Orange County Motorcycle Accident FAQ
Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be a confusing situation, especially if you’ve never been in a collision before. If you were hurt or sustained property damage, you’ll likely want to file a claim against the liable party to collect compensation. But where should you begin, and what do you need to do to ensure success?
Our team at Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP wants to help you find success in this venture. Below, we’ve compiled the answers to some common questions to help clear things up.
Should I Talk to the Insurance Company?
You may think it’s required for you to get in touch with the insurance company immediately after your accident. However, speaking to insurers on your own could lead to you making yourself liable for the crash by accidentally saying the wrong thing. Instead, have your Orange County motorcycle accident attorney get in touch with the insurer on your behalf.
What Pieces of Evidence Will My Attorney Need?
To build a viable claim, your attorney will need to prove your blamelessness and the negligence of the other motorist. To do this, your lawyer may request your medical documents, motorcycle helmet, any photographs taken at the scene of the crash, and contact information for any witnesses who were present.
Which Benefits Am I Eligible to Recover?
Many Orange County motorcycle crash victims are eager to find out what their claim is worth. This will depend on the extent of your injuries and damages. Typically, though, you can recover economic damages like medical costs and property damage, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, and mental anguish.
What Happens if My Claim Is Denied?
Unfortunately, it isn’t uncommon for insurers to deny compensation to victims, even when they deserve it. In the event that your claim is denied, your attorney can file an appeal on your behalf. Should it be deemed necessary, we may also take the insurance company to court to fight for fair compensation.
