South Florida’s flat roads, warm weather and picturesque beauty make it a perfect place for motorcyclists to spend a day riding out on the open road. However, motorcyclists are often ignored on the road. Many drivers fail to see them, while other drivers intentionally cut them off. Motorcycle accidents can be devastating. The increase in size of SUVs and cars makes the accident much more deadly when these large vehicles strike motorcycles. In Florida, there are between 350 and 500 motorcycle accident fatalities each year. Most motorcycle accidents are the result of negligence, reckless or careless drivers on the road. Additionally, Florida does not require its motorcycle drivers to wear helmets which many motorcyclists take advantage of, making their injuries more severe. Often, motorcycle drivers suffer devastating injuries, including paralysis, brain damage and spinal injuries as a result of an accident.
First and foremost, after an accident it is important that you receive the medical attention you need to treat your injuries. It is also important to get as much documentation about the accident including police reports and photographs of the scene. Shortly after your accident you will have to deal with your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company. Often, the insurance companies try to minimize your claim or offer you a lesser settlement to close the case. Their goal is to close the case as quickly as possible, not protect you or your rights. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident it is important that you speak with an attorney before speaking with your insurance company.
