How a Vero Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Help You
There are many ways that our team can help you. For starters, having someone to guide you through the complex personal injury claims process will make life much easier and free up more of your time to focus on your recovery rather than your insurance company.
We Help Protect Motorcyclists
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycles account for just 3% of all vehicles on the road. However, motorcycle fatalities occur nearly 29 times more frequently than cars in traffic accidents. On top of the frequency of motorcycle accidents, they are also more dangerous. When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, there is nothing to protect the rider. When drivers are injured in a car accident, they are defended by airbags, steel frames, seat belts, and a very sturdy window.
The attorneys at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers recognize the importance of protecting the right of an injured motorcycle rider to pursue compensation for their damages. We go to work right away for our clients, and we only collect payment when you do. Our goal is to make sure your only concern is your recovery while we fight for a fair settlement or judgment on your behalf.
Once we have taken your case, our team will examine all evidence related to your accident to build a strong case that supports your claim. This includes reviewing:
- Police reports
- Surveillance footage
- Photographs of the crash scene
- Witness accounts
- Medical records
- Income statements
We Can Help Demonstrate Liability
A Vero Beach motorcycle accident lawyer can review the specifics of your case to demonstrate the liable party’s negligence. This requires us to show four things:
- The at-fault party had a duty of care toward the victim. All drivers assume this duty when they get behind the wheel.
- The at-fault party breached their duty of care, such as by speeding, ignoring traffic signals, or driving while impaired by drugs, alcohol, or fatigue.
- The at-fault party’s negligent actions caused the motorcycle accident.
- The accident the negligent party caused resulted in injuries, losses, and other expenses.

Damages You May Be Able to Recover After a Motorcycle Accident
While every case is unique, our team has been able to pursue the following damages for motorcycle accident victims in the past:
- Medical expenses, including hospital fees and ambulance fees
- Ongoing care costs, including rehabilitation, therapy, and prescriptions
- Lost wages, if you were unable to work during your recovery
- Diminished earning capacity, if your injuries will impact your ability to work in the future
- Pain and suffering
If a loved one passed away after a motorcycle accident, we can also file a wrongful death action to pursue compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of consortium, loss of future income, and related damages.
