How Common Are Motorcycle Accidents in Florida?

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) publishes statistics on motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles across the state.

There were a total of 9,217 motorcycle accidents reported statewide in 2022. Sadly, 592 people lost their lives in those crashes. In the first six months of 2023, another 4,938 motorcycle accidents and 290 fatalities were reported.

In Hillsborough County alone, 603 motorcycle accidents occurred in 2022. Overall, 48 people were killed in those crashes.

We Handle All Types of Motorcycle Accident Cases in Town ‘n’ Country

A motorcycle accident can happen in an instant. Typically, they occur because the driver did not see the motorcyclist or did not have enough time to react and prevent the crash. 

In our experience, some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way 
  • Tailgating 
  • Road rage or aggressive driving
  • Unsafe turns
  • Passing too closely to a motorcyclist
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Road hazards 
  • Defective vehicles
  • Worn tires, faulty brakes, or failure to maintain a vehicle

Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are often thrown off their bikes in a crash. That makes it much more likely that the motorcyclist will suffer severe and life-changing injuries. 

Our car accident attorneys often represent injured motorcyclists who have sustained:

  • Broken bones
  • Nerve injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Back injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Catastrophic and other long-term injuries
  • Wrongful death of a loved one

Regardless of the type of injuries you have suffered, you can count on our Town ‘n’ Country motorcycle accident attorneys to fight to recover fair compensation for them.

What Is My Town ‘n’ Country Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

Many personal injury victims make the mistake of taking an insurance settlement offer before they understand the true extent of their losses. 

All personal injury cases are a bit different–even if the crash and injuries were similar to other accidents. Insurance companies and lawyers will compare your case to others they have seen in the past. That doesn’t mean you should expect your compensation award to be exactly the same as another victim’s. The details are important.

When we’re assessing your case value, our lawyers will consider all of the unique facts of your case before we file a claim with insurance, including:

  • The type of injuries involved
  • Your age at the time of the crash
  • The cost of your medical treatment
  • Whether you will make a full recovery
  • Whether you are able to work
  • Whether your ability to earn a living in the future was impacted
  • Whether you took steps to mitigate your injuries
  • How you were affected emotionally

If you have an offer on the table, we’re here to help you determine whether you’re receiving compensation for all of your losses. Just give us a call to get started today.

What Types of Damages Are Available to Motorcycle Accident Victims in Florida?

If your case is successful, you should recover damages for all of your economic and non-economic damages.

For example, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages while you recover
  • Diminished future earning potential
  • Rehabilitation 
  • Nursing care and in-home assistance
  • Property damage
  • Miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and trauma
  • PTSD
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Physical disfigurement and scarring
  • Loss of consortium

If the accident was fatal, surviving family members can seek compensation for wrongful death.

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Motorcycle Accident in Florida?

Most motorcycle accident victims now have two years to take legal action. The two-year statute of limitations begins on the date the accident happened.

However, it’s possible that you could have more time to sue for damages. If the crash happened before March 24, 2023, you have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. 

The consequences of missing the deadline are serious. You won’t be entitled to seek compensation at all if you wait too long. Don’t let that happen to you. Contact our law firm in Town ‘n’ Country right away if you were injured in a motorcycle accident.

Can I Recover Damages If I’m Being Blamed for Causing a Motorcycle Accident in Florida?

It is possible for injured parties to lose their right to compensation if they are mostly responsible for an accident. Under Florida’s modified comparative negligence law, you cannot recover compensation if you were found to be more than 50% responsible for your own injuries. If you were less than 51% to blame, your compensation will be reduced to account for your share of fault.

Shared fault can significantly impact your compensation award. Insurance companies know that–and they’ll often go to great lengths to pin the blame on the victim. Do not admit any fault or apologize if you were involved in a motorcycle accident. Insurance companies will grasp at whatever evidence they have to blame you for the crash.

Instead, contact an experienced lawyer who can help you fight for the maximum compensation possible in your case.

How Do I Prove Negligence After I Was Injured in a Motorcycle Wreck in Florida? 

Most injured motorcycle riders must prove negligence before they can recover compensation for their injuries. In other words, you must prove that someone else was responsible for the crash.

The four elements of a successful negligence claim are:

  • The at-fault driver owed you a legal duty of care
  • A breach of duty occurred
  • Causation, which means that the breach directly caused the accident
  • You sustained some type of physical, emotional, and/or financial damages. 

You may wonder how you can locate evidence to prove your case while recovering from a serious injury. An experienced lawyer can conduct an investigation to gather and evaluate evidence that can convince the insurance company you deserve compensation.

Examples of that evidence may include:

  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Video footage from dash cams or traffic lights
  • Photos of the crash scene
  • Skid marks, vehicle placement, and other hard data from the accident scene
  • Opinions prepared by accident reconstruction specialists

This was my first personal injury experience. I wanted to choose a law office I could trust. A friend of mine recommended the law offices of Winters & Yonker, Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa. Through the entire process Attorney Marc Yonkers was helpful and communication was stellar. I never felt out the loop. I felt confident throughout entire process. Which this month (Sept. 2023) they were able to settle my accident case successfully and to my 100% satisfaction. I cannot recommend Winters & Yonker and or Marc any higher. In short they are firm, fair, aggressive, responsive, super smart and know the numerous ins and outs of Personal Injury cases (which can be quite complicated). Upon hiring them you get a law firm that will leave you confident that your case will be handled expertly and with your interests front and center.

