Why should you care that we are a Founding Member?

By Bruce D. Skaug, Managing Attorney

With some associations, lawyers simply pay a yearly fee and post the association logo on their websites.

Our NAMIL membership is different.

Being a Founding Member of the National Academy of Motorcycle Injury Lawyers (NAMIL) is something we take seriously.

It shows our heart-felt desire to help riders and our commitment to motorcyclists’ rights.

Not only are we founding members, we are the only law firm in Idaho who are members of this esteemed organization.

Being a member of NAMIL means we stay up-to-date on the best ways to help bikers protect their rights and make sure they are fairly compensated if they have an accident.

Our NAMIL group met in Milwaukee where we also visited the Harley-Davidson museum and factory.

Our NAMIL group met in Milwaukee where we also visited the Harley-Davidson museum and factory.Our association is a special group of lawyers from across the country who meet on a monthly conference call to exchange ideas and answers with fellow motorcycle attorneys.

In addition, we meet together several times each year for several more days of training and discussion.

A recent NAMIL meeting was held in the shadow of the Harley-Davidson museum which gave all of us the opportunity to see inside this iconic American brand.

Our NAMIL membership also means we are active in supporting Idaho motorcycle groups and safety organizations.

We recently sponsored a motorcycle accident scene management course taught by Road Guardians.

This course is so valuable because it helps you know how to help a rider who goes down during the first 10-60 minutes until the ambulance arrives.

I took the day-long course and am certified in the Bystander Assistance Program of Road Guardians.

When a biker has been injured in an accident, the other guy’s insurance company will usually attack the rider, saying they were speeding or did an unsafe maneuver.

They will also offer you a low settlement. If you question it, they may insist it is as high as they can go.

The Idaho Biker Lawyers at Skaug Law help you push back when the insurance company tries to push you around.

We help you hold the insurance company accountable.

And we aren’t satisfied until you win the maximum for your injuries and damages.

Our mission is to help motorcycle injury victims to win the maximum for their injuries and losses.

We want injured riders to know you only have one shot at this.

Once you accept an offer from the insurance company and sign the release it is over forever.

You won’t get a second chance.

Talking to one of our lawyers is free. You will get answers and trusted advice about your options.

Call anytime, 208-466-0030.
