Effectively engaging in personal injury protection arbitration

If you sustained injuries in a motorcycle collision with another vehicle, you are likely eager to ensure that you receive the medical care and rehabilitation that you are entitled to as an accident victim. After all, you did not cause the collision in question and the insurance company should support your injury claims. Unfortunately, however, the attorneys at the law firm of Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, L.L.P., are all too well acquainted with the fact that insurance providers often attempt to avoid covering the full amount of medical expenses that accident victims incur. That is why we strive to advocate on behalf of our clients through the entire personal injury protection arbitration process.
