Motorcycle Law Career Highlights

We recently won a case for a motorcycle club member who was hit on his bike by a bad driver who was turning left. Our client was injured, laying on the hot summer asphalt when he was approached by the police in a manner as though the accident was the rider’s fault. The at fault driver refused to provide their insurance coverage to the police and the officer did not press for the information.

The rider came to us and we filed a lawsuit immediately. The result: The rider got a new and better bike, all his medical bills paid and extra money for all the hassle he went through because of the bad driver. If he had not hired Idaho Biker Lawyer, he would likely have received nothing.

In another recent motorcycle case we helped an injured rider to recover $1.25 million. A negligent driver pulled out from a stop sign and struck our client. When the rider hired us, we immediately filed the lawsuit.

Had this client not hired Idaho Biker Lawyer, he would never have uncovered the extra $1,000,000.00 in coverage that we helped him obtain. Our lawyers find the deep pockets of money and assets to help our clients recover the maximum for their injuries and damages. Those deep pockets and assets are often hidden and difficult to find.

Another motorcycle client we helped had $200,000.00 in medical bills as a result of his injuries. The driver who hit him was underinsured and the total insurance coverage was only $50,000.00. Our lawyer was able to negotiate the biker’s medical bills and, after paying the new reduced bills, the rider was able to walk away from the settlement with $5,000.00 in his pocket.
