Ocala Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
There are few things more enjoyable than riding a motorcycle – the wind in your hair, the fresh air against your skin, and the feeling of the freedom of the open road are just a few of the reasons why motorcyclists take to their bikes time and time again.
While motorcycling may be a pleasurable way to commute or get time outdoors, motorcycling can be dangerous. In fact, Florida leads the nationas one of the states with the greatest number of motorcycle accidents, injuries, and deaths.
Following a motorcycle accident that results in injuries and economic and noneconomic losses, you need a skilled attorney on your side. At the offices of Marianne Howanitz, PA, Attorney at Law, our talented Ocala motorcycle accident lawyer will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
You Deserve to Be Compensated for Your Injuries
When the negligence of another party leads to your motorcycle accident and subsequent injuries, you deserve to be compensated for the full extent of harm you’ve suffered. Examples of negligent acts of another driver that can lead to a motorcycle accident include:
- Following too closely;
- Failing to yield;
- Driving while distracted;
- Driving while impaired;
- Driving aggressively;
- Failing to look/illegal lane change; and
Other causes of motorcycle accidents, besides the negligence of another driver, include poor road conditions, motorcycle defects, and unforeseeable circumstances, such as poor weather or an animal darting out into the road.
Our Law Firm Handles All Elements of Your Florida Motorcycle Claim
Our law firm is prepared to handle all elements of your Florida motorcycle claim, starting with an investigation into how your accident happened and whose negligence was its cause. This also includes identifying all potentially liable parties and their insurers. We also review your own insurance policy to determine whether or not you can file a claim with your own policy. After the initial investigatory process, we will file the claim on your behalf, assess and value the amount of damages you’ve suffered, demand compensation, and negotiate a settlement. Should negotiations fail, we can also litigate on your behalf in court.
The Statute of Limitations for Florida Motorcycle Accident Cases
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you act quickly to recover compensation. All civil claims must be filed within four years of the date of your accident. If you wait too long, not only do you risk the destruction of evidence, but also a breach of the statute of limitations.
