Fort Myers Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims

The most difficult issue for a victim of a motorcycle accident is the ability to fully recover from injuries sustained in the crash. Our duty is to overcome the opposition that will come from the insurance company and to get your claim paid at a reasonable level, whether in a settlement or through a verdict at trial.

The facts of the case may seem simple, and it is clear that a negligent driver is responsible, but efforts to reduce your claim can be expected. It takes a legal professional that is highly skilled in negotiating settlements and pursuing justice in court to get the job done.

The cost of replacing or repairing your motorcycle can run into tens of thousands of dollars and the medical care and treatment often will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars or more, even after a collision at slow speeds.

Our founding Fort Myers injury attorney is a motorcycle enthusiast and is personally committed to helping riders recover fair and full compensation after an accident. You can expect personal one-on-one service and dedicated representation if we take on your case. Searching for a lawyer for motorcycle accidents in Fort Myers, FL?

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Experiencing a motorcycle crash and surviving can be quite an ordeal; sadly, it is often only the beginning for wrongfully injured bikers. Following a serious crash, you may have to secure medical treatment, repair or replace your bike, request time off work to recover, file insurance claims, and more. Yet, if you don’t take care of certain things right away, your motorcycle accident lawsuit may not be as successful.

If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, take care of the following as soon as possible:

  • Seek medical attention if you haven’t already. Many injuries can take a few hours or even days to start showing symptoms, so the best way to ensure your health and safety is to have a thorough medical examination as soon as possible. Medical records will also help back up your insurance and personal injury claims.
  • Collect evidence related to your crash, such as photographs and video footage of the accident scene. Make sure also to save any documentation related to your accident, such as email correspondence, medical bills, and receipts.
  • Do not accept fault for the crash or even apologize to others involved out of politeness. Make sure not to blame any other drivers for the accident either. The police, insurance companies, and lawyers involved in your claim will establish fault.
  • Contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer for legal advice. Most motorcycle accident attorneys offer free consultations, so take advantage of one to get a better idea of where your case stands. A lawyer can help you establish whether you have a viable claim, who is at fault, and how much your claim is worth.

If you choose to hire an attorney, they will build your claim by collecting evidence on your behalf. Your lawyer will also fight for your right to compensation, whether in negotiations or in court.

What Can I Be Compensated for If I’ve Been Injured in a Motorcycle Crash?

You can be reimbursed for any losses you have suffered as a result of your accident, both economic (like medical expenses) and non-economic (such as emotional trauma). As long as you and your attorney can prove you were not at fault for your accident and you suffered compensable damages, you should be able to receive fair compensation (which is why it’s so important to save those receipts!).

The compensation you may be awarded if you have been in a motorcycle accident includes:

  • All past and future medical expenses deemed necessary and reasonable, including hospitalization, prescription medication, surgery, physical therapy, counseling, necessary quality of life changes, assistive devices, and ongoing care
  • Lost wages from earnings you missed out on if you had to take time off work or quit your job to recover
  • Pain and suffering endured because of the crash, such as mental anguish, embarrassment, emotional trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more
  • Funeral and burial expenses as well as other relevant compensation in the event of wrongful death
