Should I wait to see what the insurance company
offers before contacting a lawyer? You can, but it is not always the safest move. Keep
in mind that the insurance company is not on your side. Insurance companies want to
save money, and motorcycle claims are expensive. Insurance adjustors are trained to find excuses
to reduce your settlement, such as claiming that you contributed to your injuries by not
wearing full gear or that you were partially responsible for the accident. They will always
dispute the severity of your injuries and the necessity of your taking time off work.
You can even the playing field by hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer right away.
