How Do I Deal With the Insurance Company After a Motorcycle Crash?
From the moment you enlist our help with your case, we will take over all communication with the insurance company. The at-fault driver’s insurance company is not on your side. Any insurance adjuster you speak to might try to use anything you say to devalue your claim. For this reason, we manage all communication with the insurer.
This protects your right to compensation and also streamlines the insurance claims process for you. You can focus on getting better while we focus on handling your claim.
How Can I Prove My Case?
Our team thoroughly investigates every motorcycle accident case we handle. We will get to the bottom of who caused your crash and what happened. We will identify, collect, and analyze all available evidence and build a strong case to show the at-fault driver acted negligently. With this evidence, we try to hold them liable and collect compensation on your behalf.
As a part of our investigation, we will survey the accident scene. We can call in accident reconstruction specialists and even enlist the help of medical experts to help us understand your ongoing and future care needs. We can also conduct additional interviews with witnesses, talk to local businesses and try to obtain video of the crash, and take other actions to prove your case against the at-fault driver.
What Is My Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth?
One of the most important parts of the claims process is collecting documentation to prove the full value of your accident-related expenses and losses. The evidence we obtain could include:
- Your medical bills;
- Estimates for your motorcycle repairs;
- Receipts for any out-of-pocket costs;
- Other documentation of expenses and losses;
- Your medical records showing the extent of your injuries; and
- Proof of your pain and suffering.
After we complete this step of the process, we can estimate the value of your case and explain what a fair settlement value might look like. We often see clients who tried to calculate this value on their own vastly underestimate the compensation they deserve.
How Do I Get a Fair Settlement for My Damages?
Our team has the training and experience necessary to negotiate with any insurance company or legal team and aggressively pursue a fair payout. We will file your claim and demand compensation based on the fair settlement value we uncovered during our investigation.
What If the At-Fault Party Will Not Settle?
If the insurance company denies your claim or refuses a fair settlement agreement, we will not hesitate to litigate your case. We can file a personal injury lawsuit in an Ohio civil court.
In some cases, this is enough to prompt a higher settlement offer. However, we will prepare your case for court from the beginning, just in case. We will be ready to present a strong case to the judge and argue for a verdict that covers all your accident-related losses and expenses.
