Do I Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Richmond?
You need experienced motorcycle accident lawyers in Richmond like Nadrich & Cohen to represent you if you want to obtain the compensation you’re entitled to. Motorcycle accident lawyers can force reluctant insurance companies to pay you what you deserve and protect you against insurance companies’ dirty tactics.
Insurance companies don’t want to pay you what you deserve, and they simply won’t if you don’t have a lawyer. The only way to make insurance companies put your well-being over their profit margin is to demonstrate to them that you can beat them in a lawsuit over any lowball offer, and you can demonstrate this by hiring experienced motorcycle accident attorneys.
Insurance adjusters are specifically trained to employ dirty, deceptive tactics in order to trick you into saying things that lower the value of your claim. You should never talk to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Instead, leave that up to experienced personal injury lawyers.
We can handle all communication and negotiation with insurance companies for you so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. We can also get you to the best doctors in the Bay Area who will treat your injuries on a lien, meaning you won’t have to pay them until your case is over.
