What is a Motorcycle Accident Claim?
After being involved in a motorcycle accident, you may file a motorcycle accident claim, which is considered a personal injury case. In order to successfully file your claim, you must prove that the other driver was negligent. Our experienced attorneys at Portner & Shure will gather all of the relevant information and fight for you to receive the best possible results. We will show that the other driver neglected their duty of care to you on the road and that this negligence caused your injuries.
Another important thing to note is that motorcycle insurance differs from car insurance. Therefore, you need an experienced attorney familiar with motorcycle accidents specifically in order to receive the maximum compensation available.Learn more about the citizenship process and how else our law firm can help you with an immigration case by watching this brief video on our YouTube channel.
In most cases, the liability adjuster will try to find you “contributorily negligent.” In Maryland, if you are even 1% responsible for the accident, the carrier may deny your claim. Thus, you should not discuss your case thoroughly with a liability adjuster without retaining a top Frederick, Maryland motorcycle accident attorney first. Liability adjusters will often try to contact you and offer a quick settlement. These offers are usually far less than your claim is worth, so SAY NO!
