Dealing with Insurance Companies After a Motorcycle Accident
When making a claim in a motorcycle accident, you will often have to deal with large insurance companies who are focused on paying the least amount of money possible for your claim or will try to deny it. You will likely need the help of an experienced professional who will not risk losing the full value of your case.
A motorcycle accident victim should be able to recover compensation for property damage, physical injury, medical bills, and pain and suffering if another party caused an accident due to negligent driving or lack of care. A motorcycle accident lawyer can help level the playing field in the arena of insurance adjusters and other insurance company representatives who may inaccurately assess the value of your claim.
Under Ohio law, a motorcycle accident victim has two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim against an individual(s), an insurance company, or both. Call an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer at Slater & Zurz.
