If you or someone you love was injured—or a loved one was lost—in a motorcycle accident, you are entitled to financial compensation from the negligent motorcycle rider. A Miami negligent motorcycle rider accident lawyer can help you prove the motorcycle rider was responsible for causing the collision.
According to information from the Insurance Information Institute (III), reckless motorcycle driver behavior that leads to collisions include alcohol impairment and speeding. They go on to state that the economic impact of motorcycle accidents has cost billions in the past.
When you are injured by a negligent motorcycle rider, a member of our personal injury team can guide you through the process of pursuing financial recovery. You can do so by filing a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit.
Contact a member of the personal injury team at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers by calling (305) 944-2035 to find out how you can get the financial compensation you are entitled to.
What You Should Know About Recoverable Damages After a Collision
The injuries you sustain in a motorcycle collision will create a growing stack of medical bills. Your expenses will also lead to additional losses if your injuries cause you to miss time away from work. If the accident damaged or destroyed your personal property, you can also have to figure out how to pay for even further costs.
According to Florida Statute § 768.81 guidelines, you can recoup the following financial expenses and losses from the negligent motorcycle rider:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost income
- Repairing or replacing your vehicle
If someone you love was fatally injured in the car accident, you are also entitled to compensation for your loved one’s wrongful death. Your lawyer can help you and your family collect compensation for the following recoverable damages related to your loss:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of support and services
- Loss of your loved one’s income
In addition, your lawyer can also help you recover the following non-economic expenses:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Physical disability and disfigurement
- Mental and emotional distress
Your lawyer can help you assign a value to your compensation claim—especially to the intangible parts of your claim which can be difficult to calculate on your own. Contact the case review team at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers by calling (305) 944-2035.

Keep a Detailed List of Your Injuries and Their Costs
When you are involved in a motorcycle accident, the injuries you sustain can lead to serious physical impairment and to costly short- and long-term medical bills. You may be facing:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
To ensure the full range of your medical expenses are included in the accident, keep a complete record of your injuries and their related expenses. Do not overlook the costs of over the counter and prescription medications, in-home domestic and medical assistance, assistive medical devices, and other costs related to treating and recovering from your injuries.
When a member of our team represents you in your pursuit of financial compensation, we will make sure you do not overlook or inadvertently omit any losses. Doing so could mean you are not fairly compensated.

Our Team Will Negotiate on Your Behalf
When you are ready to resolve your personal injury claim, you might prefer a financial settlement to a court case. Agreeing to a financial settlement means the at-fault driver (or their insurance company) will offer money to settle your case. This absolves the other party of any further financial liability.
Your lawyer will advise you on the feasibility of any settlement offer you receive. However, you are the only one who can decide to accept or reject an offer. When you accept a financial settlement, you cannot ask for additional money later—even if you uncover additional expenses.
This makes it important to value your future expenses. Failing to do so could mean that you accept a settlement offer that is not adequate to fully cover your future care.
Time Plays an Important Role in Your Right to Compensation
It is important that you know how much time and attention to detail it takes to prepare and file a comprehensive personal injury lawsuit for financial compensation. You generally have four years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit under Florida Statute § 95.11.
If you do not file your lawsuit within this allotted time, you will not be able to file it at all. Work with our partners directly to ensure that the filing of your lawsuit complies with all relevant timelines.
The inability to file your lawsuit on time could mean the at-fault driver does not have to pay your expenses. It could also mean you and your family are forced to absorb the financial impact of the accident on your own.
