When you’re hurt in a motorcycle accident, you may not be worried at first about the costs of your accident. You know you have an insurance policy that covers the costs of your accident, or at least that your insurance company should cover it.
But you might find yourself struggling to get answers when dealing with insurers after a motorcycle wreck. Rather than dealing with them alone, reach out for a motorcycle accident lawyer in NYC, who can help you deal with the insurers when you’re struggling to get compensated.
Insurance Companies Aren’t On Your Side
Many NYC motorcyclists have all the insurance they’re required to carry, and they expect that insurance to cover the costs of their suffering when they’re hurt in an accident. Unfortunately, the insurance company may not be on your side, and getting compensated fairly may feel impossible.
That’s because insurance companies are for-profit companies. They’re not interested in helping you recover from the injuries you suffered—they’re more interested in protecting their bottom line.
Because of this, you may find yourself dealing with an insultingly-low settlement offer. This initial offer may not even cover the total costs of repairing your motorcycle, let alone the costs of your brain injuries, broken bones, lost wages, and other financial costs of a motorcycle accident.
Motorcyclists May Struggle for Compensation
Getting compensated through an insurance company is especially difficult for motorcycle accident victims. Motorcycle accidents can be very expensive, which leads to many motorcyclists struggling to get fair compensation from the insurance company.
For example, a car accident victim may have suffered serious damage to their car, but their car protects them from the road. In contrast, a motorcycle has no airbags or any other safety features required for modern cars. Because of that, you may have suffered serious pain and severe injuries, which in turn could be causing medical bills to pile up.
Insurance companies don’t want to pay these high costs, even if you’ve been paying into your insurance policy for years. They may even act in bad faith, meaning they may breach the agreement you made when you bought your policy.
If you suspect your insurance company isn’t doing the right thing, you may need to call a lawyer. Your lawyer can help you determine when they’re acting in bad faith and what you can do about it.
