When Recreation Turns To Catastrophe

Motorcycles are a primary form of transportation for many individuals during the summer in southern Indiana and the Louisville area. For others, riding a bike in the evening or on the weekend is an enjoyable pastime. Similarly, many in the area enjoy riding ATVs. Unfortunately, when involved in an accident, motorcyclists and ATV riders can be particularly vulnerable to injury.

Countering The Arguments Used To Reduce Or Deny Your Claim

Motorcyclist and ATV-related injuries are frequently significant. The insurance companies and members of the community often jump to the conclusion that the rider was at fault. Our founding lawyer, Ken Doane, has a background in representing the insurance companies and is well-versed in the strategies that insurance providers use to minimize or deny claims. He draws on that past experience to relentlessly fight for the rights of our clients.

Common tactics that the insurance companies and other drivers use to deny or reduce claims in motorcycle accident cases include:

  • Blaming the motorcyclist or ATV rider for the accident, including claims of recklessness
  • Claiming that it was not possible to see the motorcycle or ATV
  • Asserting that the rider was operating the vehicle in violation of safety laws

The truth of the matter is that drivers frequently fail to see the motorcycle or ATV out of negligence. Failure to see may involve inattentiveness in some cases. In other situations, a driver may lack respect for riders and simply fail to look for the vehicle. Drivers can misjudge the distance of an approaching bike and fail to yield. At Doane Law Office, LLC, we take on the cause of our clients who have suffered injury due to the negligence of another party.

If you or a family member has suffered injury in a motorcycle accident, do not rely on the insurance company to give you the respect that you deserve. We are committed to diligently preparing your claim to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.
