If you are reading this right now, something very bad has happened to you while you drove a motorcycle on the roads of Vermont or New York’s North Country, and you are looking for a strong (and caring) law firm like ours, to help you:

• Make sure your medical bills are paid and you don’t go into debt,
• Make sure you are treated by the best doctors, so you get the best chance to fully recover
• Make sure you will be paid for the many months you are out of work,
• Make sure they compensate you for all your pain and suffering so you can rest knowing all your bills are paid for, and…

Make sure they are brought to justice for their
negligent driving that has cost you so much

At our law firm we have seen motorcycle accident victims suffer more times than we care to count.

Tell us this is not true:

  • You have been a law abiding citizen you’re entire life. check.
  • You pay your taxes. check.
  • You pay your insurance. check.
  • You follow the rules of the road. check.

Then, suddenly, and out of nowhere, some guy or gal in a bigger vehicle, on their cell phone, or acting carelessly, pulls into the road when they weren’t supposed to, and you land on your *^&$! cringing in pain from multiple injuries to your body.

A big CHECK!

So Many Questions

Your life is forever changed and you are angry about it. But, first you are in tremendous pain and are looking for help as to how to resolve it.

You don’t want to make any mistakes on your next steps towards recovery, but you’ve never been in an accident like this before and you don’t know where to turn.

You probably have a million questions right now spinning around in your head, like:

  1. Who is going to pay for the medical treatment not covered by my health insurance?
  2. Who is going to make sure they pay for all the damage to my motorcycle?
  3. How am I going to get compensated for all the lost time at work, the terrible pain I experience everyday and other bills that are piling up while I recover?
  4. How can I trust a personal injury lawyer on a billboard – aren’t they in it just for the money?
  5. I am afraid to trust the wrong lawyer to help me, I don’t know where to turn?

If you have asked yourself any of these questions by now, know that you are not alone.

We say that in order to tell you that you are doing the right the thing, right now, by reading up on how best to move forward.

If you are confused, we are happy to help you determine what to do next during a consultation call:

Why Do I Need A Lawyer

We know you are in tremendous pain and have likely suffered more severe injuries than your everyday car accident victim. So, your medical bills and treatment will be higher than the average accident victim.

What does that mean for you?

Well, it means you need to get more money out of the insurance companies to pay for the bills that you currently have and are likely to pay in the future. But, that doesn’t mean they have all the money that you need.

Sometimes, the driver that hit you doesn’t have high enough policy limits to cover all of your injuries, lost wages and pain and suffering combined. So, you may have to go after the driver, owner and your own underinsured motorist insurance company to get all the funds you need to pay for what you have lost and may owe.

Lawyers Who Aren't Afraid of Trials

So, the next step may mean you have to prepare and file a lawsuit.

And we know that you, like many of the hundreds of clients who have walked into our office in Middlebury, Vermont or Plattsburgh, New York, may not even be the type of person that believes in filing a lawsuit.

Trust us, we are lawyers, and we don’t like to go to trial unless we absolutely have to. That is why we prepare for day one like your case could go to trial. We want to stay ahead of the defense attorney’s each step of the way, so they are willing to give you the money you need without going to trial. If you’re put in front of a jury of your peers we want to ensure your success, and that success can only be achieved with hard work and dedication.

Drew tells the insurance company the facts. Since he’s been doing this a long time and is honest about his clients’ injuries, they usually pay our clients what they are owed.

Most times insurance company’s listen and sometimes they don’t. It really just depends on your situation.

The larger the payout, the more likely they are to push back to see if they can reduce what they owe.

What Makes Us Different
Is Not Your Normal Suit

Where most personal injury law firms rely on quick settlements to pay their staff and to keep the lights on, and where most firms do not like to do the hard work – like taking depositions and preparing for trial – Drew actually thrives on getting the most for his clients by trying cases.

Drew and his team like prepping for pre-trial work like depositions and discovery. Drew Palcsik likes trying cases in front of a jury because he is able to tell your unique story to a group of your peers who could have been in your shoes.

While not all lawyers prefer not to go to trial, because it can take a longer time for you to see a financial recovery, we go the distance if we believe we can get you more money to help you recover and, thus, more justice, than if we just settled right out of the gate.

Many firms don’t do what we do because it is a lot of work to try a case. Call us crazy, but, we just happen to like trying cases. Drew’s experience in courts in both New York and Vermont, has given him the opportunity to become really good and highly respected in the Champlain Valley 

Our team always assumes we are going to go to trial from the moment you step into our office and we take your case. We prepare our file as if we will be going to bat for you in the courtroom, which means we are better prepared than most people out there.

And, in this legal game of thrones, the kings are the ones who prepare for trial from the beginning.
