The other party’s insurance company will try very hard to convince you to settle your case quickly. Fast settlements and quick checks may mean you won’t have enough money to heal and get back to your life. If you’re contacted by an insurance company that pushes to settle immediately, don’t sign anything until you talk to an experienced Florida motorcycle accident lawyer. Don’t settle for less than you deserve.
The best time to hire a motorcycle accident attorney is right after the crash. The crash site should be thoroughly photographed, and any witnesses should be interviewed before memories of the accident details fade and any important evidence is lost or destroyed.
If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident that was preventable, you deserve to be compensated. Contact Klein Law Group at 561-353-2800 to set up a free consultation today
