TOO MANY VULNERABLE MOTORCYCLISTS ARE VICTIMS OF OTHER DRIVERS’ NEGLIGENCE
Our Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys know the uphill battle injured motorcyclists face when trying to recover compensation for their injuries from a driver’s insurance company.
You already have enough on your plate. Let us take care of it.
At Christopher Ligori & Associates, we have a tradition of getting significant settlement results for individuals who have been ‘low-balled’ by an insurance company or whose lives have been forever changed by the reckless stranger who caused the motorcycle crash.
Although nothing can make up for the pain and suffering caused by the sudden loss of a loved one, or the irreversible injuries such as traumatic brain injury that often result from motorcycle accidents, monetary recovery can help take the weight off your shoulders.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
According to a study released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) on motorcycles and ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), motorcycle deaths accounted for 13 per cent of all motor vehicle crash deaths in 2015 and were more than double the number of motorcyclists deaths in 1997.
4,693 motorcyclists died in crash accidents in 2015.
58% of them died after being hit by another vehicle.
Data from the National Center for Statistics and Analysis of the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveal that older riders are found to have a “significantly higher incidence of thoracic injury, especially multiple thoracic injuries, and specifically multiple rib fractures.” Older motorcyclists are also more likely to ride larger motorcycles and are more involved in collisions involving overturning or striking highway structures.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road rash (skin abrasion that can range from mild to severe, especially when riders fail to wear adequate protective clothing)
- Traumatic brain injury (the leading cause of death and disability in motorcycle accidents)
- Spinal cord injury (either twisted or broken, often resulting in paralysis)
- Broken bones (leg, wrist, arms, shoulder, and pelvis being the most common)
YOU ARE NOT A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT STATISTIC. WE WILL NEVER TREAT YOU AS ONE
Whether you believe motorcycles are more dangerous than cars or vice-versa, riders can indeed be faced with some disadvantages.
Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars and often have high-performance capabilities. But motorcycle accidents often occur because car drivers are not careful in interacting with motorcycles on the roadway.
After a Tampa motorcycle accident, we often hear drivers shamelessly state that they simply didn’t see the bike.
How Our Tampa Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Will Handle Your Case
Investigating motorcycle accidents can be difficult due to this existing public bias against motorcycles. A bias that is sometimes held even by law enforcement officers. That’s why involving lawyers early can make all the difference.
That is not to say that a case cannot be made if time has passed since you were injured. Our Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys can help to prove that drivers who have struck you were acting recklessly or negligently.
As a motorcyclist or their loved ones, you know too well that riders are often overlooked due to the carelessness of motor vehicles and bigger motor vehicle drivers.
Overall, motorcycle accidents are more likely to lead to catastrophic injury than car accidents for obvious reasons: when motorcycles crash, the motorcycle riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, so they’re more likely to be injured or killed. Indeed, in the event of a collision, they have little protection from the elements and other vehicles, often resulting in serious and life-threatening injuries (even with a helmet on, spine and brain injuries that cause lifelong disabilities are still highly possible).
OVERLOOKED ONCE, NOT TWICE
If you were involved in a Tampa motorcycle accident, if you are an injured motorcycle rider, or if you’re loved ones acting on behalf of motorcycle accident victims – we can help you. You will be heard.
Our law firm strongly believes you will need the help of a motorcycle accident attorney to cover the costs you and your family will face and go through this challenge. In addition to painful and long-lasting physical injuries, you may be facing medical bills you cannot cover, property losses you cannot sustain, and potentially lost wages.
We know these costs are unsustainable for many families in Tampa and all over Florida.
Unfortunately, this is not new to us: we have a lot of experience in similar auto accident cases. But it also means that our Florida motorcycle accident lawyers in Tampa know how to deal with this and will fight for your best interests.
Accident victims can recover lost wages and future earnings, compensation for medical bills and projected health care costs, as well as damages for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as a result of their motorcycle accident case.
In fatal motorcycle crashes, surviving family members can recover wrongful death damages for lost earnings, loss of consortium, and emotional pain.
Even though nothing can make up for the pain and suffering caused by the sudden loss of a loved one, monetary recovery can help ease the financial strain resulting from motorcycle accident cases.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to speak with an experienced Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer.
