Motorcycle Accident Case Value
One of the most common questions we get from clients who have been involved in motorcycle accidents is, “What is the value of my claim?” Of course, every case is different, but certainly a good starting off point to consider is what your medical bills are related to your injuries in that motorcycle accident.
From there, an experienced attorney will be able to raise the value of that case based on several factors; first and foremost, would be pain and suffering. That’s when a jury will generally award you for what you had to suffer in relation to your accident, on top of physical injuries and medical bills, but there are other factors to consider – if you lost time from work because of your motorcycle accident, if you lost the ability to earn future income because of your motorcycle accident, any special accommodations you’ve had to make, the impact on your family.
There are several things that could affect the value of your case, and an experienced attorney will be able to raise the value of your case to its maximum potential. That’s why it’s critically important that you contact us at the Victory Law Firm if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident.
Motorcycle Accident Case Timeline
We were recently speaking with a new client who was involved in a motorcycle accident and one of his first questions was, “How long is this case going to take to settle?” It’s a common question. Every case is certainly different. If injuries are more substantial in one case than another, certainly that case is going to take a little bit longer to settle.
The attorneys here at the Victory Law Firm pursue all our cases aggressively and quickly. Sometimes there’s a need to file that case into litigation, which is to say file a lawsuit and prepare to go to trial. Obviously, those cases can take some time. The time it takes for your case to settle will be dependent, first and foremost, on the extent of your injuries and the subsequent treatment that you might need. Again, from there and that point on, once the case is in our hands, we fight aggressively and quickly to resolve your claim. Please reach out to us here at the Victory Law Firm if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident.
Differences Between Motorcycle Accident and Car Accident Cases
Here in Florida we have a tremendous amount of motorcycle enthusiasts, thanks to our year-round beautiful weather, and sometimes bad things happen. People sometimes wonder what the difference is between motorcycle accidents and auto accidents. They’re actually quite similar. You still have the four-year statute of limitations, which means you have four years to file a lawsuit. If you’ve been involved in an accident involving your motorcycle and it’s been within four years, you still have the ability to make that claim if you have not already.
Motorcycle accidents are not much different than automobile accidents in that we would be making a claim against the at-fault party. Overwhelmingly, motorcycle accidents involve vehicles who strike motorcycles. central Florida, in particular, is home to so many tourists who do not know the roads, are unfamiliar with them, aren’t watching out for motorcyclists, are distracted and have other things going on – screaming kids in the background – so we have a disproportionate amount of injuries and fatalities here in central Florida due to automobiles impacting motorcycles, as well as the disproportion amount of elderly drivers that we have in central Florida who tend to be involved in more car accidents than other demographics.
The type of case that you have will very much mirror what an automobile accident is like if you’ve been involved in one of those before, but there are key differences. It’s very important that you don’t hire an attorney who is only experienced in automobile accidents. It’s very important that you hire an attorney who is experienced in handling motorcycle accidents specifically. Please reach out to the Victory Law Firm if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident here in Florida.
When choosing a motorcycle accident attorney, it’s very important that you choose one that has significant experience in this field and is willing and able to take your case to trial if necessary. Please do reach out to the attorneys here at the Victory Law Firm if you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident and we’d be happy to speak with you.
