Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Unlike the occupants of a passenger car, motorcyclists typically suffer more serious injuries. This should not be surprising, since motorcyclists much are less well protected in a collision, often suffering a direct impact with a vehicle. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones, particularly in the arms and legs
  • Scrapes, cuts, lacerations, and abrasions
  • Pinched nerves
  • Dislocated joints, such as the knee or hip
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis

After any motorcycle accident in Kendall, seek immediate medical treatment such as at Kendall Regional, Baptist Hospital of Miami or another nearby hospital. Prompt medical care and treatment can often make the difference between life and death and gives you the best chance of fully recovering from the collision.

Available Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim

If you can prove that the other driver was legally responsible for the crash, you might receive financial compensation for your injuries. At Gerson & Schwartz, our clients have received money damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses, including transportation to the hospital, surgery, hospital overnights, doctor’s visits, prescription and over-the-counter drugs, and assistive devices
  • Future medical expenses, if your injury requires ongoing treatment
  • Lost wages, if you could not work while you recovered from your injuries
  • Lost future wages, if your injury keeps you from returning to your job or from working at all

In addition, our clients have received compensation for non-economic injuries. Although you probably want your old body back, the best a court can do is give you money for the following:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress - including depression, anxiety, fear, anger, and irritability

To find out how much your injuries are worth, schedule a free consultation with a Kendall, Florida motorcycle accident lawyer today. Generally, the amount of damages our clients receive will depend on the severity of their injuries as well as how well-documented they are. For example, clients who carefully document their pain and emotional distress by keeping daily diary entries are better positioned to prove their non-economic damages than other clients. Clients who keep copies of medical records and bills also will strengthen their cases.

Kendall Wrongful Death Motorcycle Accident Claims

When a loved one dies, the estate’s personal representative can bring a lawsuit for money damages, which will go to family members. You can receive compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit for:

  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • The value of support and services the deceased provided
  • Loss of guidance, protection, and companionship
  • Emotional distress due to the loss
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Any medical expenses paid for your loved one

These damages are somewhat speculative, so it is difficult to forecast how much you might receive in a wrongful death action. Nevertheless, many of our clients have been successful in these types of claims, with one recent case settling for $2.5 million dollars.

Avoid Delay: Why Your Motorcycle Accident Claim Can Be Time Barred

Florida law does not give accident victims an unlimited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit for their injuries or wrongful death. Most legal claims in Florida are subject to statutes of limitations. Most motorcycle accident are subject to a four year window from the date of the crash. If you wait too long, then your claim can be time barred which will mean you cannot file a lawsuit and will not be entitled to receive financial compensation or hold the negligent driver legally accountable in court.

Wrongful death lawsuits including those based on a motorcycle accident have a shorter deadline. In Florida, the personal representative only has two years from the date of death to bring a lawsuit. If you are worried about these important deadlines, contact one of our Kendall, Florida motorcycle accident attorneys as soon as possible. Don’t wait and contact us at 305-371-6000 or toll free at 877-475-2905.
