If you ride a motorcycle, you are likely very familiar with the risks and responsibilities that come with this type of vehicle. While they can be more exciting and even more convenient than other vehicles, motorcycles can be difficult to operate and there are state laws that apply to riders that do not apply to other motorists. Further, riders are exposed to the elements anytime they are on Florida roads and can get seriously injured in a crash.
Motorcyclists typically understand these things and take it all into consideration whenever they ride. However, being aware and taking steps to be safe aren’t always enough and riders can be involved in an accident. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it can be crucial to seek legal support and explore your options for filing a civil claim.
We know that a lawsuit may not be your top priority or even a consideration in the aftermath of a motorcycle crash, particularly if someone is severely injured or killed. However, it can be crucial to keep the possibility of a civil claim in mind as the damages stemming from these types of crashes can be enormous.
Financially speaking, the medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitative costs and other related expenses can add up very quickly. Seemingly overnight, an accident victim and/or his or her family members can find themselves overwhelmed by the stress and fear of huge financial obligations.
There are also emotional damages that can be suffered after a crash and they can also be substantial, from loss of support, guidance and consortium to pain and suffering.
It can be difficult to truly appreciate the extent of damages suffered in a serious motorcycle crash and many people just want to recover and move forward.
