If you sustained injuries while on a motorcycle due to the negligence of another motorist, it is important that you know your rights and duties to ensure that you are properly compensated. Often times, motorcyclists and their passengers are unfairly stereotyped as being at fault for an accident, even when the evidence clearly shows that another person was at fault. We, the attorneys at Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, are experienced in handling claims on behalf of motorcyclists and their passengers, and will fight to overcome the stereotype unfairly cast on motorcycle enthusiasts and work hard to get you the compensation that you deserve.
If you have been injured while operating or riding on a motorcycle, contact us before speaking with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Do not discuss your case with the at-fault party’s insurance company and never sign anything until you have had the opportunity to seek legal advice. In most cases, you are entitled to be compensated for the damage to your motorcycle, your medical bills, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering. If you sign a release before knowing the full extent of your injuries, you may end up preventing yourself from being fully compensated.
The insurance adjuster will pretend to be sympathetic and act as if he/she is your friend and is trying to help you. Do not be fooled. The adjuster’s job is not to be your friend. His/her job is to ensure that your claim gets resolved for as little money as possible.
We will ensure that your rights to compensation are protected and will use our skill, knowledge, and expertise to get you the recovery you deserve. Before speaking with the insurance company, contact the attorneys of Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC at 419-241-5500 or toll free at 1-800-637-1549.
Be advised that Ohio law provides a limited amount of time for a person injured by the negligence of another driver to settle their claim or file a lawsuit. Failure to do so within this limited period could bar you from getting the compensation you deserve. Do not delay. Contact us today to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. The initial consultation is free, and there is no attorney fee unless a recovery is obtained on your behalf.
