Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits and Underinsured Motorists

Given the severity of most of my client’s injuries, once they hire us as their motorcycle accident attorney, they expect our office to do everything we can to recover the maximum settlement possible. As such, when the other party’s insurance carrier is being unreasonable in a motorcycle accident settlement, we file a motorcycle accident lawsuit against the person who caused the accident and also against your own insurance company – for underinsured motorist benefits. Recently in Allegheny County, in the case of Stepanovich v. McGraw and State Farm Insurance Company, this is exactly what happened.

Social Media and Motorcycle Accident Cases

It’s amazing how in the last five years, much of the initial communication to my Pennsylvania motorcycle accident law firm, from my clients, is taking place via social media and e-mail. Every time we get calls from potential clients for motorcycle accident cases we tell them to strictly use email from their computers to communicate with us and to stay off social media sites. Most of my clients suffer severe injuries, and a large percentage use their computers to document and memorialize their injuries, and also to locate a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident lawyer, or a New Jersey motorcycle attorney. As a motorcycle accident lawyer, I warn my clients about the dangers of social media use before motorcycle accident cases are resolved, because the law firms that are hired by the … [Read more...]
