Toledo OH Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
When motorcyclists are hurt on the road, we take action
Motorcycles are popular in Toledo, and when the weather is nice, you can see motorcyclists traveling on I-75 or cruising down Bancroft Street. But an accident can happen in an instant and leave motorcyclists seriously hurt. If you’ve been injured in a Toledo motorcycle accident, call Gervelis Law Firm.
Too many drivers on the roads of Toledo think of motorcycles as nothing more than a nuisance and don’t drive safely near them. Sometimes, they aren’t paying attention and don’t see motorcycles at all. These are examples of negligence by other drivers, and negligence can cause an accident that leaves motorcyclists injured and in need of medical treatment.
Motorcyclists have very little protection in a crash. The injuries they suffer can be serious – examples include road rash, broken bones and internal injuries. Some injuries are catastrophic – such as traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injuries. Those motorcyclists who are able to recover from their injuries may be unable to work for weeks or months.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve suffered a motorcycle accident injury. But too many still hold on to stereotypes about people who ride motorcycles. They have a view of motorcyclists as being reckless and irresponsible. So when there’s a crash, the insurance company thinks the motorcyclist must have been to blame somehow.
But we know that the majority of motorcyclists are responsible and safety conscious. We help injured motorcyclists fight back against these stereotypes that insurance companies use to try to pay them as little as possible.
Focused on results
We start by getting the facts. Our legal team investigates the crash – reviewing medical records and accident reports, and interviewing witnesses to look for signs of negligence. For example, was another driver speeding, distracted, using alcohol or driving recklessly? When we find evidence a driver was negligent, we work to hold that driver accountable.
Our attorneys also determine the total amount of damages you have suffered. This can include the cost of past and future medical treatment related to your injuries, lost wages while you are unable to work, and other damages such as pain and suffering. We’re not interested in making a quick and cheap settlement with the insurance company. We fight to get a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
