If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, the first order of business is seeking the medical care and attention you need, but beyond that, you may be at a complete loss. Fortunately, there are four basic steps – that apply to motorcycle accidents across the board – to help you protect both your health and your accident claim, and reaching out to an experienced Atlanta motorcycle accident attorney is one of the most important.

One: Follow Your Doctor’s Advice

It’s critical that you carefully follow your medical team’s advice and instructions. Doing so helps to ensure that you will recover to the fullest extent possible, but it also sends a strong message to the insurance company that you take your injuries very seriously and that you expect them to do the same. The insurance company is looking for virtually any reason to discredit or devalue your motorcycle accident claim, and if you fail to follow your doctor’s instructions, it will translate your actions to mean that you are not as seriously injured as you say you are.

From the potential issues involved to how the claim gets handled, truck accidents can be more complicated than car accident cases on a number of levels. For this reason, some personal injury attorneys specialize in truck accident claims so that they can better represent their clients. An experienced truck accident attorney can help you get compensated for your injuries quickly and fairly.

First, it’s important to understand that the other driver has the legal right to dispute your claim, even if you strongly disagree. Second, you should also understand that these defenses are quite common and may not prohibit you from recovering compensation for your injuries.

The Accident Was Not Their Fault

A statute of Lady JusticeIn some instances, when you bring a claim for personal injuries, the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to offer fair and reasonable compensation to settle. When that happens, you and your lawyer might decide to take the case to trial.

At a personal injury trial, credibility is extremely important. A witness who offers favorable testimony on your behalf could have an equally favorable impact on the trial result, translating into additional compensation for you. Some witnesses who testify at trial are lay witnesses, while others may be experts in a particular field.

If you have suffered injuries in an accident that was not your fault, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer representing you at all civil court proceedings, most especially at a jury trial. At Slappey & Sadd, LLC, the members of our Georgia legal team have been litigating personal injury cases and taking them to trial for many years.
