While Hudson may be a beautiful place in which to ride a motorcycle–with good weather year-round with the exception of high humidity and heat (which isn’t so bad on a motorcycle) and the chance of a downpour–riding a motorcycle isn’t a risk-free activity, regardless of where you live. In fact, riding a motorcycle is dangerous, and the risk of suffering severe injuries in the event of a crash is high. At the law office of Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, our Hudson motorcycle accident lawyers know that a crash can change your life. If you’ve been injured, we can help.

Hudson Motorcycle Accidents

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, our law firm will work hard to build your claim, prove the fault of the responsible party, and get you the settlement that you deserve. We’re here to guide you through everything you need to know about the process.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents

Most motorcycle accidents occur because of a party’s negligence–either the driver of the passenger car involved or the motorcyclist. Top causes of motorcycle crashes that we’ve seen include speeding, drinking while driving, driving while distracted, and aggressive driving, including illegal maneuvers and failure to check one’s blind spots.

Injuries from motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents are devastating because the injuries that a person may suffer in a crash may be life-changing. Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries;
  • Back, neck, and spinal injuries, including paralyzing spinal cord injuries;
  • Internal injuries and internal bleeding;
  • Injuries to extremities, including amputation injuries, crush injuries, and bone fracture injuries;
  • Road rash/road burn injuries; and
  • More, including psychological injuries.

Who pays for a motorcycle crash in Hudson?

Liability–or legal responsibility–for a motorcycle accident in Hudson is based on fault. Our lawyers will work hard to investigate your accident and build a strong case providing the fault of the responsible party. We’ll then file a claim against the at-fault party’s liability insurance provider, which should pay for your damages. In some cases, compensation may also be available through your own insurance policy, too, depending on the coverage types you carry. Our team will assist you in exploring the various sources of compensation available to you.

“Brandon, Stacy, Stephanie & Nicole – thank you for your kind and loving support through this challenging time. You all have been so wonderful! Much love!”

-Kara

One of the most terrifying types of motor vehicle accidents is a truck accident. Trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds–that’s nearly 20 times more than the average passenger car. When a car and a large truck collide, the smaller vehicle is often completely totaled, and any occupants of that vehicle may be severely injured, if not fatally injured. At the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, we understand how devastating truck accidents are, as well as how the aftermath of a truck accident can be painful, confusing, frustrating, and can seem to drag on for an excruciatingly long amount of time. While our team cannot undo what has happened to you, we can offer legal support and representation as you navigate the claims process. If you’ve been in a crash, please reach out to our law firm directly today for a free consultation.

Hudson Truck Accidents

If you’ve been in a truck accident and are dealing with severe injuries, we know that you have a lot of questions. We hope that we can provide you with the information and support that you need during this difficult time.

Liability for a Hudson truck accident

One of the most important things to do in the aftermath of a truck accident is to determine who should be held liable–or legally responsible–for the crash and your damages. Liability in a truck accident can be very complicated, as various theories of liability may exist and many parties may be partially at fault. Potentially liable parties in a truck accident claim include:

  • The truck driver;
  • The trucking company;
  • A third-party passenger car driver;
  • The shipper or loader of cargo;
  • The vehicle manufacturer;
  • The party responsible for road or vehicle maintenance.

How our lawyers can serve you

Working with a skilled truck accident attorney could have a very positive effect on the outcome of your claim. When you choose our law firm, you can count on us to investigate your claim thoroughly, hire any necessary experts, determine and prove liability, calculate the value of your claim based on your damages, preserve evidence, file a demand letter, review and negotiate your settlement, and file a lawsuit and litigate your case if necessary. We will provide you with all of the information you need related to navigating the claims process, will remain available and accessible to answer your questions as needed, and will serve as an advocate for you.

Statute of limitations for a truck accident claim

If you are involved in a truck accident and are filing a truck accident lawsuit, you will have a limited amount of time to do so. We recommend initiating the claims process as soon as possible for a number of reasons, including to preserve evidence and to improve your chances of recovering compensation as soon as possible. In addition to these reasons, though, know that if you wait more than four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for damages, your claim will be barred based on a breach of the statute of limitations, per Florida Statutes Section 95.11.

Common Questions About Truck Accidents in Hudson

  • What is my claim worth?
  • One of the first questions that most of our clients ask us is, “What is my claim worth?” Unfortunately, we will not be able to tell you the value of your claim until after we have thoroughly reviewed all of the evidence in your case, including things like doctors bills and medical reports, wage and income statements, psychiatrists’/mental health professionals’ opinions, financial professionals’ opinions, and more. That being said, we are committed to fighting to get you your full settlement amount, which means compensation for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses.
  • How long will my case take?
  • Like knowing the value of your claim, we also won’t be able to tell you how long your case will take to settle, as this will depend on a number of different factors, including how complex your case is, the degree of your damages, and the degree of cooperation on the part of the insurance companies involved. We aim to settle your case as quickly as possible without accepting a settlement that doesn’t fairly compensate you.
  • Can I file a claim on the behalf of a loved one killed in a truck accident in Hudson?
  • Losing a loved one in a truck accident is devastating. If you are the surviving family member of someone who has been killed in a Hudson truck accident, our law firm can represent you as you pursue damages through a wrongful death suit.

