Motorcycle accidentFlorida and Georgia have some of the most registered motorcycles in the nation, with Florida being third. Unfortunately, they also have some of the most motorcycle accidents in the country. 

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for injuries, medical bills, and time missed from work. Here’s what to do after a motorcycle accident. 

What To Do Immediately After

Inform Law Enforcement 

If you can, inform law enforcement immediately of the accident. Law enforcement can help address any traffic issues that may arise due to debris or as a cause of the accident. They can also take down statements that are beneficial during a legal claim. 

Get Medical Attention

Even if you feel ‘fine,’ making sure you seek medical attention can address injuries that were otherwise unnoticeable due to shock or adrenaline and establish necessary documentation if you seek legal assistance. 

How Long Do You Have To File a Legal Claim?

Depending on the type of claim you are filing, it can vary. In the state of Georgia, you have up to two years from the date of injury to file a claim reporting bodily injury. If filing a property damages claim, then you have four years. In Florida, you have up to four years from the date of the accident to file an auto accident claim. 

Partner with an attorney experienced in the legal matter to ensure you don’t miss legal deadlines.
