The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that the fatality rate
in motorcycle accidents in 27 times greater than that associated with
collisions involving other types of motor vehicles. Almost 4,700 motorcyclists
were killed in 2015 in the United States, according to the National Highway
Safety Administration. Thousands more motorcyclists were injured in motorcycle
accidents during the same time period, oftentimes seriously so. A considerable
percentage of these accidents are caused by the negligence of someone else.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, or lost a family member
is that type of collision, you need to understand your rights and interests.
This includes your right to retain a skilled, experienced, dedicated Tampa
motorcycle accident lawyer in the immediate aftermath of a collision.
Tampa Motorcycle Accident Personal Injury Case
The type and extent of financial recovery you may obtain in a Tampa motorcycle
accident case depends on the specific facts and circumstances of the matter.
With that noted, there are some types of losses, damages, and personal
injuries that typically are compensable following a Florida motorcycle
accident. These include:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish
- permanent disability
- property damage
- lost income
A Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000
will fight to ensure that you obtain the full amount of compensation due
to you in your case. For example, you are likely to experience the need
for ongoing medical care and treatment. This may come in the form of physical
therapy and occupational therapy. You are entitled to compensation for
these future medical bills and expenses.
Similarly, you may endure chronic pain as a result of the injuries you
sustained in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else's negligence.
This represents another type of foreseeable loss for which you are entitled
to obtain financial compensation.
You may be unable to return to work for an extended period of time. Lost
wages will continue to mount. Making sure you obtain proper compensation
for lost income is another area in which a Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer
from our firm will fight for you.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, specifically the
actions of the party that caused the collision, you may be entitled to
what are known in Florida as punitive damages. Punitive damages represent
extra compensation to you in your case. In addition, punitive damages
are designed to punish the party responsible for the accident for particularly
reckless or egregious conduct.
