Motorcycle Accident lawyers
Some of the most devastating types of accidents that a person can be involved in is a motorcycle or scooter accident. Although motorcycles and scooters have the same right to the road as car and truck drivers, they are far less protected in the event of an accident. Even when wearing a helmet, a motorcycle or scooter rider can be critically and even fatally injured if they are involved in a crash. If you or a loved one have been hurt in a motorcycle or scooter accident, the most important thing you can do is get immediate medical help. Next, it’s time to call an attorney.
Calculating Your Damages
The costs of a motorcycle or scooter accident can be high, especially if severe injury occurred. Surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, and medications can be hundreds of thousands of dollars and in some cases, even more. Add in lost wages from being out of work, and families can easily go into a financial crisis. At the Felicetti Law Firm, P.C., our motorcycle accident attorneys are dedicated to helping crash victims and their loved ones recover the full and fair compensation they deserve. If someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to your accident, we will do everything possible to hold them legally responsible for their actions.
Working With Insurance Companies
Many people who are involved in a scooter or motorcycle accident assume that their insurance or the other party’s insurance will cover the accident in full. However, this is often not the case. Insurance companies tend to lowball victims, offering them a settlement that is far less than the full cost of the accident in hopes that the victim will settle quickly and the matter can be resolved. You should never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an attorney. It may be in your best interest to decline the offer, or to submit a counteroffer after your total damages have been accurately estimated. In some cases, it may be better to decline an insurance settlement altogether and pursue litigation.
