Common Injuries Involved in a Florida Motorcycle Accident
A motorcycle’s inherent safety limitations expose the rider to increased risks of personal injury, mainly when other motorists fail to respect the rights of motorcycle drivers on the road. The motorcycle accident attorneys at the Shiner Law Group identify several major areas of personal injury commonly associated with motorcycle collisions:
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
- Broken bones, bruising, lacerations, internal bleeding, amputation, and disfigurement.
- Spinal cord injuries.
If you or your loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, seek immediate medical attention, as forgoing treatment may not only worsen minor concerns but can damage a personal injury claim’s financial recovery potential.
Pursuing a Motorcycle Accident Claim
As a comparative negligence state, Florida requires victims to show that injuries sustained occurred as a direct result of another person’s negligence, such as making an illegal turn at an intersection; however, while fault can be attributed to several parties depending on their breach in the legal duty of care, claimants do not need to prove a duty of care existed. Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to shift fault and will argue a motorcyclist’s negligence contributed to the accident, especially when riders forwent a helmet despite operating within the confines of the law.
Motorcycle accident victims can bring a legal cause of action against a negligible party within four years in the state of Florida, or two years when wrongful death is involved, for pecuniary losses including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, medical expenses, disability, lost income and benefits, reduced earning capacity, and a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.
