Obtaining Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims in the Space Coast Region in Central Florida
Some of the most frequent causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- A driver cuts you off or stops suddenly
- A driver fails to see you
- A driver is drunk or distracted
Because cyclists have only the protection of a helmet, catastrophic and fatal injuries are very common. Typical motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Amputations, burns and severe road rash
These types of injuries can cause a lifetime of pain, disability and disfigurement. In the worst cases, wrongful death may be the result.
Compensation from the liable party typically includes damages for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Many motorcycle accident victims need long-term medical care, including multiple surgeries, rehabilitative therapy and pain management. You will need significant compensation to cover these expenses and pay monthly bills.
