Florida Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Motorcycles offer no protection in the event of a collision, which is why the injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic. Broke bones, paralysis, and brain trauma are all common—and they can cost a veritable fortune in medical bills and lost income.
If you were hurt or lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, you may be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, insurance companies can be ruthless when it comes to fighting claims. Making just one mistake during the proceedings could threaten your chances of recovering a fair settlement.
At Donaldson & Weston, we provide a voice to people who have suffered injuries or the wrongful death of loved ones in preventable accidents. We will evaluate your case for free and help you determine the most strategic way to proceed.
We have represented hundreds of clients and recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. Call 772-266-5555 to speak with one of the leading motorcycle accident lawyers in Florida.How Much is My Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth?
Motorcycle crashes often result in permanent physical and neurological disabilities. The lifetime cost of care for accident victims can easily reach millions of dollars. Even if your injuries are not permanent, the healthcare bills can add up quickly.
With so much at stake, it’s only natural to question the value of your claim. Unfortunately, there’s no way to estimate the potential value of your damages before we have performed a thorough investigation into your case. And even then, no reputable attorney would promise a particular outcome even if your case seems easy to win. Our lawyers will make sure your claim is as strong as possible by gathering all available evidence, consulting medical experts if necessary, and calculating a fair settlement amount.
Here are just a few factors that may influence the potential value of your claim:
- The severity of your injuries;
- Your own percentage of fault;
- The number of liable parties;
- Each defendant’s total insurance coverage;
- Whether the insurance adjuster is willing to cooperate;
- Whether you have sufficient evidence of liability; and
- Whether you are able to recover punitive damages given the circumstances.
It is important that you hire a motorcycle accident lawyer with extensive litigation experience. Some attorneys are reluctant to take their cases to trial and instead prefer to settle for whatever amount the insurance company is willing to pay. But if your settlement won’t cover your future damages, you may wind up in overwhelming debt.
At Donaldson & Weston, we have many years of experience litigating complicated, high-stakes cases. Insurance companies throughout Florida know we are more than willing to take a case to trial if it is in our clients’ best interests.Discuss Your Case with a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Florida
