I’ve represented motorcycle riders in Indiana for over 25 years. And today, i want to tell you about something that I’m pretty confident you don’t know. It’s something that the insurance companies will try to use against you if you’re injured in a motorcycle accident.
A Dirty Trick
Here’s what this is all about: when a biker is injured in a collision, they’ll seek medical treatment. A lot of times, the insurance company will challenge the medical treatment that the biker receives. It will say that the treatment was inappropriate or excessive for treating the injuries that the biker sustained. They’re doing this to try to shirk their responsibility for the treatment.
What Indiana Law Says
What they’re not telling you though is that Indiana law says that the insurance company is responsible for that treatment anyway. Even if the doctor malpractices, Indiana law says that the insurance company of the vehicle that caused the collision is responsible for that treatment. Don’t let the insurance adjustor fool you into thinking that they’re not responsible for your treatment just because they say that it wasn’t appropriate.
What You Should Do
Know your rights, know the law, and make sure that you are fully compensated and you hold those who cause collisions fully accountable for the injuries they have caused. You’re welcome to give me a call, I’ll hop on the phone with you. We’ll talk things through and make sure that you are fully protected under the law.
As always, stay safe out there, enjoy the ride and we’ll talk again later.
