Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to serious injuries for riders involved in the accident. As a result, recovering from a motorcycle accident can be a difficult and painful experience for an injured rider. Recovering from an accident can also put significant financial stress on you and your family — as a result, a quick settlement offer from the insurance company can seem very attractive, since that money will help pay off bills and other expenses you are facing.
However, the reality is that quick settlements offered by an insurance company rarely cover all the expenses that an injured motorcycle accident victim will incur by the end of their road to recovery — unfortunately, insurance companies are relying on an injured victim’s need for quick cash to get away with paying less than the insurance company or an at-fault rider may be legally responsible for. That is why it is critical that, when you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you speak to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who can help you understand what your claim is really worth and will fight to get you full and fair compensation.

Summit is a city in Union County, New Jersey. Summit first gained prominence as the location where James Kent built the home he retired to, Summit Lodge; Kent was a jurist who was Columbia College’s first professor of law and who served as a Justice, later Chief Justice, of the New York Supreme Court. Summit was formally organized as Summit Township in 1869, formed from portions of New Providence Township (today, Berkeley Heights) and Springfield Township. Summit was incorporated as a city in 1899. Summit became famous beginning in the 19th century as an escape for wealthy New Yorkers in search of fresh air. Today, Summit has maintained its suburban character. In the 2000 Census, Summit had the 16th highest per capita income in New Jersey; in 2019, Bloomberg ranked Summit as the 65th richest town in America by average household income.
If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you may have several options for getting money to help pay for your medical treatment expenses. First, you can have your medical treatment covered through your health insurance. However, if you later receive compensation from the party at fault for your accident, your health insurer may seek to be reimbursed for the benefits it paid out on your behalf (so that you do not receive a “double” recovery). In addition, you may also be able to obtain coverage for medical expenses through the personal injury protection coverage under your motorcycle insurance policy. PIP coverage is considered “no-fault” coverage, because you are entitled to benefits regardless of who was at fault for your accident. PIP coverage can also provide reimbursement for other expenses, such as lost wages.
Although you are not obligated to have an attorney help you if you decide to accept a settlement with the insurance company, it is advisable to seek out the assistance of an attorney before you do accept a settlement. An attorney can evaluate any settlement offer you receive and advise you as to whether it represents fair and full compensation of your damages. An attorney can also negotiate on your behalf to get you an even better settlement offer.
