Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Serving Largo, Florida
“I couldn’t be happier with having gone with Kemp Ruge & Green! Rob Green and Tiffany have literally been there since day one, they were at the hospital by my side literally after the accident and helped me every step of the way! I’ve had my run with different lawyers in the past and was taken advantage of and they totally did the opposite; they made sure I was taken care of and my family as well. I would recommend them to everyone and only use them in the future if ever needed ( hopefully not) but Tiffany especially was amazing. She is the sweetest and caring woman who made sense of it all for me! I can’t thank all of you enough, especially Tiffany!! Thank you thank you!!! So glad it’s finally over but will definitely miss you!! Definitely choose Robert Green for your attorney!! You will not be disappointed!!”

Motorcycle Injuries In Largo
Owning and riding a motorcycle in Largo may be a more convenient and affordable option than car transportation, making it an attractive choice for many. But riding a motorcycle is risky business, even for those motorcyclists who are especially careful and safe. A motorcycle accident can change your life.
Before you even fully understand what’s happening, you may be dealing with catastrophic injuries. Common injuries in a motorcycle crash include injuries to extremities, including bone fractures and limb crush injuries; soft tissues injuries, such as sprains and strains; internal injuries; injuries to the skin, such as road rash, puncture injuries, and laceration injuries; head and scalp injuries, including traumatic brain injuries; and back and neck injuries, including spinal cord injuries.
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident in our state, our experienced Largo motorcycle injury lawyers want to work with you. Please call the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group directly today to learn more about how we can help.
Costs Associated With A Serious Motorcycle Accident
Not only will a motorcyclist likely suffer severe physical injuries, but they will probably incur financial losses and psychological harm as well. A motorcyclist may expect to deal with:
- High medical bills and ongoing medical treatment costs, including costs of rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost wages and, sometimes, the permanent loss of earning capacity and benefits
- A diminished quality of life as a result of injuries that leave them unable to do basic tasks or the things they once loved
- Physical pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress and anguish
Who Pays For A Motorcycle Accident In Largo?
If you have been in a motorcycle accident and have suffered damages, knowing who’s to blame for the accident will be key in recovering a settlement. In Florida, the party who causes an accident is responsible for paying for it. This means that there will need to be an investigation into your crash to determine what happened and who is liable, or legally responsible. Common actions that lead to motorcycle accidents include drivers failing to:
- Maintain a safe speed
- Look before changing lanes
- Double-check blind spots
- Drive while sober, alert, and free of distractions
- Follow posted traffic safety laws
- Generally exercise safe and responsible driving habits
Amount Of Time To File A Claim
It is always important to provide your insurance company with notice of an accident as soon as possible after it happens, usually within the first 24-48 hours. If you wait too long to tell the insurance company about the accident, they may have legitimate cause to deny your claim. However, you will have four years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit for damages. Usually, claims go through a negotiation or mediation process outside of court before a lawsuit is filed and litigation is pursued.

Common Questions About Motorcycle Accidents in Largo, FL
What are Subrogation Rights?
Subrogation rights are when someone pays benefits on your behalf as a result of a car accident case. It gives them the right to recover those benefits back from the at-fault driver. The most common subrogation rights we deal with are health insurance carriers. If they pay for some of your medical expenses, then they have a right to be reimbursed from the at-fault driver’s insurance, which is your settlement. You really should hire an attorney to make sure you comply with these subrogation rights, because we work with the health insurance companies to reduce the amount of money that you have to pay back to them.
What Constitutes Pain and Suffering in a Florida Auto Accident Case?
Here are some examples of what constitutes pain and suffering in a Florida auto accident case: physical pain, emotional trauma, limitations on daily activities, limitations on abilities at work, depression, scarring, disfigurement, and any kind of post-traumatic stress disorders.
What Documents Should I Bring to My Attorney?
We like you to bring the driver’s exchange of information that the police officer gives you at the scene. We also like you to bring any photographs of damage at the scene. Also bring your health insurance cards and your auto insurance cards or declarations page, so we can review the coverage available to you.
