Even Motorcycle Accident Victims Who Do Everything Right May Struggle to Get a Fair Outcome

California can be a dangerous place for motorcyclists, especially on congested freeways like Highway 91, Interstate 10, and the Ventura Freeway. Motorcycle accidents are common, and victims are often less interested in a fight and more interested in just filing the paperwork and getting it over with. Unfortunately, no matter how honest, straightforward, and reasonable you are when dealing with the negligent driver’s insurance company, you may be met with some unreasonable struggles during the claims process.

You’re Doing Everything Right After Your Motorcycle Accident—What’s Going Wrong?

Even though you’re not asking for anything extravagant from the driver who hit you, it’s not uncommon to run into problems with the insurance company. No matter how reasonable you feel you are during the claims process or how clear the driver’s fault in the accident, you still may face:

  • Denials and delays with your claim against the driver’s insurance company.
  • Settlement offers that are too low to cover your expenses after the accident.
  • Your words and statements being used against you to dismiss your claims.
  • Pressure to give a recorded statement, admit fault, or otherwise jeopardize your own claim.
  • Claims that your injuries are not as bad as you say.
  • Accusations of fault in the accident.

Even in seemingly straightforward claims from motorcycle accident victims, these problems can sneak up and make it extremely difficult for families in Santa Monica to get the financial compensation they deserve on their own.
