How Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC Can Help

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating due to the lack of protection from the street and other motorists. However, motorcyclists are entitled to the same damages as other vehicle operators despite the risks. Monetary settlements for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, ongoing care, diminished earning capacity, lost income, bike damage, and other costs must all be considered in the aftermath. Our job is to provide representation in these trying times. We do so by ensuring your insurance company does not shortchange you. You pay premiums, but that does not mean they won’t attempt to offer a low-ball settlement or deny the claim outright. Before wading into these waters, hire our firm to deal with your insurance company.

Trust The Law Firm With Unique Motorcycle Accident Experience

Motorcycle accidents are not like other “motor vehicle” accidents. First, unlike motor vehicles, motorcycles insurance does not contain standard (PIP) medical insurance coverage. As such, injured motorcyclists often have significant, unpaid medical bills that they have to address. Second, motorcycle accidents often leave skid marks or yaw marks in the road. Therefore, it is important to retain an experienced motorcycle law firm that can act quickly to preserve relevant evidence. Finally, motorcycle accidents, because a motorcycle does not offer the protection of a motor vehicle, often cause catastrophic injuries. Therefore, it is important for you to retain an experienced 70+ year old law firm that specializes in motorcycle accident cases.

Understanding the Legal Process and How We Help

Insurance companies don’t make it easy – and that is by design. They are not interested in paying out the best settlement possible. It is in their interest to limit their involvement. Plus, the legal claim process can be challenging to navigate, especially if the individual manages injuries and other inconveniences following the crash. We can determine whether you qualify for a claim and begin the process of filing said claim. In some cases, our involvement is enough to garner a satisfactory settlement. In other situations, we might have to get more involved. That process might involve:

  • Negotiations: Before we file a lawsuit or take legal action, we want to ensure your insurance company cannot be mollified. So we reach out to them to try to negotiate a fair settlement. You shouldn’t try to do this on your own – even if the insurance company is interested in negotiations. We know how to use the law to advocate for our clients. If negotiations fail, there are other options.
  • Lawsuits: If we cannot negotiate a satisfactory settlement for you, the next step is a lawsuit. One of the reasons we try negotiation first is lawsuits can be drawn out and cause headaches. However, they are sometimes the best possible action. We will investigate the circumstances of your accident, provide documentation, and make the strongest case possible.
  • Jury Selection: Jury trials in lawsuits aren’t always common. However, if your lawsuit makes its way to a jury, you will need an experienced attorney on your side. Most people assume motorcycle accidents occur due to the biker’s actions because of misconceptions about motorcycles. In fact, cars, trucks, and SUVs do most of the damage. We know what questions to ask in jury selection.
  • Obtaining A Settlement: The goal is to win a settlement that allows you to care for your injuries, repair your bike, and recover lost income. No one will work harder on your behalf than us. One of the best reasons to select our firm is we have an established record of winning substantial judgments for our clients. We win the sum you deserve.
