Cars and motorcycles may share the roads in Homestead, but these two types of vehicles really do not mix in an accident. Due to the difference in size between the two, in a vehicle collision, motorcyclists are often severely injured while motorists walk away without a scratch. Cars simply have more layers of protection and more safety systems while motorcyclists often only have a helmet and a jacket.
If you have been in a motorcycle collision in Homestead and have been injured, contact Flaxman Law Group at any time to review the details of your case with a personal injury attorney and to get legal advice about your situation.Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
You may believe that you do not need a personal injury attorney after a motorcycle or car accident in Homestead because you are covered by insurance or because you assume you have no case. However, there is no way to tell what your options are until you get legal advice. Your case may be worth more than you think and a personal injury attorney may be able to uncover liable parties or options you did not even consider. Even if you think you are covered by insurance, you may find that you qualify for more compensation than you realize.A Motorcycle Accident is a Financial and a Legal Issue
If you have suffered a serious injury, the last thing on your mind may be legal action. However, there are a few good reasons why you may want to reconsider pursuing a lawsuit:
- It can help you secure justice
- It can secure compensation for medical bills and other expenses
- It can help you get answers about your injuries and accident
- It can hold responsible parties accountable
- It can help others who are injured by negligence
- It can help bring about important safety changes that could help prevent future injuries
- It can help secure compensation to replace lost income
If you have been injured, keep in mind that the injuries from a motorcycle crash are likely to be severe and expensive. You may need to pay for lost income, attendant care, medical costs, medicine, medical devices, rehabilitation costs, caregiver costs, housekeeping costs, counseling, and more. Compensation can help with these expenses.
Keep in mind that the injury from your motorcycle crash may not only be a medical and legal situation, but a financial one as well. In addition to the pain and suffering you feel as a result of your injuries, you may be missing time at work and may be facing considerable medical bills because of your injuries. Protecting yourself financially can be just as important as seeking medical attention. Fortunately, Florida law does protect you by allowing you to seek a legal claim against those who are responsible for your injuries.
