Motorcycle Accident Claims
The differences between a motorcycle injury case and an automobile injury case in Oklahoma are really pretty simple. I think the biggest difference is, more often than not, the injuries sustained by the motorcycle driver is more serious, more substantial, and has a higher rating of being permanent. Motorcycle drivers have no protection, they are out there, so the biggest thing is that you need to hire an attorney to help you get the medical attention you need to deal with your severe injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Insurance Investigation
I’ve been asked more than once, “What do I do when the insurance company calls me and asks for a statement?” Well, the first thing you need to know is don’t give them the statement. The second thing you need to do is hire a lawyer and refer the insurance adjuster or the insurance company to your attorney. As soon as you tell the insurance company you have an attorney, they will not ever call you back. You don’t want to run the risk of saying something or giving them a statement that will jeopardize your ability to a full, fair, and equitable settlement. If you think the insurance company is your friend, you’re sadly mistaken. You have to understand; their job is to pay you as little as possible to resolve the claim. I would suggest you hire an experienced injury attorney to handle all your calls and all your correspondence with the insurance company.
Motorcycle Passenger Injury Claims
If you’re in a motorcycle injury wreck, and you were a passenger on the back of the driver of the motorcycle, you have a claim, not only against the car or vehicle that might have helped this accident happen or ran into you, but you also might have a claim against the driver of the motorcycle, if they were driving the motorcycle in a reckless or negligent matter. These are difficult cases. Sometimes the people you’re riding with are close friends or family, and so I would suggest you hire an attorney as soon as you can to be able to help you understand your rights and be able to make the right decision on how to handle the claim against multiple parties.
