San Jose Motorcycle Accident Compensation
Once we have identified the underlying cause of the crash and built a strong case against the at-fault driver, we will aggressively pursue just compensation through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
If another driver is at fault for the accident and your injuries, then we will help you pursue compensation for your:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Reduced Earning Capacity
A majority of personal injury and wrongful death claims are settled through an insurance claim. However, that does not mean you should accept the first offer.
Many initial insurance settlement offers are too low. Insurance companies typically want to deny or limit claims whenever they can. This protects their bottom line. But it is in your best interest to fight for what your case is truly worth.
We will warn you if an initial amount is a lowball offer. Then, we can enter into good faith negotiations with the insurer. We will push for you to receive the maximum compensation possible.
If the insurer denies your claim or refuses to settle for a fair amount, then we are prepared to take your claim to court. We are experienced litigators and are not afraid to go up against drivers and their insurers at trial.
