Being injured in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatizing experience. Because motorcycles do not offer as much protection as other motor vehicles, the injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident can be even more severe than injuries resulting from an automobile accident.
If you have suffered injuries from a motorcycle accident, we encourage you to seek medical help as soon as possible even if you do not feel like you have been injured. Many injuries take time to surface, and getting medical help from the onset will enable you to receive the possible treatment you deserve.
There are several forms of compensation you may be able to claim, depending on the nature of the accident. If the driver who caused the accident has a record of driving in a reckless manner, you may be able to claim additional damages. If you have lost a loved one as a result of a motorcycle accident, you may be able to claim wrongful death damages such as loss of companionship and loss of future earnings.
While many insurers operate in an honest and legitimate manner, some companies make it very difficult to obtain compensation by putting unethical rules in place or making an injured person file several different claims. If you are battling with both injuries and an insurance agency, our firm can help. We can deal with the insurance agency responsible for handling your claim and, if warranted, work to get compensation for you as quickly as possible.
