Every driver on the road has a duty to obey traffic laws to keep others safe, and motorcycle manufacturers, as well as government entities that are in charge of roads, have a duty to ensure that motorcycle parts and roads are built and maintained to acceptable standards for the safety of all. When you have suffered a motorcycle accident injury, there are numerous steps to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

It’s critical to find a highly experienced personal injury attorney to help guide you through the motorcycle accident lawsuit process. Insurance companies are known for giving low compensation for accidents, and this is where a Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer will assist you in making sure all your injuries and damages are accounted for. Compensation for your injuries can include pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income and benefits, property damage, and other out-of-pocket expenses. A motorcycle accident law firm will help you organize the evidence gathered from the accident scene, prove negligence from the wrongdoing that caused the accident, and help resolve your case so you can focus on getting better.

The motorcycle accident lawsuit compensation total depends on the extent of your injuries and how permanent they are. A motorcycle accident lawyer in Tampa will help you build a stronger case. While most motorcycle cases settle, if your case does go to trial, your personal injury attorney will be by your side to help with any challenges that the at-fault party’s insurance company and their legal team present. Recklessness, carelessness, or negligent behavior causes too many motorcycle accidents in Florida and nationwide.

Data and studies show that motorcycle accidents often cause head and brain injuries, neck and back pain, and joint and ligament trauma. More severe accidents can cause paralysis, amputations, broken bones and fractures, burns and cuts from road rash, disfigurement, or wrongful death. As your personal injury attorney further investigates who or what is at fault, their legal team will help calculate treatment for your injuries. According to the Motorcycle Legal Foundation, the average cost for motorcycle accident medical treatment is between $6,000 and $30,000, and up to $4 million for severe brain or spinal cord trauma medical care for the rest of your life.

Motorcycle accident cases involve the comparative negligence rule to determine the degree of fault, including if you are partially at fault because of not following state motorcycle laws. Each motorcycle accident has a unique set of circumstances, and how your injuries have affected you will influence the compensation. Your Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer will review your insurance coverage policy limits to maximize your compensation.

The motorcycle accident lawsuit process can take a few months to a few years depending on the extent of your injuries and compensation. It is vital to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident as individuals have only four years from the date of the crash in Florida to bring a motorcycle accident lawsuit.
