Hi, I'm Nick Ortiz. I'm a personal injury attorney in the state of Florida. Today, I'm here to talk to you about motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle accident, then you've likely suffered serious injuries. The types of injuries that one can suffer in a motorcycle accident include road rash, facial fractures and disfigurement, broken bones and burns, spinal cord injuries, or even a traumatic brain injury, also known as a TBI. We know that a motorcycle accident can have a devastating impact on you and your family. You may have unpaid medical bills, you're suffering from time off of work that may be uncompensated, and you may be suffering extreme pain and suffering from your injuries.
As a result of all of these things, you very likely have a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver in the accident, but keep in mind that an insurance company does not have your best interests in mind. That's why we always recommend that you speak to an experienced injury attorney before you sign any forms or paperwork with the insurance company or speak to an adjuster on the phone, because at the end of the day, it's your burden of proof to show negligence by the at-fault driver. Examples of negligence include unsafe lane changes, car doors opening unexpectedly, a DUI driver, sudden and unexpected stops, left turn accidents, speeding, and dangerous road conditions. In fact, you may even have a claim if there was no direct impact between the motorcycle and the at-fault driver vehicle.
Because these types of claims can be very complicated, I actually wrote a book called The Top 10 Mistakes That Will Destroy A Motorcycle Accident Claim.

We look forward to hearing from you.
