I was injured in a motorcycle accident and not sure if I should get a lawyer.?
Question by jiu-jitsu guy: I was injured in a motorcycle accident and not sure if I should get a lawyer.?
I was hit by a car that failed to yield while he was turning left and I going straight. He was ticketed and at fault. I suffered a broken leg that required two surgeries and 3 days at the hospital. I only have liability but have been told that the other person’s insurance “should” cover the costs.
I am not sure if I should hire a lawyer but should I? Is it possible that the other insurance wont cover everything, including pain and suffering and loss of wages? But my main concern now are the medical bills. Very expensive I am sure.
If I do go with a lawyer, is there a point in time where it might be too late? It has been a week and a half since the accident. I know they would not want me talking directly with the insurance and stuff like that.
Thanks in advance. I hope to be on my feet again very soon.
Thanks to everyone who has replied. I felt like I needed a lawyer right away but didn’t know I have up to one year to do this. Now I will take my time in choosing one.
