Insurance Companies and Motorcycle Accidents
An accomplished attorney can take care of your claim
Motorcycle accidents happen fast, but the accident itself is just the beginning of a long and difficult process. If you've been injured in an accident, you may need extensive medical treatment, with the accompanying bills. You may be unable to work for a long time while recovering. And if you've sustained a permanent, debilitating injury such as a traumatic brain injury, you may need to radically change your lifestyle and pay for long-term care as well.
In principle, the insurance policy covering the driver who hurt you should pay for those costs. In practice, it's rarely that easy. Insurance companies know motorcycle accidents are high-stakes cases, and they're always looking for ways to reduce or deny your claim. They know that much of the public views bikers as irresponsible and reckless, and they believe they can use that against you if your case goes to trial.
That's why you need an accomplished motorcycle accident attorney on your side. NLE Law has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies and finding compensation for our clients' injuries. We've been representing injured motorcyclists in Seattle and the surrounding communities for decades, and we'll be honored to work with you as well.
We have decades of experience dealing with complex insurance claims
After a motorcycle accident, even dealing with your own insurance company can be fraught with peril. Insurers will often argue that you "assumed the risk" of injury by getting on a motorcycle. If you're up against an insurance company representing another driver, it gets even worse. The job of adjusters for at fault drivers is to limit their own liability and protect their client, not you.
We know the arguments insurance companies make - and we're adept at reviewing different policies that may be applicable to your accident to find the coverage you need to move forward. When you get us on your side, we'll deal with the insurance on your behalf. That way, you won't have to speak with their attorneys or adjusters directly. Our legal team will negotiate on your behalf and make sure your rights are protected.
Often, the insurance companies are looking to settle motorcycle accident claims as quickly as possible. We take a longer view. We recognize that injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash can affect our clients for the rest of their lives - and we'll prepare your case with your entire lifetime in mind.
