Why Your Motorcycle Accident Needs a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Crazy fact – if you are injured in a motorcycle accident in Chicago you are 6 times more likely to need an orthopedic consultation than any other driver of any other vehicle in the city or state! It is also very likely that your injuries will be more complex than is commonly seen in other car accident injuries.
Injuries that cannot be seen with the naked eye can wreak havoc in your later years. An orthopedic consultation is much more expensive than a non-specialist consultation and the goal of insurance is mostly to save their company money – not to treat you in the best way.
Hidden trauma needs to be diagnosed and treated
Unfortunately, most of these injuries go unnoticed because of our body’s ability to handle long-term trauma. So when admitting these injuries, insurance companies fight over whether it must have happened in the accident vs. after the accident was determined.
Getting a proper medical evaluation immediately after the accident or as soon as possible is really important to check for these hidden injuries. This is the first thing we do to help our motorcycle accident clients if it hasn’t already been done.
Our attorneys in Chicago will fight tirelessly with your insurance to get you the right specialist or expert to consult on your injuries so that you get the best possible care and chance of recovery.
We talk to hospitals and doctors to lower your bills
Part of the services our Chicago law firm offers to our clients is that we fight tirelessly to lower your hospital bills as well as your doctor bills. Most injury motorcyclists receive exorbitant medical bills that either go over the edge of your insurance or you have to pay a lot of out-of-pocket expenses. Our team of negotiators will work to lower your bills so that you retain the higher settlement that you have been granted. We want you back on the road and on your bike as soon as possible.
Biker prejudice is real
We know for a fact that many people have negative preconceived notions about bicycles. People make decisions first and ask questions later. This bias follows us into the hospital when talking to doctors, when working with the insurance company, when getting the details of the police report so you can be prepared if your case goes to court. We know how to deal with that bias and make sure it doesn’t hurt your case. We will fight for you and your rights.
