Moped, Scooter, And Sport Bike Accidents
When you think of the word motorcycle, one image may come to mind. But there are oodles of options for individuals who enjoy traveling on motorized bikes. A range of two- or three-wheeled motor vehicles are referred to as motorcycles. Some Florida residents enjoy riding on sports bikes with groups of friends. Others rely on their mopeds to get to work and some even rely on bikes for their job-related tasks.
While motorcycles are a great form of recreation and transportation in the Sunshine State, there are also risks of harm when you are traveling without the protection of a car body and auto safety features, such as airbags. If you were injured in a Clearwater motorcycle crash, a Hudson scooter accident, or a Tampa moped collision, connect with an attorney before signing off on a settlement agreement. This is an important step in shielding your financial future as it could be difficult to impossible for you to access more monetary damages later if you agree to an amount that is simply too low to settle your accident-related expenses.
Cycles Involved In Florida Personal Injury Claims
Accidents, whether they are car accidents, motorcycle collisions, or slip and fall events, occur unexpectedly and for many different reasons. For motorcycle wrecks, often weather issues, turn concerns, and lane merging are contributing factors.
Personal injury claims have followed accident injuries connected to all of the following:
- Employment-related motorcycles
- Standard bikes
- Touring motorcycles
- Dual-purpose bikes
- Sports bikes
Insurance companies are well versed in the risks of each type of motorcycle and how to estimate accident expenses. You need a skilled attorney on your side to be sure you are securing all the resources you need.
Reckless Driving, from Speeding to Lane Weaving
Insurance adjusters may tell you they are doing all they can to secure you a full settlement amount but you need to remember that they work for the organization that will payout the funds. Because of this, it is possible they will move to reduce your claim amount or deny your request completely, citing driver behavior. After all, if it can be proven you hold a degree of fault, due to speeding, weaving through lanes, or other reckless behavior, a claim could be jeopardized.
There are ways to prove your need for recovery. Seasoned Florida personal injury lawyers know how to research and investigate a motorcycle collision, gathering documentation and pushing back on low-ball offers from insurance representatives.
