Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims
Motorcycle insurance is mandatory in North Carolina
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, your first priority is recovering from your injuries to the fullest extent possible and as quickly as possible. While you many think that just because you have motorcycle insurance (which is mandatory in North Carolina) that the insurance company will simply cut you a check for your injuries, 20 years of experience tells us otherwise.
Many insurance companies are for-profit businesses. The less they pay you, the more they keep. Fair or not, the insurance company may try to place blame on the motorcycle rider in an accident in an effort to pay as little as possible.
That is among the many reasons it is important to talk to a motorcycle accident lawyer in North Carolina if you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident. First, we can connect with resources and use our experience to try to make sure your interests are fully protected when making an injury claim. Just as importantly, we can help guide you through the insurance company’s “recorded statement” that they may claim they are required to take from you. What you say and how you say it on a recorded statement can come back to haunt you later if the insurance company tries to deny or minimize your compensation.

It is the law in North Carolina to carry motorcycle insurance to try to protect yourself against the consequences of a motorcycle crash. At the very least, you must have minimum personal injury liability as well as the minimum amount of property damage liability in the event of the risk of an accident. In our estimation, the biggest risk you may face in attempting to recover damages is trusting the insurance company.
Insurance companies (and others) behaving badly
We have seen so much bad behavior from some insurance companies, we produced a free booklet for clients entitled Insurance Companies (and others) Behaving Badly. This eye-opening booklet features actual client examples that illustrate why we don’t trust many insurance companies, and why we don’t think you should either.
