If you cruise around the Tampa area on a motorbike, you're already
familiar with the hazards that the 4 and the 275 have to offer, not to
mention the dangers of the city streets themselves. Even if you've
never been in an accident, every biker has to keep in mind the instantaneously
life-changing possibility of a wreck.
If you do get clipped, even if you don't seem to be injured, the most
important phone call you can make is to a motorcycle accident attorney.
Tampa's expert lawyers will readily advise you of your rights and
responsibilities — and if you have the potential to win compensation
for the event above and beyond what your insurance will pay, they'll
advise you of that fact as well.
The fact is, insurance companies are in the business of making money, and
they work pretty hard to avoid paying you everything that you deserve
— if your bike gets totaled, for example, you're not likely
to get enough money back to replace it, especially if you've made
any custom modifications. If you get hit by an uninsured driver (there
are a lot more on the road than Florida law allows), you're in double trouble.
That's when it's absolutely mandatory that you get a motorcycle
accident lawyer from Tampa on the phone right away. Without someone on
your side to guide you through the complex legal process of demanding
that you get paid what you deserve, you won't ever get what you deserve
— ask yourself if you could afford to replace your bike out of pocket
right now, and you'll understand. Then realize that the chances of
you walking away from an accident without significant medical bills is
pretty close to zero, and if you don't get a lawyer to change the
situation, you're going to end up paying for those bills as well.
No one wants to give their money to a lawyer, but when the realistic alternative
is buying a used Isuzu to replace your bike and bankrupting yourself paying
the hospital for their steamed Brussels sprouts and rock-hard biscuits,
the attorney becomes the obviously better option — so bite it and
make the call.
