Again it is important to have the support of Slip and Fall Attorneys who will be able to cut through these arguments in an effort to get you the best result possible.

If you have been injured in a Slip and Fall and would like to speak with Slip and Fall Attorneys contact The Elster Firm for a free consultation.
