As a motorcyclist, you know just how dangerous the road can be if other drivers do not drive safely. Unfortunately, not everyone upholds their duty of care, and motorcyclists sometimes pay the price. Our Opa-locka motorcycle accident lawyers work to ensure that you don’t pay any more than you already have. While the other party in your case can’t undo what they did, they can and should pay for your damages. You shouldn’t be punished for valuing your freedom. They should be punished for causing you harm. Let the Opa-locka personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine help you get the money you deserve.
How Does a Motorcycle Injury Lawyer Help You Get Damages in Opa-Locka?
To get your motorcycle accident damages, the our lawyers perform a number of tasks—we investigate, we fill out paperwork, we answer calls, we check in with your recovery, we talk to your doctors, we double-check insurance coverage, and we don’t let you agree to anything less than what your case is worth.
Our Work Looks Different for Each Client
Our Opa-locka motorcycle collision lawyers act on your behalf. Sometimes, that means setting up appointments for you to make your life easier. Sometimes, it means representing you in interactions with adjusters or the driver who hit you. It can even mean we speak for you in official interactions so that you don’t say something that could be used against you.
When we act on your behalf, we act in your best interest. The other parties involved in your case can’t say the same.
Damages Also Look Different for Each Client
What damages do you deserve? The answer to that is another question: What have you lost? Each person has a different answer:
- Health – You deserve damages for any healthcare losses, including paying for hospitalizations, surgeries, prescriptions, equipment, or rehabilitative care.
- Income – Whether you earn a monthly salary, an hourly wage, a per-gig fee, or commissions, your lost income is compensable.
- Career – Motorcycle injuries could cut down your ability to earn an income. Reduced earning capacity damages can cover the gaps.
- Hobbies – Whatever activities you can no longer do after your accident, like not being able to ride a motorcycle again, should be included in your personalized damages.
- Well-being – Pain and suffering compensation is available to cover the trauma of your accident, injuries, and recovery.
- Peace of mind – Everyone copes with injuries differently, so if you developed anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other mental health conditions, we seek specific damages.
- Independence – If your injuries affected your ability to take care of yourself, forcing you to sacrifice some of your independence, you deserve compensation.
- Family members – Our Opa-locka wrongful death lawyers can pursue damages for a lost loved one, paying for medical bills, lost income, funeral costs, and grief.
Whatever you lost, the team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine is prepared to seek comprehensive damages for you.
What Else Does a Lawyer Do in an Opa-locka Motorcycle Accident Case?
Below are the basic steps we take when acting as your representative in an insurance claim or lawsuit following a motorcycle collision. Within each step, we continue to keep you in mind, altering what services we provide based on what you need.
We start your case with a free evaluation during which we go over the facts of your case, the possible causes of your accident, and the options ahead of you for getting damages.
You can also use this time to go over the track record of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine. You can hear personal stories of past cases both directly from us and by checking out our client testimonials. We are more than willing to talk about our previous work, awards, and experience.
To make keeping in contact with us easier, we provide you with your lawyer’s cell phone number once you hire us. You can reach out at any time with additional questions.
Once you take us on, we work on gathering information on your motorcycle accident. That could include:
- Camera footage
- Photos from the site
- Witness statements
- Police reports
- Medical information
- Expert testimony
- Accident reconstruction
- Debris analysis
All of this can help us in several areas of your case—gauging the losses you suffered that are eligible for compensation, determining what negligence caused the crash, and identifying who was responsible.
Motorcycle crashes can happen because of negligent drivers, faulty auto parts, even poor road maintenance. We run through every possible combination of factors that could have caused your motorcycle collision to identify who is liable:
- Passenger car drivers
- Truck drivers
- Bus drivers
- Other motorcyclists
- Motorcycle manufacturers
- Motor vehicle manufacturers
- Auto shops
- Government entities
Once we know who we’re up against, we start building a case and providing terms for a settlement. We might build multiple cases against multiple parties.
The fate of settlement negotiations depends on the parties involved. Are they willing to settle? Do they dispute who was at-fault? Are they blaming you at all? Are they unwilling to consider all your damages and want to settle before we even know your losses? We can roll with any of these scenarios, adapting our case strategy.
If, after some back-and-forth and with the statute of limitations nearing, all parties can’t agree, we can move forward with a lawsuit.
Filing a Lawsuit
Depending on the case, we may file a personal injury lawsuit, a wrongful death lawsuit, or even a bad faith insurance lawsuit. Our motorcycle accident lawyers can determine which fits your south Miami case. We compile evidence, craft arguments, coach you on what to expect, and continue handling all the paperwork and court documents.
We also continue to negotiate for a settlement even after we file a lawsuit, and most cases settle out of court. However, our lawyers have experience representing a case at trial and aren’t deterred by going to court to get damages.
