Hurt on Your Motorcycle? The Insurance Company May Be Biased Against You.

by Staff Blogger | September 3rd, 2019

There are many perks to riding a motorcycle. Better gas mileage, easier parking, and the freedom of the open road are just a few perks that riders enjoy. But motorcycles can also be dangerous due to their lack of safety features. When people are hurt on motorcycles, they often suffer serious injuries that can result in big medical bills and weeks or months away from work.

To make matters worse, getting compensation for motorcycle accidents and injuries isn’t easy. Personal injury claims always come with some degree of difficulty due to insurance companies wanting to pay victims as little as possible, but motorcycle accidents can be even more difficult. That’s because insurers and their teams of adjusters often view motorcyclists with skepticism and bias. They often believe that motorcyclists are reckless and may have been at fault for their own crashes.

At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyers are well aware of this bias, and we do everything in our power to help injured motorcyclists get fair settlements. That means collecting evidence that proves the motorcyclists weren’t at fault, gathering medical records to prove injuries aren’t pre-existing, and negotiating to get victims maximum compensation.

Don’t let the insurance company deny or dismiss your claim because of its bias or refusal to listen to the facts of what happened. Contact us today to get our experienced legal team on your side. We know the tactics insurance companies use to deny victims like you the money they deserve, and we’ll fight to stop them in their tracks.
