Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Miami
Suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident is hard enough without the insurance company making it even harder on you. Trying to obtain the payment to which you are legally entitled is often a full-time job, a task impossible to perform if you are hurt and trying to recover. You need a Motorcycle accident lawyer in Miami to help you in your time of need.
Motorcycle Accidents Almost Always Mean Injuries
In 2019, the last full year for which statistics are available, there were nearly 8,900 motorcycle crashes in Florida. For obvious reasons, motorcyclists have a much higher chance of being injured in an accident than do other drivers. 550 people were killed in these accidents, and more than 2,000 riders and their passengers suffered incapacitating injuries. Over 5,600 people suffered some other degree of injury. In other words, if you were involved in a motorcycle crash, you have almost certainly been injured. Very few people emerge from a motorcycle crash unscathed.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents result in more severe injuries than other types of crashes. When the biker is out in the open, there is little to protect them if another vehicle makes an impact with them or sends them over the handlebars of their bike. Motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from the head striking the concrete
- Serious fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Road-burns from the arms and legs skidding across the pavement
There are a number of reasons why roadways are more dangerous for motorcyclists. The most common reason is that drivers do not take the time to properly look into their blind spots to see bikers. Frequently, motorcycle accidents occur because overaggressive drivers change lanes or turn right into the biker’s space. Motorcyclists have every right to be on the road, and drivers must look out for them. Those that do not could be found legally responsible for the accident.
Prompt Medical Care Is a Must
Even if you did not receive treatment at the scene of the accident, you are still on the safest ground both legally and health wise when you get checked out in the days after an accident. Some injuries do not manifest themselves until days after the accident. For example, you may have hit your head and will not realize until sometime after the crash that you may have sustained a traumatic brain injury. Some types of traumatic brain injuries are not readily apparent at first. The same thing goes for some back and neck injuries.
Even if you were treated immediately, you might not know your exact diagnosis and long-term prognosis right off the bat. It is important to know the full extent of your injuries when you go to file an insurance claim for your injuries or a lawsuit against the driver responsible for the crash. In order to even make you a settlement offer, the insurance company will want a meticulously documented file that shows your injury in detail. They are looking for any excuse possible to deny your claim or make you a lowball offer.
