Bicycle Accident Insurance Investigation
Were you or a loved one injured while riding your bike in New York? Watch this video to learn about the bicycle accident insurance investigation process and how to handle the insurance companies when they call you regarding your injury.
If you are seriously injured in a bicycle accident in New York and the insurance company is calling, have someone take a message. Don’t talk to them. There is nothing you can say to that insurance company that is going to be helpful. Everything they need to know, they can find out a day or two later, after you’ve hired an experienced attorney. The insurance companies are not there to help you. The insurance company’s goal is to make as much money as possible for their shareholders. Every statement you make to them will be analyzed to see how they can get out of paying you. Every form you fill out will also be analyzed to see how they can stop paying you money that otherwise is due to you.
We, in this office, are with our clients when they speak to the insurance companies. When they give statements to the insurance companies, we are on the other end with our clients, guiding them through it and making sure they give the correct statement to the company and they don’t blunder in any way, shape or form. Before any forms are filled out and signed by our clients, we review every single one to make sure they give the correct information the insurance company needs so you will get all your benefits. Don’t do it on your own. It seems simple; you can be very sorry much later.
Some companies also offer you money. They’ll say, “Here’s $500; sign this release.” You don’t know what that means; you don’t know what you’re signing away. You have no idea what they’re doing, and no one gives money away for free. They’re not making you a gift. Hire an experienced attorney. Let that attorney protect you and get you all the money due to you from the insurance carriers.
