A Lawyer That Can Handle The Insurance Company After a Motorcycle Accident
Attorney Jeff Weinstein helps the injured in Henderson County
Dealing with insurance companies after you've been hurt in a motorcycle accident can be very frustrating. All you want is the financial compensation that you are owed for the injuries you suffered. But insurance companies always make the process much more complicated. Attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law knows how to deal with them.
Texas is a modified comparative fault state when deciding personal injury cases. That means that if you are found to be at least 51% responsible for causing the accident, you can't recover any compensation. If you are found to be 50% or less responsible for the crash, then your compensation will be reduced by that amount.
Insurance companies know full well how the system works. That's why they will try to put as much of the blame as possible on you. The more blame they can pin on you, the less they have to pay. And that means they can keep more of their profits.
That's one reason why insurance companies like to think of motorcyclists as dangerous thrill-seekers who drive recklessly on the roads. That helps them to think that the motorcycle accident must have been your fault somehow. It doesn't matter to them that most motorcyclists are very responsible and drive safely.
That's why Jeff focuses on getting the facts. Our legal team can investigate your motorcycle accident to find out what really happened. We gather evidence. Jeff reviews accident reports, medical records and other documentation. We identify witnesses to the accident and interview them ourselves. If needed, Jeff consults accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Strong cases that get results for clients
Jeff has been handling motorcycle accident cases in Henderson County for more than 20 years. He knows how to prove that a driver's negligence was responsible for causing the accident that left you injured. Examples of driver negligence include:
- Driving recklessly
- Tailgating motorcycles
- Refusing to yield
- Driving while distracted
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Falling asleep at the wheel
Another tactic insurance companies like to use to keep their costs low is making a lowball settlement offer. They may contact you soon after the accident with an amount they are willing to pay. Their offer can be tempting. You've got bills that you're not sure how you're going to pay. And the insurance company is offering to send you a check right away.
But their offer probably won't even come close to covering all the damages you have suffered. And once you agree to a settlement, you can't go back to them for more. That's why it is in your best interests to talk to a motorcycle accident attorney before agreeing to any settlement.
Focused on results you deserve
Jeff can determine your total damages. These include all medical expenses for treating your injuries - both now and in the future. You may also be entitled to lost wages if you were left unable to work. And there may be other damages, such as pain and suffering.
When insurance companies see that Jeff has built a strong case and is ready to fight them all the way to court, they usually agree to talk about a settlement. Jeff is dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome in your case. We can handle everything for you.
