If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you likely have a variety of questions about what happens next. You may have one of the insurance companies involved asking you for an interview or a recorded statement. It’s important to understand that you only get one chance to make a recovery after a motorcycle accident. Working with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney will ensure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to and have access to the medical treatment you need.
It’s common for people who have been injured in a motorcycle accident to ask why they even need to work with a lawyer. Sometimes the insurance company may even offer you a settlement or a check. It is very important that you do not sign or accept ANYTHING from the insurance company without having an experienced attorney review your case. By accepting a payment or signing an agreement you are almost certainly eliminating any future claim against the insurance company. It’s critical to ensure that you know how serious your injuries are, and what it will take to treat them completely before you accept anything.
When you work with the Minnesota & Wisconsin Motorcycle Accident & Injury Lawyers at Schroeder & Mandel, there is NEVER an up-front fee, and we provide a free consultation to get your questions answered. We understand that choosing a lawyer to help with your recovery is a big decision, and that’s why we won’t ask you to make a decision immediately. Our main goal in the first free consultation is to have you meet Rick and get comfortable with how he would handle your case. He will also take as much time as you need (several law firms have time limits for their initial consultation) to answer your questions accurately and thoroughly.
The answers to these questions can vary greatly based on the circumstances around your accident, the type of coverage you have and the insurance coverage of the other drivers or motorists involved. The one thing that is consistant across all motorcycle accidents is that Rick will not stop working for you until he has secured the best possible result for you. He is on your side and available to answer your questions throughout the entire injury recovery process.
It is in your benefit to speak to a workers' compensation lawyer as soon as possible. Do not give a statement to the insurance company, do NOT agree to an independant medical examination.
