Responsible Parties and Insurance Companies

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 any insurance company when they contact you and it is likely in your best interests not to speak with them. To limit their financial exposure, an insurance company 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.
