Should I Accept the First Motorcycle Injury Settlement Offer from the Insurance Company or Consult a Lawyer First?

Getting the Settlement You Deserve for Your NYC Motorcycle Accident Claim

Not everyone is aware of it, but an insurance company’s first settlement claim is often much lower than they are actually willing to pay. It may seem easier to just take what they offer for your NY motorcycle accident claim, but it can result in less than you need, especially regarding future pain, suffering, and expenses related to the accident.

If you are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in New York City, Queens, Brooklyn, or the Bronx, having the right legal defense is crucial for getting a settlement amount that is truly fair. Call Proner & Proner in NYC today or contact us online for a free consultation on how much your New York motorcycle accident case is really worth.

NY Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accident Injury Cases

Although you won’t have forever, there is still a reasonable amount of time to file a motorcycle accident injury claim in NY. In New York state, an individual has three years from the accident date to file, which means you don’t have to rush too much when preparing a case and getting legal advice. As long as you hire the right lawyers, such as those at Proner & Proner in NYC, three years should be more than enough time to file.

NYC Insurance Companies Are Not Your Friends

With the above in mind, you should not feel pressured to accept the first offer you get from the insurance company unless you truly believe it is more than enough and don’t want to go through the added effort. It is important to note, however, that many motorcycle accident victims can get a far greater amount with legal and professional support than they could get on their own… and for obvious reasons. Insurance companies are not your friends. They don’t want to pay you a dime, let alone thousands of dollars to cover your injuries and time out of work after a New York City motorcycle accident. They have very skilled lawyers of their own and will gather opposing evidence and attempt to find any loophole they can to get out of compensating you.

Securing New York Attorney Representation as the First Step for Your NY Motorcycle Accident Claim

With the complicated process of gathering evidence and having a legal battle with insurance companies, many NYC motorcycle accident victims don’t find it very appealing to fight for more money. This can make taking whatever the insurance company offers you at first very appealing. Do not let the complexity of the negotiation and legal process deter you, and do not let the aggressive insurance companies pressure you. The experienced attorneys at Proner & Proner in New York City are just as aggressive for our clients, and we have the knowledge and ability necessary to handle the overwhelming complexity of these types of cases. We can get you the compensation you deserve for your motorcycle accident injuries, and we can make insurance companies dish out the fair amount they desperately try to reduce.
