Lakeland is perfect for a motorcycle ride, but an accident on your bike can destroy your life until you make a recovery. Our lawyers know that a total recovery means healing physically and financially, and we fight the insurance companies and legal teams of the other side to make sure you get what you deserve.
This time can be difficult, and we fight to make sure that you're able to heal while we get you justice.
Can You Seek Compensation?
In order to file a Lakeland motorcycle accident lawsuit, you need to be able to show that the other party acted in a way that was reckless or negligent and that those actions are what led to your injuries. Some examples of what this may include are:
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Driving while distracted
- Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
- Failure to obey all applicable traffic laws
If your accident was caused by the actions of another, you may be able to file a lawsuit and seek compensation. Contact our office to let us start fighting for you and get you the most after your injuries.
How Does Your Attorney Prove Fault?
When you're struggling to recover from an accident, you shouldn't have to worry about the stresses of your financial stability or the legal process. That's why our Lakeland motorcycle accident attorney is so important - we take over so you can focus on healing.
We use a number of different tools and resources to prove that our clients are owed restitution. Some of the different things we might use in your case include:
- Security camera footage if available
- Mobile phone records
- Witness statements
- Accident and police reports
- Driver histories
- Data from onboard data recorders if the vehicles have them installed
- And more
Our legal team reviews every case carefully and then gathers all available evidence to prove that you're owed compensation. Then, we use it to negotiate a settlement offer that is fair for you. If we are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the other side, our team has no problem going to court and fighting there to get you what you deserve. We won't back down no matter what, and won't stop fighting until you get what you're owed.
And you don't have to worry about paying for our services up front - we deduct our fees from your settlement. This way, you can get the help that you need when you need it without worrying about where your money will come from.
What Damages Does A Settlement Cover?
A fair settlement should provide restitution that gets you back to the point you would have been in had the accident never occurred at all. As such, a fair settlement may include the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future medical bills
- Future potential lost wages
- Compensation for your pain and suffering
- Compensation for property damage
- Punitive damages
However, the big insurance companies and legal teams for the other side often push around victims and try to get them to agree to settlements that are far less than what is really owed. With our Lakeland motorcycle accident attorney on your side, this isn't an issue.
We work with economic and medical professionals to develop a clear picture of what an accident really costs you, and then we stand up to the bullies on the other side to make sure you get the kind of compensation that you are owed. If you've been hurt in an accident, contact us today to let us stand up to the other side and make them pay.
