Tampa Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle injuries can be very catastrophic. Common injuries include head injuries, spinal injuries, fractures, paralysis, and disfigurement. Any of these injuries will change your life forever. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney.
Catastrophic Motorcycle Injuries
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you will require a lifetime of medical care, up to and including 24-hour care, and assistance by family members or hired professionals. You may require extensive reconstructive surgery. Your medical care may run into the millions.
Permanent disfigurement, impairment, suffering, and premature death often result. All these conditions may be considered a compensable injury. With the help of a good attorney, you may be able to recover for pain, suffering, and lost income.
Loss of Consortium
You may be able to recover damages if your spouse was injured or killed in a motorcycle accident. This only applies to legally married couples. A personal injury attorney will build evidence for a thriving martial relationship and show how it changed as a result of the accident. This includes more than a sexual relationship. It includes division of household chores, childcare, lost wages for the spouse, and loss of companionship.
A jury will look at different factors that contribute to recoverable damages. The first step is to determine fault. Florida law allows fault to be divided between the people involved in the accident. Trying to prove fault can be difficult. Having a personal injury attorney can help you.
You must also present your current expenses and estimate future expenses. Underestimating especially the future expenses can hurt your future. You must also show lost wages and potential lost wages. Again, a personal injury attorney will help you gather and estimate all these current and future expenses.
Remember that insurance companies have a duty to their stockholders to make money. They will do their best to encourage you to settle. Once you sign that paperwork, you may lose out on the damages that you can collect. Before you settle, contact a personal injury attorney like Brian Hoag. The initial consultation is always free.
