Damages You Can Recover After a Motorcycle Accident in Brandon
The occupants of a motorcycle are far more likely to sustain serious or fatal injuries than the occupants of a vehicle when they collide. If a negligent driver caused your accident, their insurance will cover the costs of your ongoing medical treatments.
Our law firm will also help you recover financial compensation for the following:
- Past, current, and future medical bills
- Past, current, and future losses of income
- Rehab, therapy, and assistive medical devices
- All treatment-related travel expenses
- Repair or replacement of your motorcycle
These are economic damages that are easily proven and assigned a value with receipts, bills, and estimates. You can also recover compensation for the following types of non-economic damages:
- Physical disabilities
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We will collect additional evidence that proves the value of your recoverable non-economic damages. Specific family members can also recover wrongful death damages for the accident-related loss of a loved one. Our team will ensure the appropriate family members file a wrongful death action.
How Florida Law Affects the Timing of Your Recoverable Damages
Florida Statute § 95.11 determines how much time you have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If your case is not settled out of court, the state generally allows:
- Up to four years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit
- Up to two years from the date of a loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit
Complying with the statute of limitations is critical to your fight to recover damages. It can also be difficult to comply with since some of the circumstances of your accident can alter the filing deadline. It is complicated. The best way to ensure you do not run out of time to pursue damages is to let our motorcycle accident attorney handle it for you.