Of all of the types of accidents that can happen, car accidents are one of the most common. Indeed, car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in our country, and Hudson is no exception. If you have been in a Hudson car accident, our attorneys realize that you may have numerous questions about your rights, what happens next, who will pay for damages, how long your claim will take to settle, and more. Our team at the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group can provide you with the legal counsel and support you need as you go through this difficult time.

A car accident in Hudson can happen in the blink of an eye.

Our lawyers will assist you by providing you with a free case consultation and, if you decide to hire us, we will investigate your case, prove fault, build your claim, calculate your damages, file a demand letter, and negotiate your settlement.

Top causes of car accidents

Car accidents are almost always the cause of the negligence of one of the drivers involved. Over the years, we’ve seen car accidents caused by things such as drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, aggressive driving, and failing to follow traffic laws and basic safety common sense. In addition to negligence, car accidents may also be caused by things like road defects and dangerous conditions, signage errors, and vehicle defects.

Liability for a Hudson car accident

When a car accident occurs in Hudson, liability will be based on fault. Before you bring forth a claim against another driver, though, you’ll need to file a claim against your own policy’s personal injury protection coverage. This is because Florida is a no-fault car accident state, which means that regardless of fault, damages will be pursued against one’s own insurance. You can step outside of the no-fault system, however, if you suffer serious injuries. If this is the case, you can bring forth a claim directly against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance coverage.

Damages recoverable in a Hudson car accident claim

Our lawyers want to make sure that you are compensated in full for the damages that you suffer. Damages that are recoverable include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage costs;
  • Lost wages; and
  • Pain and suffering.

Common Questions About Car Accidents in Hudson

  • What if the other driver doesn’t have insurance?
  • Fortunately, because Florida is a no-fault state, your first source of recovery will be your own insurance provider, which means that you should be able to recover compensation even if the other driver doesn’t have coverage. In addition to personal injury protection coverage, you may also carry other coverage types, such as uninsured/underinsured coverage.
  • What happens if I am offered less than I think I deserve or my claim is denied?
  • You do not have to accept a settlement offer and, most of the time, rejecting a first settlement offer is the smart thing to do, as claims are often lowballed. If you are offered less than you think that you deserve, you can negotiate for a larger settlement amount. If your claim is denied, you can appeal the denial–our law firm can help.
  • Can I file a lawsuit?
  • You maintain the right to file a lawsuit after a car accident in Florida if your injuries meet the state’s serious injury threshold. However, while you may have the right to file a lawsuit, doing so is rarely advised unless a settlement cannot be reached. Lawsuits can be expensive and their outcomes unknown.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a type of civil action that is brought by an injury victim (known as a plaintiff) against the party responsible for damages (known as the defendant). Typically, personal injury claims are filed against an at-fault party’s liability insurance provider. In a personal injury action, a plaintiff is responsible for proving that the defendant owed them a duty of care, breached the duty of care owed to them, and that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of harm. You’ll also need to prove that damages have been incurred.

Damages recoverable in a personal injury claim

This includes compensation for your medical expenses and future medical expenses, compensation for your lost wages and loss of earning ability, compensation for any property damage costs you have incurred, and compensation for our pain, suffering, and emotional distress.

Common Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Hudson

  • Do I need to have a lawyer?
  • You are not required to hire a lawyer for your personal injury claim; however, hiring a lawyer is strongly recommended. An attorney can support you by building evidence, hiring experts, calculating your damages, and advocating for you throughout the process. An attorney will have a much better understanding of what steps you need to take to protect your interests, and will be able to provide you with knowledgeable advice that’s relevant to you. Your claim has a stronger chance of success when you work with an attorney.
  • How much time do I have to file a personal injury claim?
  • You should start the process of filing your personal injury claim as soon as possible. That being said, you will have four years from the date of your accident in order to file a lawsuit. If you breach the four-year deadline, you will be barred from recovery.
  • What’s the difference between a claim and a lawsuit?
  • Most of the time, a personal injury claim resolves without litigation. Instead of filing a lawsuit, a claim is filed against a liability insurance provider. It is usually only when negotiations fail with an insurance adjuster that a lawsuit is filed. A lawsuit is a last-resort option; lawsuits can be effective, but they are expensive, time-consuming, and emotional.
  • If you have been injured in Hudson and are filing a lawsuit, you’ll need to do so with the Pasco County Clerk. Our lawyers work in Hudson and are familiar with the various institutions and people that will be important to building your claim.
