Donna talks about her motorcycle accident and how we helped her when she came to us after going to another motorcycle lawyer and a personal injury lawyer. We were her third lawyers. We fixed her beautiful smile, and after Donna made the video, we settled her case and got her the money to buy a brand new constructed house!

We Know How to Pressure the Insurance Company to Pay

An insurance claims representative was delaying and didn’t want to pay the $100,000 policy of a car that made a left turn in front of our client’s motorcycle in Suffolk and tore the motorcyclist’s meniscus. We sent 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 from the Long Island Motorcycle Accident Attorneys, the claims representative left four voicemails in one day and offered the entire $100,000 policy one week later!

How Do You Know if a Lawyer Is a Long Island Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

Personal injury lawyers on Long Island may practice in many fields of law. Even other motorcycle lawyers on Long Island may practice in many fields of law.

Look at the lawyer’s website, see what they do, and how much information they have about motorcycle accidents. You’ll probably see just one page telling you that you could be seriously injured in a motorcycle accident!

Then take a good look at our websites, including the articles. Every page is about motorcycle accidents.

If you’re a motorcyclist on Long Island, Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, New York City, and upstate New York, you’ve seen 1-800-HURT-911® advertisements on TV (my photo in the left column is from TV). You’ve seen our advertising in motorcycle publications, including the back cover of NYS ABATE, the inside front cover of Long Island ABATE, and the inside front cover of Full Throttle Magazine. You probably read Long Island Motorcycle Accident Attorney Phil Franckel’s articles about motorcycle accidents and the law in ABATE and Full Throttle Magazine.

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 started the motorcycle awareness campaign BE AWARE MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE®. In fact, we’re the ONLY lawyers with a motorcycle awareness campaign in the Long Island / NY area!

You May Have a Serious Injury You Don’t Even Know You Have!

We’re experienced in looking for serious injuries. For instance, when a motorcyclist has symptoms from a concussion, you may not realize that your motorcycle accident caused the injury which creates the symptoms.

That’s what happened to one of our clients. He thought his only injury was a couple of broken ribs and was unhappy because the insurance company didn’t want to pay him $40,000. But when we spoke with him, we asked him some questions and found he had some of the symptoms of a concussion, so we sent him to an expert for a report.

The insurance company offered us only $150,000, which we declined. We took his case to trial and got a jury verdict of $1,000,000, which the insurance company paid.

Other injuries like road rash can be worth a lot of money, even if you don’t think it’s bad.

Sometimes, Insurance Companies 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! We are one of the few motorcycle lawyers outside of an insurance company who knows how to find umbrella insurance. Finding insurance on the car is easy. It’s on the DMV printout but not umbrella insurance.

In the case below, my client was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a car. We 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 on 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 that 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, including a 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.
