Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries that we see are fractures – leg fractures, arm fractures, clavicle fractures, and rib fractures. Brain injuries are another significant injury that we see. There is also a good deal of road rash for people that aren’t wearing the proper protective gear – boots, jackets, etc. Protective gear certainly does play a large role in minimizing some of these injuries, so it’s important to wear the protective gear you need, whether it be boots, jacket or a helmet.
Cost of a Motorcycle Accident Case
Generally, most attorneys in Florida that handle motorcycle accident cases work on a contingency fee basis. What that essentially means is they don’t get paid any money unless they are successful getting an award or a settlement or a verdict for you. No money should ever come out of your own pocket for any reason unless the attorney is successful, and then it’s only coming out of the settlement proceeds and not your own pocket.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
We do not advise clients to release medical records to the insurance company for the person that hit them when on a motorcycle. I would have those records presented through your attorney’s office in the form of either a formal demand or some other type of letter that he or she may send on your behalf. Giving the other insurance company carte blanche access to your medical records isn’t going to benefit your case in any manner or fashion.
