The Right (and Wrong) Reasons to Get Medical Treatment After An Accident

If you’re hurt in an accident, the most obvious course of action is to get medical treatment. But getting treatment after an accident has implications that go beyond just your physical health. People get pressure from their attorney to get treatment, even though their attorney may not disclose that often medical treatment from an accident isn’t covered by health insurance, and your legal settlement may depend on the treatment you get.

FAQ

What should I do if I get in a motorcycle accident in Peoria?

After a motorcycle accident in Peoria, you should first check for injuries and seek medical care if necessary. You should also notify law enforcement, so they can help you write an accident report and exchange driver information.

If you're able, collect photographic evidence of the point of contact, property damage, road conditions, and other factors relevant to the accident.

What is the average settlement for a motorcycle accident in Peoria?

While 75% of all personal injury cases settle for under $30,000, select motorcycle accident claims in Peoria can reach the hundreds of thousands. Factors that can impact the size of your settlement include medical bills, property damage, and the severity of injuries.

Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in Peoria necessary?

While it is not strictly necessary to hire a Peoria motorcycle accident lawyer, having professional legal advice can streamline the settlement process and help you secure support faster. Your motorcycle accident attorney from Mighty Law will have an in-depth knowledge of legal regulations and insurance industry standards, so they can help you take care of filing paperwork, evaluating offers, and much more.

How much does a motorcycle accident lawyer in Peoria cost through Mighty Law?

At Mighty Law, we don't believe in burdening you with bills. We charge 10% lower fees than the industry average, with pre-suit fees of 30% or less of the final settlement amount for settlements and post-suit fees of 36% or less for lawsuits. We also work on a contingency basis, so you only pay us if you win.

What does the process look like to get started filing my claim?

We initiate the process with a free screening where we learn more about your motorcycle accident case. If we think you're a good fit, we'll assign you a case manager to gather documentation, manage vehicle repairs, and create a custom treatment plan.

As soon as our team of motorcycle crash lawyers has enough information, we'll begin negotiating with the insurance company. We'll handle all of the back-and-forth until we reach an outcome that you're satisfied with. If that doesn't happen, we may then help you file a lawsuit.

How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in Peoria?

The average time to investigate a claim is 1.5 years. That being said, the length of your specific claim will vary depending on the insurance companies, your medical treatment, the possibility of a lawsuit, and other factors.

It's safe to expect at least several months of paperwork and negotiation. You should also expect that Mighty Law's motorcycle accident lawyers will work hard to get the ball rolling in the right direction from the first moment we connect.

What happens once my motorcycle accident case is settled?

When your case settles, we take our legal fees out of your gross settlement amount, and you receive compensation. If your case does not settle directly, sometimes, we may help you file a lawsuit. After that, your future is fully up to you.
