Our office is located near the Delray Beach Courthouse on 200 West Atlantic Ave.
Where do I obtain a copy of the accident report?
We hope that a Delray Beach police officer, Florida Highway Patrol Officer or an officer from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrived at the accident scene. The officer should have provided you with a copy of the driver exchange form. This form lists the at-fault driver's insurance information. The at-fault driver's insurance information is needed to put their insurance company on notice that you are making a claim for damages due to your injuries. We can help you to contact the insurance company. The police report may be obtained by contacting either the Delray Beach police department or Florida Department of Highway Safety Motor Vehicles. The fee for the police report is $12.00. Our law firm advances the costs for the police report for clients.
What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately one-third of motorcycle accidents were caused by other drivers veering into the motorcycles lane of traffic. Motorcycle riders have to be alert to avoid being hit by cars making left-hand turns. Head-on collisions and lane splitting are other causes of motorcycle accidents. Roughly 40% of motorcycle accidents involve alcohol. The easiest way to prevent severe injury to a motorcycle rider is be wearing a helmet. However, we can still help you obtain money to pay your medical bills if you were injured and did not wear a helmet.
Will my insurance pay my medical bills?
Motorcycle riders may not have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. This means that they may not have auto insurance to cover up to $10,000 in medical bills. Therefore, it is important to try to obtain a source of insurance coverage through an at-fault party's insurance carrier to pay for your bills. We can help you get your bills paid.
