Boynton Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Motorcycles are a fun, economical and fast way to travel. The downside is that they put riders at much greater risk than they would face inside of a vehicle. Even an experienced and very safe rider faces the constant dangers of increased vulnerability to distracted or i intoxicated drivers, poorly maintained roads, and weather conditions. With nothing between you and the ground but some padding in your attire, even a minor accident can lead to serious personal injury.
If you have been injured or have had your property damaged in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence, recklessness or aggression of another party, you may be able to bring a case in court and obtain fair compensation from the responsible parties. Shiner Law Group has been representing motorcycle riders in Boynton Beach for over a decade and will handle every aspect of your case from start to finish with the utmost professionalism and personalized attention to your individual needs.
What Should You Do After A Motorcycle Accident In Boynton Beach?
Naturally, your first priority should be to seek medical attention if necessary. Even if you feel OK, however, you should still be seen by your doctor sometime shortly after the accident. Not going to a physician after the accident can be used against you in court as evidence that you did not suffer any injury.
Remember, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) will only cover your medical expenses if you seek medical attention within 14 days of accident.
The next step is to determine if another party is at fault for your accident. For example, a driver who was in violation of traffic laws, was texting on their phone at the time or appeared to be inebriated would be found responsible in court. This is not limited to other drivers, however. Poor road or parking lot conditions can be a basis for a case against the parties responsible for maintaining them. If you feel that another party is at fault, you’ll need to identify them and formally file a complaint with their insurance company or with them directly. An attorney can assist you with this step.
There will be a pre-trial phase in which the insurance adjuster conducts an investigation and communicates with your attorney. Our law firm is skilled at negotiating highly favorable settlements for our clients during this phase, meaning that the majority of cases never even have to go to court.
What Our Lawyers Do For You
In addition to assisting you in identifying responsible parties and filing all of the needed paperwork properly, our attorneys will perform the following services during the pre-trial process:
- Negotiate with the other party’s insurance company and attorneys on your behalf, including bringing in collision experts to determine the exact cause of the accident if necessary
- Set you up with any needed medical examinations
- Review settlement offers and fight to get you the best possible offer for your vehicle damage, medical treatment and suffering
As mentioned previously, we are able to settle the vast majority of these cases out of court and with terms that are very favorable to our clients.
