Do Motorcyclists Get Treated Unfairly by Insurance Companies?

As a law-abiding motorcycle rider, you likely carry a comprehensive insurance policy to protect both yourself and other motorists in the event of an accident or damage. You also likely expect your insurance company to be moral and fair when dealing with you.

But if you’re currently trying to file a claim and are coming up against some less-than-favorable behavior from the insurers, you may be wondering whether motorcyclists routinely get treated unfairly by insurance companies.

The dedicated motorcycle attorneys at the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg want to make sure you’re always treated fairly and that your rights are always respected. To help you better understand this issue, we’ve put together some important information below.

The Truth About Insurers and Motorcyclists

Unfortunately, motorcyclists tend to get a bad reputation among motorists. Even more unfortunately, insurance companies will use these negative and inaccurate stereotypes to their advantage.

Movies and television tend to portray motorcyclists as reckless, wild, negligent, and lawless. Insurance companies tend to prey on these inaccuracies in order to protect their bottom line when motorcyclists file claims for compensation.

For example, without evidence, they may suggest that the accident was the result of your own negligent behavior, such as speeding or improper passing. They do this in an attempt to mitigate their responsibility to pay you.
