Tampa Motorcycle Accidents Lawyers

Competent & Compassionate Legal Service for the Injured

As the Sunshine State, Florida is home to many motorcyclists who enjoy this form of transportation in the state’s warm weather. While motorcycles are a cheaper form of transportation and a fun ride for sport and recreation, they are also a much more dangerous way to travel. Without the solid steel shell of a vehicle and other key safety features – including seat belts and airbags – a motorcyclist stands little chance of avoiding injuries when involved in an accident.

It is a well-known fact that, in any motorcycle accident involving a bike and another vehicle, the motorcyclist will generally incur the worst injuries. When these injuries are caused by the negligence of the other driver or another third party, a personal injury claim can be made for compensatory damages. At Harmon Parker, P.A. we are well-versed in handling these types of cases using all or our available resources to substantiate your claim.

Motorcycle Accidents in Tampa, Florida

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries, ranging from fractures to head and spinal injuries. A common cause for motorcycle crashes is that the other driver failed to see the motorcycle.

This failure may be caused by many factors, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Other moving violations
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Fatigue

Other motorists often fail to give motorcycles the space they need and may be unaware of the speed when an oncoming motorcycle is heading towards them. This lack of judgment can lead to accidents where motorists make left turns in front of motorcycles. As in any accident, understanding and proving fault is crucial to the negotiation of a fair settlement or to proving your claim in court if necessary.

What Damages Can I Recover for My Motorcycle Accident Case?

Motorcycle accidents can range from minor to catastrophic, but regardless of the severity, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered. Recovering from injuries can cost significant amounts of money in medical bills and lost wages.

With the help of an attorney who can achieve a successful outcome, you may be entitled to the following types of damages for your motorcycle accident case:

  • Special Damages - Damages unique to the case, including medical bills, property damage, and legal fees.

  • General Damages - Damages that are generally suffered in a motorcycle accident, including physical pain and suffering, and mental anguish.

  • Punitive Damages - Additional damages a judge may award if compensation is not enough to fully cover.

If you put off calling our firm, important evidence – such as the damage to vehicles, witness testimony, or skid marks on the road – may be lost or compromised.
