Motorcyclists who are injured in accidents often leave the scene to be rushed to the hospital. These emergency room visits can be very expensive. Motorcyclists are often surprised to learn that they have to pay back their medical providers. Those individuals who successfully sue for their injuries will have to pay for their medical bills with the proceeds of their settlements. Your health insurance company may insist on being reimbursed for medical expenses and some insurers try to avoid paying for medical treatment resulting from accidents altogether. This refusal is based on their contention that riding a motorcycle is a “high-risk activity” for which medical treatment is not covered under their policy.
A lawyer who has experience with motorcycle accidents may drastically reduce the amount you must pay for your medical expenses. This means that there will be more money in your pocket. It is important to work with an attorney from the start. An attorney will be able to negotiate a higher settlement and reduce your medical bills.
