It is the responsibility of other drivers on the road to watch for motorcyclists and make an effort to uphold their safety. Unfortunately, not all drivers fulfill their duty of care to motorcyclists, and many accidents occur every year as a result. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, more than 2,700 motorcycles were involved in crashes in the state in 2018 alone.
If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to a monetary award from the at-fault driver and their insurance company. A Monroeville motorcycle accident lawyer from Berger and Green can help you build your case and pursue damages. We will protect your rights and help you get the money you deserve.
At Berger and Green, we never charge a consultation fee to accident victims. In fact, you do not pay us at all until we win your case. There is no cost or obligation when speaking with us about your motorcycle accident. Call Berger and Green today at (412) 661-1400.
We Will Build a Compelling Motorcycle Accident Claim on Your Behalf
When you trust Berger and Green with your Monroeville motorcycle accident claim, our job is to identify the at-fault party, gather evidence proving their liability, and pursue compensation from them and their insurance company. Once we evaluate your case and determine you are eligible for damages, we will get to work right away.
We will build your case by doing the following and more:
We will collect evidence to show that the other driver was at fault for your Monroeville motorcycle accident. This proof may show that the driver:
- Violated a traffic law
- Engaged in negligent behavior
- Failed to uphold their duty of care to you as a motorcyclist
- Drove while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
We can also look at cell phone records and other evidence to determine if distracted driving played a role in the accident.
Even if the accident was partly your fault, you may still be able to collect compensation under Pennsylvania Code § 7102. Your compensation level may be proportionally reduced based on your level of fault, but the Monroeville motorcycle accident lawyers at Berger and Green will work to get you a fair settlement.
Taking On the Insurance Company
No matter who was at fault for the accident, your compensation will most likely come from one or more insurance companies. In order to collect a fair settlement, you have to negotiate with insurance company representatives—or have someone on your team who can.
The insurance companies spend a lot of money on infrastructure that allows them to spend as little money as possible on claim payouts. It might seem counterintuitive, but insurance companies save millions of dollars every year by hiring claims examiners, adjusters, and negotiators whose job is to keep their payouts as low as possible.
At Berger and Green, our personal injury lawyers understand how the insurance companies work, including every tactic they use to pay injured victims less than they need to cover their losses. We will not let them get away with saddling you with a sub-par settlement. If they do not agree to compensate you fairly, we will not hesitate to take them to court. We will do whatever possible to make sure you get every dollar you deserve.
Handling Paperwork and Other Minutiae
A motorcycle accident can leave you with devastating injuries, causing months or more of crippling physical pain and emotional distress. Here at Berger and Green, we believe you should spend this time focusing on recovering and getting your life back, which means you should not be stressing over financial issues or paperwork.
We will handle the entire legal process on your behalf so that you can focus your efforts elsewhere. If bill collectors are hounding you about payment, we will send out cease-and-desist orders to put a stop to the harassment until your settlement comes in. If you have any questions or concerns about your case along the way, our team is always available and eager to hear from you.
