Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Clearwater & Holiday, FL
With Florida’s glorious weather and sunshine, it’s no wonder that so many drivers prefer to get from here to there riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, in recent years, Florida has led the nation in motorcycle-related deaths. According to recent roadway data, Florida has experienced a 30% increase in motorcycle-related deaths. While some accidents are unfortunate accidents, there are many situations where the collision or ‘accident’ could have been prevented. Many motorcycle riders have suffered injuries or wrongful death because of another driver’s carelessness or recklessness.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident because of another’s fault, you may be eligible for damages by law. Andreopoulos Law Firm has represented hundreds of clients in and around Holiday & Clearwater, FL. Attorney John Andreopoulos focuses his practice in personal injury law, including cases that involved motorcycles and other motor vehicles. John founded the firm in 2002, and for the last six years he has worked tirelessly to effectively represent victims of motorcycle accidents. If John represents you, you will not be charged until he successfully negotiates your settlement or prevails in your court case.
About Motorcycle Accidents
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. Distracted and inattentive drivers often cause serious accidents. We’ve handled cases involving illegal lane changes, drunk driving, missed stop signs, and many other commonplace causes of roadway crashes. However, there’s nothing commonplace about the services John Andreopoulos provides. He is willing to aggressively pursue justice for the victims of motorcycle crashes so that they or their families achieve fair compensation.
Motorcycle riders are at increased risk for suffering injuries than an automobile driver in the event of a crash. Obviously, motorcyclists have little protection when they’re out on the roads; they aren’t surrounded by a steel frame and airbags. Consequently, motorcyclists may sustain serious, life-threatening injuries if they’re involved in a roadway crash. If another driver is at fault, they are liable for damages. Insurance providers will do their utmost to pay injured parties as little as possible, but Attorney John Andreopoulos will aggressively pursue justice for his clients. He’ll seek damages to help alleviate his client’s often-devastating situation. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle crash in Clearwater, FL, you may be entitled to compensation for missed work, medical bills (because personal injury insurance only covers the first $10,000), and pain and suffering.
What Can a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Do for You?
When John Andreopoulos meets with a client or a family who is suffering from the loss of a loved one, he can see at a glance that the most important thing for them to do is heal. But the stress of a personal injury, pain and grief, and the threat of financial ruin often hangs in the air. John will stand by you during your legal journey and he will do everything in his power to see that you are fairly compensated for what you’ve endured. Some of the things he can do to help you win your claim include:
- Investigate the scene of the accident
- Procure the services of an accident reconstructionist if needed
- Examine the vehicles involved in the collision
- Obtain witness statements and depositions
- Handle all communication with insurers
- Manage all paperwork and documents related to the case
- Procure expert medical assessment of your injuries
- Communicate with you about all matters related to the case
- Arrive punctually for court dates and meetings
- Provide you with expert legal counsel and representation in court or during negotiations
In addition, John understands how financially difficult these experiences can be. That’s why we’ve chosen not to charge our fees unless we can successfully achieve a settlement or win the case through litigation. Attorney John Andreopoulos is that committed to your case and he is confident in his experience to successfully resolve it.
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 riders 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.
The amount of compensation may differ 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, lost wages, and lost quality of life are all factors that must be taken into consideration when negotiating and litigating for a fair compensation package.
Andreopoulos Law Firm will work diligently to preserve your legal rights if you’ve been the victim of a motorcycle crash. Too often, it’s the motorcycle rider who has obeyed the rules of the road and the other driver is at fault. Even if you don’t have all the information on hand relating to your accident, it’s best to consult John as soon as possible. John Andreopoulos can provide you with professional legal advice from start.
