Motorcycle Accident Insurer Statements

Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a Motorcycle Accident you should speak with Motorcycle Accident Attorneys as soon as possible if you suffered injuries that you believe you should be compensated for.  Motorcycle Accidents inherently cause more significant injuries than what are seen in average Motor Vehicle Accidents and because of that insurers often want to settle these with injured parties as soon as they can and before the injured party has had the chance to speak with Motorcycle Accident Attorneys.  The reason is that if the insurer can settle the Motorcycle Accident claim before you have obtained the help of Motorcycle Accident Attorneys they know that they can save their company a great deal of money.

Another thing the insurer may attempt to obtain before you have had the chance to confer with Motorcycle Accident Attorneys is a recorded statement.  In this statement the insurer will ask you about how the accident happened, what injuries you suffered, information about money lost as a result of the accident and any number of other questions.  Before you give a recorded statement to the insurer it is important that you speak with Motorcycle Accident Attorneys and have them present at any statement so that they can help protect your interests.

While most recorded statements are uneventful affairs that does not mean that the representative for the insurer will not try to get you to say something that may hurt your case down the road; for this reason alone it is always advisable to have Motorcycle Accident Attorneys present that can help keep the statement in bounds.

Slip and Fall Depositions

Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall Attorneys can often help you forego the need of filing a lawsuit to recover for your Slip and Fall injury.  However, there is no guarantee that even with Slip and Fall Attorneys working to help you recover for your Slip and Fall that the insurance company will be able to give you what you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys think you are entitled to.  In that case your Slip and Fall Attorneys may advise you that you need to file a lawsuit in order to refresh the negotiations and make the threat of trial real.  If your Slip and Fall leads to the filing of a lawsuit it is probable that before you see any kind of recovery you will need to have a deposition that covers your Slip and Fall.

A deposition is testimony that happens outside of court.  At your Slip and Fall deposition your Slip and Fall Attorneys will be present, as well an attorney for the insurer and the only other party, in most cases, is the court reporter who takes down everything that is said in the deposition.  Generally, a Slip and Fall deposition will cover a few subjects in varying detail; these include your work history, your educational background, your family background, how the injury occurred, why you were on the property, the injuries you sustained and the medical treatment you were required to undergo as a result of your Slip and Fall.  Throughout this process your Slip and Fall Attorneys will be present and will make objections where it is necessary.
