Recoverable Damages in an Ormond Beach Motorcycle Accident
We may pursue damages for any cost that you’ve had because of your accident. These could include:
- Emergency care
- Prolonged treatment of injuries
- Lost income, benefits, tips, bonuses
- Reduced capacity to earn
- Damage to your motorcycle
We may also pursue damages for things that may not have a financial cost but have affected you, nonetheless. We realize that for many people, a motorcycle accident is not just a financial inconvenience but a genuinely jarring event that can affect them mentally, which is why we may also pursue damages for:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Scarring and disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Funeral/burial costs, loss of consortium, loss of guidance (in a wrongful death case)
Why Hire Our Attorney for an Ormond Beach Motorcycle Accident?
We offer responsive legal care for Florida’s injured. Our attorney can review your Ormond Beach motorcycle and determine what happened, how it happened, and who’s responsible for causing it.
Florida requires car owners to have personal injury protection (PIP).
It is also called “no fault” insurance, and under this kind of policy, an insurer pays policyholders’ medical bills and lost wages, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
Florida motorcyclists, however, do not have to have PIP insurance. Instead, riders will have to file a claim with the insurance company of the person who hit them to recover their accident damages.
We Can Deal With the Insurer for You
Insurers may not want to settle your case for the fair compensation you deserve. We can protect your rights and assess your damages before negotiating with the insurer for your award. An insurer may try to say you caused the accident or that your injuries aren’t serious.
We will build your case and:
Investigate Your Accident and Collect Evidence
We will review the accident and gather proof to show you weren’t responsible for the accident. We will aim to show the extent of the damage.
This could include looking at security camera footage, looking at dashboard camera footage, talking with witnesses, looking at local traffic laws, diagramming the layout of the road where the accident occurred, and completing other tasks as we prepare your case.
Under What Circumstances Would We Settle an Ormond Beach Motorcycle Collision?
A settlement is an agreed-upon amount of money the liable party pays to the accident victim. Most civil cases, such as motorcycle accidents, settle outside of court.
We would settle if the amount of money we negotiate is satisfactory for you to pay for your expenses that were caused by the accident. If we cannot settle with the insurer, we can prepare and file your case with the civil court and seek recovery for you in court.

How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit After a Motorcycle Crash in Ormond Beach?
The filing deadline differs according to the type of lawsuit you want to file. If you want to file a personal injury suit, the statute of limitations in Florida is generally four years, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a).
If you’re suing because a loved one died in an Ormond Beach motorcycle accident, then you’d likely be filing a wrongful death suit. The statute of limitations in Florida for such cases is generally two years, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d). We can advise you on the timeline for your case during a free consultation.
