Motorcyclists, Don’t Count on the Insurance Company Believing Your Story After a Crash

When accident and injury victims contact insurance companies seeking compensation, the insurance companies are almost always skeptical of their stories by default. But when those injured victims are motorcyclists, their skepticism grows even further. It’s common knowledge among motorcyclists and personal injury lawyers that insurance companies are often biased against riders.

Unfortunately, that bias leads to claims being reduced, ignored, or denied far more often for riders than for other injured victims. It’s common for insurance companies to picture the injured riders who contact them as being reckless riders who speed, weave in and out of traffic, and put themselves and others on the road in danger.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we know better. We know that most motorcyclists are responsible and committed to safety. When injured riders reach out to us for help, we begin building their claims knowing that the insurance companies will probably be biased against them, and we work even harder to prove their innocence and the other drivers’ liability.

Sadly, insurance companies being biased against riders isn’t limited to the insurers of at-fault drivers. It can also be riders’ own insurance companies, too. It’s a rude awakening when loyal customers are denied by their own insurers after years or even decades of paying premiums, but it happens all the time.
