After a motorcycle collision, an insurance company may try to persuade an injured motorcyclist into believing that a settlement is fair, when in fact, it is not. Even though this is not always the case after a motorcyclist is injured by another person’s negligence in an accident, the reality, however, is that the party that is attempting to deny payment to a seriously injured person must first prove their case. By hiring experts, reviewing all the facts, and engaging a skilled Arizona injury attorney after a Chandler motorcycle crash, an injured person can prevent the liable party’s insurance company from denying fair compensation.
Another common way insurance companies try to deny compensation to someone who is legally owed payment on a personal injury claim is by not explaining the nuances of uninsured and underinsured motorist laws when it comes to Arizona motorcycle accidents.
Even if the motorcycle on which you were riding may not have any insurance on it for uninsured or underinsured motorists, if any vehicle owned by a family member living in your household has such coverage, it may very well cover your motorcycle collision. Knowing about underinsured motorist coverage is especially important, as so often the liable driver’s insurance company will not cover the full compensation for damages after a serious motorcycle crash.
