Motorcycle crashes can result in more severe injuries than automobile collisions. In a car, the driver and passengers are protected by the metal frame, airbags and seat belts. In a motorcycle accident, however, the riders are fully exposed. Although a helmet can protect an individual from severe face and brain injuries, a motorcycle rider may get road rash from sliding along the pavement, and receive numerous fractures from the impact, or even suffer from spinal cord injuries.
The harm caused in a motorcycle crash can be catastrophic or fatal. Motorcyclists can lose limbs in collisions or lose their ability to walk or move. In most motorcycle accidents, the bike is totaled, which means the cost of the repairs is higher than the value of the motorcycle itself. Many motorcyclists are killed by distracted drivers who fail to be aware of them and give them the proper room on the road.
In a motorcycle accident, you may suffer damage to your body and your property. A Tampa motorcycle accident victim is eligible to recuperate money to cover all of the costs associated with recovery. That means any fees paid for towing and storing the motorcycle, money lost because you have no transportation to get to work and any costs associated with replacing other damaged property, such as clothing or equipment, can be covered.
Current medical bills should be covered as well as any future medical bills associated with the injuries sustained in the accident. If you missed work while recovering from your injuries, you are entitled to have your salary recovered, and if you expect to miss work in the future because of your injuries, you may be entitled to coverage for those lost wages too.
The victims of motorcycle collisions are entitled to damages for unquantifiable anguish, such as pain, emotional distress and loss of quality of life. The victim’s spouse may also be eligible for recouping money related to the inability of the victim to perform the duties he or she could carry out before the accident. Our Tampa personal injury lawyer will make sure you receive all the compensation you’re due.
Insurance adjusters endeavor to pay out as little money as possible to victims because they don’t represent the injured party; they represent the insurance company. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle collision, you need to consult with a personal injury lawyer.
Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys are expertly trained to specialize in these types of claims. Retaining an attorney with years of experience will help you receive compensation for the damages suffered during the crash. You may be able to recover funds to pay for repairs to your motorcycle or to have it completely replaced.
Our lawyers are knowledgeable in dealing with all aspects of a motorcycle accident case. We can help you recoup the most money possible when dealing with insurance adjusters. If you feel that you’re not offered a satisfactory sum to pay for your medical bills, vehicle repairs and emotional suffering, the personal injury attorneys at our law firm will guide you in suing the careless driver who caused the accident.
If you don’t have a lawyer, insurance companies know you’re not likely to take the case to court yourself. But if you’re working with one of our skilled attorneys, the insurance company realizes it may have to pay large sums of money every month to its defense attorneys until the lawsuit is settled. Tampa insurance adjusters are aware that we file personal injury lawsuits ourselves, which frequently means you’ll receive more money from the settlement. They understand that we will take it to trial. The threat of a lawsuit from one of our skilled personal injury lawyers can lead the insurance company to provide a reasonable offer.
