Motorcycles can be a cost-effective alternative to vehicles with poor gas mileage. However, a major downside to riding motorcycles is that the injuries from a potential accident can be devastating. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, contact an experienced Lexington motorcycle accident lawyer at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to discuss your claim.
Responsible parties in motorcycle accidents may involve the motorcycle seller or manufacturer, government entities responsible for dangerous road conditions, other drivers, or any other person or entity whose negligence or recklessness led to your accident. Regardless of the person or entity that was at fault for your accident, insurance companies for the defendants will almost always be involved. You do not have to speak with insurance companies when they contact you and it is likely in your best interests not to speak with them. To limit their financial exposure, insurance companies will frequently try to pin some or all of the fault on you and they sometimes do this by using something you say during a phone interview against you.
Our attorneys know how to handle insurance companies and they will manage all communication with their representatives so that you do not have to speak with them. They will negotiate for a fair settlement so that you are fully compensated and if insurance representatives are being unreasonable in their negotiations, our attorneys will take your case to trial. Most motorcycle accident claims do settle and insurance companies are often much more generous with their settlement offers when they know that plaintiffs are represented by competent trial attorneys who will not hesitate to take their case to trial.
