Fresno Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents can cause especially severe injuries compared to other types of accidents because motorcyclists are not afforded the protection of a frame and chassis around them like they are in a car or truck. These severe injuries can lead to massive medical bills, so it’s vital to have experienced motorcycle accident attorneys like the lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen by your side if you want insurance companies to provide you with fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, damage to your motorcycle and more.
Insurance adjusters won’t respect you enough to give you fair compensation offers if you don’t have a lawyer, and they’re trained to manipulate you into accidentally admitting your own fault in an accident, even if you weren’t at fault! It’s dangerous for you to talk to the insurance companies after a motorcycle accident. You need a lawyer to talk to the insurance companies for you.
