If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you are probably worried about your health and your finances. We understand how frustrating and scary this whole situation is and we want to help you through this and get you the compensation that you deserve. Here are a few tips for a successful motorcycle accident case.
Tips for a Successful Motorcycle Accident Case | Act Quickly
One of the key ways to ensure you will have a successful case is to adhere to the statute of limitations. You have, in the state of Florida, four years from the date of the accident to either bring your claim or settle your case. If you wait past this four-year mark, you will no longer be eligible for compensation. This time limit may be shorter if you were involved in an accident with a government vehicle or if you are bringing a claim against a government entity. You would be doing that if your accident was caused by a defect in the road like a pothole or something of that nature.
Other than having your case thrown out, a huge disadvantage of waiting to talk to an attorney about your case is that the evidence might disappear. Accidents like these rely on witness statements, and evidence from the scene including photos and videos of the crash impact sites, tire marks, etc. Even after a just few weeks, the witnesses might forget important details about the case, and you do not want that to happen. It will weaken your case considerably.
