Is there a different approach an attorney should take with a motorcycle accident claim vs. an automobile accident claim?
At Willis, Willis & Rizzi in Akron, Ohio our approach to representing victims involved in motorcycle accidents is different than our approach for an automobile accident claim. And when you are looking for a personal injury lawyer to represent you when you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to select a personal injury firm that understands what you are going through, and how to approach representing your interests against the insurance companies who will want to change the narrative of your case.
When an individual is involved in a motorcycle accident the level of injuries involved is typically far greater than an automobile accident. When you are in a car you are far more protected due to seat belts and air bags than when you are on a motorcycle. Injuries involved in a motorcycle accident are typically due to putting the motorcycle down on the pavement, physically coming in contact with the other vehicle, or oftentimes being ejected from the motorcycle.
Are there challenges in dealing with insurance companies and motorcycle accident claims?
In our experience in handling many motorcycle accident injury claims we have recognized that there is still a stereotype involved with motorcycle drivers. Often insurance companies will suggest that since our client is on a motorcycle, they must be part of an outlaw motorcycle gang, or they were a daredevil on the bike and attempting tricks on the road and speeding.
When you have a motorcycle injury claim it’s important to find a good personal injury attorney who can be your advocate and dispel the perception that the insurance company will want to portray, that you are a reckless operator simply because you were driving your bike through the Metro Park on a sunny summer day.
Why should I hire Willis, Willis & Rizzi as my attorneys to handle my motorcycle accident claim?
When you are injured in a motorcycle accident it’s imperative to hire a personal injury firm that realizes motorcycle accidents are not your typical rear-ended motor vehicle collisions. These are serious collisions with serious injuries, where the insurance company is hoping to portray you in a negative way, and to make the jury believe that since you ride a motorcycle, you must have been reckless and that was the cause of the accident, not their insured.
We feel it’s critical to have a personal injury firm on your side that can get in at the beginning stages of your case and change the narrative that the insurance companies will certainly want to portray.

What we can tell you is that when dealing with motorcycle accident insurance claims whether it involves minor injuries or more severe injuries it’s imperative that you obtain a personal injury lawyer who can immediately step in and change the narrative.
