    Motorcycle crashes are all too uncommon. When victims are injured in Pembroke Pines, they can hold a negligent party accountable by filing a lawsuit to recover compensatory damages.

    No two motorcycle accident claims are the same, meaning they vary in length. The amount of time it takes for your case to conclude will depend on the length of settlement negotiations and a possible trial. Calculating damages prior to filing will be important so that you know how much you should recover in economic and non-economic damages in your case. Victims of motorcycle crashes can sue in Pembroke Pines, regardless of how severe their injuries might be. For the best chances of a successful recovery, victims should bring their claims as soon as possible following a motorcycle crash.

    To have our Pembroke Pines motorcycle accident lawyers analyze your case for free, call The Law Offices of David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A. at (954) 751-4258.

    Average Length of Motorcycle Accident Claims in Pembroke Pines

    Every motorcycle accident lawsuit is different, meaning they all take varying amounts of time to complete. Our motorcycle accident lawyers will assess a few different factors to give you a better idea of how long it might be before you can recover compensation in Pembroke Pines.

    In Florida, motorcyclists are not covered by personal injury protection insurance, meaning they may have to file lawsuits in order to recover sufficient compensation following an accident in Pembroke Pines. Lawsuits vary in length, and the amount of time it may take for you to recover compensatory damages will depend on the specifics of your case.

    For example, suppose there is little evidence of fault, and you enter into settlement negotiations. In that case, a negligent party might delay your recovery by attempting to get you to agree to an insufficient settlement. To avoid this situation and speed up the process, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident to find evidence that compels a defendant to settle at an appropriate amount. If negotiations drag on for far too long and impede the recovery process, we might advise you to go to court.

    How long it will take for your motorcycle accident claim to go to trial will depend on the volume of cases at the time. Once your case reaches the court docket, the length of the trial will be based on the details of your case and the evidence a defendant provides to refute your claim. It could be anywhere from several weeks to several years before a victim recovers compensation in Pembroke Pines. That said, if there is compelling evidence in your favor, you can claim the damages you deserve, regardless of how long the recovery process might take you.

    Calculating Your Damages from a Motorcycle Crash in Pembroke Pines

    Calculating damages in a motorcycle claim is important so that victims in Pembroke Pines have a clearer idea of the compensation available to them in a lawsuit.

    Economic Damages

    To calculate your economic damages, our lawyers will compile all records and documents of financial losses you have incurred as a result of a motorcycle crash. This includes things like medical bills, lost wages, and more. Because recovery of economic losses relies on proof of damages, it is crucial that victims keep all records of their financial losses from the moment a motorcycle accident occurs in Pembroke Pines. There is no limitation on the amount of money victims can recover for economic damages in Florida.

    Non-Economic Damages

    Similar to economic damages, there is no cap on non-economic damages in motorcycle accident claims in Florida. Calculating these damages poses more challenges, as pain and suffering does not have a monetary value. To do this, our lawyers might use various methods, such as the per diem or multiplier methods. This will allow us to request a more accurate amount of non-economic damages in your lawsuit. We will submit proof of non-economic damages to reinforce your request for damages related to pain and suffering. This might be in the form of statements from therapists attesting to a victim’s mental state following an accident or statements from victims themselves.

    When to File a Pembroke Pines Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit

    If you are at all injured because of a negligent party’s actions during a motorcycle accident in Pembroke Pines, you should file a lawsuit to recover compensation. This is best done immediately after an incident occurs.

    Unlike in cases of car accidents, motorcycle accident victims are not limited regarding their ability to file a lawsuit based on their injuries in Florida. This means that even the most minor injuries can entitle victims of motorcycle crashes to sue for compensation. That said, injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often severe because of the nature of these incidents.

    It generally benefits victims to file a claim as soon as possible. Waiting too long to do so could make it appear as though your injuries are unrelated to a defendant’s negligence or do not warrant compensation of any kind. Delaying your claim could also cause you to miss the filing deadline, which will be two years from the date of your accident in Pembroke Pines.

    To prevent this from happening, contact our lawyers immediately after you are injured while riding your motorcycle. Our attorneys can identify who is at fault for your injuries and help you pursue compensation via a lawsuit. Success in your claim will largely be based on the evidence you can provide in support of your case, which is why we will investigate the situation as thoroughly as possible. Again, do not hesitate to file your case, as doing so could, unfortunately, negatively impact your chances of recovery in Pembroke Pines.

    “…the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated”

    Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    “Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
