If you’re been injured in a motorcycle accident I bet there is a lot going through your mind; is this going to affect my motorcycle insurance even if I wasn’t at fault? Does the guy that hit me even have insurance? Who is going to cover my medical bills and fix my bike until I get some money from my insurance company? The good news is that we have set up a 24 hour live chat service on our home page www.russbrown.com to help motorcycle accident victims get answers to questions about their accident.
The chat service is 100% free and you don’t have to give any personal information to ask your question, all is required is a first name, and a question relating to a motorcycle injury or accident… Keep in mind that this free service shouldn’t be considered the same as a consultation with a motorcycle accident lawyer, but rather quick information about the law, and your rights as they pertain to a motorcycle injury or accident.
If you are not sure if you actually even need a motorcycle accident lawyer, then you should keep in mind that even if you do not feel injured now, because of the shock of the accident and adrenaline release by your body during the accident you could have suffered whiplash or other injuries that may not show up for hours or days. The best thing for your health and safety is to go to the emergency room and have a check up. Make sure you relate to the doctor the details of your accident so he or she can give you a thorough examination. After your examination you should at least have a consultation over the phone with a motorcycle accident lawyer to find out if you should have an attorney represent your insurance claim.
However, if the injury is moderate to severe then an attorney is usually necessary because the average person doesn’t know how to properly evaluate their claim and needs help to achieve the best result. On the other hand the insurance company knows everything. A motorcycle accident attorney can level the playing field.
Things to keep in mind if you are ever in an accident are:
- Remain calm. Take deep breaths.
- Get the facts: Time, date, location of accident, names and driver’s license of others involved, witnesses, etc….
- Be careful what you say. Make statements to law officials only at the scene.
- Do not speak to the representative of the other person’s insurance company if you intend to retain a lawyer.
