I got into a motorcycle accident in Bucks County. While my only injury was road rash, it’s a severe case. Can road rash be considered a serious injury?

Yes.

Though the injury is often classified as a “minor injury” you know that the pain, scarring and loss of tissue is anything but minor. Can a road rash be minor? Yes. But when dealing with road rash caused by a motorcycle crash the injury is usually serious.

Fighting the Good Fight

As with many injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident, it can be difficult to get the insurance company to ante up. After all, they are in the business of making money. To do so, they need to undervalue as many claims as they can, using every trick or trap they can to get you to settle for less than your case is worth.

An insurance agent or adjustor may appear to be concerned about you, your injuries and your family. They may ask questions about the accident in a friendly, easy going way. However, any answers you give can be used against you. Our attorneys often talk to clients who have not only chatted with the insurance company, but who have struck a deal. Only after doing so do, after signing on the dotted line, do they realize that the cost of their accident is much higher than they thought it would be.

The bad news for them is that when they signed an offer for compensation, when they admitted fault during a conversation, they seriously limited their ability to get the compensation they need.

The attorneys at the Bucks County personal injury law firm of Cordisco & Saile ask that you never speak with or accept an offer from an insurance agent.
