Motorcyclists understand that riding a motorcycle can be dangerous, but knowing this does not prepare them for the injuries they may sustain in a motorcycle accident. Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include head trauma, spinal cord damage, fractured bones, and road rash. These injuries can greatly affect many areas of a victim’s life, and lead to a significant amount of emotional and physical pain.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, seek legal representation from an attorney at Trevino Law Office as soon as possible. With my help, motorcycle accident victims can recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Why Should You Hire A San Antonio Motorcycle Accident Attorney For Your Crash?
The law does not require motorcycle accident victims to be represented by an attorney, but hiring an attorney is strongly recommended.
The injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can be devastating. Minor injuries may heal within a few weeks, but victims with more severe injuries such as head trauma or spinal cord damage may not see significant improvements for months or years. With long-term injuries like these, it can be difficult to calculate the value of your claim without help from an attorney.
For example, victims will not know how to estimate their future expenses, losses, and pain, but an attorney will. If you attempt to handle the claim without an attorney, it’s possible that you will underestimate the value of the claim and accept an unfair settlement from the insurance company. Hiring an attorney will prevent this mistake—plus, it will also give victims more time to focus on recovering from their injuries.
Attorneys also play an important role in dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Insurance adjusters are skilled negotiators that are trained to attempt to lower the value of claims in any way possible. But, victims don’t know this until it’s too late. Victims who are not represented by an attorney may end up falling for one of the insurance adjuster’s tricks that are designed to unfairly lower the value of their claim.
An experienced attorney won’t let an insurance adjuster get away with this. Trevino Law Office knows how important it is for its clients to recover as much compensation as possible, so I will aggressively negotiate with the insurance company until a fair settlement is reached. If the insurance adjuster refuses to make a fair offer, Trevino Law Office will begin preparing a case for trial.
These are just two of the ways that a lawyer can help people after a motorcycle accident. To learn more, speak to Trevino Law Office today.
After A Motorcycle Accident, When Should You Contact A Lawyer?
Your first priority should be seeking medical attention after a motorcycle accident. Even if you do not believe that you are seriously injured, it’s important to see a doctor since many injuries may not exhibit symptoms right away.
After being treated by a medical professional, it’s time to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer in San Antonio. Doing this as soon as possible is important so that the attorney can start to collect evidence relevant to your case. For example, bystanders who witnessed the accident will need to be interviewed right away. But, if you wait too long to contact an attorney, the witnesses may not remember the details of the accident by the time the attorney conducts an interview with them. Evidence like this is crucial to proving liability in your case, so don’t wait to contact an attorney after a crash.
