Why Are Motorcycling Injuries So Often Catastrophic Injuries?
If that happens because another driver was negligent, you must speak at once to an experienced Orlando motorcycle accident attorney at Page & Eichenblatt.
Motorcycle accident victims often suffer severe personal injuries because motorcycles don’t come with the features that protect a car’s drivers and passengers. Without airbags and seat belts, there’s a much higher risk of brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other catastrophic harm.
Here’s What to Do if a Motorcycle Accident Happens
If you are involved in a motorcycle collision, here’s what you will need to do:
- If you are able, make sure everyone is safe. If anyone is hurt, summon paramedics.
- Seek medical attention for yourself at once, even if you feel fine.
- Summon the police and find out when their accident report will be available.
- If it’s possible, move your bike and the other vehicles off the road.
- Exchange contact and insurance details with the other driver or drivers.
- Take photos of the scene, the property damage, and your visible injuries.
- If there are eyewitnesses, try to get their contact information.
- Do not admit to anything, and do not sign anything.
- After you’ve had a medical exam, call Page & Eichenblatt as quickly as you can.
Should You Speak With the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
Don’t let the other driver’s insurance company pressure you into taking a quick settlement after a motorcycle crash. You’ll almost certainly be settling for less than your injury claim is worth, and you’ll forfeit the right to take any further legal action or to seek any additional compensation.
In fact, do not even speak to an auto insurance company if you’ve been injured by a negligent driver while motorcycling in central Florida; instead, let the legal team at Page & Eichenblatt do the negotiating on your behalf and acquire the settlement you need.
How Are Most Motorcycling Injury Claims Resolved?
Your motorcycle injury claim can probably be settled out-of-court. That’s how most injury claims are resolved in Florida, but when no acceptable settlement figure is offered, Page & Eichenblatt will take your case to trial and ask a jury to order the payment of your compensation.
If you are a motorcyclist and you are injured in an accident, proving that you did not cause the crash can be a daunting challenge. There may be no witnesses to confirm your side of the story, and the physical evidence may not give investigators an accurate picture of what happened.
Why is an Accident Lawyer’s Help So Imperative in These Cases?
If you file a personal injury claim, the other driver’s insurance company – and that company’s attorney – may claim that you were at fault. That’s why you must be represented by an injury lawyer who will conduct a comprehensive investigation of the crash.
Your attorney may seek help from an accident reconstruction specialist to determine exactly how the accident happened and how you were injured. With 21st-century technology and a scientific approach, an expert may be able to reconstruct the crash and explain exactly what happened.
It’s imperative to have an injury attorney’s help at once so that the investigation may begin immediately. Your lawyer will examine every detail of the collision to identify the liable party. Your lawyer will then develop a legal strategy for acquiring compensation on your behalf.
What Will It Take to Acquire the Compensation You Need?
In the state of Florida, the injured victim of a negligent driver may receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more, but you’ll have to prove that you are entitled to that compensation, and you’ll need the advice and guidance of an experienced accident lawyer.
For more than a quarter of a century, the personal injury attorneys at Page & Eichenblatt in Orlando have been fighting for the rights of injured motorcyclists and others injured by negligent drivers in central Florida.
What is Florida’s “14-day Rule” and Why Do You Need to Know?
This is extremely important if you are injured in a motorcycle accident in Florida: You must be treated and/or examined by a medical provider within the first fourteen days after you were injured, or you will not receive compensation for your medical bills and lost wages.
That’s the law in Florida. The “14-Day Rule” is enforced strictly, but you should not wait 14 days to obtain a medical exam. If you’re not examined or treated immediately, a hard-to-find or latent injury could slowly – or in some cases quickly – develop into a serious medical condition.
