Do You Need a Houston Motorcycle Lawyer after an Accident?

Motorcycle accidents injure thousands of people each year, and statistics indicate that you are much more likely to be severely injured in a motorcycle crash than a crash involving another type of vehicle. In many cases, victims are entitled to compensation for their losses, but issues like greedy insurance companies and bias against bikers make it hard for them to recover. For this reason, it’s highly advisable for motorcycle accident victims to retain an attorney to represent them.

Bias against Bikers?

When you say “motorcyclist,” many people immediately think about a risk-taking young male who likely had something to do with any accident in which he or she was involved. This stereotype, which has been reinforced through decades of portrayals in movies and television, often means that bikers are not treated fairly by insurance companies and courts. Fortunately, an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can ensure that you obtain any compensation to which you are entitled.

Insurance Companies Do Not Want to Pay Up

If there is one thing you should be clear about after an accident caused by someone else, it’s that insurance companies are in the business of saving money whenever they can. That means that they will gladly deny your claim if they can find any way to do so. If they can’t deny it, they will do everything they can to minimize your settlement. 

Some of the tactics that insurance companies may use to try and settle your case for less than it is worth include:

  • Misrepresenting your rights

  • Starting with a unreasonably low initial offer

  • Telling you that you are not entitled to damages for pain and suffering

  • Pressuring you to provide a recorded statement about your accident

  • Making unreasonably broad medical record requests

Fortunately, a Houston motorcycle accident lawyer familiar with handling insurance companies can protect your rights.

What Your Attorney Can Do for You

You may be wondering what specifically an attorney can do to help you get the compensation you deserve. Some of the specific tasks that a lawyer can do on your behalf include:

  • Determining against whom you may be able to file a claim

  • Filing your claim paperwork along with a demand letter setting out your losses

  • Working with medical and financial experts in order to develop evidence supporting your damages

  • Attempting to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company

  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf
