Identifying the Liable Party
When you have been hurt in an accident, in order to bring a claim for compensation, you need to determine who the liable party is. In NYS, there is something called pure comparative fault that the law follows. That means you can receive compensation for the accident even if you have shared fault.
We determine the liable party by collecting evidence from the scene of your bike accident. We go up against the insurance company to prevent them from pinning any unnecessary blame on you.
Calculating Your Damages
We determine the amount of compensation that your claim is worth based on several things. We look to see what type of financial loss you faced. Sometimes people will be drowning in medical bills after their accident. They will have missed a lot of work, and therefore a lot of paychecks, because of their bike accidents.
We also look to see how your life has negatively changed since your accident. Are you unable to play with your children and family because of pain? Do you have trouble sleeping now? Are you suffering from new mental health problems? All of these are non-economic damages that you are entitled to receive monetary compensation for.
Negotiating with the Insurance Company
The biggest obstacle we will face in the fight to get you full justice is the liable party’s insurance company. They have goals of their own. They want to save themselves money. They are trained to try to reduce the compensation that they give out to injured victims.
We go through negotiations with the insurance company to get them to come to us with a fair settlement offer. The first offer that they give us is likely going to be far less than what you deserve.
We have gone up against some of the toughest insurance companies to win our clients’ settlements for bike accidents that they deserved. We can help you get the justice you need.
