Serious Personal Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

motorcycle graphicMost motorcyclists, prior to a motorcycle accident, live a very active and productive life. Both on and off the motorcycle, bikers tend to have a certain gusto for life. Combined with a strong work ethic and love of country, motorcyclists enjoy the freedom and liberties we have in the United States. Unfortunately, in just a matter of seconds, a motorcyclist’s life as he or she knows it can change quite quickly as a result of a motorcycle accident and the related personal injuries and damages. For many such motorcycle accidents, the personal injuries are quite serious in nature and have a lifetime impact on the motorcyclist as well as the family of the motorcyclist.

Serious personal injuries can include any one or more of the following: paralysis, brain damage, immobility, chronic pain, fractures, surgeries, loss of wages, loss of ability to work, neurological issues, and other damages / injuries. When a motorcyclist suffers a permanent injury through no fault of his or her own, there absolutely should be a claim or case pursued on behalf of the injured biker.

The availability and amount of insurance for the at-fault driver as well as the motorcyclist can have a big impact on the way and manner in which the claim or case is pursued. If insurance coverage is limited, that will raise a series of questions and issues as to how to best handle the claim and the high medical bills. Before statements are given or releases are signed, the injury victim and family should consult with an experienced Florida Motorcycle Accident for advice, guidance, and legal representation. There are far too many twists and turns for an injury victim to attempt to stand toe to toe with an experienced insurance claims adjuster who has a certain loyalty to the insurance carrier / company rather than the victim. Furthermore, when there are high medical bills, these will need to be negotiated depending on the amount of the settlement. If the injured motorcyclist had health insurance that paid for medical bills, then there most likely will be a lien or request for repayment by the health insurance company if there is a settlement. There are only a few pieces of the puzzle that constitutes a personal injury case or claim on behalf of a motorcyclist who suffered serious personal injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident.

In addition to the economic damages associated with a motorcycle accident in the form of medical bills and wage loss, there are also non-economic damages in the form of pain, suffering, mental anguish, and, yes, the loss of enjoyment of life. Remember, a member of the motorcycle community typically has a zest for life that is negatively and permanently impacted by serious personal injuries. It should be noted that there is no formula per se or statute that designates what is fair or reasonable compensation as to non-economic damages. It all depends on the case, facts, and, to a certain extent, the presentation of the case by an experienced Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorney.
