Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Tampa Assert Riders’ Rights
Capable legal representation for serious injuries to bikers and passengers in Florida
The great weather and heavily congested traffic in the Tampa Bay Area make motorcycle riding an attractive option for many residents. However, riders and their passengers are extremely vulnerable in Florida, the leading state for motorcycle traffic fatalities. If you sustain a serious injury on I-4, I-75, U.S. 41, or any surface street in the Tampa area, Sessums Law Group is prepared to help you obtain the full compensation you deserve. Drawing on more than 35 years of combined legal experience, our accident attorneys assert your rights aggressively and fight for the maximum award possible.
How our Tampa legal team helps victims of motorcycle accidents
A serious motorcycle accident often means a long road to recovery. But while you focus on regaining your health, your chances of recovering compensation diminish with each passing day. Physical evidence is lost and destroyed, and witnesses slip away or start to forget what transpired. Rather than let that happen, you can reach out to Sessums Law Group and get immediate assistance, such as:
- Accident scene investigation
- Preservation of physical evidence
- Examination of the vehicles involved in the accident
- Testing of any suspect vehicle parts
- Accident reconstruction
- Witness interviews and depositions
- Identification and questioning of potential defendants
- Expert medical evaluation of your injuries
- Negotiation with insurance companies
Under a contingency fee agreement, all of this assistance is available without any upfront legal fees, so you can have every advantage of professional representation without worrying about how you might pay.
Severe motorcycle accident injuries cry out for full compensation
Because motorcyclists are exposed to impacts from other vehicles as well as the hard road surface, their injuries tend to be more severe than those suffered by occupants in other vehicle accidents. Common personal injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Concussions and traumatic brain injury
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash
When bikers are not wearing protective equipment, the injuries can be even worse: loss of toes and feet, paralysis, and wrongful death are not uncommon.
Severe injuries demand the maximum compensation possible. If a negligent driver is responsible for your accident, you are entitled to recover the following damages:
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills related to the injury
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost income and future lost income due to the injury
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium
Our legal team consults with medical and financial experts to establish the full extent of your losses and make a compelling case for the amount of damages you deserve.
The challenge to proving negligence in a motorcycle accident case
Even when motorcyclists are seriously injured, they face more hurdles in court than victims of auto accidents do. Defense attorneys work hard to reinforce stereotypes of bikers as risk-takers prone to unsafe maneuvers to convince a jury that you are somehow responsible for your own injuries. They use lowball offers and delay tactics to persuade you to settle for much less than your case is worth. But with our experienced legal team at your side, you get reliable counsel on how to proceed through every step of the process, as we work diligently to assemble the evidence to build a powerful case.
