It is worth hiring a Detroit bicycle accident lawyer because these are complicated and complex cases. Bicyclists’ injuries are frequently very serious and insurance defense lawyers and adjusters frequently try to shift blame to the bike rider and away from the at-fault motorist whose negligence caused the crash.
An experienced bicycle crash attorney will have the skill, specialized training and proven results to fight for you and to protect you when the insurance company does not want to pay you the compensation and benefits you are legally entitled to.
In fact, the insurance industry’s own data shows that experienced bike accident lawyers with a track record of recovering record-breaking settlements and trial verdicts for their clients can often settle injury cases faster and for significantly more money.
Here are more reasons why it is worth hiring a Detroit bicycle accident lawyer:
- You will receive help recovering No-Fault benefits to pay for your medical bills and lost wages.
- You will get accurate and reliable information about the No-Fault benefits that are available (such medical mileage reimbursement and attendant care), which protects you when a claims adjuster fails to advise you of all the benefits you are legally entitled to.
- You will receive help recovering pain and suffering compensation and possibly “excess” No-Fault benefits to cover your accident-related medical bills and lost wages.
- You will be protected from auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick victims who are already under financial pressure into “settling” their injury claims for much less than they are worth and forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.
