FAQ: Motorcycle Accidents in San Jose
San Jose Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Do I need an attorney?
If you do not have legal representation from a San Jose motorcycle accident lawyer you may lose the opportunity to obtain certain types of compensation for damages. Unless you are a personal injury lawyer and have a full understanding of personal injury law you may accept a settlement that is far to low. At The Dunnion Law Firm we have over 35 years of experience, a full complement of the resources needed to prosecute cases, and a clear understanding of how to cut through the red tape and roadblocks used by insurance companies in order to get claims paid to the maximum extent possible.
What if I am offered a settlement?
You should never accept a settlement without having it reviewed by an attorney from our firm. It is almost certainlt too low or does not provide the full compensation you deserve for the damages incurred.
Should I turn over medical records?
Do NOT provide ANY information to an insurance company until you have legal representation. How the case is managed and the information provided from the very outset can be very critical in determining the final outcome outcome of the case.
Should I talk to an insurance adjuster?
Most insurance companies train their adjusters to find ways to reduce claims. Your statements while in shock, or even in the hospital on painkillers can reduce the settlement you receive. You should allow our firm to manage your case and avoid unnecessary losses.
How do I know what attorney to choose to represent me?
An attorney that focuses on cases such as yours is strongly advised and will be of greatest benefit to you and your case. Those attorneys that practice all types of law won't have the extensive experience and resources you could get when you contact a legal professional from our firm that truly specializes only in personal injury law.
What if my lawyer isn't working for me?
If you have a lawyer who is not providing the information you need, or who is not representing your best interests in the case, you have the right and you owe yourself the duty to contact our firm to review the situation and make sure that you are receiving the service, representation and compensation you deserve.
What types of motorcycle accident cases does the firm have experience in?
We aggressively seek compensation for injured motorcyclists and their families in accidents involving cars, buses, trucks, wrongful death and in cases of product liability such as tires, braking systems and other faulty systems if they contributed to the injury accident.
