Motorcycle Accident FAQs

  • What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Accident?

    After a motorcycle accident, take the following steps to protect your well-being and legal rights:

    Ensure Safety: Move to a safe location if possible and assess yourself and others for injuries. If anyone is seriously injured, call 911 immediately for medical assistance.

    Contact Law Enforcement: Call the police to report the accident. A police report will document the details of the accident, which can be valuable for insurance claims and legal proceedings.

    Exchange Information: Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved in the accident, including drivers, passengers, and witnesses. Be sure to get their names, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers, and insurance details.

    Document the Scene: Take photos or videos of the accident scene, including the vehicles involved, any property damage, skid marks, road conditions, and traffic signs or signals. This documentation can serve as valuable evidence later on.

    Seek Medical Attention: Even if you don't think you're seriously injured, it's essential to seek medical attention promptly. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, and delaying treatment could worsen your condition. Keep records of all medical treatment and expenses related to the accident.

    Notify Your Insurance Company: Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible. Provide them with accurate and detailed information about the accident, but avoid admitting fault or making any statements that could be used against you later.

    Contact Morgan & Morgan: Consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney at Morgan & Morgan to discuss your legal options. We can help you understand your rights, navigate the claims process, and pursue compensation for your injuries and losses.

    Preserve Evidence: Keep all documents, records, and receipts related to the accident, including medical bills, repair estimates, and correspondence with insurance companies. This evidence will be crucial for building a strong case for compensation.

    Follow Medical Advice: Follow your doctor's instructions for treatment and rehabilitation. Attend all follow-up appointments, therapy sessions, and recommended treatments to maximize your chances of recovery.

    Be Cautious with Statements: Be cautious about discussing the accident or providing statements to insurance adjusters or representatives from other parties involved. It's best to consult with your attorney before providing any official statements.

    Taking these steps after a motorcycle accident can help protect your rights, ensure you receive proper medical care, and strengthen your potential claim for compensation. Most importantly, contact Morgan & Morgan to help you navigate the complicated legal process.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

    The statute of limitations for filing a motorcycle accident claim varies by state. Missing the deadline to file a claim can result in losing your right to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. Contact Morgan & Morgan as soon as possible to ensure you preserve your rights and gather evidence while it's still fresh.

  • What if I Was Partially at Fault for the Motorcycle Accident?

    The legal doctrine of comparative negligence carries state to state. It allows injured parties to recover compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident. Your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault, but you may still be entitled to recover damages for your injuries.

    Here's how comparative negligence works in motorcycle accident cases:

    Determining Fault: In a motorcycle accident case, fault is typically assessed based on the actions and negligence of all parties involved, including drivers, riders, pedestrians, and other entities. An investigation into the circumstances of the accident will help determine each party's degree of fault.

    Percentage of Fault: If you were partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you were found to be 20% at fault for the accident, your total compensation award would be reduced by 20%.

    Pure Comparative Negligence: Florida follows the doctrine of pure comparative negligence, which means that you can still recover compensation even if you were primarily responsible for the accident. However, your compensation award will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

    Impact on Compensation: Your degree of fault can affect the amount of compensation you ultimately receive for your motorcycle accident injuries and losses. It's crucial to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can advocate on your behalf and present evidence to minimize your degree of fault and maximize your compensation award.

    Legal Representation: If you believe you were partially at fault for the motorcycle accident, contact Morgan & Morgan. Our team can assess the circumstances of the accident, determine liability, and help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries and losses. Morgan & Morgan can also negotiate with insurance companies, gather evidence to support your claim, and represent your interests in settlement negotiations or court proceedings.

  • How Much Compensation Can I Recover for My Motorcycle Accident Injuries?

    The amount of compensation you may be entitled to for your motorcycle accident injuries will depend on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, the extent of your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can evaluate your case and help you pursue the maximum compensation available under the law.

  • Will I Have to Go to Court for My Motorcycle Accident Case?

    While many motorcycle accident cases are resolved through settlement negotiations with the insurance company, some cases may require litigation and go to court. Your attorney will advise you on the best course of action based on the specifics of your case and represent you in court if necessary to pursue the best possible outcome.
