What if I am partly at fault for the motorcycle accident?
It all depends on whether you were partially or fully at fault. If you were only partially at fault and the other driver contributed to the accident’s occurrence, you may still be entitled to compensation. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers can review your case for you to determine if it is worth pursuing.
What should I tell the insurance companies?
Never admit fault over the phone or sign anything in writing from either your insurance company or the other driver’s company. First, you should discuss all aspects of the motorcycle accident with an experienced attorney. Your Jacoby & Meyers lawyer will let you know if you have a case worth pursuing, and after we decide to file, we will deal with the insurance company directly so you don’t have to.
