Can You Seek Compensation?
Under Florida law, anyone who is injured in an accident can seek financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit if they can show that the person who caused the accident acted in a negligent or reckless manner.
Negligence or recklessness in a motorcycle crash could include a wide range of things including:
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Distracted driving
- Failure to obey all applicable driving laws
In short, you just need to show that the other person was driving in a way that any reasonable person would recognize to be unsafe. If this is the case, you could be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys will fight to get you the most from your injuries so you can move on.
What Damages Are You Owed?
A motorcycle crash can be one of the most serious accidents you can endure. The reason is simple - a motorcyclist has little protection in the event of a crash, and the larger size and mass of a passenger car means that it can do major damage to a biker. If you're injured, the road to recovery can be very long.
It's important to remember that you have rights, and that many insurance companies will offer settlement amounts that are far lower than what you're actually owed. Before you accept a settlement offer, it's worth consulting with an Englewood motorcycle accident attorney. Consider some of the factors that play into a fair settlement:
- Lost wages due to missing work
- Future potential lost wages
- Potential reduction in salary due to inability to work
- Medical bills
- Future potential medical bills
- Compensation for your pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
As you can see, there's more to a settlement than you might think. Our attorneys can make sure you don't make a mistake and accept an offer that doesn't cover your real costs, and we'll always work to get you what you truly deserve.
Proving Fault To prove that the other party acted in a negligent or reckless manner and that you're really owed compensation, our team will use a variety of different resources and techniques including:
- Security camera footage
- Mobile phone records
- Driver histories
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- Data recorder info if the vehicles had data recorders installed
You can trust that the other side will use as many tools and techniques as they can to avoid paying you a dime, and as such it's important that you have someone on your side that will stand up for your rights and fight for you.
Defending You Insurance companies and the legal teams of the person responsible for the accident will often use a wide range of tactics to avoid paying out anything. This amounts to bullying, and it can make it difficult for those who are injured in an accident to know what steps they can really take.
