St. Petersburg Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Of all of the states in the nation, Florida may be one of the most pleasant in which to ride a motorcycle. Indeed, winter or summer, the wind against your skin as you ride along the coast or commute through the city can be very enjoyable. It certainly makes sense why Florida is number two on the list of states with the highest number of registered motorcycles.
But while riding a motorcycle may be nice, it can also be dangerous. Florida also has one of the highest rates of motorcycle crashes in the nation. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident in our state, or are the loved one of someone who’s been in a crash, our St. Petersburg motorcycle accident lawyers can help.
Injuries and Losses from a Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents are often devastating – without a seatbelt, doors, airbags, and vehicle frame for protection, motorcyclists’ bodies often sustain the majority of the force of the collision, leading to tragic injuries and long-term losses. Common injuries in a motorcycle crash include:
- Road rash/road burn injury;
- Bone fracture injuries;
- Internal injuries;
- Back, neck, and head injuries;
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Facial injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Loss of use of limb or limb amputation injuries; and
- Soft tissue injuries.
These injuries are often associated with numerous costs and other losses, including:
- High medical bills;
- Lost wages; and
- Loss of quality of life.
At The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group, our lawyers are passionate about making sure that injured motorcyclists are compensated for their harm. We will fight hard for your right to your full compensation award.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents and Who Pays for Damages
A motorcycle accident may be caused by the careless actions of a driver of a passenger vehicle, such as speeding or driving aggressively; the negligent actions of a motorcyclist, such as driving while impaired or lane-splitting; or the actions of a third party, such as failing to put up proper road signage or maintain the road in a safe condition. If you are a motorcyclist who is injured in a crash and another party was to blame for the accident, you have the right to seek compensation for the full value of your losses, both economic and noneconomic.
Our lawyers will work with you to identify all potential sources of compensation, including any insurance coverage that you carry as a motorcyclist, as well as the liability insurance coverage of the at-fault party. We are skilled negotiators who know how to fight for our clients’ rights, as well as experienced litigators who can take your case to court by filing a lawsuit if need be.
