Don't let an insurance company decide what your claim is worth

In fact, don’t talk to them at all! Insurance companies will ask questions that have hidden legal implications, they will manipulate your answers to make the accident look like your fault or make it seem that your injuries aren’t severe, and they might pressure you into accepting a settlement worth far less than you actually need.

Motorcycles, Dirt Bikes, 3-Wheelers, and ATV or UTV Accidents

No matter how safe the driver is, a motorcycle or all terrain vehicle is inherently riskier than driving a car. They lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle so the potential for serious injuries to occur are far greater.

Motorcycles are less stable than passenger vehicles during maneuvers such as emergency braking and swerving and are less visible on the road. Per mile traveled in 2019, the number of deaths on motorcycles in the US was nearly 29 times the number in cars. (NHTSA, 2021)

A proper helmet is the most important piece of motorcycle safety equipment. The federal government estimates that wearing a helmet reduces the risk of dying in a crash by 37 percent. Unhelmeted riders are 3 times more likely than helmeted ones to sustain traumatic brain injuries in the event of a crash. (NHTSA, 2008)

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Given that up to 80% of motorcyclists are injured or killed in an accident, it is not surprising that when accidents do occur, the motorcyclists are likely to suffer injuries which can leave them permanently disabled or dead.

If you have suffered a common motorcycle accident you can expect high medical costs, wage loss and pain and suffering. If your motorcycle injuries were caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be able to get compensation from either their insurance company or by filing a personal injury claim.

When should I hire a personal injury attorney?

Immediately after an accident. Your attorney will file all the necessary claims on your behalf and deal directly with the insurance companies to protect your claim so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Whether you decide to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer or negotiate your own insurance settlement, nothing can be decided until you understand the full extent of your motorcycle injuries. Negotiating too early with the insurance company may eliminate your chance of receiving adequate compensation for your losses. 

Never sign an agreement or verbally agree to a settlement without consulting with an attorney first. Once a settlement offer has been accepted, you cannot ask for more!

We often consult with individuals who accepted $300 or $700 dollar settlements from the insurance companies within days of the accident. Unfortunately, they later realized that was not an adequate compensation for their pain, injuries, and future medical costs. A few hundred may seem like a lot in the short term, but over time you are the one who will be suffering because of someone else’s negligence.

Our attorneys have helped THOUSANDS of seriously injured victims get the treatment and compensation they deserve. Insurance companies have attorneys on their side, and so should you!
