St. Cloud Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
More people ride motorcycles every year in Florida. Unfortunately, that means that the number of motorcycle accidents and fatalities is also increasing in our state. Last year alone there were 8,875 motorcycle crashes and 534 motorcycle accident fatalities throughout Florida. In St. Cloud’s Osceola County, there were 152 crashes and 10 fatalities.
Non-fatal motorcycle accident injuries are, unfortunately, often very serious, if not life-threatening. Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and multiple bone fractures are all too common. These serious injuries can require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Injured accident victims may not be able to work or participate in many of their usual activities. They may experience physical pain, mental anguish and stress.
If you or a loved one were recently hurt in a motorcycle crash, you know these difficulties all too well. You may have injuries that require long-term or permanent treatment, and you may be dealing with significant losses of income and abilities.
The experienced St. Cloud Dennis Hernandez motorcycle accident lawyers want to help. We know that you are facing many problems at once and are passionate about helping people like you achieve justice. If the other driver in your accident was partially or fully at fault, it is only fair that the driver be held responsible for the harm they caused.
If you are eligible to file a claim against the at-fault driver, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries and losses. Call us at 855-529-3366 or fill out the FREE CASE EVALUATION form on our website so we can discuss your case with you and advise you on your best option.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive in St. Cloud for My Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Florida law allows you to seek compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company for the economic and non-economic damages you have suffered and will suffer over the long term. You may be compensated for expenses and losses since the time of the accident, those expenses and losses that you are experiencing now, and those that can be expected in the future.
The exact amount of compensation you receive will depend on how seriously you were injured, what kinds of treatment and rehabilitation you need and for how long, how much income you have lost and will continue to lose, and how your injuries have affected your life in other ways, including the impact on your family. However, in general, accident victims are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income and lost earning capacity, and non-economic losses, such as pain, suffering and mental anguish.
Compensation for Medical Expenses
You may be compensated for all the medical expenses you’ve had from the time you were injured in the accident up to and including your current treatment expenses. You may also be compensated for medical expenses for treatments that you will need in the future for as long as you are expected to need them.
If you become our client, a Dennis Hernandez St. Cloud motorcycle accident lawyer will use his or her knowledge and experience to calculate an amount that will cover your medical expenses, including those for treatments you may need later, medications, office visits, assistive devices and rehabilitation. We will negotiate aggressively with the at-fault driver’s lawyers and will gladly go to court, if necessary, to ensure you get fair compensation for all of your needs.
Compensation for Lost Income and Loss of Earning Capacity
We will go through the same process with your other financial losses. If you have had to take time off work or are unable to go back to work, your income has decreased significantly. If you are expected to have a lower earning capacity in the long-term or permanently, we will calculate how much money you can be expected to lose from the time of the accident until the age you would have retired if you hadn’t been injured, and we will pursue full, fair compensation for the amount lost.
Compensation for Non-Economic Losses
We also take losses that don’t come with a specific price tag into account. If you lost the ability to do some of your favorite activities, or if your family has lost some of your companionship and support, we will fight for your right to be compensated fully for the lifetime value of those losses as well.
