How Can a Lawyer Help You?
Seeking financial compensation for your injuries and damages after a bicycle accident will include filing a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance process, however, is not set up to work in your favor. An insurance carrier will do as much as possible to get you to settle for less. Hiring a lawyer can help you combat bad faith tactics from an insurance provider and improve the odds of securing fair compensation for your losses. Your attorney will make sure you do not accept a lowball settlement offer during your bike accident claim.
