Personal Injury Lawsuit for Motorcycle Accidents
If you or someone you care for has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, there are several things you’ll want to keep in mind.
First and foremost, the injured party will want to make sure they seek proper medical care and document all injuries and expenses that were incurred during the course of treatment. This would include everything from ambulance expenditures, emergency room fees, surgical fees and copays.
Second, at some point, the insurance company will reach out to you to get your side of the story. Remember- the job of an insurance company is to minimize its losses—which means that the person who calls you is unlikely to have your best interest in mind. Be very careful what you say to the insurance company employee, because anything you say could be used against you should you file a claim.
Third, you’ll want to contact an experienced, reputable personal injury attorney that has experience in litigating motorcycle accident cases. Motorcycle accidents can be as emotionally stressful as they are financially taxing, which is why it’s important to have a Naples law firm that can help to get you the compensation you deserve.
Document, document document
If you were in an accident but you’re not sure if you were injured, you’ll still want to seek medical care as quickly as possible. If a medical professional determines that you do have injuries it will be important for you to receive both a proper diagnosis and proper medical care. The doctor will be able to explain the extent of what’s wrong in addition to helping you understand now to not injure yourself further during the healing process.
You’ll want to document everything (dates, times, costs incurred). Medical expenses can pile up quickly and no one wants to find themselves in a position where they’re forced to choose between bankruptcy or a lifetime of making payments for their medical bills.
