Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Roanoke

A legal professional who aggressively fights for riders' rights

Unlike auto accidents, people injured in motorcycle accidents regularly sustain serious injuries. That's because motorcyclists have less protection than motorists. But perhaps worst of all, many people automatically blame motorcyclists for causing accidents when the other driver is at fault. An insurance company may use this unfair bias against motorcyclists to deny a claim or keep payments to an absolute minimum.

We understand the pressures motorcyclists face in Virginia. That's why we work so hard for them. We strongly believe injury victims should not have to pay for someone else's mistakes. If someone caused your motorcycle crash, he should be held responsible for his actions.

Virginia motorcycle accident lawyer William P. Davis and his colleagues at Davis, Davis, Davis & Davis, PC, have dedicated their careers to fighting for the rights of injury victims. We understand the state's unique legal system and know how to build successful legal cases.

Who determines how much money I will receive for my accident?

In most cases, the insurance company for the other driver will determine how much money you will receive for your accident. Insurance companies base their decision on a wide range of factors, including the police report for your accident and statements made by you, the other driver or witnesses. Don't wait for the insurance company to dictate what happens to you. Contact us. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies and obtain the money you rightfully deserve.

What should I do if an insurance company makes me an offer after my accident?

The insurance company for the other driver may contact you soon after your accident. A claims adjuster may make an offer that seems reasonable. Don't be so sure. In most cases, most insurance companies offer injury victims money before the full extent of the accident is known. That's why it's critical you contact us. We work tirelessly with injury victims to make sure they receive enough money to cover the true cost of their accident. It's important to think long term. Will your accident affect you months or years from now? Will you need long-term medical care or physical therapy? Will you be unable to work for weeks or months or even longer? All these important questions need to be considered - and we can help answer them.

Can I file a motorcycle accident lawsuit to get more money?

Yes. While most cases settle out of court, in some cases, filing a lawsuit might be the best way to get the money you deserve, especially if the insurance company for the other driver made a low-ball offer that doesn't cover the true cost of your accident. Remember, you didn't do anything wrong. You shouldn't have to pay for someone else's mistakes.
