In addition to recouping the cost of your medical care, you could also secure compensation for your pain and suffering or lost wages. Getting the compensation you deserve can be difficult on your own. Our motorcycle accident attorneys are here to help.
The damages available through a lawsuit will vary depending on the severity of your injuries. Another important factor is your choice of attorney. Let a Bonita Springs personal injury lawyer from our firm advise you on your legal options. Call us today to learn how we can help.
What Compensation Is Available After a Gulf Coast Motorcycle Accident?
The compensation you are entitled to recover following a motorcycle accident will depend on the nature of your losses. Our Bonita Springs motorcycle accident lawyers will fight for compensation for all the following damages.
For the survivors of many motorcycle accidents, the top priority in their personal injury case is compensation for their medical bills. The cost of medical care following an accident can be steep, especially for anyone facing chronic health issues related to the wreck.
It could be possible to recover damages based on the cost of your co-pays, surgical procedures, prescription medications, or even prosthetic limbs.
The costs of your medical care will depend on the severity of your injuries. For example, the costs associated with catastrophic injury, such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, will be much higher than a broken bone or lacerations.
Missing time from work due to injuries is never easy. Losing out on your source of income can devastate your budget, especially if you are dealing with unexpected medical bills from your accident. You could recover past and future lost wages through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
You can also recover compensation for any other expenses related to the accident. This could include:
- The costs of hiring childcare or someone to help around the house
- The expense related to renovating your home or vehicle to accommodate a disability
- Transportation costs to and from appointments related to your accident
Pain and Suffering
There could also be compensation available for your physical pain and suffering. While this type of compensation is subjective, many courts will award pain and suffering damages based on the extent of your medical bills.
Fatal Accident Damages
If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle wreck, please accept our sincere condolences. While taking legal action may be the furthest thing from your mind right now, getting the compensation you need to cover bills and new expenses can allow you the time you need to grieve.

How Our Injury Lawyers Could Resolve Your Motorcycle Accident Case
When it comes to helping you with your injury case, the most important way our legal team can help is by resolving it with a positive outcome. There are two ways we could reach a favorable outcome in your case: negotiating a monetary settlement or obtaining a favorable trial verdict.
Most motorcycle accident cases never go to trial. Even when the insurance company lowballs a motorcycle accident victim and refuses to negotiate, the threat of a lawsuit is typically enough for them to play fair and offer the compensation you need. The vast majority of the cases that never go to trial are ultimately resolved through a personal injury settlement.
While it is common to secure a settlement offer in a motorcycle accident case, not all offers are the same. Insurance companies frequently make lowball offers in an effort to avoid paying the actual value of your injury claim. These bullying tactics are very common when insurance companies deal with someone who is not represented by a motorcycle accident lawyer.
Give us a call to protect your case against insurers.
We Negotiate with the Claims Adjuster on Your Behalf
When we take on your case, we will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. The insurance adjusters know we will never bend to their bullying tactics and will pursue a fair offer. We have relied on our experience to secure countless settlements over the years.
Even though settlements are common, some motorcycle accidents inevitably go to trial. You can rest easy knowing that we will do the work of preparing your case for court. From selecting expert witnesses to preparing you for what to expect, our motorcycle accident attorneys will handle every aspect of taking your case to trial.
Along the way, we will continue to work towards a settlement with the other side. In Florida, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, in accordance withFlorida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a).

Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents
There are many different types of motorcycle accidents. Some injuries are more common with certain types of cases. This makes it helpful to understand the nature of these collisions before you pursue an injury case. Some common examples of motorcycle accidents include:
- Lane splitting.Lane splitting accidents involve collisions when a motorcycle travels between two lanes of stopped traffic.
- Fixed objects. Striking a fixed object is a common type of accident and usually occurs when a rider loses control of their motorcycle.
- Left-hand turns. Left-hand turns frequently result in motorcycle accidents, especially when oncoming motorists fail to notice a rider.
- Head-on collisions. As is the case withcar accidents, head-on collisions are one of the most devastating types of motorcycle accidents.
After your accident, your attorney will evaluate the nature of your crash for two important reasons. First, they will work to determine who was responsible for the accident. Second, they will identify the compensation you are entitled to recover. These determinations usually start by evaluating the type of accident that has occurred.
