The injuries that motorcyclists suffer during accidents are often devastating, debilitating, and disabling.
Injured riders may face long recovery periods, and they may be unable to return to work for weeks, months, or even years. Filing claims for compensation is a step many injured riders take, but they often find out that insurance companies are less than sympathetic or even downright hostile to their pleas for help.
At Carter Mario Law Firm, our Connecticut motorcycle accident attorneys know how devastating motorcycle accidents can be. We also know how unfair the post-accident process can be for victims, especially when they’re in desperate need of money for their medical bills and lost wages and the insurance companies turn a blind eye to their plight.
Insurance Companies Unfairly Target and Label Motorcyclists
While insurance companies are profit-driven businesses that reduce or deny claims whenever possible, they can be particularly unfair to injured motorcyclists.
That’s because insurance companies and their teams of adjusters may believe unfair and untrue stereotypes about riders. They often believe accidents are fully or partially motorcyclists’ fault, even when evidence suggests otherwise. In addition, they may not consider that motorcycle accidents can lead to more severe injuries than auto accidents, leading to reduced payments for victims.
