Motorcycles are fuel-efficient and fun to ride, which make them popular as a transportation alternative. But what happens if you or your loved one suffers a crash while riding a motorcycle? Unlike cars and other four-wheeled vehicles, motorcycles offer drivers and passengers little to no protection in an accident, even with helmets. That’s because even if the rider takes all necessary precautions, accidents can happen due to the negligence of others, and injuries and trauma in such situations can be extremely severe.
Most Important things to do in case of Motorcycle Accidents in Florida:
o Get the name, address, and driver’s license number of all other drivers
o Get the name and address of the owners of all vehicles involved if different from the drivers
o Get the license plate number and insurance information of all vehicles involved
o Get the name, address, and phone number of any witnesses
o Call law enforcement to make an accident report
o Take photos of the damage to all vehicles, even using your cell phone
o Get immediate medical attention for any and all injuries you sustained in the accident
o Call Stone & Capobianco to learn about and protect your legal rights
