RI Bike Crash Lawyer Best Tips: Avoiding The Blame Game

Motorcycle and Auto insurance companies are in the business of making money, often at a biker’s expense.  These big insurance companies prey on the public’s bias against bikers.  If you are in a bike accident and suffer personal injuries, you can bet that they will do all they can to avoid or minimize paying your for your bike and injuries. I have handled these cases for years, as have our entire highly ranked personal injury law firm.

So, to start, according to the NHTSA, motorcyclists are about 28 times as likely as a passenger car occupant to die in a motor vehicle traffic accident.  The public thinks that bikers are loud, speeding, and otherwise violating the law.

Without the best bike accident lawyer – the deck is stacked against you!

We know how to overcome these biases.  After a bike crash, you need to call or text us right away because the insurance company is immediately starting a file on you!

We need to jump on our own investigation.  From the same NHTSA website, insurers are looking to argue that you have violated some of these safety tips (even when some are not the law!):

  1. Avoid speeding and follow the posted speed limit.
  2. Always wear a helmet!
  3. Wear protective clothing such as road leathers, pants, closed-toe footwear, gloves, and face coverings.
  4. Leave plenty of space between yourself and other motorists on the roadway.
  5. Be a defensive rider and anticipate what other motorists may do on the roadway.
  6. Ride with a riding partner as they may be able to alert you to oncoming dangers or summon help quickly if you are injured.
  7. Ride sober.Rather Be Safe Than Sorry – National Safety Month
