When the weather is warm in Wisconsin, the motorcyclists hit the road. From motorcycle rallies to riding for leisure, they are everywhere. This is something that motorists need to be aware of since motorists can be the cause of motorcycle accidents. However, mechanical defects and road conditions can be as well. If this is something that has happened to you or a loved one, you need an Oshkosh motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you recover damages from the responsible party.
At the Harnitz Law Office, LLC, we take the time to understand your case so that we can build a strong claim for you. Motorcycle accidents can have lifelong consequences and we want to make sure you don’t have to worry about the financial aspects of the accident by fighting for your right to compensation.
Compassionate Personal Injury Representation
There are many factors that can contribute to a motorcycle accident. Those factors include:
- Negligent motorists that cutoff or collide with motorcyclists
- Obstacles in the roadway
- Poor road conditions due to poor maintenance or inadequate warnings
- Poor road design
- Defective motorcycle parts
Motorcyclists aren’t given the same protections as motorists. They are fully exposed, which is why the injuries tend to be very serious. Unfortunately, death frequently occurs in these accidents. Because of this, families have the right to seek compensation for loss of companionship and support, as well as any medical expenses or funeral expenses that may be incurred.
No Case Too Complicated
The insurance companies are not interested in settling for a meaningful dollar amount. Although motorcyclists are required to carry insurance, that fact doesn’t guarantee that the insurance companies are going to pay the right amount. In fact, the insurance companies aren’t always going to act in good faith and pay in a timely manner like they are supposed to. This strengthens the reasoning behind why you need an Oshkosh motorcycle accident lawyer advocating for you every step of the way.
Keep in mind that the insurance companies want to protect their bottom lines as much as possible, so that means your attorney will need to heavily negotiate a settlement that will cover your expenses. The good news is that our experience makes it possible to achieve a settlement and avoid trial. If a meaningful settlement can’t be reached, then we can take the case to trial for you.
