3 Reasons to Hire an Attorney After Being Injured in a Motorcycle Accident, Waterbury, Connecticut

Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident will often devastate your life, and the recovery process can be a drain, both emotionally and financially. If you were hurt in a collision that was not your fault and want to file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable motorist, turn to the Law Office of Thomas L. Brayton III in Waterbury, CT. As a seasoned injury lawyer, he’ll help you gather the evidence needed to prove fault and secure the compensation you deserve. Here, he offers three reasons to work with a legal professional after an accident.

1. The Insurance Adjuster Is Not on Your Side

An insurance adjuster’s objective is in direct opposition to yours. You want to secure as much compensation as possible to cover the full extent of the damages you incurred, whereas the insurance company wants to pay out as little as possible. Having an attorney on your side means you will have a legal advocate during every step of the process and at all times during trial or when a settlement is negotiated.

2. The Legal Proceedings Are Complicated

An attorney will also prevent you from making mistakes that could compromise your claim, like submitting a recorded statement to the insurance company before you have determined the true extent of your injuries.

3. The Damages May Be Higher Than You Think

It may be easy to calculate economic damages like medical bills and lost wages following a motorcycle accident, but what about intangibles like pain and suffering or loss of earning capacity? Your attorney will help you calculate all applicable damages to ensure the insurance adjuster does not bully you into accepting less than you deserve.

If you were in a motorcycle crash with a drunk or distracted driver, the 2017 AV Preeminent Attorney from the Law Office of Thomas L. Brayton III will help you file a claim and seek compensation.
