Q: While I was riding my motorcycle, I was hit by a car that ran a red light. I was almost able to avoid the accident, and I wasn’t hurt as badly as I might have been, but I’m worried that because I wasn’t wearing a helmet my insurance company might not pay my claim. Will that make a difference?
A: In the state of Colorado, motorcycle riders over the age of 18 are not required to wear a helmet. Finding a lawyer that understands and has experience dealing with motorcycle accidents and injuries is beneficial when dealing with insurance companies. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another driver and have questions concerning insurance disputes, contact a professional Colorado motorcycle injury attorney today.
Q: I was in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago, which resulted in a stay in the hospital for some broken bones, a concussion, and some internal injuries. My insurance company has told me how much they will pay, and it won’t even come close to covering my medical bills. What can I do?
A: An insurance company is acting in bad faith when it does not cover their responsibilities as previously determined in the insurance policy. Denying claims unreasonably, delaying payments, failing to investigate claims in a timely manner, or manipulating the facts of a claim can be considered as acting in bad faith. If you believe your insurance company is acting in bad faith, contact a dedicated Denver motorcycle insurance lawyer to resolve your insurance dispute and get you the compensation you need to fully recover.
Q: I need an attorney after a motorcycle accident, and I’m not sure how to go about picking one. There are a million lawyer ads on tv, in the phone book, and the internet. How do I know who’s right for me?
A: First, make sure you choose an attorney that is specialized in your specific type of accident or injury. Then check with your Colorado State Bar to see if the attorney has any complaints that have been registered against him or her. And before choosing an attorney, compare the fees and expenses ahead of time to avoid any misunderstandings. Choosing the right attorney can take some of the stress off of you and your family members. An experienced Colorado motorcycle accident attorney can help you sort through the confusion, take any legal action that is required and get the compensation you rightly deserve.
