Though riding a motorcycle can be a dangerous hobby, there are several things you can do to protect yourself from potential accidents. They are as follows:
Unfortunately, sometimes being a responsible driver is not enough to prevent an accident. If you were injured in an accident due to a careless or negligent motorist, you must call the police immediately. The police will write up an accident report, as well as send an ambulance to take you to receive medical treatment. While you wait for the ambulance to arrive, if you can, ask any witnesses of the accident for their contact information so they may corroborate your story if need be. Lastly, retain the services of an experienced attorney who will work to gather and present evidence on your behalf to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another motorist’s negligence so you can win the compensation you need.
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, so you will have to file your lawsuit within four years of the date of your accident. Failure to do so will generally result in your being denied the right to sue. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started as soon as possible so you can solely focus on recuperating from your injury.
