Conyers Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorbike Accident on the road with a car

Each year, almost 50,000 people get injured in motorcycle accidents. These accidents can happen anywhere, even in Rockdale County. If you are the victim of a bike wreck, Conyers motorcycle accident attorney Charles Scholle is here to help.

Motorbike accidents are so dangerous because the rider has very little protection if they meet the pavement. Hopefully, the biker is wearing proper gear, such as a helmet, riding pants, and riding jacket, and boots. This apparel can lessen the risk of severe injuries in a motorcycle accident, but there is always a risk.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, time is of the essence. You need to file a police report, seek medical care, and consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. At Scholle Law, we can help you figure out your next steps after a wreck. This may include negotiating with the other driver’s insurance company – or taking the case to court.

Do not make the mistake of speaking to your insurance provider before you speak to an attorney. The insurance agent will do all they can to avoid acknowledging the legitimacy of your claim, including recording your conversation and twisting your words to make it seem like you were the one at fault.

Our lawyers know how to handle the insurance company. For over 25 years, the team at Scholle Law has helped our clients recover millions in compensation after a wreck.

Is Your Motorcycle Insurance Enough?

Many people believe that they have a full coverage policy, only to find that they only had minimal coverage when they are attempting to make a claim. By definition, a full coverage policy only needs to have some form of coverage in each category, but does not specify how much coverage is in each category. 

This means you could have almost no coverage in medical, but be fully covered in liability. When you purchase insurance, it is extremely important to figure out exactly what your insurance policy actually covers. This way, if you ever do find yourself in a position where you need to file a claim, you know what damages you can be compensated for, and there are no unpleasant surprises.

Speaking with the insurance company after a wreck

When you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you have to report the incident to your insurance provider. When you do so, be very careful with what you say. The only information they need includes your identifying and contact information, the other driver’s insurance information, where and when the collision happened, and if you have taken your bike to get repaired yet. Anything else you tell them will be used against you to minimize or deny your claim.

As such, it is wise to consult with an experienced attorney before talking to your insurance company, and especially before talking to the insurance company representing the other person involved in the accident. Answering questions for the other individual’s insurance company without knowledge of what to say could put you at a disadvantage later if you are trying to recover financial compensation.

Generally, insurance companies are just looking out for their own economic well-being. They want to pay you as little as possible in order to protect their bottom line. Having an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in your corner can even the fight for your rightful compensation.
