Hire A Lawyer To Get Fair Compensation Following A Motorcycle Accident
Many states across the country remain on stay-at-home orders because of COVID-19. Meanwhile, other places have begun reopening, including Florida. That means people can return to their jobs, go shopping at stores that were previously closed, and dine at their favorite restaurants if they wish. They can even relax and have some fun in the sun as many of Florida's beaches are open again. It seems that the days of light traffic are gone now, and as more and more areas ease stay-at-home guidelines, the streets will likely be full of motorcyclists soon.
No one can blame riders for wanting to get out and about. After all, citizens have been cooped up for quite some time now, and many of them have become restless. Hitting the open road on a bike is a surefire way for people to lift their spirits. There is just something about the freedom that comes with taking a motorcycle out for a spin. However, unfortunately, because the Sunshine State is such an excellent locale for these machines, it is not uncommon for collisions to occur between them and other vehicles.
Motorcycle operators and their passengers are thrust into harm's way when such incidents happen. Bikes simply do not offer the protection that cars do. They don't have seat belts or airbags. There are no roofs, doors, or anything else to shield riders from danger. As such, they are often ejected from their seats when collisions occur with big rigs, SUVs, cars, and trucks. They can be left with severe and debilitating injuries such as:
• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Deep Gashes, Lacerations, And Puncture Wounds
It Can Be Time-Consuming And Expensive To Recover From A Motorcycle Accident
The majority of motorcycle accidents are not forgiving. Injured parties sometimes need months or even years to recover from their wounds. Not to mention, participants regularly experience lost wages from not being able to work. It can be difficult for them to pay for everyday expenses, and additional medical costs can be out of the question entirely. Luckily, if someone else's negligence caused the incident, the victim may be able to recover compensation from the other person's insurance.
Don’t Get Taken Advantage Of By An Insurer
The injured party may be able to file a claim against their own insurance policy. However, insurance agencies don't always like to play fair. On many occasions, their representatives are only worried about one thing, and it is not the injured party's health. Rather, they want to pay out the smallest amount of compensation possible, if any at all. Insurance companies drag their feet, delaying, delaying, and delaying again, hoping that people will run out of money and agree to mediocre settlements.
Insurance businesses are just that: businesses. They initially offer low-ball payouts and try their best to get victims to accept them. Thankfully, Floridians do not have to face these ordeals alone.
