QUESTIONS ABOUT MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

How do I know if my or my loved one’s rights were violated during a crash?

Motorcyclists have the same rights as anyone else on the road. But when a careless driver breaks the law and runs a red light, fails to stop at a stop sign, or speeds, it ignores the rights of others and can lead to an accident. Because of the nature of the vehicle, motorcyclists face additional risks and often sustain serious injuriesor wrongful death. This usually means their injuries are more severe, and they often require highly specialized care such as surgery, rehabilitation, or reconstructive surgery. Our Sarasota motorcycle accident lawyers will listen to the details of your accident and let you know if your rights have been violated. Please contact us today to hear more about your rights.

What should I do about insurance companies offering me money or trying to get information about the accident?

We recommend AGAINST talking with the insurance companies or signing any documents that they send you. You may be limiting your rights to compensation. In our experience, insurance companies seldom offer you a fitting settlement. Consider, for example, that assigning an appropriate dollar value to your accident is difficult early on because the full nature of your injuries and your recovery from them usually takes some time. The amount of recovery time varies from individual to individual; settling before you have fully recovered usually precludes further claims from being made. Also, keep in mind that the insurance adjuster’s job is to save the company money which means that no matter how friendly or likeable the adjuster may seem, it is unlikely that your best interests are being met. Yourmotorcycle accident lawyer can handle all of the insurance communication and carefully evaluate any offers to ensure you do not settle for less than you deserve.
