Motorcycle Accident? Don’t Count on Fair Treatment from the Insurance Company.
When you’re injured because of someone else’s negligence, you expect the other driver’s insurance company to be cooperative—especially when there’s plenty of evidence showing they were at fault. But insurance companies don’t like paying fair settlements to injured victims, especially when they’re motorcyclists.
Bikers don’t get fair treatment from insurance companies because insurance companies believe stereotypes about them. Decades of movies and television shows portraying bikers as reckless law breakers has influenced the way adjusters think about motorcyclists. That means that even when they’re completely innocent after crashes, adjusters may reduce or deny their claims based on nothing but preconceived biases!
To make matters worse, many injured bikers simply throw up their hands and give up on getting fair compensation. Insurance companies know that people who are seriously injured rarely have the time, energy, or patience to fight back, so they hold out on paying compensation in the hopes that victims will simply go away.
But the day you call a lawyer is the day the pendulum swings back in your favor. At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke motorcycle accident lawyers have all the time, energy, and patience in the world. We also have decades of experience fighting for the rights of injured victims. In other words, we’re the insurance company’s worst nightmare.
