Why Is the Insurance Company Giving You a Hard Time After Your Motorcycle Accident?

by Staff Blogger | November 19th, 2020

All individual people have certain biases. But we expect big corporations—especially ones like insurance companies that make decisions that impact our lives—to operate as objectively as possible. Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case. The people who decide who gets settlements and how much they get are called adjusters, and they often have many strong opinions and preconceived notions about claimants.

Those biases come into play most heavily with motorcycle accident claims. Insurance companies are almost always skeptical of compensation claims, and when those claims are filed by motorcyclists, their skepticism increases tenfold. That’s because insurers and their teams of adjusters often believe that all motorcyclists are reckless speed demons with little to no regard for safety.

But as we all know, the vast majority of motorcyclists are safety-conscious and committed to doing the right thing while on the road. Unfortunately, it can be difficult convincing the insurance company of your commitment to safety and obeying the law without a lawyer on your side. That’s where we come in.

We know that insurance companies are reluctant from the get-go to pay them what they deserve, and they even look at hard evidence with skepticism. But we’re here to say this: trust our experience and track record of success.
