Factors in a Motorcycle Accident Claim or Lawsuit
A motorcycle accident will consider all factors of a normal motor vehicle accident, but our team understands that the severity of injuries can be far greater with a motorcycle crash. Here are some things that will factor into the amount of damages we will seek for your situation:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Diminished Quality of Life
- Pain and Suffering
- Property Damage
- Future Lost Income
- Future Medical Expenses
- Loss of Relationship
- Punitive Damages
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, we will consider some, all, or possible additional factors that will go into the dollar amount we will seek for your recovery. Given the variety of possibilities that lead to your accident, and the variety of issues in the aftermath, your specific case will vary because of your unique circumstances. With an experienced team by your side, you can be confident that we are working towards the best outcome.
How Much Money Can I Collect?
As you can see if the aforementioned list of factors we will take into consideration, there is a wide range of possible amounts we will file a lawsuit for. Some aspects of the lawsuit are simple to quantify, such as your past medical expenses and lost income. This requires simply tabulating the amount of medical bills you have already incurred, and proving the wages you have missed because of time out of work with previous pay stubs. Additionally, calculating your property damage will just require an estimate from a mechanic, or your insurance company deciding to declare your motorcycle totaled.
However, there are additional factors that we will consider that are harder to determine, but just as important. Some of these issues include possible future lost wages and future medical expenses, which will require us to understand the nature and extent of your injuries, likely future recovery process, and attaching a dollar amount to the associated bills as well as future time away from work. Other factors can be even less vague, such as your pain and suffering or diminished quality of life. You can be confident that our team will work to determine a fair and just amount for these non-economic factors. It is our top priority that our clients are able to resume a quality of life that they deserve, or be compensated for any reasons that are unable to do so.
Possible Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
There are many motorcycles in and around Fort Lauderdale, and there are many ways that an accident can happen while you are riding or driving on. Below are a few common situations that could lead to a motorcycle crash, although this is nowhere near a complete list.

- Texting while Driving
- Improper Turn Signals
- Drunk Driving
- Road Debris
- Tractor Tire Blowout

- Obstructed Views

There are an endless number of possibilities that may lead to a motorcycle accident, but you can be certain that the team at Friedland & Associates will work with you to determine how to best pursue financial compensation regardless of the situation. If you were in a crash that was not your fault, it is important to us that we get you the justice you deserve so that you can continue with your life after this unfortunate incident.
Dealing with an insurance company following a motorcycle accident can be an extremely stressful and frustrating process when simply trying to recover insurance amounts. This is because an insurance company’s primary objective is to protect their bottom line by paying out as little as possible. They do this by making claims complicated, and by blaming you even if you are clearly not at fault. By claiming that you are at fault in any bit, they can then argue that they do not owe you the full amount that you rightfully deserve.
By working with an attorney through the insurance claim process, you can be sure that we check the insurance company every step of the way. We are familiar with the insurance claim process, as well as the rights of those who are filing the claims. We will work to compile facts for your case that make your claim completely clear and legitimate, and will counter any offers that the insurance company may make that doesn’t fully reflect your situation. Our experience with accidents, personal injuries, and the insurance world will be a significant asset to you, and will reduce the amount of stress that this process can create.
