The Florida coastline sees far more motorcyclists than most other states. The sunny, warm weather and beautiful landscape draw more bikers every year. However, since 2002, when the Florida helmet law was repealed, the number of accidents causing traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries increases every year exponentially. Nationwide, 93,000 motorcyclists were injured in accidents in 2012, and nearly 5,000 ended in death.
These sobering numbers define the vulnerabilities of motorcyclists in Florida. With far less protection than riding in an enclosed vehicle, motorcycle riders are at greater risk of serious injury or death in the event of a collision with another vehicle or object. Nevertheless, those responsible for a motorcycle accident need to be held responsible for their negligence. This is why you need a focused and experienced personal injury attorney.
What Compensation Can a Skilled Attorney Get For Me?
Grall Law Group understands the risks that motorcyclists take and the fact that they are barely of any consequence to anyone on the road besides themselves. Distracted car drivers and poor road maintenance can make for a treacherous path for motorcyclists. Bike wrecks are often far more detrimental than car wrecks, and the pain and suffering, expenses, and lost wages can quickly increase to an inconceivable amount. You may be owed for some or all of the following:
- lost wages
- future earning potential
- medical bills
- rehabilitation and physical therapy
- special equipment
- physical impairment or disfigurement
- pain and suffering
- emotional/mental anguish
- wrongful death
Aside from getting you compensation for your losses, we will make you feel like family. We want to get to know you and listen to your case. We then work hard to get you the compensation that you deserve. However, in order to do our job effectively, we need you to take action immediately. The situation under which you were injured must be scrutinized and evaluated, and the longer you wait to call our law office, the harder it is to evaluate the conditions of the motorcycle accident.
