We Can Help You Estimate the Value of Your Case
Recovering from serious injuries can take time. Motorcycle accident victims often face extensive medical care costs, long periods away from work, and in some cases, long-term or permanent disabilities.
Insurance companies may attempt to settle quickly but offer an amount that does not meet your future care needs. Our attorneys can carefully examine the details of your case to determine the different types of compensation you can pursue.
Damages Can Take Many Forms
Our goal is to negotiate a fair settlement that reflects the impact of the accident on your life now and in the future, which can include compensation for:
- Current and ongoing medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Missed wages
- Any impact on future earnings and work-related benefits
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Psychological trauma
- Damaged or lost property
- Other related expenses
If the accident caused the loss of a loved one, with earnest consideration for your situation, our attorneys can help surviving beneficiaries pursue compensation via a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. You might be able to recoup damages for your loved one’s funeral and burial, as well as your loss of companionship.

We Manage the Legal Process so You Can Focus on Recovering
When you hire us to represent you, we provide many services to build a strong case to support your claim. The process typically begins with a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident.
From there, we can gather the evidence required to identify the liable parties and prove their negligence caused you harm by:
- Proving the other driver owed you a duty of care
- Showing the other driver failed to uphold their duty of care
- Establishing a link between the other driver’s actions and your injuries
- Demonstrating the losses you incurred from the accident
What Happens when We Build Your Case
Once liability is established, we can accurately estimate the value of your claim before entering into settlement negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company or their legal representation.
Having reviewed their offer, it is possible to accept, renegotiate, or take matters to trial. As we meticulously prepare each case, insurance companies know that we will have the evidence necessary to receive a fair settlement. As such, it is more usual for us to reach a fair settlement outside of court.

How Long do I Have to Begin Legal Proceedings?
Florida Statutes § 95.11 allows four years from the date of the accident for injured parties to file a lawsuit. Should you fail to file a case before the statute of limitations expires, it is unlikely you will be able to claim compensation.
If the accident caused the loss of a loved one, the surviving family must begin legal proceedings within two years defined within the statute above.

Understanding Driver Negligence
Driver negligence is a term used to describe when a motorist fails to drive in a responsible way and whose actions result in the injury of another road user, passenger, or pedestrian.
Leading causes of many accidents of this type include:
Distracted driving occurs when a motorist’s attention is diverted from the task of driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), leading causes of driver distraction include:
- Using a smartphone, texting, or using in-car technologies
- Fiddling with the GPS or radio
- Other passengers or pets
- Eating, drinking, or smoking
- Driving while upset or angry or worried
- People, objects, or events outside of the vehicle
Aggressive driving falls below the minimum standard expected of a careful driver. It can include negative behaviors such as:
- Improper passing
- Erratic lane changing
- Failing to obey traffic signs and controls
Unfortunately, there are many other forms of aggressive driving, according to the Insurance Information Institute (III). However, the overarching message is that this risky behavior considerably increases the likelihood of an accident.
Driving While Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
Drugs and alcohol can impair a person’s ability to operate a vehicle safely. An injury lawyer can help you gather the evidence required to prove liability, such as:
- Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Other supporting documents
If a negligent driver injured you in Ocala, a motorcycle accident lawyer with our firm can help you prove they are responsible for your injuries and other compensatory damages.
