Motorcycle Accident Attorney FAQ’s
NO, there will not be any fees or costs If I do not recover from the Insurance Company.
Even though it is nice to have a police report, it is not necessary to have a police report to file a claim against an insurance company.
Yes, you can file a claim even if you did not go to an emergency room. As long as you go to a doctor within a week from the date of the accident.
Yes, even with soft tissue injuries insurance companies are responsible to pay for the injuries.

Yes, take pictures of any and all injuries at the scene of the accident including pictures of the other car and all witnesses.
Yes, the law requires that each party exchange information including their driver’s licenses and insurance information with the other party.
On most cases, the medical provide will sign a lien which guarantees payment to them at the end of the case. So, you do not have to pay anything to them out of pocket.
If you have a coverage called Uninsured Motorist coverage on your policy, your insurance company will come in and act as the other side had insurance.
Can the insurance company raise my rate for using Uninsured motorist or medical payment on a case where I was not at fault?
Under Insurance Code Section 491, the rate of an insurance can not be raised on an accident which you were not at fault.
What if the other side has a small policy of $ 15,000 and I have a Uninsured motorist coverage of $ 100,000? Can I recover from my insurance company
The answer is yes. If your injuries are valued more than the insurance coverage of the other side and you have a higher policy, then your insurance company will cover the difference.. It is called Underinsured motorist claim (UIM). It is part of Uninsured motorist (UM) claim and you do not pay more for additional coverage. In your example you will have another $ 85,000 you can collect form UM/UIM coverage.
Our office will assist in putting the case on a lien basis and asking the hospital to wait until end of the case for payment.
Yes, the other side is always responsible to pay for your loss of income within the limits of their policy.
Yes, uninsured motorist must cover any loss of earnings that you incur as a result of an accident in which you were not at fault.
Yes, the insurance company will evaluate the case based on the firm they are dealing with. If your attorney has never filed a lawsuit on any cases, then your offer will be much smaller. With over 28 years experience in the area, we will provide you with the highest possible value for your case. We have had hundreds of trial and thousands of arbitration in the past 28 years.
Mostly the difference is extent of injuries. However, there are issues that are specifically raised in a motorcycle accident. If you are an attorney who does not know how to handle these issues, then you will not be able to recover properly from the other party for example, splitting lanes in the freeway.
Is there life time medical that we can get from insurance company on Motorcycle or car accident cases?
Unlike Worker’s compensation cases, you cannot have an open medical on car or Motorcycle accident care. However, if there is medical probable care for future, you can include those future charges in your demand from insurance companies.
