IFN Can Help With Florida Settlement Loans for Motorcycle Accident Victims


Have You Been Involved in a Motorcycle Accident? IFN Can Help

February 26, 2016, on Articles |

Riding a motorcycle on a bright sunny day can be exhilarating for experienced riders, as well as new bikers. Still, it goes without saying that motorcyclists are extremely susceptible to various dangers on area roadways.

Regardless of how an accident occurs, motorcycle accident cases can be quite tricky, and because the laws can be complex, it is important for injured riders to seek legal guidance from a qualified attorney. Injured motorcyclists have certain rights under the law, and a skilled attorney can help ensure that those rights are preserved.

We at Injury Funds Now (IFN) want all motorcyclists to stay safe on the roads. The following safety tips are provided for those who may be in search of ways to stay as safe as possible and avoid potential accidents. It is not meant to replace the legal advice that would be provided by an attorney handling your actual case.

Tip #1: Always Wear a Helmet

Not all states require riders to use helmets when operating a motorcycle. Nevertheless, many studies have been done to show the effectiveness of motorcycle helmets in reducing the occurrence of head injuries when accidents occur. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that for every 100 riders killed in a collision in which they were not wearing a helmet, approximately 37 of those individuals would have lived had they been wearing a helmet.

That said, riders are encouraged to wear helmets that meet Department of Transportation standards, and they should make sure to have one available for their passengers as well.

Tip #2: Don’t Drink and Ride

We hear that statement quite often when referring to automobile drivers, and the same applies to motorcyclists. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by either speeding or alcohol/drug use. Drinking and operating motor vehicles is illegal, and if someone has had one too many drinks prior to operating a motorcycle, it can be extremely risky.

Tip #3: Wear Protective Gear

Riders should always cover themselves with protective goggles or sunglasses, gloves, long pants, a jacket and boots. Clothing items should be bright and made of leather, if possible, or some other kind of material that resists abrasions. You should also keep in mind that your clothing should fit close to the body, as loose clothes could hinder your vision.

Tip #4: Avoid Road Hazards and Know Your Skill Level

There are a number of common road hazards of which motorcyclists should be aware. Such hazards can range from slick roads to debris on the roadway, and the results stemming from those hazards can be life-changing for the rider. That said, it is crucial for riders to know their own skill level and take time to learn how to maneuver the motorcycle in various hazardous situations.

How IFN Can Help You After a Motorcycle Collision

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle crash, chances are you are working with an attorney to obtain the just compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses. However, the process of obtaining that compensation may be taking much longer than you anticipated. This is where IFN can step in to help.

If your injuries have left you unable to work, you may be feeling the financial pinch – so much so that you have attempted to obtain loans or explored other types of financial options. If the other options have not worked for you, you may want to consider a settlement loan.*

Florida settlement loans are not actual loans. If you obtain funding from IFN, you would not be required to pay it back unless your case wins. The money you receive from us can be used to help you pay your bills and relieve some of the money-related stress you may be dealing with while you’re trying to heal from your injuries. The way it works is that we advance you part of the settlement you anticipate receiving from your case. This is typically done within 24 hours of approving your application. There are no hidden fees and the process is quick and easy.

If you are located in Florida or one of the several states we service, fill out our online application. Contact us by calling the Injury Advance Hotline at 1-866-68-FUNDS (36837) or use the online contact form.

*DISCLAIMER: The term "loan" or "loans," where used to describe lawsuit funding is not an accurate legal or financial definition of the transaction. IT IS NOT A LOAN. The transaction is a non-recourse purchase of a portion of the proceeds of a potential future case award or settlement. A loan is a transaction that always requires repayment. Our lawsuit funding only requires repayment if the plaintiff receives a favorable recovery. If the plaintiff loses their case, they do not repay anything.
