Motorcycle Accident and Car Crash Injury Attorneys in Raleigh, NC
No one ever expects to be involved in a motorcycle accident or car accident. You probably didn’t leave your house thinking, “Today is my turn to get injured in a wreck!” These events are always an unwelcome surprise, and they are invariably a hugely disruptive burden for families.
Injured riders may end up in the hospital for weeks, assuming they survive their injuries. The road to recovery can be long and expensive. People injured in motorcycle crashes and car accidents may not be able to return to work right away, and many lose out on weeks, months or in some cases even years of income. Families are faced with mounting medical bills and an inability to cover rent or put food on the table.
It’s not uncommon for motorcycle or car crash injuries to turn lives upside down or force people into bankruptcy.
The fact that these injuries never would have happened if another driver had been acting responsibly shouldn’t make it feel worse, but often times it does. People in these situations have every right to feel like a great injustice has been done to them, and they absolutely deserve compensation because of it.
Unfortunately, the other driver’s insurance company doesn’t always see it that way. They don’t want to part with their money, which is why they’ll try to make the accident your fault.
Insurance company claims adjusters and lawyers do this for a living. They have a deep bag of tricks they’ll use to convince you to settle for less than you deserve or try to twist what really happened to make it seem like you were responsible for your own injuries.
If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident or car crash, it’s likely in your best interest to reach out to a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. The personal injury attorneys at the Motorcycle Law Group have negotiated with insurance companies on behalf of thousands of injured riders, including many in Raleigh. We’re familiar with all of the insurance company’s tricks and we aren’t intimidated by them.
If the insurance company doesn’t want to settle for what you deserve, we won’t hesitate to take them to court and argue before a jury.
Insurance companies know that injured riders can be at a disadvantage during jury trials. They may even act like they’re happy to take your case to court because they don’t think you have much of a chance. If you’re a rider, you probably don’t need to be told that a lot of motorists out there have a bias against you. That means there’s a high likelihood that some of the people on the jury, and maybe even the judge, will be predisposed to assume you’re the reckless one.
