In many motorcycle accidents, insurance carriers will try to point the finger at the biker saying he or she was speeding or weaving or otherwise riding recklessly. When it comes to rear-end accidents, however, the case is far less up to debate. If you are hit from behind, the driver who hit you must be held liable for their failure to be aware of their surroundings and stop in time.
If you or someone you love was hurt in a motorcycle crash caused by rear-end impact, failure to yield or trying to beat a red light, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and injuries which are often both physical and emotional. Contact Team Law right away to learn your legal rights and to find out how we can put our legal knowledge and expertise to work for you and your family to get you the financial damages you deserve.
Make no mistake about it, a rear-end collision can be devastating for any accident victim. Motorcyclists have an increased likelihood of getting seriously hurt because they are not protected by tons of steel, airbags and seatbelts. Instead, bikers have very little but a jacket and helmet to cushion a fall.
The injuries sustained in rear-end accidents, such as traumatic brain injury, spine and neck injuries, broken bones, amputated limbs and road rash, can be especially catastrophic; wrongful death is, unfortunately, common in these crashes.
When careless motorists text and drive, drive drunk or drugged, fail to obey the rules of the road and exhibit any other reckless driving behaviors that result in a rear-end or other type of motorcycle crash, we understand that you want to hold them responsible for their mistakes. Representatives of insurance companies, on the other hand, want to pay out as little as possible for your claim. When they contact you, they will surely sound compassionate and caring. They will attempt to collect information from you about the accident and your injuries. They may even make a low-ball settlement offer in an effort to convince you not to go forward with legal action.
Do Not Talk to Insurance Company Representatives before speaking with a skilled, battle-tested motorcycle injury attorney at Team Law. The insurance company may act like it’s on your side; it’s not.
