MLG lawyers recently procured $100,000 for clients who were cut-off the road by an automobile driver. In addition, MLG lawyers assisted our clients in obtaining additional money for the damaged motorcycle. In December 2019, MLG’s clients were coming back from an early dinner in Lakewood Ranch on their motorcycle. Our clients were cut-off the road by a driver pulling out of a shopping center who failed to pay attention to the approaching motorcycle. As a result of being cut-off, the MLG clients suffered rib and elbow damage. They immediately called us. By being experienced in representing people involved in motorcycle accidents, we were able to get our clients compensation for their injuries and damaged motorcycle within 90 days of the accident. Our lawyers do not just push paper; they get results.
If you find yourself involved in a motorcycle accident, you should immediately do a few things: obviously, make sure your injuries are being treated, take pictures of the scene, get copies of the police report, and call an experienced lawyer. And, never give a follow-up “recorded statement” to an insurance adjuster or agent. Even more importantly, never hire a lawyer because a tow-truck driver or some “investigator” hands you a lawyer’s business card or because of some smiling face on a billboard. Getting compensated for being injured in a motorcycle accident involves legal expertise and there will be an insurance company and its lawyers on the other side trying to take advantage of you. And, not all lawyers are the same. If those billboard and T.V. lawyers were really successful, they wouldn’t have to be out there tooting their own horns and paying for ads to get clients. Many times, those personal injury lawyers/mills settle cases for less than what the case is worth because their advertising budgets need to be fed.
Clients come to MLG lawyers because we are experienced and well known. Client’s know that our lawyers’ get results. We’ve been getting fast results for clients for over thirty (30) years here in Bradenton. In addition, some of us at Mackey Law Group are motorcycle riders ourselves.
