Hiring can a New Orleans motorcycle accident lawyer after a motorcycle accident is important

Posted by Megan Kiefer | Feb 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

Being injured in a motorcycle accident or a Vespa accident can be traumatizing.  Because driving a motorcycle or Vespa leaves you exposed with less protection if you are involved in an accident, there is a possibility that if you are involved in a New Orleans motorcycle accident or a vespa accident that your damages can be more serious. If you have been involved in a New Orleans motorcycle accident or a Vespa accident, it is important to contact the police and seek medical attention and to take immediate action to protect your health and your family well being.   Hiring a New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney early on in your case can help to secure valuable evidence soon after the accident.

How can a New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney help me early on in my case?

Hiring a New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney early on rather than attempting to negotiate with an insurance company directly can severely effect your recovery.  Insurance companies will attempt to take recorded statements of you so that they can use them later to attack your credibility.  Additionally, insurance companies have a team of adjusters whose number one job it is to settle you case early - before you know the full extent of your injuries, and for the lowest amount possible. Because we have decades of experience handling motorcycle accidents, we will be able to evaluate your injuries and any settlement offers and can help to negotiate on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve for the injuries caused by the motorcycle accident.

Further, by hiring a New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney soon after the accident, the lawyer will be able to open an investigation immediately and help to secure valuable information that could disappear if you wait too long. For example, the other vehicle may contain devices that monitor the speed and travel of the other driver; you may have one on your motorcycle, there could be video of the accident on the dash cam of the 1other vehicle, or the accident may be captured on a crime camera or other surveillance camera.  Additionally, it is important to contact witnesses immediately - because this is exactly what the insurance company is doing.  An experienced New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney can also set up an inspection of your motorcycle, the accident scene, and the other vehicle and hire an accident reconstructionist to rebuild the accident. Waiting to hire a New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney may jeopardize the ability to get this evidence.

Who Can I make a claim against following a New Orleans motorcycle accident ?

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to make a claim with any one of the other vehicles involved in the accident. If you have uninsured motorist insurance, you may be able to make a claim with your own insurance company as well.
