Generally speaking, a good settlement is one that covers all of your past, present, and future expenses related to the crash.
Many insurance companies are well aware of the financial straits that motorcycle accident victims can face after crashes. Insurers try to exploit this situation by offering victims quick lump sum settlements to resolve their claims and limit the insurer’s liability.
While these offers may seem adequate at first, most initial offers are not close to what the victim should receive. Accident victims often make the mistake of accepting an early settlement offer, only to discover that it won’t cover all of their costs, leaving them with no legal recourse to secure more compensation.
An attorney can negotiate a settlement on your behalf and prevent you from being taken advantage of by an insurance company.
