Motorcyclists face greater risks than drivers of other vehicles and are often severely injured in accidents says Boca motorcycle accident lawyer Joe Osborne.
Osborne & Associates provides a pathway to the courthouse for their clients who are seriously injured because of the negligence of others. They pride themselves in providing personal, professional service. Boca motorcycle accident lawyer Joe Osborne moves their cases forward and treats each case like it’s a priority. “We make sure that at the end of the day the value of their claim is maximized by our efforts preparing the case, negotiating with insurance companies and representing clients in the courthouse.”
The accident attorneys at Osborne & Associates don’t just file legal papers and make arguments in court. They value the relationships they have with their clients. They want to succeed because that means their clients succeed. “We work hand-in-hand with them to ensure that their rights are protected and they achieve the maximum recovery possible under the circumstances. We understand the stress and strain a client and his or her family endures after a serious accident and we do what we can to make their lives easier.”
They want to help their clients, but they need their help too. If you’re involved in an accident, assuming you’re not too injured to do so, obtaining some important information will be a big help. What that information is depends on the type of case.
If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident it is very important to acquire,
- A copy of the police report,
- Medical records concerning your injuries, diagnosis and treatment,
- Photographs or videos created due to the accident including the vehicles and the scene of the accident,
- A list of treating physicians you have seen since the accident, and
- A list of any witnesses or potential witnesses who could testify about the accident.
This will help the accident attorneys at Osborne and Associates jump-start their investigation. If you are unable to get the information, they can obtain this information and records for you.
One of the types of cases Osborne and Associates help their clients with is motorcycle accidents. They often result in more severe injuries for some very basic reasons. The person on the motorcycle doesn’t have the same protection afforded by a car. Not having all that steel, plastic and glass around you is what attracts people to motorcycling. The downside is if there’s an accident there is nothing between you, the other vehicles and the road except a helmet and any protective clothing you’re wearing.
If there is an intersectional collision it is common to see someone struck from the side and have a significant injury to their lower extremity or leg. If the collision is from behind the rider will usually be ejected from the motorcycle.
Hopefully a helmet will lessen any head injuries but without the protection of a vehicle and a seat belt the injuries will probably be significant. The rider is coming into contact with a vehicle that probably weighs between three and five thousand pounds (a commercial truck would be far heavier) or they’re going to strike the roadway, side of the road, tree or telephone pole.
