Careless vehicle drivers hit and injure motorcycle riders every day in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. However, their insurance companies often try to blame motorcyclists for these accidents. Why? They want to avoid paying claims or to get away with paying as little as they can. This is why motorcyclists need to protect their rights.
If a car or truck driver hit you while you were on a motorcycle, Gruber Law Offices, LLC, will put our skill, experience and resources on your side. You can count on us to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Resources
Wisconsin law limits the time you have to file a claim for motorcycle crash injuries. You need to consult with a Milwaukee motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. BEFORE you talk with the insurance company or accept a settlement offer, call Gruber Law Offices. Our consultations are always free and carry no obligation. You will pay no fees unless we obtain a recovery for you.
Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Our lawyers at Gruber Law Offices have seen how motor vehicle drivers’ failure to detect and recognize motorcyclists causes accidents. Often, drivers simply refuse to respect motorcyclists’ right to share the road.
The most common types of motorcycle accidents our lawyers handle involve motor vehicle drivers who:
These are all acts of negligence. Often, drivers make careless and reckless choices that cause these crashes such as driving while drunk or while distracted by texting or talking on a cell phone. If a car driver who was engaged in any of these acts caused your Milwaukee motorcycle crash, you would have the right to bring a claim for compensation.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Our lawyers realize the severity of the injuries that motorcycle riders – and their families – must cope with after an accident. Gruber Law Offices helps motorcyclists who suffer from:
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Multiple broke bones
- Loss of limbs
- Chest and shoulder injuries
- Eye injuries
- Burns, including friction burns or “road rash”
- Scarring and disfigurement.
If you wear a helmet, you greatly reduce your risk of a concussion or more serious form of traumatic brain injury. That is why we encourage motorcycle riders to always wear helmets. However, at Gruber Law Offices, we respect motorcyclists’ right to ride without a helmet (unless you are under age 18 or carrying an instructional permit). We will stick up for you and fight an insurance company’s attempt to use your lack of a helmet against you.
Motorcycle Accident Insurance Issues
Motor vehicle drivers in Wisconsin must carry minimum amounts of liability insurance coverage. So, if you are a in crash that a car or truck driver causes, you should be able to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Our lawyers will help you to pursue that claim.
However, what happens if the driver has no insurance or has insurance that fails to cover all of your medical bills and other losses? Our firm can explore all of your options, which could include filing a claim through with your own insurer. For instance, medical payments and/or uninsured motorist / underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage may be available to you.
Whether you are dealing with the other driver’s insurance company or your own insurer, Gruber Law Offices will make sure to protect your rights. Our representation will be especially important if the insurer tries to argue that you were responsible. Here’s why:
We know how insurance companies try to use this law against motorcycle riders. We will not let the insurance company get away with putting undeserved blame on you for your motorcycle crash.
Motorcycle Accident Checklist
If you were recently in a motorcycle accident in Milwaukee or elsewhere in Wisconsin, you should take the following steps:
Wisconsin generally requires you to file a personal injury claim within three years after the date of an accident. If you lose a loved one in a crash, you have three years from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Your lawyer will need time to properly prepare a claim for filing. So, do not delay getting help after a motorcycle crash. Connect with Gruber Law Offices today.
Why Do You Need a Milwaukee Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
No law requires you to hire a lawyer after a motorcycle accident. However, if you do not get legal help, you may miss out on a much better result in your case. In fact, an Insurance Research Council study found that accident victims represented by a lawyer receive insurance payouts that are, on average, 3.5 times higher than the payouts received by those who pursue claims without a lawyer.
At Gruber Law Offices, our lawyers will know how to investigate your motorcycle crash and sort through the details. We will consult with experts in accident reconstruction, life-care planning and other fields in order to determine why your crash happened and how much you deserve in compensation. We will present a solid claim to the insurance company and, if necessary, we’ll fight for you in court. In short, we will make every effort to seek the maximum amount owed to you.
Why take on insurance companies on your own when you can have a team of 16 attorneys and 100 support staff members on your side who will be dedicated to protecting you and your right to a recovery?
