Steps After a Motorcycle Accident
The first three things you probably need to do, if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident in the state of Florida, is:
- Seek the appropriate medical care and treatment that you need
- Contact an attorney to represent your interests
- Make sure you contact the police so an appropriate report is made of the accident
Importance of a Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Yes, it is important to retain an attorney to represent you for your Florida motorcycle accident. You need someone who is familiar with all the specific laws governing motorcycle cases and the nuances and distinctions between a motorcycle accident and a car accident. Someone that’s capable and accustomed to handling motorcycles accident claims can get you the compensation that you deserve.
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.
