“Muscle damage” is a catch-all term that can refer to whiplash, back strains, muscle weakness, spasms, and other conditions. One of the most insidious aspects of many forms of motorcycle muscle damage is the fact that it may occur some time after the accident. The longer you wait to see a doctor, the harder it can be to prove that your muscle damage was caused by the accident. In our experience, defendants and insurance companies will jump on any weakness in a motorcycle accident victim’s claim and exploit it for the maximum possible leverage. We see it as part of our job to alert you to potential claim-damaging mistakes and to work to quickly repair any mistakes that have already been made.
At Malman Law, we still see red when we catch a defendant or an insurance company trying to bully our clients. We won’t stand for it, and our results prove it:

In most industries, the interests of service providers are adverse to the interests of their clients. Your insurance company, for example, loses money every time it pays a claims. At our office, it’s the opposite. Our fees are set at a percentage if the amount of compensation we secure for you. This means that the more money you make, the more money we make.
