  • Other motorcycles
  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Excessive speeding

While West Virginia motorcycle accidents like these occur on all types of roadways, some roadways are more hazardous than others, due to their high-speed limits, high volume of traffic, and proximity to major cities, like Baltimore, Washington D.C, Charleston, and Huntington. The faster the speed and the more crowded the roadway, the more dangerous it is for a motorcyclist.

Common Accident Injuries

Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

Generally, motorcycle crashes result in much more severe injuries because the motorcyclist does not have the same amount of protection as the driver of a passenger vehicle. As a rule of thumb, whenever motorcycle riders collide with a passenger vehicle, the motorcyclist will be the one who suffers the most injuries.

What Compensation May I Be Eligible After Filing a Motorcycle Case

As a motorcycle accident victim, you are generally eligible to collect compensation for medical bills, lost income, the cost to repair or replace your bike, pain and suffering, and more.

However, you should know the insurance adjuster handling your claim will not have your best interest in mind. Although he or she may seem trustworthy and kind, they are employed by the insurance business to identify ways to pay you less than the amount you deserve for your claim.

To do this, they will often employ tactics, such as trying to convince you to accept a settlement only days after the accident or denying you money that you know you are entitled to receive. The adjuster also knows that there is a public bias against motorcyclists that can be exploited to limit or deny your claim by placing some or all of the blame on you.

This is why you must hire a personal injury lawyer who handles these motorcycle accident cases regularly. One who knows how to thwart the insurance adjuster’s tactics.

Our Case Results

Motorcycle Accident

A police cruiser was attempting to make a U-turn on a four-lane highway and collided with our client’s motorcycle. The trooper had failed to follow the rules of the road by making an unsafe or prohibited lane change and was found to have operated his vehicle in an “erratic, careless, or reckless” manner.

As a result of the trooper’s negligent driving, our client sustained bodily injuries which required emergency room treatment and subsequent physical therapy and prescription medication to recover from his injuries.

The Robinette Legal Group, PLLC was able to recover an ample settlement to cover our client’s medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Car Accident Injuries

Jeff Robinette was hired by a young woman who had sustained permanent injuries to her foot due to an auto collision. The insurance company offered such a small amount and dealt with her in such a dismissive manner that the treatment of her case amounted to bad faith on the insurance company’s part. Jeff was able to obtain a substantial settlement which allowed this young woman and her husband to pay medical bills, buy a car and a home, and start building a future together.

Drunk Driver

While driving his car, our client was hit by a drunk driver which injured his shoulder so severely that three surgeries were required. The insurance company haggled over the value of the claim, initially giving a low-ball offer. Jeff Robinette was able to force the insurance company to pay all insurance available for this claim.
