Motorcyclists face some serious disadvantages

_MG_7982Sweet James has ridden motorcycles since he could legally be on the road. He knows the dangers that riders face because of bad drivers and takes it personally when a motorcyclist is injured.

It doesn’t matter how experienced or conservative you are when you ride. Even Valentino Rossi is vulnerable when sharing the road with a text-happy teen. And those who aren’t distracted still fail to look out for motorcyclists.

The odds are stacked against you. Most drivers aren’t considerate of riders on the road. In an accident, the car itself takes the brunt of the force while those inside it get knocked around by big bags of air. For a biker, there’s nothing but the cold, hard road.

In a fair world, these odds would get balanced out after an accident and you’d be protected by all kinds of laws requiring the defendant’s insurance company to take care of you. But fairness doesn’t just happen. So while you’re trying to regain control of your life, the insurance company is figuring out the best way to screw you over.

Adjusters are very crafty

These guys are case killing machines who can cut your claim to pieces before you know what’s happened. Their questions are designed to win a game you don’t even know you’re playing. You probably think they are trying to help, when they are actually asking coldly calculated questions to put you in checkmate.

One strategy in their endless bag of tricks is the bait-and-switch. The adjuster you are initially assigned will seem pleasant, sincere, and helpful. But as soon as they’ve backed you into a corner and run out your options, the nice adjuster will suddenly become unavailable. Your new adjuster won’t seem quite so helpful, now that your claim has been adjusted into the ground.

The insurance playbook is extensive and talking to them is worse than talking to the police. What you say to a cop can be used against you. Insurance adjusters are never on your side; anything you say to them will absolutely be used against you.


How can I even the odds?
