Many motorcyclists suffering after an accident turn to their insurance company first. But that may be a mistake. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, which means their profits may suffer if they pay for your losses. Motorcycle accidents are often more expensive because of the severity of the damage.

Having a motorcycle accident lawyer on your side while settling with an insurance company can make all the difference. Your lawyer can help you seek a fair settlement, or they can represent you in court if the insurance company refuses to settle.
