Father in law just in motorcycle accident while working as driver for diagnostic emissions company. Insurance company calling him. What should he do

1 Answers. Asked on Sep 11th, 2017 on Personal Injury - California
More details to this question:
Company he works for tests emissions on exotic motorcycle for manufacturers that want to sell in the US. He is paid to put miles on the vehicles for certain testing thresholds (ei. 5,000 miles, 10,000 miles etc). While driving he was in an accident he claims was caused by a defect in the vehicle. He broke his tail bone and knee and sustained a variety of injuries and is now out of the hospital but bedridden (bought him hospital bed and taking care of him). He's getting calls from what I assume is Workman's Comp adjuster. What do you suggest he do?

He should retain both a worker's compensation attorney and a personal injury lawyer.  

Report Abuse
Personal Injury
Have you been injured in accident that was someone else's fault? Has a doctor's mistake caused long-term health issues? Have you been hurt by a defective product? Under state personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation if you are hurt as a result of another person or company's negligent, reckless or deliberate actions. Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
