Pompano Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Pompano Beach’s ocean views, balmy breezes, and bright blue skies make it a perfect place for motorcycle enthusiasts. More motorcycles on the roads, however, means more motorcycle accidents.

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to injury when accidents occur. A collision with a car, truck, or bus could leave a motorcyclist with paralysis, brain damage, or another severe injury, while the other vehicle suffers only minor dents.

If you or a loved one was hurt while riding a motorcycle, and you believe that someone else’s carelessness or recklessness caused the accident, the personal injury attorneys at Kogan & DiSalvo may be able to help you recover compensation. Our Pompano Beach motorcycle accident lawyers could be powerful legal allies helping you to assert your rights.

Motorcycle Injury Statistics

With virtually no protection covering their bodies and no helmet requirement for riders 21 years of age and older, motorcyclists involved in collisions may suffer grave, life-altering injuries. Examples include paralysis from spinal cord damage, fractured or broken bones, loss of limb, burns, and brain injury. Motorcyclists who do not wear helmets are much more likely to suffer brain damage and death in the event of a crash.

The statistics for motorcycle accidents in Florida are especially alarming. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent data reveals that in 2016, Florida had more motorcycle fatalities than any other state. At Kogan & DiSalvo, our Pompano Beach motorcycle crash attorneys could help injured riders and their families recover damages.

Recoverable Damages in a Pompano Beach Motorcycle Collision Lawsuit

Depending on the severity of the injuries, an injury may leave a rider unable to work, whether temporarily or permanently. At the same time, bills from the hospital, physician’s offices, pharmacies, and rehabilitation centers start adding up. Depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder may compound the pain of the physical injuries, requiring additional therapy services and pharmaceuticals.

A Pompano Beach motorcycle accident lawyer could help plaintiffs recover compensation from defendants whose carelessness or recklessness is to blame for the victim’s injuries. Recovery could include all medical expenses, lost wages, and damage to property, as well as compensation for physical and emotional pain and suffering, disfigurement and disability, and loss of enjoyment of life. In very rare circumstances involving intentional harm or wanton recklessness, plaintiffs may also recover punitive damages, meant to punish the defendant for egregious conduct.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury and Property Damage

Florida Statute § 95.11 allows motorcycle accident victims up to two years to file a lawsuit for personal injuries and property damage. It is crucial that these civil actions be initiated with the two-year time frame. Otherwise, a court will most likely dismiss the lawsuit with no option to re-file again in the future.
