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 bike accident lawyer. This is essential if you want to receive a fair settlement.
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. Their main motive is spending as little as possible on your case. At Peterson Law Offices, we will fight to see that you are properly diagnosed and that any settlement will cover all of your costs.
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.
Don't turn a bike accident into a negative turning point in your life. Make sure you get an advocate quickly with Peterson Law Offices. We've helped thousands of Oregon residents regain their health and their lives. You must act quickly after an accident, however, as time is of the essence in gathering information.
