Motorcycle Accident Attorney Huntington WV
Serious Motorcycle Accidents – Catastrophic Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are usually caused by motorists who fail to see motorcycles at intersections or while driving down the highway. Usually, it’s only after an accident that a car or truck driver realizes he or she failed to see a motorcycle. As a result, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to claim motorcyclists share part of the blame in an accident. By alleging a motorcyclist remained in a driver’s blind spot, sped between cars, or ran through an intersection, insurers hope to reduce a claim payout or avoid one altogether.

Dealing With Insurance Claims Adjusters – Protecting Your Interests
Insurance companies are interested in controlling costs. Paying on a claim is, in their bottom-line driven world, a financial loss that will be recouped, hopefully, somewhere else. Consequently, insurers employ a number of techniques to reduce the amount they have to pay in claims. A claims adjuster may call and ask to talk to you about an accident hoping you will say something that can later use against you in court. Or, a claims adjuster may offer to replace your totaled bike. However, if you accept a claims payment on your bike, it becomes the property of the insurer. Afterwards, they can legally destroy it, so it can’t be evaluated for evidence later at trial.

Once you hire us, insurers are required to go through our office and leave you alone.
