Florida’s warm, sunny weather permits motorcyclists to ride year-round. Motorcycles are fun, stylish, and cost-effective means of transportation, however, it is no secret that they are also dangerous. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Florida motorcycle accident attorneys to learn more about how we can help you get back on your feet again.
What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle accidents happen for various reasons, and sometimes, they are completely unavoidable. Accidents happen due to negligent road designs, poor road conditions, severe weather conditions, and more. However, motorcycle accidents are most commonly caused by driver negligence. Some of the most prevalent types of driver negligence we see on the road today include texting while driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, and distracted driving as a whole.
How do I know if I qualify for compensation after being injured in a motorcycle accident?
To qualify for financial compensation, you will have to hire an attorney who is capable of proving that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. While you may think you can do so yourself, the claims process is oftentimes very complicated, and you cannot fight greedy insurance companies on your own. Our firm will work to obtain and present evidence as convincingly as possible to win you the compensation you deserve.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida?
Each state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to personal injury claims. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, individuals will have four years from the date of their accident to sue a negligent party for their injuries. Of course, four years sounds like a lot of time, however, it is true that the sooner you bring your case to our attention, the better. We are ready to begin fighting for the compensation you need as soon as you ask. Do not delay.
