MOTORCYCLE PASSENGER INJURIES
Were You Hit by a Car While on Your Friend’s Bike?
When you’ve been hurt in a Florida motorcycle accident, it can have a significant impact on your life. You have injuries that may require extensive medical treatment. Your medical bills add up quickly, but your income goes down because you can’t work. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Farrow & Pulice, P.A. can help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
Minor injuries seen in motorcycle accidents include road rash, muscle sprains and cuts and bruises. But motorcycle accidents often cause much more serious injuries. These can include broken bones, internal injuries, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. In some cases, accident victims are left with a permanent disability.
People injured in a motorcycle accident can suffer damages that include current and future medical expenses, lost wages and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. Motorcyclists who have been injured in an accident can file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. But what if you were a passenger on a motorcycle?
As a passenger, you have the right to seek compensation from all parties responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. That may include the person who was operating the motorcycle you were on. You may be reluctant to pursue compensation, because this person may be a friend, family member or partner.
But it’s important to remember that you are not getting the person into trouble. All you are doing is getting the insurance company to meet its obligation to pay compensation to the victims of an accident. If you were hurt in an accident, you deserve compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
The experience that gets results in Florida
Our firm has been handling motorcycle accident cases for decades – many involving passengers who were injured. We can help guide you through the process of recovering compensation. Our attorneys will calculate the total damages you have suffered as a result of the accident. Then we focus on getting the best possible outcome for your case.
We investigate the accident to find out what really happened and determine which parties were at fault. This involves reviewing all documentation, including accident reports and medical records. It involves identifying and interviewing witnesses. And if needed, we will consult accident reconstruction experts.
Our team builds the strongest case possible, one that insurance companies have to take seriously. Many times, when insurance companies see that we are prepared to fight them in court, they agree to settlement negotiations. But we are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
