Client Review

Can’t exactly say I loved going to an attorney but they are truly 5 star. I retained them in Aug 2017 for injury case that settled April 2018. Communication is the greatest asset in all legal matters and this office is on top of it. If your unhappy or questions arise they are quick to reply and explain and adjust as needed. I have no doubts that they treat all client cases with the upmost care and with due diligence. Highly recommended. You will not simply be another case, you will be a person.

Owning and riding a motorcycle in Zephyrhills 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. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident in our state, our experienced Zephyrhills 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.

Motorcycle Injuries in Zephyrhills

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.

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; and
  • Physical pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress and anguish.

Who pays for a motorcycle accident in Zephyrhills?

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 blindspots;
  • Drive while sober, alert, and free of distractions;
  • Follow posted traffic safety laws; and
  • 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 Zephyrhills

What will a motorcycle accident attorney do for me?

Our job is to improve the outcome of your case and get you the maximum recovery award possible. We will seek to do this by managing an investigation, hiring necessary experts and fronting costs, building your claim, calculating your damages, and negotiating your settlement.

I’ve been offered less than I think I deserve–what should I do?

It’s not uncommon for insurance adjusters to offer claimants far less than their claims are really worth, hoping they can get away with it. If you have been offered a low settlement that you don’t believe fairly compensates you, you do not have to accept it–in fact, you shouldn’t. Instead, reject the settlement and enter into negotiations. An attorney can help.

How long will my claim take?

It can be really frustrating to have suffered major losses and have the claims process drag on and on. While it is impossible to know exactly how long a case will take to settle, we can promise you that we will work hard to resolve your claim as quickly as possible without sacrificing the integrity of your claim or settling for an offer that is less than you deserve.
