What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Florida − The Next Steps

What To Do After a Motorcycle AccidentThere are several steps that you take after a motorcycle accident in order to preserve your rights and protect you and your family:

First, do not sign any statements or turn over any medical records to the insurance company following the accident. The insurance company wants a statement from you in order to use that statement against you later. If the insurer can show that you were somehow at fault, even partially, for the accident then they can reduce the amount that you recover for your injuries.

The insurer may also try to convince you to admit that you are not hurt or try to show that your injuries are insignificant or are not related to the accident. Again, the insurance company is taking these steps to try to reduce the amount that they have to pay you for your injuries.

Second, you should consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Do not accept a settlement relating to your injuries without talking to a motorcycle accident attorney. Once you accept a settlement, you forfeit any chance of further recovery.

By accepting a settlement from the insurer without the advice of a motorcycle lawyer, you could be losing out on tens of thousands of dollars to cover injuries like pain and suffering, medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, loss of consortium and punitive damages.

Do not speak with anyone other than your attorney and medical providers relating to your case. Any statements that you make and any actions that you take can be used against you in your case against the insurance company.

Be mindful that you could be followed or investigated by the insurance company after an accident. Remember that your actions in the virtual world and in social media can also be used against you in your case. So be careful what you write and with what pictures you post.
