Did You Get Hurt In A Motorcycle Accident From No Fault Of Your Own?
Motorcycle accidents are not gentle events that people get up and walk away from without a scratch. Well, sometimes they may be just that, but in most instances, riders sustain injuries when a car crashes into them. Those who believe the incidents don't happen frequently are sadly mistaken. In the Sunshine State alone, Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor vehicles reported that there were 9,143 motorcycle crashes here in 2018.
In those instances, 531 fatalities occurred. Additionally, 7,849 motorcyclists sustained injuries. Such numbers are not nearly acceptable, but they come along with the hands that people were dealt. Motorcycle accidents are very unforgiving. Riders don't have doors, a roof, or seat belts to protect them. Rather, they only have helmets and whatever type of clothing they have on. As such, common damages associated with the episodes include but are not limited to...
• Loss Of Limbs
• Lacerations And Punctures
• Internal Organ Damage
• Traumatic Brain Injury
Many Times, Motorcycle Crashes Are Caused By The Negligence Of Other Drivers
Negligence comes in many forms where driving is concerned. Speeding, texting while behind the wheel, and drowsy driving name but just a few. If a reckless driver caused your motorcycle accident and injuries, why should you be responsible for the medical bills to recover? The answer is, you shouldn't. The person, or their insurance company, needs to be picking up the tab. After all, there won't be anything cheap about it, anyone who has been to the doctor recently or purchased a prescription knows that.

Insurance Representatives And Defendant Lawyers Don't Like To Play Fair
The two parties mentioned in the sub-heading title go above and beyond to discredit claims as they arise. Why? Well, their only concern is to avoid or prevent their client from paying out a significant sum. They don't tend to care all that much about the plaintiff's troubles. The individuals offer low ball settlements that do not even come close to being worthy of consideration. Plus, they drag their feet and delay the entire process, hoping that the injured party runs out of money. Therefore, victims need trustworthy and reliable accident attorneys in their corners to combat unfair practices.
