Motorcycle Accidents

The leading cause of accidents involving motorcycles has been found to be a failure of other Motorists to keep a proper lookout for these lower-profile vehicles.  Whether you have been involved in a minor accident or serious crash, St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attoney Marc F. Plotnick and Attorney Paul S. Horning have the experience to get you the compensation you deserve. 

Motorcycle Accidents - A Higher Risk of Injury

The injuries suffered in a collision between a bike and an automobile can, of course, be far more serious then those suffered in a two car accident.  Medical treatment for motorcycle accidents tends to be more expensive because there is usually more trauma to the body.  Medical treatment often entails longer rehabilitation periods.  Because ejection from the bike is a common occurence, the following factors are unique to victims of motorcycle crashes:

  • Nearly 25% of all claimants have suffered injuries to multiple locations
    on their body
  • Approximately 20% suffer head injuries resulting in permanent disability
  • Back and spine injuries are common

Know Your Rights

With the ever-changing laws in Florida and the fine print of insurance policies that define your rights, attempting to deal with the insurance company on your own can be dangerous for both you and your family.

If you have been injured in an car, truck, or motorcycle accident in Florida, there are many laws that you may be unaware of that can directly affect your rights.  You may be entitled to recover payments for:

  • Your medical treatment
  • Permanent injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Cost of repair to your motorcycle  

Dealing with the Insurance Company

Attempting to deal with insurance companies on your own can be a huge mistake.  Your personal injury lawyer can make the necessary repeated phone calls to the insurance adjuster, in an effort to process your claim more quickly.  Your attorney can also negotiate the best possible settlement, designed to provide you with the security and freedom to take care of yourself and most importantly, your family.
