Motorcycle Accident Q&A’s

 

  1. Who pays for a motorcycle accident victim’s medical expenses?

In some cases, a motorcycle accident victim may be able to recover compensation under their personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, which typically covers surgery, doctor’s visits, and other medical costs that are associated with the care that is provided to the accident victim. If the rider has additional coverage, he/she may be able to use that as well. An accident victim may also file a claim with the other driver’s insurer if he/she was responsible for causing the accident.

Under certain circumstances might a motorcycle accident victim be able to recover compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. These types of lawsuits are typically filed when someone else’s negligence was responsible for causing the accident. A Fort Walton Beach, FL personal injury lawyer at Browning Law Firm can determine if a victim has the grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against another party.

 

  1. What if the insurance company offers an up-front payment?

Insurance companies look to close claims out as quickly as possible while spending as little as they can. This means companies will sometimes try and offer a quick settlement so that a victim doesn’t have the time to assess their injuries and determine the true value of them. Therefore, before a victim accepts any type of settlement from the insurer, he/she should consult with a lawyer first.

 

If a motorcycle accident victim or their family has any questions regarding their legal rights or recovering compensation for the injuries suffered, they can always contact Browning Law to discuss them in-depth with a Fort Walton Beach, FL personal injury attorney.
