If you or someone you love has been involved in a bike accident, you know the fear, frustration, and stress that it places on your life. Once you’re assured that injuries are not life threatening, then it’s natural to want to put the experience behind you and move on.
Before you settle quickly with your insurance company, however, talk to a good Oregon accident bike lawyer. This is essential if you want to receive a fair settlement.
How a bike accident lawyer can help
No matter the type of accident–bicycle, motorcycle, car, truck, or pedestrian–insurance companies want to pay you as little as they can get away with. They are businesses, so their interest is not in making sure you get paid for time lost at work and for lingering symptoms like unexplained headaches and nagging back pain.
Initial pain medications from your doctor or the emergency room can actually make you think your pain has receded. Days or weeks later, the true pain will often arrive. Now the stakes of your future health become clearer.
