Parkersburg, WV Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Call Mike Slocumb Law Firm when you've been injured
Motorcycles are popular in Parkersburg, WV and throughout the state but motorcyclists are vulnerable out on the road. When another driver is negligent, there can be a crash that leaves motorcyclists seriously injured. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm fight for their rights.
The truth is that many drivers don't act responsibly around motorcycles. They treat them differently than other vehicles. They think motorcycles are annoying and try to drive around them. Some don't even notice motorcycles at all. Too often, the result is an accident that leaves someone hurt.
Motorcyclists have very little protection during a collision. Common motorcycle accident injuries include head and brain injuries, broken bones, internal injuries, biker's arm and road rash. Injured motorcyclists may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take months or years. Some injured motorcyclists never fully recover.
Attorneys who stand up to the insurance companies
Drivers aren't the ones with outdated attitudes about motorcycles. Insurance companies seem to think that all motorcyclists are thrill-seekers who take unnecessary risks. The way they see it, if you're a motorcyclist who was injured, the accident must have been your fault somehow. So they will try to pay you as little as possible.
Our attorneys know the majority of motorcyclists are very responsible out on the road. We fight the insurance companies to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve. Insurances companies use lots of different tactics to try to pay you less. We know the games they play and help you fight back.
