Concussions and Motorcycle Accidents - Our South Florida motorcycle accident attorneys put your rights first
Head injuries often occur as a result of motorcycle accidents in Florida. And among the most common head injuries riders sustain are concussions. This type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs due to a blow to the head, often caused by a motorcycle crash involving another vehicle.
Motorcycle accident concussions can be very serious. If not treated in time or undiagnosed, concussion victims can suffer from other serious health problems. That's why it's important to see a doctor right away if you or loved one has sustained a head injury in a motorcycle accident.
Then make sure you contact a South Florida motorcycle accident attorney at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. to discuss the details of your case. We have years of experience dealing with such complex cases and know how to demand the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
Symptoms and warning signs
There are many different ways you can tell if you or a loved one has a concussion. Common warning signs include:
- Excessive tiredness
- Poor balance
- Ringing in ears
- Slurred speech
- Severe headaches
If you suspect you have a concussion, seek immediate medical help. Don't try to diagnose yourself. Then speak with an attorney at our law firm to discuss all your available legal options.
Why you need a lawyer
You might think you don't need a motorcycle accident attorney if you sustained a concussion in a crash caused by another driver. All you have to do is tell your insurance company you were injured in an accident and they will take care of everything else.
Don't be so sure. In most cases, insurance companies treat motorcycle accident victims as if they were the ones who did something wrong. That's because many insurance investigators think all motorcyclists are reckless, especially if you sustained your injury while not wearing a helmet. (Motorcycle helmets are only required for people under 21 years old in Florida.)
That's not right. If you didn't do anything wrong, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your crash. That's why we take such cases so seriously at our South Florida law firm. That's why we want to work with you. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation today. We're here for you when you need us most.
