Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Lawyers for Victims

Insurance companies flag claims when evidence the injury victim did not follow through on recommendations for medical care. The claims adjuster might try to make a lowball offer, claiming that you exacerbated your injuries, and they are not liable for all of your pain and suffering. In some extreme cases, the insurance company might try to deny liability for your injuries altogether.

An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Los Angeles can usually prevent your claim from being denied if the other driver caused the accident.

Only a Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney can give you a fair valuation of what your claim is worth. Remember, the insurance company is not on your side.
