After being in a motorcycle accident, insist that a report is filed by the local police department so that every detail of the accident can be recorded. Try to take photos of the accident and get the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident if you are able.
It is a good idea not to make any statements or sign any forms until you've consulted with an experienced Miami motorcycle accident attorney. Insurance companies often use recorded statements against you, as evidence with which to deny coverage. Talking with a lawyer first helps protect your interests. It makes sure someone is on your side after a motorcycle accident.When Motorcycle Passengers Are Injured
Sadly, motorcycle passengers often suffer some of the most serious injuries in motorcycle accidents. Some studies suggest that their injuries are even more severe than the injuries of cyclists operating bikes. Upon impact with the ground, passengers can suffer broken bones, lost limbs, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain injuries and wrongful death.
It is possible to bring claims on behalf of a passenger against an operator when the operator is at fault. Even though their injuries are serious, motorcycle passengers are often reluctant to bring personal injury lawsuits against the operators of motorcycles. These people are often friends, relatives or loved ones. Injured passengers worry that the lawsuit will create tensions and trouble by holding motorcyclists personally responsible for damages, but they should remember that it is usually the insurance company that will eventually pay the claim.Contact a Miami Motorcycle Accident Attorney
