After someone pulls out in front of you in downtown Fort Worth or unexpectedly crosses the center line on I-20, it’s easy to panic and accept the first offer of financial relief that comes your way. Motorcyclists are often severely injured, disabled, disfigured, or unable to work in crashes with other vehicles—even when the rider wears a helmet and obeys traffic laws. Because of the severity of these crashes and the long-term nature of so many severe injuries, victims are often able to recover damages for their future medical care and ongoing treatment. Unfortunately, many injured riders instead accept fair less than what their cases are worth in order to make the claims process move more quickly and start taking care of mounting debt related to the crash.
Are You Thinking About Your Short-Term Recovery and Your Future Needs?
No matter how much you feel the financial pressure of your crash, think twice about accepting any offer that won’t cover your needs in the coming months, years, and decades that you and your family must spend living with your injuries. While covering your initial bills can help, crash victims shouldn’t have to wonder what happens if they need additional surgeries later, develop an infection or complication, or require long-term medication.
