If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, the insurance company of the other driver may use several tactics to avoid paying you the full compensation you deserve. One tactic is to delay payment. Another is to try to shift blame for the accident to you.
At The Cantrell Law Firm, we are a full-service law firm with Clinton motorcycle accident lawyers dedicated to helping accident injury victims obtain the help they need and the compensation they deserve.

Protecting Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident
People who are accustomed to treating others fairly may expect the same treatment from others. Unfortunately, insurance companies are more concerned about their bottom lines than helping injured people.
There are many tactics that insurance companies use to shortchange accident victims:
Ask you to make a recorded statement: Insurance company representatives are experienced at getting people to say things that will damage their case.
Offer you a low-ball settlement: If you accept the settlement, your case is often over. You will not be able to go back later and obtain more money if your damages turn out to be more serious that you first thought.
Drag out your case: The longer your case goes on, the more likely you will accept any settlement offer. You may also do something that will damage your case such as discontinue medical treatment.
Shift blame to you: In Tennessee, your recovery in a personal injury lawsuit is reduced by any percentage of negligence that can be assigned to you. Even if the other driver pulled out in front of you, the other driver could claim you were speeding and therefore were partially at fault.
Without a Clinton motorcycle accident lawyer to protect your rights, you could end up being injured again, this time by the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Once you retain our attorneys to represent you, we will deal with the insurance company so you can concentrate on getting your health and your life back.
