Insurance Companies Don’t Always Treat Motorcyclists Fairly

by Staff Blogger | July 26th, 2018

With summer in full swing, there are plenty of motorcyclists on Virginia’s streets, highways, and interstates at any given time.

Most motorcyclists are well aware of the risks they face every time they head out to ride, and that’s why you’ll see many wearing full gear, including their riding jacket, pants, helmet, gloves, and boots.

But even if motorcyclists like you take all of the necessary precautions, you can still be seriously injured if you’re involved in an accident with another vehicle. That’s because motorcycles have no built-in safety features to protect riders.

To make matters worse, it can be extremely difficult for injured riders to get compensation for their injuries. That’s because insurance companies are often biased against motorcyclists, and their adjusters may believe that motorcyclists themselves are to blame for their accidents.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke motorcycle accident attorneys fight to dispel negative stereotypes and biases that cause innocent riders like you to be denied a chance to get compensation for your accident-related expenses. When you choose us to handle your claim, we achieve that by taking the following steps:

  • We’ll prove the accident wasn’t your fault—Our legal team will collect evidence that shows the driver caused the crash, including the police accident report, witness statements, and even accident reconstruction data.
  • We’ll prove your injuries occurred during the crash—Insurance companies can and often do deny victims compensation if they don’t believe their injuries are linked to a particular accident. We’ll collect medical reports and even call on expert medical witnesses to prove your injuries were a direct result of the crash.

Let us help you get the respect, attention, and outcome you deserve from the insurance company. Call our legal team today for a free consultation.
