Coral Gables Loosing Control on Turns

Since motorcycles are two wheeled vehicles, balance is very important when operating these vehicles. This can especially be a concern on turns. It is important that bikers not use brakes during a turn, even though most bikes have both rear and front brake controls. Incorrect breaking on turns as well as other mistakes can cause motorcycles to lose control on turns.

What To Do If You've Been In A Traffic Crash In Coral Gables Or Your Community

If you've been in a traffic accident, there are several things that you will need to do:

1) Seek medical attention immediately. If you have been seriously injured or if you suspect that you may have hit your head, it is best to visit the emergency department. However, even if you're not sure whether you have been injured, it is important to get a full medical evaluation. Soft tissue injuries, whiplash, chronic pain conditions, and some head injuries do not always have symptoms right away and you want to make sure that you eliminate these possibilities quickly or get treatment if you have in fact been injured.

2) Get information and evidence about the crash. Exchange insurance information with the other driver, take photos of the accident scene, and get contact information of any witnesses. Keep a journal at home where you can record injuries, costs related to your injuries, and keep any receipts related to your expenses. Having lots of information and evidence can help you build a strong case if you decide to pursue compensation or negotiate with an insurance carrier.

3) Report the accident. If you suspect that a crime has been committed or if the accident was serious, you will want to contact the police and authorities. Even if the accident was relatively minor you will want to report it to your insurance company in order to start the insurance claims process.

4) Talk to a personal injury attorney. Often, it is difficult to understand all of the many laws which can affect your claim process and it can be difficult to determine what the likely long-term costs of your injuries may be. This can make it harder to evaluate insurance or settlement offers. A personal injury attorney can answer your questions, can investigate the accident, and can represent you so that your interests are protected. A good attorney can also fight for your right to maximum compensation so that your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses are covered.
