Why should I hire a motorcycle accident lawyer?
With Longo, there are no gimmicks and no games – just results.
When you’re recovering from a bad motorcycle accident, it’s not fair that you are also expected to become an expert on insurance law and a skilled negotiator overnight.
If you want to get all the money you need to recover from the accident – and maintain your recovery for years to come – you’ll have to file an injury claim and beat the insurance adjusters and their corporate lawyers at a high-stakes game of hardball.
Or you could hire a lawyer.
Save yourself the hassle. Put your attention on your health and restore the life you built by hiring Colorado Springs motorcycle accident lawyer Stephen Longo. He has been helping injured bikers in the Front Range region for more than 10 years. He knows how to find the evidence and build cases that the insurance companies won’t be able to dismiss.
How a lawyer can help your accident claim
There are many benefits to having a lawyer represent your insurance claim. By hiring a lawyer, you will have someone to:
- Handle the insurance company's questions.
- Get necessary paperwork and documents to adjusters.
- Investigate the motorcycle accident for details and evidence that others might miss.
- Interview witnesses and, if necessary, bring in expert testimony.
- Calculate how much money you will need years from now, and beyond, to maintain your recovery.
- Make convincing legally-sound, evidence-based arguments for full compensation.
- Drag the insurance companies to court if they refuse to offer a full and substantial settlement for your injuries and losses.
- Get you more money for your claim than you could likely secure on your own.
Choose the lawyer Colorado Springs trusts
The many ways a lawyer can help you with your insurance claim should hopefully lead towards one point – maximum compensation for your injuries and lost or damaged property.
Studies have found that you are far more likely to collect more money for your injuries and property damage if you hire a lawyer. A study by the Insurance Research Council found that, on average, insurance company payouts were 3.5 times higher for people who hired lawyers compared to those who did not.
Using this study’s logic means that, for example, if you broke your leg bone in a motorcycle accident that was someone else’s fault, the insurance company might offer you $10,000, but an attorney could negotiate that up to $35,000.
How much does a lawyer cost?
Motorcycle accident lawyers, including attorney Longo, don’t typically charge their clients out-of-pocket legal fees. They often work on contingency.
Working for a contingency fee means your attorney gets paid only when he wins. The fee is calculated into your final verdict or settlement and is typically about 30 percent to 33 percent of the full compensation.
Let’s stick with the same $35,000 settlement example from above. In this situation, the lawyer’s fee would be around $11,600. That leaves you with over a $23,000 settlement – more than two-times the money normally offered by an insurance company.
Available on your terms – focused on your results
You must get your claim right the first time. There is no going back to the insurance company and asking for money years from now when your accident-related injuries flare up again.
Attorney Longo fights hard for bikers after a crash. When he takes you on as a client, you can expect him to conduct a thorough investigation of the crash, collect evidence that other lawyers sometimes miss, and hammer away at the insurance companies until they make you a substantial settlement offer.
