What To Know About Our Brandon, FL Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Riding a motorcycle in Florida can be a truly incredible experience. With the wind in your hair and the sun at your back making for a perfect temperature, and the views–from coastlines to lakes–topping off the sensation of wonder, we understand why we have a lot of motorcyclists in our state. But as great as riding a motorcycle may be, motorcycling is an activity that’s much more dangerous than just driving a car. In fact, motorcyclists are disproportionately at risk of being severely harmed or killed when a crash occurs, as compared to drivers of motor vehicles.

If you’ve been severely harmed in a motorcycle crash–or if, tragically, you’ve lost a family member in a motorcycle accident–there should be no doubt in your mind about hiring a lawyer. Rather, you should be focused on how to find a great lawyer and what to expect from your legal advocate. When you choose the Brandon motorcycle accident lawyers at the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, things you should know about us include:

  • We’re experienced. You don’t want an inexperienced law firm handling your motorcycle accident case – there’s too much on the line. Instead, you want an advocate who has been around the block a time or two and who knows the insurance companies, police officers, and judges that may be involved in your case. You want someone who understands best practices for proving their clients’ claims and recovering large settlement awards.
  • We have the resources your case demands. Whether you’re just trying to settle a claim out of court or have brought forth a personal injury lawsuit, your case will demand resources in terms of time, money, and human capital. We have the resource that your case requires, including the means to hire necessary experts and the staff to support our lawyers every step of the way during your case.
  • We put our clients first. In a motorcycle accident claim, the most important person involved in the case is you. When you hire our law firm, you can count on a personalized case strategy, detailed attention, and the accessibility and availability of our attorneys, even after hours. We won’t cut corners when it comes to representing you.

Injuries And Damages In A Motorcycle Crash

The range of potential injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash is huge. Common injuries that motorcyclists may sustain include:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Injuries to extremities
  • Crush and amputation injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Psychological injuries

Of course, these injuries don’t just mean physical losses – they also mean economic and noneconomic losses in the form of lost wages, medical expenses, property damage costs, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress.

Who Pays For Damages After A Motorcycle Accident?

Unlike the drivers of standard motor vehicles who are required to file a claim with their personal injury protection insurance provider before turning to the tort system, motorcyclists maintain the right to pursue damages against the liability insurance provider of the at-fault driver or file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Liability–and who will pay for damages–is based on fault. A motorcyclist will need to prove that the driver involved in their crash (against whom they are filing a claim) did something negligent that caused the accident. Examples of negligence include speeding, driving too fast for conditions, drinking while driving, and performing an illegal maneuver.
