It is important to place a value on the cost of your motorcycle accident. This helps us evaluate any potential settlement offers while also ensuring that any insurance payments appropriately cover your damages.

- Property damage
- Rehabilitative costs

Understanding Florida’s Motorcycle Safety Expectations
Florida expects motorcyclists to follow the same laws as automobile drivers do. However, they also expect car operators to exercise extreme caution when driving near a motorcyclist. Motorcyclists do not have the same safety features and are often subject to more severe injuries.
Common Causes of Florida Motorcycle Accident
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can occur from many different causes.
These are a few of the most common:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Aggressive driving
- Poor weather
- Failure to follow or lack of knowledge of Florida’s road laws
Both the motorcyclist and the automobile driver can be at fault for any of these common causes. Additionally, one drivers’ negligent action such as distracted driving paired with the other driver’s aggressive driving can result in a disastrous situation.
Fortunately, under Florida’s pure comparative negligence doctrine, we can still seek compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries as long as another party holds the majority of the fault.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
The injuries from a motorcycle accident are often significant and may require extensive medical care and extended time away from work. Suffering a motorcycle accident can leave you with the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Back or neck injury
- Facial injury
- Loss of limbs
- Wrongful death
It is also possible to suffer from emotional damages as a result of a motorcycle accident. The overwhelming stress of dealing with a new injury and the inability to work can be difficult. You might also experience extreme pain and suffering from the injury. Additionally, you might be afraid to partake in an activity that you once enjoyed.
Stay Within Florida’s Statute Of Limitations
It is important to take legal action as soon as possible to avoid losing your compensation eligibility. Florida requires that we file all motorcycle accident cases within four years from the date of the accident.
While this might initially seem like plenty of time, keep in mind that it takes time to investigate and build your case. Additionally, insurance companies may have different time limits in which you can collect your no-fault benefits. If a motorcycle accident was the cause of a loved one’s death, then that time limit is even shorter.
Avoid losing out on the compensation that you deserve. Call us today at The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733.
