Why Should I Hire a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
If you are considering whether it is worth hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer, we can help you with that decision. There are several circumstances where we would strongly recommend hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer to help you make a claim to get the compensation that you deserve. It may be worth hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer if:
- You or someone you know has suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident.
- You have no previous experience completing an insurance claim against your insurance company or filing a lawsuit.
- You are not trained as a lawyer and lack an understanding of Florida law and legal processes.
- You would like to present the strongest possible case for compensation.
If any of these apply to your case, we would recommend that you seek help from a motorcycle accident lawyer. However, it is entirely up to you whether you use their help to make a claim. You may wish to seek compensation from insurance companies alone or file your own lawsuit. This is perfectly acceptable. However, it is proven that accident injury victims are more likely to get the maximum amount of money they deserve from their settlement with the help of a personal injury attorney.
What Is the Average Payout for a Motorcycle Accident?
Victims of motorcycle accidents often wonder what payout they could get if they decide to file a claim against their insurance company. Accident injury victims typically experience a considerable amount of medical expenses and lost wages. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to receive damages. It is difficult to estimate the average payout in damages that victims receive, as each motorcycle accident case is different. If you call our law firm for a free consultation, one of our attorneys will be able to review your case and help determine what sort of payout you could expect if you file your claim.
Types of Damages in Motorcycle Claims
There are many damages that you may be able to claim if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident. The damages will differ depending on whether you were riding your motorcycle and at-fault or just an innocent victim. However, the following damages are common to victims of most motorcycle accident lawsuits:
Victims of motorcycle accidents are frequently left with serious injuries. Regardless of the severity of the injury in your case, the necessary medical treatment needed to aid that injury can be very costly. You can therefore file claims against your insurance company for the cost of emergency transportation, surgery, hospital stays, physical therapy, doctor’s appointments, and much more.
Sometimes, victims of motorcycle accidents may experience injuries so severe that they are unable to work. It is not uncommon for victims of motorcycle accidents to lose money because they need to take time off to recover. This can impact a victim’s life greatly. You can therefore claim for these lost wages. Additionally, you can claim for wages if you suffer a reduced earning capacity once you go back to work.
Pain and Suffering
The injuries that you suffer as a result of your accident can be incredibly painful. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV) has reported that there were 7,849 motorcycle injuries caused by motorcycle accidents in Florida in 2018. It is possible for you to seek compensation against your insurance company if your injuries have affected your day-to-day life. It difficult to quantify pain and suffering, and insurance companies often refuse to pay victims for their pain and suffering. This is why it is worth seeking the guidance of a skilled lawyer.
Seeking Justice May Take Time
Filing an insurance claim or lawsuit does typically take a significant amount of time. In theory, it should be a simple and straightforward process, but it is common for many cases to hit several snags. A lawyer will be able to deal with these issues for you so that you don’t have to worry.
