Following an accident, you can have pain and worries. Often times you may miss work and lose sleep. You shouldn’t have to represent yourself against the insurance company. Make no mistake about it, the insurance company has skilled professionals, whose job it is to be adverse to your interests. They are not under the stress of a recent accident and they are keenly aware of what they can do to raise questions about your claim. Insurance adjusters make decisions about people they have never met, relating to pain and injury that they are not experiencing. Our job is to help them feel and understand what you are going through.

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration reported that approximately 88,000 motorcyclists suffered personal injury in traffic accidents in 2013 and total of 4,668 motorcycle riders were killed in traffic accidents. The inattentiveness of motorists and their failure to yield to motorcyclists put motorcycle riders at greater risk of being in a traffic accident than occupants of other types of vehicles. Statistics show that motorcyclists are five times more likely of being injured in an accident and are 26 times more likely to die.
