What could have caused my motorcycle wreck?

Your motorcycle wreck could have been caused by negligence in a variety of ways: drunk driving, speeding, reckless driving, failure to yield, red-light-running, dangerous roadways, faulty motorcycle or auto parts, or mechanical failure.

Who could be liable for my damages?

Liability is determined by finding the party that was to blame for causing your motorcycle crash. Who is liable will depend on what caused your wreck. A few parties that could have been liable for your wreck and injuries include other drivers, truckers, the government, commercial vehicle companies, mechanics, and manufacturers.

What types of damages can I receive for my West Palm Beach motorcycle wreck?

You’re able to claim any losses that your accident brought about by filing a personal injury claim. This includes your financial losses and non-financial losses. Financial losses are damages, such as medical bills, lost work wages, physical therapy costs, and the cost of caregiving services. Non-financial losses are paid to you for your physical and mental suffering.

How long do I have to file a claim in Florida?

In Florida, you have four years from the date of your injury accident to file a claim—this law is known as the statute of limitations. Failure to file a claim within the timeline mandated by this law will result in your case being rejected by the courts.
