If you’ve been in a motorcycle crash, you may find yourself in a scary situation.
You could be dealing with an injury, and the legalities involved are quite complex and murky.
Florida law does not require riders over 21 to wear helmets, and riders are also not required to have PIP (Personal Injury Protection). You need the help of an experienced attorney to navigate this landscape. As your Tampa motorcycle accident law firm, Martinez Law can help. Our experienced legal team understands how complex these situations are, and we have the resources and expertise to defend your rights, including motorcycle accident reconstruction.
Did the road have pot holes, oil spills, or improper signage? We can investigate roadway design and architecture. Was your vehicle riding poorly? Was it wobbly or veering? We can also look into the design and/or manufacturing issues of the motorcycle and see if it warrants a products liability defect claim.
If you find yourself in a motorcycle accident, here are some steps to follow.
First, as always, check for injuries. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, take immediate emergency steps, such as calling 911. Next, contact an attorney. The sooner you contact a qualified attorney with detailed information, including anyone else involved in the accident as well as pictures of the crash site and vehicles involved, the better that attorney will be able to defend your case.
In addition, keep in mind that you should report the accident to your insurance company within 24 hours; otherwise, you may void part of your insurance coverage. Martinez Law is uniquely qualified to protect your rights in the event of a motorcycle accident, and our team is ready to help.
