You Can Pursue Motorcycle Accident Damages for Economic and Noneconomic Losses
If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, it’s crucial to understand that you are entitled to seek compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Motorcycle accident victims can suffer severe injuries, resulting in significant medical expenses, lost income, and physical, mental, and emotional suffering. You deserve compensation for your financial losses and the ways your injuries affect your quality of life.
Our Pahokee motorcycle accident lawyers can pursue the following:
- Economic damages. Economic damages are your actual out-of-pocket expenses. They include compensation for current and future medical bill payments, lost wages, earnings, employment benefits, lost future earning potential, and motorcycle repair or replacement costs. Economic damages may also include miscellaneous costs, such as rental car fees, medical travel expenses, household services, and necessary home and vehicle modifications.
- Non-economic damages. Non-economic damages provide monetary awards for pain, suffering, and inconvenience. We can seek compensation for depression, stress, anxiety, severe and chronic pain, permanent and disabling injuries, scarring, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment, reduced quality of life, and more.
As your representatives, we are committed to helping you navigate this challenging time with the responsive legal care you need to secure the compensation you deserve.
How Will Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Affect Your Case?
Understanding how Florida’s unique no-fault insurance laws impact your motorcycle accident case is crucial in seeking the compensation you deserve. Florida’s no-fault insurance laws usually mandate that injured parties turn first to their personal injury protection (PIP) coverage after a crash, regardless of who caused the accident.
According to Florida Statutes § 627.732, however, motorcyclists are exempt from the no-fault system because it only applies to four-wheeled vehicles. This exemption means injured motorcycle riders can pursue an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party without meeting an injury threshold. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today to learn more about how we can hold at-fault parties responsible.
Proving Your Right To Motorcycle Accident Compensation
Depending on the circumstances of your collision, the liable party could be a negligent driver, property owner, manufacturer, or mechanic. Our motorcycle accident attorneys serving Pahokee will do the work needed to prove the at-fault party. We can collect evidence to support your compensation claim, which may include the following:
- Medical records
- Police reports
- Photographs from the scene
- Crash debris
- Pictures of your injuries and motorcycle damages
- Eyewitness statements
- Available dashcam, surveillance, or cell phone video of the accident
- Expert testimony
- Invoices, receipts, bills, estimates, and additional monetary proof of your losses
Our motorcycle accident attorneys can also use the evidence we collect to defend you against allegations that you acted negligently or wrongfully and contributed to your crash. Insurance companies or opposing counsel may try this tactic to reduce or negate your claim. However, we can talk to the insurance company for you and provide frequent case updates to secure the fair compensation you deserve.
Trust Us to Manage Your Case Timelines
Florida Statutes § 95.11 establishes a statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. This time frame is crucial for court proceedings and significantly influences your insurance claims. Settling your claim within this period is vital as it maintains your leverage in negotiating fair compensation.
However, at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we understand that your primary focus should be recovery, not navigating complex legal timelines. We prioritize managing your case’s critical deadlines and details for you, so you can focus on your recovery, knowing that the legal aspects of your case are in capable hands. Contact us today, and rest assured that we will work to safeguard your rights and interests every step of the way.
You Worry About Getting Better. We Take Care Of Everything Else!
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we recognize the unique risks motorcycle riders like you face on the road. As a motorcycle rider, you are more vulnerable to severe and catastrophic injuries in a crash without the same protections as occupants of passenger vehicles. This vulnerability often results in more severe and catastrophic injuries in the event of an accident.
If you suffered a severe bodily injury, it is vital you recover the monetary resources you need for your current and ongoing medical treatment and other care needs, such as:
- Head, back, and shoulder injuries
- Neck injuries and whiplash injuries
- Severe cuts, scrapes, and contusions (“road rash”)
- Broken bones
- Loss of a limb
- Facial injuries, including eye injuries and dental injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries and organ damage
Our legal team is committed to ensuring you receive the necessary financial resources to cover your current and ongoing medical treatments and any other care requirements. Trust us to handle every aspect of your case with diligence, allowing you to focus on what’s most important – your recovery.
