Police officers and insurance companies are known to be biased against bikers. This can make it difficult to get fair compensation for your injuries after your Alaska motorcycle accident.
It is not unusual to be contacted by an insurance adjuster in the early days following a motorcycle crash. They will talk a good game, seeming to put your needs and interests first. But in reality, they have their bottom line in mind. They are hoping to pay out as little as possible in your case. It is in the insurance company’s best interests that you agree to a quick settlement. However, that settlement will leave you with far less money than you deserve. Without a fair and just settlement, you could be left with thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages, and uncompensated pain and suffering.

Serious injuries are common in motorcycle crashes. When drivers speed, use cell phones, or drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they put everyone on the road at risk. Even careful drivers often fail to see bikers on the road. This is referred to as “inattentional blindness.” It describes when the drivers can see your motorcycle but do not seem to register it. Studies have shown that this lack of focus can lead to crashes. And, as we know well, motorcycle crashes result in devastating injuries.
When you are hurt, you suffer more than just medical bills. Your injuries often mean time away from work, sometimes without pay. You may experience some degree of disability that will affect your future career options. Perhaps you will have ongoing pain that will interfere with your ability to live your life to the fullest. For these reasons and more, it is important to have an experienced Alaska motorcycle lawyer on your side. Contact 1-800-MOTORCYCLE today to learn more.
