      Question:

      What are some common mistakes to avoid after a bicycle accident claim?

      Answer:

      There are many common mistakes people make without the guidance of an experienced bicycle accident attorney. One of them is providing a recorded statement to the insurance company without an attorney’s guidance. This can have a disastrous effect on the value of your claim.

      You can expect the insurance adjuster to ask you the same questions in many different ways during this recorded phone call. What you need to know is that they are looking for inconsistencies. You may not even realize this is happening, but answering in any way that allows the company to divert blame away from their client toward you will jeopardize your claim.

      The best way to protect your claim from this kind of unfair scrutiny is to hand all communications with the insurance company to your Spokane bicycle accident attorney.

      Another mistake is not seeking medical treatment when you desperately need it. This may happen because the adrenaline rush of the accident may energize you and reduce your pain. Always assume you may be injured more severely than you realize and get an exam. It will protect your life and your claim by revealing your injuries.

      A third mistake injured bicyclists make is putting their trust in the wrong attorney. There are many practice areas within the law in which an attorney may focus. You’ve got to be sure the lawyer you hand your claim to spends much of their time in personal injury. It’s also critically important to hire a trial lawyer, not just a regular personal injury lawyer who will simply try to settle your case.

      The experienced personal injury trial attorneys at Paukert & Troppmann prepare every claim as though it’s going all the way to trial. Having a lawyer who can handle any contingency gives you the leverage to maximize your compensation.
