Work With Legal Professionals
Riders are safer than ever: our roads are typically well maintained, and body armor and helmet technology are far better now than even ten or fifteen years ago. Accidents still happen though, and when they do the results can be extreme – serious internal injuries, multiple broken bones, long-term disabilities, and even death are not uncommon in motorcycle collisions.
That is one of the reasons that we all have insurance: to make sure that we have some financial cover in the worst-case scenarios. Unfortunately, insurance companies can often be problematic – delaying, diminishing, or even outright denying legitimate claims. This happens when you are at your most vulnerable, with work being missed, expensive vehicle repairs, and mounting medical bills.
At Palermo Law, we think that this is unforgivable behavior. That is why our Huntington motorcycle accident lawyers fight to get you the money that you are owed, as fast as we can. No one should be taking advantage of you, and we are your first and last line of defense to make sure that they do not.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in or around Huntington, you should call Palermo Law as soon as you are able to.
Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Collisions can be caused by any number of factors. Some of the more common claims that we see are:
- Road conditions – the slightest inconsistency in the road surface can result in a wheel losing traction and the bike becoming out of control. This could be anything from some wet leaves, litter, a pothole, or gravel.
- Weather conditions – the weather has two chief effects on riders. Firstly, visibility can be seriously diminished by rain, fog, or bright sunlight. Secondly, the bike can be difficult to control if the ground is wet or icy, or there are strong and inconsistent gusts of wind to compensate against.
- Other drivers – any rider will tell you that the biggest risk they face is the drivers of other vehicles. The size and speed of bikes can mean that car or truck drivers simply do not see the vehicle and attempt a dangerous maneuver such as crossing lanes, turning, or swerving.
The nature of motorcycle riding means that when these (or other) types of crashes occur, they are particularly dangerous. Unlike in a car or truck where you have large ‘crumple zones’ built into the structure of the car, airbags, seatbelts, and the physical roof/door structure to protect the driver and passengers, the bike rider is exposed with nothing but a helmet and protective gear for protection.
This means that even in a ‘minor’ accident, the rider is dragged along the ground at speed, and in more major crashes, they can be outright ejected from the bike and thrown many hundreds of feet. The injuries that are sustained in these types of collisions can be catastrophic – so make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve or you may find yourself in serious financial trouble.
Palermo Law: Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Huntington
Palermo Law is a long-established law firm, with attorneys working exclusively on personal injury cases (including motorcycle accidents) for more than twenty years. During those years, our Huntington motorcycle accident lawyers have seen everything there is to see when it comes to the ways insurance companies will try to take advantage of individuals involved in collisions, and we have developed an impressive track record of holding them to account for their actions.
Our team will take care of every part of your claim. Starting with collecting the relevant evidence from your crash, including police and witness reports, video footage, and other physical evidence, and moving on to making contact with the relevant parties – we will make sure that our case is as strong as it can be by conducting a thorough investigation.
Using our decades of experience, we will calculate the amount of compensation that a jury would be likely to award you in a court case. That figure will then be the foundation of our negotiations, and any settlement offer that is to low will be met with aggressive litigation. We are not afraid to take these multi-million dollar insurance corporations to court: we have done it many times before, with great success.
Ultimately, our driving mission is to make sure that you are not taken advantage of, and that you are not left struggling for money because of an accident. To that end, our Huntington motorcycle accident law firm will do whatever it takes to make sure that you and your interests are protected.
Why Choose Palermo Law
At Palermo Law, we take all claims on a contingency basis. You may know this as ‘no-win, no-fee’ and it means that we are so confident in our ability to win compensation in motorcycle crash cases, that if for some reason we fail then you do not need to pay us a dime.
Further to that guarantee, you do not need to pay anything upfront for us to take your case. We can also cover any and all costs as the claim progresses – it is our way of ensuring that everyone can access the justice they need, regardless of economic circumstances. Immediately after an incident, and for the ensuing months, money can be tight: particularly if you are unable to work, and you have mounting medical bills. That should not stop you from getting an experienced legal team on your side.
We start all of our clients off with a free, no-obligation consultation with a Huntington motorcycle accident attorney. It is an opportunity for us to get to know the details of your case and to start to build a strategy for ensuring that you get the maximum possible compensation.
Always Trial Ready
Many injury lawyers will take your claim on, and do the bare minimum of work as they expect to settle out of court. The insurance companies know this, and so when it comes to negotiations, they offer a lowball amount, which the law firm is then inclined to accept as they are not ready or willing to take things further.
That is not how we operate at Palermo Law. We prepare every single case for litigation – then, if we think the offer at the negotiating table is too low, we can simply decline it. It is not in our interest, or yours, to accept compensation that is any less than the maximum available, and we are fully prepared and more than willing to pursue that amount through litigation if necessary.
