Motorcycle Accident Claim Process
When you are involved in a motorcycle accident case, it can be very similar to a car accident case but different in the sense that you are going to be dealing with a lot of people who have a bias towards you simply because you were on a motorcycle. A lot of people are going to feel that simply because you are a motorcyclist you are also a dangerous driver and put yourself in risky situations. We don’t necessarily know how people started believing this but we do know that we need to work harder to prove you were the victim.
We will work hard to get the insurance company to give you the results that you deserve. If, however, they end up forcing us to go to trial to attempt to get a fair result, we are going to have to deal with a jury that might have the same bias against you. It’s important that you have Orlando motorcycle accident lawyers by your side who have been through these cases before successfully and know how to navigate this bias towards you and ensure that your results are fair, in spite of what the jury might think before they even meet you in your case.
Do You Need Legal Help?
When you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident and you are seeking justice, it will come in the form of a financial award. These cases are made against the person responsible for your injuries— likely another driver on the road who violated traffic laws or was being reckless. This isn’t the person who is going to be fulfilling the financial compensation, however. Their insurance company will be; they will both be held responsible. It is up to our lawyers to fiercely defend your rights to justice and make sure that in the end your results are as good as they possibly could be.
Act Quickly After Your Accident
Some of the most severe injuries that happen on the roads today are because of an accident involving a motorcycle. There are enough horror stories from ambulance drivers that would scare even the toughest of people. If you’ve been lucky to come out of a motorcycle accident alive you need to make sure that your health is your number one priority. Acting urgently to receive medical care is going to benefit you.
Injuries don’t happen only from the collision of the accident; you can also suffer some serious injuries from the secondary impact of hitting the road after you’ve been hit by another vehicle. These types of accidents could warrant a long list of treatments, including surgeries, physical therapy and a considerable amount of bedrest. It is important that you get this medical treatment right away. We will be able to use your medical records as evidence when we show the insurance company just how badly hurt you were. It is important also that we need to understand what your medical recovery is going to look like so the sooner you get to a doctor the sooner will be able to figure that out.
The reason why we emphasize the importance of getting medical care immediately after you’ve been hurt is not just because of the risk to your health but also because it could endanger your case with the insurance company. They are looking for any little reason to throw out your case that they can possibly find. If they noticed that you didn’t seek medical attention right away after your motorcycle accident for some reason, they would try to blame it on the fact that you lied about how badly hurt you were. They’ll even try to say that these injuries came from some other accident that didn’t involve them. These are all tactics to wash their hands clean of responsibility for your case, and we don’t accept that. We fight against these tactics. It is much easier, however, for us to do that when you’ve received treatment right away.
Value of Your Motorcycle Accident Case
When we are determining the value of your case, there are several, different factors that we look into. We are going to make sure that we thoroughly investigate your motorcycle accident so we can ensure that we have the correct liable party and that we have a thorough understanding of what happened to you and how it has affected your life. Our Orlando motorcycle accident lawyers want to get as much out of your case as possible.
We look into the two categories of damages: economic and non-economic.
The economic damages that you suffer will include things like medical bills, ambulance rides, physical therapy etc. Your medical fees and expenses and any other financial loss related to your motorcycle accident would be considered an economic damage. We also consider your property damage to be an economic damage. That would be if you had to trash your motorcycle because it was so badly damaged in the accident. We also look at what your lost wages are if you’ve had to miss time at work to heal.
Your non-economic damages are going to be all of the ways in which your life has been negatively affected by being involved in this motorcycle accident. Many people suffer from mental illness after a traumatic motorcycle accident and experience conditions such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. We will look into all the ways your quality of life has been reduced following this accident and fight hard to make sure that your compensation award accurately reflects everything that you’ve been through.
Issues We May Encounter
We are going to encounter obstacles in the process of our case. That’s just to be expected. Our Orlando motorcycle accident lawyers are prepared for these obstacles. The insurance company is going to be our biggest obstacle— they don’t want to give you the results that you deserve. They will try to delay our case in the hopes that you take an offer that is less than what you truly are entitled to because they want you to get sick of waiting. Patience is a virtue for us, but we are still going to push this case along quickly while maintaining the dignity of our case to ensure results that are fair.
It is deeply important that during your case you do not give the insurance company a recorded statement regarding your motorcycle accident. You do not have a legal obligation to talk to them about your case. The only information that they truly need from you is your contact information. Anything past that is leverage that they could use against you. If they were to get you to agree to a recorded statement, they could ask you questions that would force you to answer in a way that might be unfavorable to your case. Talk to our lawyers before you talk to an insurance company. Most Orlando motorcycle accident lawyers are going to tell you to avoid speaking to the insurance company because they will do anything they can to reduce your case value.
We want you to know that the sooner you act to get in touch with our Orlando lawyers, the sooner we can get started on building a strong foundation for your case. In Florida, your statute of limitations is four years, which means you have four years to bring your civil case. This might seem like a long time but if you start letting things like your personal injury case slip off of your radar, then four years can fly by with you forgetting to bring up your issues with a lawyer. Don’t make the mistake of missing out on justice simply because you didn’t call us right away.

“In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”
