After a Virginia motorcycle accident we have some important don'ts for you to avoid. Doing any of the following things might end up costing you thousands of dollars. When considering filing for a personal injury lawsuit after a Va. motorcycle accident ensure that you:
- Never sign anything that the insurance company wants you to: Signing insurance documents without first speaking with an attorney is like taking your money and throwing it out the window. After a motorcycle accident the insurance company wants you to accept their offer right away. Why? Because if you sign without speaking with an attorney they know that they will get away with giving you much less than your case is worth. Think about it; does the insurance company want to give you more money than they have to? Of course not.
- Never speak at length about your accident with an insurance adjustor or agent: Even your own agent could use the things you say against you. Perhaps you tell her that the sun was in your eyes or that you "didn't even see the other car coming". These statements seem innocent enough, but the insurance agent is trained to use these facts to put the blame on you and devalue your claim.
- Never discuss your injuries with an insurance adjustor or agent: Don't ever discuss your injuries, medical conditions or medical bills with anyone from the insurance agency. Doing so may give them information that they can use later to devalue your claim.
