Bradenton Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Recovering the Compensation Injured Riders Require
Motorcycle accidents, more than any other type of motor vehicle accident, have an overwhelming potential to result in injuries. As riders have little protecting them from harm, these injuries are also often severe and commonly include spinal injuries and brain injuries. In the wake of motorcycle accidents, riders are often required to undergo expensive medical procedures, treatment and physical therapy.
Motorcycle accidents differ from auto accidents in that motorcyclists are not required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. In fact, PIP coverage is not generally included on motorcycle insurance policies because of the high rates of serious injuries. Fortunately, the legal system ensures that injured riders have the right to hold parties responsible for their accident and injury liable for the damages they suffered.
At Carl Reynolds Law, our legal team has worked closely with many injured riders and their families and have supported them through some difficult times. Utilizing the insight we accumulated working in the insurance industry, our legal team has proven that we can stand up against insurance companies and ensure that they do no fail to compensate injured riders what they rightfully deserve and, most importantly, what they require for their recovery.
How Long After a Motorcycle Accident Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
The state of Florida follows a no-fault insurance method. In most cases, therefore, injury victims will only be able to collect compensation through their insurance policies. The time in which you can file will vary from insurance policy to insurance policy, so it is important to know what time limit your insurance company places on filing a claim. Additionally, every state sets a statute of limitations, which is a time limit restricting when you can file until. After that time period has lapsed, the court can refuse to hear your case. In Florida, the statute of limitations for car accidents depends on whether there were injuries or loss of life. For a car accident with no fatalities but injuries, the lawsuit must be filed within four years. If anyone was killed as a result of the accident, family members only have two years to bring this to court.
