Hire a Former Insurance Defense Lawyer
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, do not accept the first offer or settlement that you receive from your insurance company. First, speak to our knowledgeable New Orleans personal injury lawyers. Though it is ideal to think that your insurance company is acting with your best interests in mind, this is not often the case.
Insurance companies will try to offer a settlement that is far less than what you are actually eligible to receive.
At The Voorhies Law Firm, we have experience as former insurance defense lawyers. We can utilize our inside knowledge of common tactics and strategies that an insurance company may try to use to minimize your compensation. By representing you to the best of our ethical ability, we can help you receive the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve after someone negligently caused you injuries and property damages.
Understanding the Nature of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accident victims will be faced with immediate medical needs. The resulting injuries tend to be much more severe, and as a result, will be much more costly to treat. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident that has been caused by a negligent motorist, you must seek legal representation from a skilled New Orleans motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm as soon as possible.
Common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include the following:
- Road rash
- Lacerations, contusions
- Paralysis or quadriplegia
- Amputation, disfigurement, and loss of limbs
- Broken bones, dislocated joints, severed ligaments
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Brain injuries
Unfortunately, no matter how cautiously a motorcyclist may drive, most motorcycle accidents could have been entirely preventable if other motorists had paid closer attention to the roads and the other drivers on them. The fact of the matter remains the same, even when motorcyclists wear helmets or other protective gear, negligent motorists in larger vehicles can cause unsuspecting motorcyclists catastrophic, life-threatening, or even fatal injuries.
