Snellville, Georgia Motorcycle Accident
Each year almost 2,000 motorcyclists die in motorcycle accidents, and another 50,000 sustain injuries. These accidents can happen anywhere, even in Snellville, Georgia. Motorcycle accidents normally occur because another driver has been negligent, and unfortunately, these accidents frequently result in death or serious personal injury. The more fragile design of a motorcycle when compared to a car means that motorcycle riders face particular dangers and difficulties on the road. If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, Snellville motorcycle accident attorney Charles Scholle is here to help.
Liability for motorcycle accidents is usually determined by using the rule that the less careful, or negligent, person involved in the accident is the one who must pay for the damages suffered by the other, more cautious person in the accident. To determine liability with clarity, the attorney you hire will look at the accident report to figure out exactly what happened. In cases where the details of the accident are unclear, he may even hire an accident reconstructionist to clarify any doubts.
Before an accident even happens, there are steps you can take to make sure you are protected. Most importantly, make sure that you have motorcycle insurance coverage, and make sure you fully comprehend what that coverage entails. Many people believe that they have a full coverage policy only to find that they did not have full 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. When you are involved in an accident, you have to interact with your insurance company again. You should talk with them about the accident and tell them whether you sustained any injuries, especially if they are severe injuries like traumatic brain injury, so that they can be prepared. However, 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.
