Why You Should Never Accept a Motorcycle Accident Payout Without Consulting an Attorney

Motorcycle Accident Utah

Many people in Utah – including motorcyclists – want to trust others. That’s why it is so common for victims in motorcycle accidents to accept settlements when insurance companies offer them. But the truth is, most would be better off not trusting insurance companies. 

Insurance companies are in business to make money. They do that by paying out as little as they possibly can. Most often, the settlement they offer you will be a lowball offer. They hope you will accept without realizing that you could have gotten more. 

Our Utah motorcycle accident law firm knows better than most how deceptive insurance companies can be. We have helped many clients in situations similar to yours. We can assure you that having a motorcycle accident attorney talk to the insurance company is likely to get you a better settlement. And if the insurance company won’t play ball, we may be able to pursue a personal injury case that will ensure you get the money you deserve. 

Insurance Settlements – Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Attorney

1. Insurance companies are not going to give you the best offer automatically.

The problem with insurance companies – even when their employees treat you well – is that their interests are different than yours. They need to save as much money as they can on claims so their company is more profitable. You need to get as much money in your settlement as possible to help you recover from your injuries and move on with your life. 

2. Arguing cases is what we do.

Our personal injury team are professionals that know how to negotiate with insurance companies, nationwide and in Utah. We collect all the facts and explain them to the insurer – facts that prove that you deserve a big settlement. They may try to argue against our position, but we will put forward the strongest argument we can on your behalf. We stand up to the big insurance companies so you don’t have to.

3. We give you more options than just accepting a bad settlement. 

A motorcycle accident can leave you in serious pain and financial distress. The last thing you may feel like doing is arguing with an insurance company – which can make accepting whatever they offer seem like the easiest thing to do. 

However, if you have a knowledgeable Utah motorcycle accident lawyer on your side, you have more options. You don’t have to accept a settlement you aren’t happy with. We can push back to get you a better offer. 

4. We can tell you if it’s worthwhile to file a lawsuit. 

Sometimes, the settlement they try to offer you is not good enough. We look at the circumstances of your case and tell you if we think you can pursue a lawsuit and win. If we think you can, we will fight on your behalf and be with you every step of the way – and we charge no fee unless we win!
