We know how to pressure the insurance company to pay

An insurance claims representative was delaying and didn’t want to pay the policy for a car that turned left in front of our client’s motorcycle in Suffolk.  We sent what we think is our nice letter explaining that we will go after their insured’s assets (she called it a “nasty terrorist” letter but we have a much nastier letter we send if the nice letter doesn’t work).

After receiving our “nasty terrorist” letter, the claims representative left four voicemails in one day and offered the entire $100,000 policy one week later!  Listen to short 10 sec clips from the first two voicemails:

Other motorcycle lawyers may practice in many fields of law.  Look at their website, see what they do and how much information they have about motorcycle accidents.  Then take a good look at our website including the articles.  Everything here is about motorcycle accidents.

We’re different in every way, from how we prepare your case (one example is how we prepare you for your deposition) to letting you call us (not a paralegal or secretary) 7 days/nights with your questions!

You may have a serious injury which you don’t realize is serious or don’t even know you have!  We’re experienced in looking for serious injuries.  For instance, when a motorcyclist has symptoms from a concussion, it’s likely that you won’t realize that your motorcycle accident caused the injury which creates the symptoms.  This one injury can be worth $millions.  Other injuries like road rash can be worth a lot of money even if you don’t think it’s bad.

Sometimes, insurance companies try to hide the existence of $million umbrella insurance – maybe it’s just a mistake but it sure looks like they’re trying to hide it and they have a big incentive!  I am one of the few people outside of an insurance company who knows how to find it.  Finding car insurance is easy.  In the case below, my client was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a car.  I have an account with DMV and entered the car’s plate in the DMV computer system which found a $300,000 insurance policy with GEICO, but umbrella insurance is not listed in the DMV computer.  Umbrella insurance is only listed in a computer database  accessible only to insurance companies.  See what we found an insurance company hiding.

Don’t let an insurance company lie to you!

Getting a lot of money for your injuries is a difficult job which requires substantial knowledge and organization.  We use medical doctors to summarize all of your medical records.  We then present to the insurance company a medical summary; medical chronology of injuries, symptoms; treatment, treatment plan; pain chart; pain medication chart; and a copy of your medical records.  Where appropriate, we also use medical illustrations; videos of your CT & MRI; and video animations of your injuries.

Call us now (even nights & weekends) at 1-800-HURT-911

We provide personal service.   You can call Phil Franckel on my personal phone number days/nights/weekends with any question. In fact, you can reach me right now on my personal phone number by calling 1-800-HURT-911.

 

If you are a motorcyclist on Long Island, Suffolk, Nassau, Queens or the New York area, you probably have seen our advertisements on TV (my photo in the left column is from TV) and in motorcycle publications including the back cover of ABATE and the inside front cover of FT for motorcycle accidents.

Many personal injury lawyers do not like motorcycle cases because of the complexity of the unique legal issues involving motorcycle accidents, especially the resolution of liens for medical treatment, but we prefer motorcycle accident cases and the unique issues with motorcycle accidents.

Because most motorcyclists are injured by a driver who just didn’t see the motorcycle, we’re the ONLY lawyers with a motorcycle awareness campaign in the Long Island / NY area with our brand “BE AWARE MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE”®!
