Insurance Companies and Motorcycle Accidents

A Lawyer Explains What They Don't Want You to Know

Insurance companies want you and other motorcycle accident victims to think they have your best interests at heart. They want you to trust them and accept whatever settlement offer they make after your crash and for you to think it's fair and their best offer.

Unfortunately, the truth is often very different. In many cases, many insurance companies automatically blame motorcyclists for causing collisions with other vehicles. That's because they think that anyone who rides a bike must be a reckless daredevil.

We know the truth. We know that most motorcyclists are safe, law-abiding citizens, and contrary to what some insurance companies might think, most motorcycle collisions are caused by other drivers. That's why it's important to have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side who will take a stand against insurance companies and anyone else who stands in your way for justice. That's why you need the Law Offices of Stuart L. Plotnick, LLC.

Games Insurance Companies Play

After your motorcycle accident, you could encounter all sorts of tactics used by insurance companies to reduce or deny your accident claim. Attorney Stuart L. Plotnick knows many of these strategies employed by insurance companies to discourage accident victims and limit their claims. That's because he used to work as a lead trial attorney for them, handling high-stakes motorcycle accident cases. Some of the games insurance companies may try to play include:

  • Contacting you after your accident and asking seemingly innocent questions designed to trick you into saying something that could jeopardize the outcome of your case.
  • Making you a settlement offer immediately after your motorcycle accident that doesn't even come close to covering the true cost of your accident-related expenses.
  • Refusing to negotiate in good faith with you or your attorney after your accident.

Some insurance companies think they can get their way by stonewalling us. Think again. We never give up, never surrender when it comes to fighting for the rights of motorcycle accident victims, and if that means taking them to court, well then, we do.

Make Your Motorcycle Accident Matter

Insurance companies don't intimidate us. That's because we know that most insurance companies are willing to pay injury victims far more than their initial offer. That's why it always pays to demand more money after your motorcycle accident.

Remember, once you agree to a settlement offer with an insurance company, that's often the only time you will be able to recover financial compensation for your crash. And since the financial impact of a motorcycle accident can often last many years, it's critical that you take all accident-related expenses into account. There is no rush to take a quick, low-ball offer.

Attorney Plotnick has decades of experience of doing just that. That's why he has such a strong track record of success. He knows how to accurately assess all the expenses associated with your motorcycle accident. That way, he can demand the money you deserve based on an accurate assessment of the long-term financial impact of your crash.
