Myriam
St. Petersburg

The Ruth Law Team was there for me from the day of my accident to the very end. The day after my accident they sent an investigator to my home to get the details of the accident. Which was amazing because I was in so much pain there is no way I could have gone to their office. They fought for me every step of the way and I am eternally grateful. They literally had to do so much work on my behalf. I can't thank them enough for turning a very traumatic event in my life into a supportive and nurturing experience. Nicole was my go to and she was phenomenal. She checked on me regularly and kept me up to date on the case. Thank you!

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents often lead to more severe injuries than car accidents due to the lack of protective barriers between the motorcyclist and the road or other vehicles. Here, we overview some common injuries individuals may sustain in motorcycle accidents.

  • Head and Brain Injuries: Without the protection of a vehicle’s frame, motorcyclists can suffer from traumatic brain injuries, concussions, or skull fractures, particularly if they were not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These can result from the crash’s impact and may lead to partial or complete paralysis or other forms of long-term disability.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The force of a collision can lead to broken bones, commonly in the arms, legs, ribs, and collarbone.
  • Road Rash: This occurs when a rider slides across the pavement, causing severe skin abrasions that can lead to significant scarring.
  • Biker’s Arm: A common injury where the motorcyclist naturally tries to break their fall with their arm, leading to nerve damage in the arm and upper body.
  • Internal Injuries: These can occur from the force of impact, leading to damage to organs and internal bleeding.
  • Leg and Foot Injuries: Due to the exposure and positioning of a rider’s legs, they are particularly susceptible to serious injuries in a collision.
  • Death: In the worst of circumstances, motorcycle accidents can lead to death.

Remember, the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can leave not just physical scars but emotional ones too. It can be a traumatic, life-altering event that affects you and your loved ones in ways that are difficult to quantify. Here at The Ruth Law Team, we understand this and stand ready to fight for your rights and help you navigate this challenging time. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries from a motorcycle accident, don’t hesitate to reach out to our firm or Sarasota motorcycle injury lawyers. Together, we can chart a path towards justice and healing.

Potential Damages Available to Sarasota Motorcycle Accident Victims

In the wake of a motorcycle accident, individuals often find themselves grappling with a myriad of challenges. Medical bills can pile up. Workdays can be missed. The physical pain and mental trauma can be overwhelming. That’s where a personal injury claim comes in. Such a claim can help alleviate the financial burden and provide the resources needed for recovery. Here are some forms of compensation that you might be eligible for:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes the cost of hospital stays, surgeries, doctor visits, medication, physical therapy, and any future medical expenses related to the accident.
  • Property Damage: If your motorcycle was damaged or totaled in the accident, you may receive compensation for repairs or the fair market value of your bike.
  • Pain and Suffering: This compensation aims to relieve the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident.
  • Loss of Consortium: If the accident has affected your relationship with your spouse or family, you may be eligible for compensation.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases where the defendant’s conduct was exceptionally reckless, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the defendant and discourage such behavior.

Navigating the world of Florida personal injury law can be complex, but you don’t have to do it alone. The Ruth Law Team is dedicated to helping you understand your rights and options.

Next Steps After a Motorcycle Accident

The moments following a motorcycle accident can be a whirlwind of confusion and fear. However, taking the right steps can ensure your safety and strengthen your potential personal injury claim. Here’s a step-by-step guide on what you should do if you find yourself in such a situation:

  • Prioritize Safety: If it’s safe to do so, move to a secure location away from the traffic flow. Your personal safety and that of others involved should always be your first concern.
  • Call Emergency Services: Dial 911 to report the accident. 
  • Seek Medical Treatment: Even if you feel fine, some injuries may not be immediately apparent. A medical examination will ensure your injuries are properly treated and documented.
  • Document the Accident: If possible, gather evidence at the scene. This can include photos of your injuries, your motorcycle, the other vehicle involved, and the surrounding area. Additionally, collect the contact and insurance information of the other parties involved.
  • Reach Out to The Ruth Law Team: Before contacting your insurance company, get in touch with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney at The Ruth Law Team. We can guide you on the best way to communicate with insurance companies to protect your rights and interests.
  • Keep Track of Medical Treatment: Record all medical treatments and costs associated with your injuries. This includes hospital visits, physical therapy, medications, and any other related expenses.
  • Follow Your Doctor’s Advice: Stick to the treatment plan prescribed by your healthcare providers. Failing to do so might hurt your claim.

Should You Talk to the Insurance Company?

It’s important to remember that insurance companies are often focused on minimizing payouts to preserve their own bottom line. So while it’s necessary to report your motorcycle accident to them, speaking with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney from The Ruth Law Team first is prudent. Our team can provide valuable advice and handle all discussions with the insurance companies. This allows you to focus on what truly matters – your recovery.
