Motorcyclists are Over-Represented in Crash Injuries & Fatalities

While motorcyclists make up only 3% of road users in Washington State, they account for 15% of all fatalities and 19% of serious injuries (source: Washington Traffic Safety Commission). Unlike passenger vehicles, motorcyclists have nothing to protect them from the road. As a result, injuries are often severe and may include:

On top of this, it’s not uncommon for a victim to experience mental health impacts such an anxiety, depression, or PTSD. The medical costs involved for your treatment can easily soar into the thousands, particularly if you required a hospital stay or ongoing therapy.

The Unfortunate Truth About Insurance Companies

Don’t expect the driver’s insurance company to be sympathetic or play fair. Remember, the goal of the insurance company is to minimize their losses and protect their profits. In other words, they will do all they can to pay you the least amount as possible.

We encourage you to watch out for some of their well-known tricks.

  • Getting you to settle too quickly. Sometimes, you’ll be offered a settlement amount too quickly – even while you’re still seeking treatment. Once you’ve accepted a settlement and cashed that check, you can’t go back and request more money. Be cautious about agreeing to anything in writing before speaking with a qualified personal injury attorney who handles motorcycle claims.
  • Asking for a recorded statement. Providing the other driver’s insurance agent with a recorded statement only benefits them, not you. Anything you say can be used to discredit your claim. Our advice? Don’t do it.
  • Being shuffled around. Sometimes, instead of getting you to settle too quickly, the insurance company will drag out and complicate the process. For instance, you may find your account transferred from agent to agent.

In our decades of experience, we have encountered these and many more tactics that insurance companies use to delay, discredit, and even deny your claim. For more information, one of our attorneys has written a free e-book called What Insurance Companies Don’t Want You to Know. Request yours by filling out the short form.
