Ft. Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Have you been injured in a motorcycle crash in Ft. Lauderdale?
There are many types of motorcycle accidents that occur on the streets and highways in our area. These wrecks are usually dangerous to those involved, as over 95% result in some kind of injury, such as broken bones or road rash or even a debilitating traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. If a negligent driver caused your motorcycle crash, whether the driver did not see you or disregarded your right of way in an intersection, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim. This can cover medical bills, ongoing care, missed time at work, and much more.
Crucial Mistakes that Could Hurt Your Motorcycle Accident Injury Case
Actually winning a personal injury case after a serious motorcycle wreck can be extremely complicated. You must prove that the other party is at fault for the accident and show how your injuries have affected your life. The insurance company is likely to fight and discredit your claim at every step of the way.
One way to ensure that you have the best chance of receiving financial compensation after a serious motorcycle wreck is to avoid common mistakes that many others make. The insurance companies, who will sometimes lie and cheat to line their own pockets, do not want you to know about these.
The first thing to keep in mind is to get immediate medical attention after an accident and keep thorough records of all doctor visits and injuries. Never miss a doctor appointment and always follow every bit of instruction you receive regarding your care and recovery.
Second, it is important that you document as much as you can remember about the accident and how it occurred. Try to avoid talking about the wreck or your injuries with anyone but your own lawyer, as difficult as that may be.
Lastly, never sign anything from the insurance company and—if possible—never answer any questions from an insurance adjuster. You should politely direct all inquiries to your lawyer.
