Motorcyclists often have an uphill battle convincing insurance companies that the other driver was at fault for causing a motorcycle versus car accident. The at-fault driver often says that the motorcycle “came out of nowhere” and sometimes, police reports do not clearly or accurately show what happened.
If your motorcycle insurance claim is denied, that is not the end of the road. We have successfully represented people whose claims were initially denied. Once we are hired, we will investigate the case fully and make sure that the insurance company has all the facts and is comparing apples to apples.
If the insurance company continues to deny your claim, you must make a decision whether to file a lawsuit in order to pursue your claim. In Louisiana, victims of a motorcycle accident have one year within which to file a lawsuit. If they don’t, their claims vanish as if the accident never occurred and they cannot seek compensation.
