No matter how cautious motorcycle operators are — and they are some of the most careful motorists on the road — no amount of precaution can prevent every accident. When motorcyclists are involved in accidents, their vulnerability often results in serious or even catastrophic injuries. If the accident was caused by someone else's negligence, you should not have to shoulder the financial burden of medical bills, lost wages and long-term rehabilitation.
At Hawkins Law Firm in Tulsa, we advocate aggressively for people who are seriously injured in motorcycle accidents that were caused by someone else. If a family member was killed in a motorcycle accident that resulted from someone else's negligence, we will seek the full amount of compensation that your family deserves in a wrongful death lawsuit.
We work with clients throughout northeastern Oklahoma. If your injuries have limited your mobility, we will come to you for a free initial consultation. Remember, you only pay attorney fees if we obtain a recovery for you.
Insurance companies are notorious for shifting blame in injured biker cases in attempt to deny claims. Attorney Phillip C. Hawkins is familiar with the strategies these insurance providers use to boost their own bottom line because he represented insurance companies in personal injury cases earlier in his career. Now, Mr. Hawkins uses those insights to build strong cases that frequently are resolved without the need to go to trial.
It is important to contact our office as soon as possible after your accident, but not to rush to settle with an insurance provider. An insurance company may pressure you to accept a settlement, but it is almost always significantly less than what you will be able to collect with the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
It's also important to allow time to get a full medical diagnosis and an accurate sense of whether any long-term rehabilitation will be necessary. If you accept an insurance company's settlement before discovering that extensive rehabilitation is necessary, it may be too late to recover compensation for that additional cost.Put an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer in Your Corner
