Tampa Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
The risk of being involved in an accident on the road is compounded if you are on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, along with a compounded risk of being involved in an accident comes an increase in the severity of injuries compared to those who are car accidents. That harsh reality is made all the more distressing by the fact that insurance companies generally seem to exhibit a bias towards motorcyclists and have less compassion or tolerance for bike riders who are involved in accidents. At The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group we not only understand that bias exists; we fight for the rights of motorcyclists despite the unfair bias they face. Contact our Tampa motorcycle accident lawyers for more information.
Thousands of motorcyclists are killed or injured each year, 82,000 were injured in 2010. Because a motorcyclist does not have the added protection of a seatbelt, roof or the benefits of the side of a vehicle, they are naturally more susceptible to injury or death in the event of a crash. In fact, a motorcyclist is 35 times more likely to be involved in an accident over car drivers. There are many reasons why; but indifference and lack of safety on the part of car drivers towards those on motorcycles is a major reason. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you should first consult your insurance company then call The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group to ensure our professionals can help secure your rights.
Even if an insurance company offers a compensation package, you should have a qualified lawyer analyze it to be sure you are getting not only what you deserve, but what you may need. Oftentimes after an accident, there are staggering medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy and countless other financial issues that may arise. You should not decide on your own whether a settlement offered from an insurance company is adequate or fair. Our experts have been in the business of keeping insurance companies from undercutting or unfairly settling for less than what victims need to recover from their injuries and trauma. Whether it is through expert negotiating on your behalf or if we need to litigate and present your case in court, our attorneys go the distance for those involved in a motorcycle accident. We will line up witnesses, secure the scene for evidence, secure experts needed to prove your case and properly document and photograph damages and injuries to conclusively present the full scope of your case and do everything in our power to secure a successful outcome.