Winters and Yonkers has been a legend of the Tampa Bay personal injury Attorney community for a long time. I was in a car accident recently with my husband, we suffered back and neck pains after two days and thought to get someone’s help. I found Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers through a google search and called them right up. The same day Mr. Winters contacted both of us, listened, and was compassionate to our situation.

Bill Winters, my case manager, and the entire staff were very knowledgeable and exceptional at their work. We would like to express my sincere gratitude to them and recommend them without any hesitation to anybody who needs help, don't try and fight the at fault's insurance on your own.

My wife and I are work in Mediation and Arbitration but know nothing about personal injury cases. When a young delivery Truck driver who was distracted by his phone hit us at full speed and rear-ended us as we were stopped in traffic on Wesley chapel. We knew we needed to hire the best lawyers with PI experience and expertise in the Tampa legal community that we could.From our first phone call with Bill Winters and then all the way through Trial preparation then Trial, we never felt any bad about our case because we knew Bill and the entire staff at Winters and Yonker would take care of us.Their dedication, innovation, motivation, reliability, unparalleled intellect, and exceptional skill as trial lawyers make them extraordinary individuals. My experience working with them was nothing short of exceptional. Experiencing a car accident is an ordeal that encompasses fear, trauma, and frustration. It's a life-changing event in anyone's life. There was no amount of money that could ever make me alright, because I would give any amount of cash to not have to go through the nightmare that the car accident was and continues to be.It took almost 2 years from the time of the car crash to go to trial, but ultimately the jury verdict that Bill Winters got for my family was worth fighting for. There were so many times over the course of the three years that we actively realized how amazing it was that we felt no anxiety or concerns or worries about our case, because Bill is truly outstanding!If you or anyone you know gets hurt in a car accident, call Winters and Yonkers RIGHT AWAY! And then rest assured that you, your family, or friends are being cared for by the ABSOLUTE BEST legal team in Tampa Bay. Thank you, Winters & Yonker!

Winters & Yonker law firm did excellent work with my injury case. Luckily, I was referred to Winters & Yonker from a good friend after I was injured in a car accident. I did some initial research about injury lawyers near me, but the reviews for this office really stood out to me in Tampa. I decided to call and after a single phone conversation, the choice was easy to make! Not only was everyone extremely professional, they made the entire process smooth and clear. I was at ease with each step of the way because they were always there to answer my questions and keep me informed of what was happening. All expectations were met and my settlement was exceeded. I got much more than I thought was even possible from the insurance company. I highly recommend the Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, and their team in Tampa to anyone in need of help after a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. You'll be in good hands!

I was injured in a car crash here in town. Since it was essentially a "he said she said" accident case the opposing insurance claimed it was a 50/50 fault. Even though it clearly could not have been my fault. However, Bill worked diligently to get me everything I was needed to get my life back. He worked to get me access to all the doctors I needed and medical treamtment for my neck and back. Plus, a large settlement amount. Bill even took the time to calm me down when I saw the initial amount and cost for seeing my medical bills piling up! He even managed to get them to reduce their bills significantly! Plus, I received as much as possible. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa provided a great legal service. They were strait forward and honest about the approach, and communicated every aspect of the process. The firm took care of everything. I would 100% without a doubt recommend him if I knew someone that need a personal injury attorney. Given the circumstances of our introduction I hope I never have to, BUT Bill Winters will definitely be my first call if I'm ever injured again!

Everyone on their staff is amazing! Chris and Sara won my case and helped me out with an accident that occurred a few months back. They made the entire process so easy! They called with case updates but not too often where it was constant phone calls. It was just enough to know what was going on the whole time without being bombarded. Thankful for Tayler on their staff who helped inform me on why Winters and Yonker was the best choice to go with!

Highly recommend. Bill Winters and his staff took time to answer my questions, and handled my case in a timely and professional manner. I almost didn't contact a lawyer over my "small" injury case because I feared it would be so difficult and stressful. But he got me the settlement that my insurance company owed me, and I would never have been able to do that on my own. And with less stress that I anticipated. I'm glad I called them.

Winters and Yonker is who you want to go to when you get in a car accident because they will take care of you and won’t let you get low balled on your settlement. I got in a car accident where my back and shoulder was injured and I was referred to a attorney named Trevor. I appreciate Trevor for handling my case and keeping me informed with all the information I needed.

One of the best law firms in Tampa. My family was involved in a serious car accident. We went to that other personal injury firm with the two M's they were trying to make us settle the case quickly and they we're not listening to us with the arrogant attitude that they were the experts and we were just ignorant. We promptly fired them and then hired Winters & yonker. Our settlement was 5 times higher than what the MM wanted to settle for.I would like to thank Winters and Yonkers entire staff for a wonderful experience. They were all very knowledgeable and walked us through the whole process. We really felt like they cared, unlike the other firm.

I’m giving Winters & Yonker a shout out. My mother fell in Winn Dixie afew months ago. Her first choice wasMorgan & Morgan; however, after theinterview with them they decided not to take the case. My perception was that it was not a big enough case for them. I knew that she deserved to be compensated for her injuries, and I had mad faith in Winters & Yonker from using them in the past. They not only took the case but settled it in record time. Thanks Winters and Yonker, and I like to send a special thank you to Christopher Smith, who was never to busy when I needed answers. I would recommend your law firm to anyone. I found you to be ethical, professional, and respectful to my family, but most of all you will fight for the little guy. Much love and respect. God bless you all and your families👏👏👏👏
