How Do Motorcycle Accidents Occur in Bradenton?

Motorcycle accidents can happen for a number of different reasons. Most motorcycle accidents occur when another vehicle collides with a motorcyclist. These motorcycle-vehicle accidents are often caused by motorist’s negligence. Some examples of negligence that can lead to a motorcycle crash include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Misjudging distances or speeds

Sadly, it’s usually the motorcyclists that suffer serious injuries in accidents caused by negligent drivers. This is because motorcyclists are not protected by seatbelts or airbags, so they can sustain devastating injuries in a crash. Fortunately, if you were injured by a negligent driver, you are entitled to compensation.

How Much Money Can I Get For My Motorcycle Accident Injuries?

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Every motorcycle accident claim is different. But in general, motorcycle accident claims are high-value cases due to the severity of the injuries involved.

Can I Still Recover Compensation If I Was At Fault For the Motorcycle Accident?

Most people know that they can recover compensation if they were injured in a motorcycle accident that was not their fault. But few understand that it is also possible to recover compensation in a crash that was partially their fault. The comparative negligence laws in Bradenton allow injured motorcyclists to recover compensation even if they were partially responsible for the accident. However, the amount of compensation that they are awarded will be reduced to account for their percentage of fault.

For example, say the court finds that you were 25% at fault for a motorcycle accident and the other driver was 75% at fault. If you were entitled to $100,000 for your injuries, you will only receive $75,000 since you were 25% to blame for the accident.

If you were partly to blame for a motorcycle crash, don’t let this stop you from filing a personal injury claim and securing the compensation you deserve.
