What Compensation Could You Claim After a Motorcycle Accident in Yulee?

After a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to several types of damages. Economic damages compensate for your monetary losses, such as lost wages, medical bills, and property damage. Meanwhile, non-economic damages cover your intangible losses that aren’t easily measured in dollars, like pain, suffering, scarring and disfigurement, disability, wrongful death, and more. There’s no limit on economic and non-economic damages—they’re only limited by your ability to prove your losses.

You may also be able to collect punitive damages from the at-fault driver if you have clear evidence of deliberate misconduct or gross negligence, such as drunk or aggressive driving. The limit on punitive damages in Florida is three times the total economic and non-economic damages or $500,000, whichever is greater.

Our Yulee motorcycle accident attorneys also have a network of financial analysts and medical professionals who can serve as expert witnesses to bolster your case and prove the extent of your losses.

Since 1979, we’ve recovered more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements, including the settlements below.

  • $5 million for a motorcyclist who was killed when the defendant ran a stoplight.
  • $1 million for a passenger injured when a motorcycle was struck by a truck.
  • $760,000 over the death of a wife from a collision with a dump truck.
  • $400,000 for a leg injury suffered when a motorcycle was struck by a car.
  • $250,000 for a motorcyclist injured when a driver pulled out in front, causing a severe collision.

Who Is at Fault for Your Yulee Motorcycle Accident?

If you were involved in a motorcycle crash in Yulee, it may not be clear who caused the accident. Florida is a comparative fault state, meaning that you can recover a portion of your damages even if you share some of the blame for the accident. You cannot recover damages from another party if you’re more than 50 percent responsible for your motorcycle accident. However, you can recover damages if you are 50 percent or less at fault. Your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your share of the blame.

Insurers usually rely on the police report to determine who is at fault. However, you don’t have to accept this finding as final. The only way to truly determine who is at fault is to conduct an independent investigation of the accident.

Fault for a motorcycle accident depends on which party acted negligently. Another driver may have been negligent by speeding, tailgating, weaving between lanes, or disobeying traffic signals. Hazardous road conditions or vehicle defects might also cause or contribute to the accident.

To succeed in your claim, you must prove another party caused your damages. Our experienced Yulee motorcycle lawyers will thoroughly investigate and gather evidence to prove your case and refute any allegations that you are to blame for your losses.

“If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident, people may be pointing the finger at you. They may try to say that it's your fault, but we know there are other factors to consider. We also handle motorcycle products liability cases, and we realize that oftentimes, there's a hidden defect with your motorcycle that may have caused or contributed to the crash, not something you did. If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident in Florida, you need a lawyer that’s willing to look at all the angles, that has the experience to look at the entire set of facts, and has the knowledge and experience to protect your rights. There are numerous causes for motorcycle accidents, and we're not here to blame you. We're here to work for you.”

What Role Does Insurance Play in Florida Motorcycle Accidents?

Florida does not require motorcycle insurance, but a policy can cover your medical bills and property damage after an accident—especially if you were at fault. Standard motorcycle insurance policies include liability coverage for both bodily injury and property damage. However, you can also purchase uninsured motorist, collision, and comprehensive coverage, which can further cover your damages from an accident.

Florida requires all drivers of registered motor vehicles with at least four wheels to carry personal injury protection or no-fault insurance, but that policy doesn’t apply to motorcycles. Even if you have the mandatory PIP coverage for your car, you can’t use it for your motorcycle. Without PIP coverage, bikers generally can’t rely on Florida’s no-fault system for compensation from another driver after an accident.

What Is the Deadline To File a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Florida?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for motorcycle accident claims is two years from the accident date. If you fail to file suit before the deadline, you will be barred from recovering damages. Contact our experienced team today so we can file your case promptly and get you the compensation you deserve.

Insurance companies may try to stall your case to get you to miss the filing deadline, but one of our skilled motorcycle accident lawyers can prevent this. A lawyer can help you find treatment, document your injuries, investigate your accident, collect evidence, handle paperwork, negotiate with insurers, and represent you in court if necessary.

“It costs you nothing to pursue a personal injury case. When we take on the case, we advance any costs that are associated with the claim. So, if there are experts who need to be retained, investigative costs that need to be incurred, or medical bills and records that have to be gathered, we pay all that, and the goal is to make sure the client doesn't have to pay anything in order to pursue their claim.”
