You got into an accident on your baby, your custom bike, fresh from the shop. While most people would be worried about the hamburger flesh on their arms and legs, you are more concerned about the cost of getting your motorcycle fixed or replaced. And with good reason!

Yours is Not an Average Motorcycle

You didn’t go for the stock model off the lot—you poured money, time and sweat into your bike to make it truly yours. Your bike quite simply doesn’t compare to other bikes on the road; it’s in a league of its own. So when you crashed, you saw all that work, all that money, being smashed into a million pieces. And it was probably just as painful as your road rash and messed up shoulder. We get that, we really do, and we want to help you get the money you need to either restore your baby to her former glory or build another bike, but in order to do so, we need a little help from you.

It’s Time to Dig

To get the money you deserve, you’re going to have to do some digging. When you come in, you’ll need to have every receipt you can find. Hopefully you have been carefully filing them away. If not, it’s time to go through that pile of papers in your garage. If you can’t find every receipt, talk to your body shop. Hopefully they have electronic records and can print them off for you. Hopefully. You see, without proof of a total, without solid evidence that you lost $3000 in custom bike parts—not the $1000 you would lose on a standard bike—getting what you need is going to be an uphill battle.

This is because, in case you haven’t noticed, insurance companies—even your own—will try and undervalue your claim as much as they can. They are running a business after all, and their adjustors and agents have been trained to give out as little money as possible; every dollar they keep out of your wallet goes straight into theirs.

What We Can do to Help You

Once you’ve gathered as many receipts as you can, it’s time for our lawyers to get to work. What we will do is go to battle for you, and prove that your bike is worth more than what the insurance company is offering; we will push as hard as we can to get you the money you deserve. We know insurance companies, we know motorcycles, and we want to get you more than you’re being offered.
