Despite having been on the road for decades, motorcycles are not as protective as cars. You’re exposed to the road, and you’re less visible to other drivers. Unfortunately, this leads to a higher rate of crashes, injuries, and fatalities among motorcyclists.
If you or a loved one have suffered in a motorcycle accident in Pompano Beach and feel lost, know that you are not alone. Dyson Law, PLLC in South Florida is ready to represent you with the compassion you deserve, and the aggression that the situation warrants.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident in Pompano Beach, it is vital to receive medical attention for your injuries immediately following the collision, regardless of whether or not you have found yourself injured. Because you may not start to feel your injuries until later, it is important to seek medical care to ensure you are getting the treatment you need.
Once you have received medical attention, you need to gather evidence. Take photos of your motorcycle, of the other driver’s vehicle, any injuries you may have sustained, and anything else that might be relevant if you choose to bring a lawsuit to court. Your accident report from the police, for example, can shed light on who’s responsible for your suffering.
It is also important to obtain the information of anyone who was involved in the accident—drivers, passengers, and even witnesses, if possible. Getting all contact information can make the process significantly smoother for everyone.
Florida is a no-fault state, meaning that, no matter who caused the accident, everyone will be covered by their own insurance. The children, household members, and any passengers without their own insurance may also be covered by the driver’s insurance.
Keep in mind as well that motorcycles are often subjected to different laws. For example, motorcycles are not covered under Florida’s no-fault insurance laws because they have two wheels, not four. Because of this, your insurance coverage may look different.
Because of this, determining liability is even more important for motorcyclists. Talk to your lawyer about gathering information to prove the other party was liable and protect your funds.
Motorcycle accidents can be costly, and you may find yourself struggling to get compensated for your damages, both economic and non-economic. If you’re not sure what your claim is worth, it’s sadly easy to accept less than your claim is worth.
