Motorcyclists have very little protection during a crash. Injuries suffered in an accident can include road rash (cuts and scrapes on the skin) and nerve damage. More serious injuries can include broken bones, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. Motorcyclists hurt in a crash may require hospitalization, surgery, medication and physical therapy.
The Cost of a Motorcycle Wreck Can Forever Alter Your Life
Medical expenses after a motorcycle accident can add up quickly. Injuries may prevent victims from working for some time, leading to a loss of income. Other injuries can cause permanent damage, which may require lifetime care.
Our attorneys determine the full impact the accident has had on your life. The damages you've suffered may include current and future medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and disability or disfigurement. Even so, many insurance companies will try to avoid responsibility and pay you as little as possible. They may assume you were somehow at fault since many insurance companies often automatically blame motorcyclists.
That's why we will look into your accident ourselves. We will review all evidence, including accident reports, medical records and witness statements. Our attorneys know how to build a strong case that proves another's negligence caused the accident that left you injured.
We Know How to Beat the Insurance Companies
There are many tactics insurance companies use to try to get out of paying you the compensation you deserve. They may make you an initial settlement offer, saying it's the best they can do - but it won't come anywhere near covering the true costs of your accident. Or they may delay processing your claim, or otherwise make it harder for you to get the compensation you need.
We know the games insurance companies play and we don't put up with them. Our attorneys can put together a strong case and make it clear we are prepared to fight for you in court. This often convinces insurance companies it is in their best interests to negotiate a settlement that works for you. But if they still won't negotiate, we will take them to trial.
