About Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Roughly 10% of all traffic fatalities in the state involve motorcycle accidents. All too often, at-fault drivers claim that they “didn’t see” the motorcycle. However, in reality, victims advocates have been able to determine that those at-fault drivers were texting someone, using their smartphone, eating, or simply failing to follow rules of the road.

Motorcycles and Injuries
Andreopoulos Law Firm has represented hundreds of victims of motorcycle crashes in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough Counties. While no case is the same and each victim’s suffering is unique, there are some injury types that seem to occur more frequently in association with motorcycle crashes. Some of these injuries include:
- Fractured and broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord damage
Sometimes motorcycle drivers can recover completely from these injuries. Even so, they are still entitled to compensation for their lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Sometimes, however, the situation is more dire. Victims of motorcycle crashes may endure a permanent disability like paralysis. They may lose their ability to work in their chosen career. They may require the amputation of a limb or need personal assistance for the rest of their lives. If a negligent driver has caused these injuries to occur, the victim is entitled to fair compensation.
Fair compensation means differing amounts depending on the particulars of the case. Severe injuries and wrongful deaths demand the most compensation possible under the law. Individuals may sue to be compensated for future medical bills related to the injuries they’ve sustained. They may need substantial and expensive rehabilitation. Future surgeries, missed wages, and lost quality of life are all factors that must be taken into consideration when negotiating and litigating for a fair compensation package.
