Car Accidents in Zephyrhills
A car accident can change your life. Before you even fully understand what’s happening, you may be dealing with catastrophic injuries. Common injuries in a motorcycle crash include injuries to extremities, including bone fractures and limb crush injuries; soft tissues injuries, such as sprains and strains; internal injuries; injuries to the skin, such as road rash, puncture injuries, and laceration injuries; head and scalp injuries, including traumatic brain injuries; and back and neck injuries, including spinal cord injuries.
Costs associated with a serious car accident
Not only will a motorcyclist likely suffer severe physical injuries, but they will probably incur financial losses and psychological harm as well. A motorcyclist may expect to deal with:
- High medical bills and ongoing medical treatment costs, including costs of rehabilitation and therapy;
- Lost wages and, sometimes, the permanent loss of earning capacity and benefits;
- A diminished quality of life as a result of injuries that leave them unable to do basic tasks or the things they once loved; and
- Physical pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress and anguish.
Who pays for a car accident in Zephyrhills?
If you have been in a car accident and have suffered damages, knowing who’s to blame for the accident will be key in recovering a settlement. In Florida, the party who causes an accident is responsible for paying for it. This means that there will need to be an investigation into your crash to determine what happened and who is liable, or legally responsible. Common actions that lead to motorcycle accidents include drivers failing to:
- Maintain a safe speed;
- Look before changing lanes;
- Double-check blindspots;
- Drive while sober, alert, and free of distractions;
- Follow posted traffic safety laws; and
- Generally exercise safe and responsible driving habits.
Amount of time to file a claim
It is always important to provide your insurance company with notice of an accident as soon as possible after it happens, usually within the first 24-48 hours. If you wait too long to tell the insurance company about the accident, they may have legitimate cause to deny your claim. However, you will have four years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit for damages. Usually, claims go through a negotiation or mediation process outside of court before a lawsuit is filed and litigation is pursued.
