Motorcycle riders can become accident victims when other motorists choose to drive recklessly. Though Sarasota can be an idyllic setting for motorcyclists, it presents the same sorts of danger that motorcyclists face when other motorists do not exercise necessary caution. You or your loved one may be entitled to collect compensation from one or more liable parties, and a Sarasota motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to negotiate on your behalf.
Hiring a lawyer may allow you to avoid additional stress and focus on your recovery. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 to find out how we go the extra mile for clients and may be able to serve you or your loved one.

Motorists Must Uphold Their Duty of Care
Every motorist on the roads of Sarasota is beholden to a duty of care. This duty of care may generally mean that the motorist must:
- Act with caution
- Drive defensively
- Obey the laws of the road
- Be considerate of other motorists
- Avoid engaging in dangerous behavior
Drivers who do not uphold their duty of care to other motorists, including motorcyclists, risk causing an accident and being liable for the harm that they cause. According to the American Bar Association (ABA), a motorist does not have to intentionally cause an accident in order to be negligent.
Multiple forms of negligence may have contributed to your accident. Your lawyer may make the case that:
- A motorist, or another type of defendant, owed you a duty of care
- The defendant did not honor their duty of care
- The defendant’s violation of their duty of care caused your accident
- Your accident has caused you harm
As part of their service to you, your lawyer will document your losses and calculate the settlement that you deserve because of those losses.

Losses You May Suffer as a Motorcycle Accident Victim
Motorcyclists face a significantly higher rate of injury and death than non-motorcyclists, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) explains. It is likely that you or a loved one suffered an injury, and possibly fatal injury if you were involved in a motorcycle accident.
Being injured can cause the following losses:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Diminished earning power
- Loss of physical abilities (temporarily or permanently)
- Healthcare expenses
- Damage to your motorcycle
The overall negative effect of being injured could lead you to develop mental health problems. You may experience recurring traumatic thoughts, have difficulty sleeping, experience personality changes, engage in substance abuse or self-harm, and suffer in other ways.
Your lawyer will seek compensation for all the losses you have experienced because of your motorcycle accident. If you have lost a loved one, then they will seek compensation for funeral costs, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other types of harm that can come from a wrongful death.
