Do you pay attention to bumper stickers when you’re sitting in Akron, Ohio traffic? If you do, you may have noticed an increase in stickers requesting that you “watch out for motorcycles” and “look twice for motorcycles,” lately. Wondering why? There are actually several reasons. But, the most important one is spelled out for you right on the sticker: “because there are no fender benders.” Motorcycle accidents are devastating—for drivers, passengers, and loved ones. The lawyers at Eshelman Legal Group—based in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, but serving all of Summit County and Northeast Ohio—have made it their goal to advocate for motorcycle accident victims and their loved ones.
Would it surprise you to know that approximately 13 percent of all vehicle-related fatalities are motorcyclists, despite only about 3 percent of registered vehicles being motorcycles? It’s a sad, but sound, statistic because, as the sticker states, for riders, there are no fender benders. It’s imperative that the operators of passenger vehicles be attentive, but when they’re not, it’s a comfort to know that motorcycle accident victims have a local law firm to whom they can turn to “make things right.”
Many people never consider the possibility of hiring an experienced attorney to help them after an accident, but the team at Eshelman Legal Group would encourage you to contact them for a free, no obligation consultation. Insurance companies want to wrap everything up as quickly and inexpensively as possible, but in the event of serious injury or fatality, what they are offering simply is not enough. Will an insurance settlement cover lost wages? Vehicle repair or replacement? All of the medical costs or just a few? In the case of wrongful death, are funeral costs covered? Those are just a few of the dozens of questions that will arise.
You’ll find yourself mired down by an entirely new set of questions if your accident was caused by an uninsured or underinsured individual. While you may have purchased coverage through your insurance company for just such a case, it still may not be enough, and you’re right back to those original questions. Eshelman Legal Group in Summit County has the answers, and they will help you to receive a settlement that is fair, not a settlement that is convenient for the insurance company.
So, while insurance companies are looking out for themselves, and insurance adjusters for the responsible party are trying to shift liability away from their client, who is looking out for you? The mere idea of hiring a lawyer can be daunting, but the professionals at Eshelman Legal Group will take their time, explaining each step of the process to you, and ensuring your comfort at every turn. You can also rest assured that your legal fees will not be another stressor added to your already significant financial concerns. They do not collect their fee until after your case has been successfully resolved, and the fee itself will be based on a percentage of your final settlement. In other words, you won’t have to mortgage the house to hire them, and they have every incentive to put all of their efforts into achieving the best possible settlement for you.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident resulting in injury or even wrongful death, contact Eshelman Legal Group in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio immediately, and let them “make things right.” Even if you do not live in the Akron, Ohio and Summit County, Ohio area, you are not out of luck as their services are available throughout Northeast Ohio.
