Tips to maximize your motorcycle accident insurance compensation

Victims of motorcycle accidents typically suffer serious personal injury and massive property damage. Receiving the maximum amount of compensation possible replaces out-of-pocket expenses and enables victims to pay for much-needed medical care. However, insurance companies want to make money and do not like to let it slip out of their fingers.

Making a successful insurance claim is like gambling in some ways. Your words, your actions and even your conversational tone could betray you and reveal a hidden weakness. Since you are injured, you may be in pain or taking medication, which can also make you vulnerable. To help you cope in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident while also dealing with your insurance company, we offer the following tips.

  • Avoid signing a waiver or a release of any kind without legal guidance.
  • Document the accident if possible and keep the information safe.
  • Avoid making a written or recorded statement unless you are confident that you understand your policy coverage.
  • Keep all of the medical records associated with your motorcycle accident injuries.
  • Avoid accepting a settlement offer from your insurance provider without a legal opinion.
  • Take detailed notes during each of your communications with insurance company personnel.
  • Avoid making any statement that might sound like an admission of fault.
  • Seek a legal opinion about filing an injury claim if your motorcycle accident was caused by negligence.

All of the above tips can aid in getting you the compensation you need. It is also wise to learn as much as possible about personal injury law in Georgia. Check our law firm's website for helpful resources and information.
