Florida Motorcycle Accidents Are Serious Situations
Motorcyclists know that operating motorcycles on Florida roadways is more dangerous than operating typical passenger vehicles. Motorcycles lack the basic safety features that come standard in passenger vehicles such as seatbelts, safety restraint systems, and reinforced passenger compartments. Newer passenger vehicles often include even more innovative safety features such as back-up cameras, crash avoidance systems, and distracted driving warning technology. Many motorcycles do not have these safety innovations, and therefore the injuries associated with motorcycle accidents have the potential to be more severe on average than the typical automobile accident.
This lack of safety technology and features likely contributes to the more than 5,000 riding deaths per year throughout the U.S. Startlingly, recent data shows that bikers are approximately 28 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle crash than passenger vehicle occupants. At Montlick & Associates, our lawyers understand the severe nature of motorcycle accidents, which often result in costly medical care, lost income, disability, and pain and suffering. We fight hard on behalf of our clients to get them the maximum compensation to which they are entitled by law.
Pursuing a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Florida — Why Retaining an Attorney Is Critical to Protecting Your Rights
Dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence can be a daunting task. This is especially true when you endure physical injuries requiring expensive medical care. To make matters more complicated, the insurance companies’ main goal is to pay you as little money as possible, regardless of your best interest. That is why insurance companies employ trained adjusters, who might exploit injury victims’ lack of experience with the claims process. For example, adjusters will often ask the injured party to provided recorded statements in an effort to gain information that they can later use to deny or minimize that person’s claim. Adjusters may also offer claimants quick “lowball” settlements that the injured person, desperate and in need of help, might accept long before realizing the extent of their injuries or their legal rights in the matter. Ultimately, insurance companies are in business to make money, and they make more money by paying you less.
At Montlick & Associates, we handle the insurance companies for you. Our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys protect you from unscrupulous tactics, so you can focus on getting well. We work tirelessly to maximize the amount of compensation our clients are entitled to receive by law. We will not hesitate, in the appropriate circumstances, to file lawsuits against those responsible and fight for justice at trial.

Potential Damages in a Florida Motorcycle Accident Case
Our lawyers pursue all types of damages that our clients are entitled to by law, based on the specific facts and circumstances of their case. This may include compensation for:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Property damage to the motorcycle and accessories
- Past, present, and future lost income and lost or diminished capacity to work
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of Consortium (a derivative claim made by the injured victim’s spouse)
- Punitive damages, depending on the egregiousness of the defendant’s conduct
- Wrongful death damages, including the full value of the life of the decedent, burial expenses, and others
The unique considerations of each situation prevent an attorney from assigning a precise value of a claim at the outset of a motorcycle accident case. However, our attorneys can usually provide a range of potential case values once all evidence has been assembled, we have learned the extent and long-term effects of the injury, we have reviewed all medical records and expenses, and we have evaluated the applicable law and the strength of the evidence.
Do Not Delay in Seeking Legal Assistance!
Each state has a statute of limitations pertaining to personal injury claims. This means you must either file your lawsuit or resolve your claim before the deadline. Generally, the statute of limitation for personal injury claims in Florida is four years from the date of the incident, but it is subject to critical exceptions that can shorten or lengthen the deadline. For example, claims against any governmental entities or municipalities can require much shorter deadlines, and claims against minors can potentially give you more time. WARNING: Failure to take the required actions before the expiration of legal deadline(s) applicable to your particular situation will result in the loss of your right to money damages.An experienced attorney can advise you of which deadlines are applicable to your case.
Complicated legal deadlines are not the only reason to expedite seeking legal assistance. Often, personal injury plaintiffs are surprised to learn that their own existing motorcycle and automobile policies can provide valuable coverage. For instance, Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage, Personal Injury Protection (PIP), and/or Medical Payments (MedPay) coverage could help an injured person after a motorcycle accident. In our considerable experience, many of our clients involved in motorcycle accidents have separate insurance policies for their bikes from those covering their automobiles, and multiple policies can potentially provide important insurance coverage for their claims. Importantly, insurance policies often contain contractual notification deadlines that, if overlooked, can trigger a denial of coverage.
The passage of time can cause additional complications to arise such as witnesses becoming difficult to locate, witness recollection becoming less reliable, or even the loss or destruction of physical evidence.
Our attorneys at Montlick & Associates make sure all vital deadlines are met, and, when appropriate, interview critical witnesses and work to preserve important evidence.
