Do not make the mistake of thinking an insurance company will make it easy to achieve a fair financial recovery for your motorcycle accident damages. Unfortunately, insurance providers are adept at convincing clients to settle for far less than they deserve. Clients often need to hire attorneys before insurance companies will take them seriously. Before you accept a lowball settlement offer, contact a lawyer for a discussion about your options. A personal injury attorney could be your solution for optimal results.
Some motorcycle accidents are single-vehicle wrecks while others involve two or more vehicles. A single-vehicle accident could still make you eligible for compensation if someone else contributed to the crash. If, for example, you hit a pothole the city neglected to repair and crashed, the city could owe you compensation. In a multi-vehicle crash, the other driver involved may be liable for your damages for negligent or reckless behaviors.
Most motorcycle accidents in Glendale stem from driver errors. According to Arizona’s tort-based insurance law, an at-fault driver will be liable for damages after an accident. You or your lawyer must file an insurance claim seeking compensation with the company of the at-fault driver. If you need assistance determining fault and identifying the defendant for your motorcycle accident claim, contact an attorney.
To have grounds for a motorcycle injury claim, you must have proof that one or more parties negligently caused the wreck. Negligence is the focal point of most personal injury claims. Negligence is someone’s failure to adhere to the standards of care, leading to a breach of duty and a related motorcycle crash. You will need enough evidence to prove the defendant’s fault as more likely to be true than untrue. A lawyer from David Shapiro Law, PLLC can help you with this burden of proof.
If your lawyer succeeds in bringing and proving a case in Arizona, you could win enough financial compensation to pay your debts and move forward after a motorcycle accident.
