What You Should Know About Motorcycle Crash Injury Cases

Serious injuries often result from motorcycle crashes because bikes do not offer the same level of protection that motor vehicles do. This may include internal trauma, road rash, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and more. When the incident was the result of another party’s negligent actions, an injured motorcyclist may be entitled to financial compensation for their losses through a personal injury claim. This usually involves bringing the claim against the at-fault party and their insurance company. There are some circumstances where the injured biker will have to turn to their insurer for recourse if the other side does not have liability coverage or does not have enough insurance to pay for damages incurred. This will involve bringing a claim through uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage. As with any claim with the insurance carrier, it may be challenging to get reimbursed for what you have lost, particularly when traumatic injuries are involved.

The unfortunate reality is that the goal of all insurance companies is to cut down on costs as a way of maximizing their profit margins. That often comes at the expense of parties injured in accidents. Most insurance carriers will resort to any defense tactic to get out of paying fair compensation on a bodily injury claim. While a motorcyclist may be able to handle a claim involving property damage and no injuries, bikers will need the assistance of a skilled accident attorney for any collision that results in trauma. That is because a Madera motorcycle accident lawyer will have the best interests of their client at heart throughout the legal process, unlike the other side. What injured parties should know is that quality legal representation does not require any upfront costs and retainer fees. That is because most personal injury lawyers, such as those at, handle cases under a contingent fee agreement. This means you owe nothing unless your attorney recovers fair compensation on your behalf. Learn more about our legal team by watching this video.
