What Types of Compensation Do You Get for a Motorcycle Wreck?
Depending on your situation, you may qualify to receive both economic and non-economic compensation after a motorcycle wreck in Florida.
Economic compensation covers financial expenses directly caused by your accident. For example, medical bills and vehicle repairs may fall under the umbrella of ‘economic’ damages.
Non-economic damages do not have a direct dollar value in many cases. These funds cover the pain, suffering, and mental anguish caused by a collision. Your attorney can track all the losses caused by your wreck.

What Compensation Do You Get for Medical Costs?
Motorcycle accidents often result in incredibly severe injuries, like concussions, neck or back injuries, paralysis, damage to organs, and broken bones. You may have a chance to file a claim to secure funds to fully address your:
- Emergency treatment and travel time in an ambulance
- Diagnostic medical assessments and tests
- Medical treatments, including surgeries
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
You may also receive funds to cover any medications required during your recovery. Your attorney can track all of these costs by collecting medical documentation and notes from your doctors.
Note that you may also qualify to receive funds to help with the travel costs if you have to drive to make it to your medical appointments.
What Funds Do You Get for Lost Pay?
Common motorcycle accident injuries often require motorcyclists to take time off work so they can recover. Your attorney can help you seek funds to cover the pay, bonuses, and raises you lost while off work.
Some collisions may leave you with injuries that prevent you from rejoining the workforce, like paralysis or the loss of your limbs. This can diminish your earning potential. We may help you get damages to address this situation.
Can You Get Damages for Property Damage?
You may also have the chance to secure compensation to cover the costs of repairing your motorcycle. Sometimes, these collisions will total a motorcycle, in which case you may qualify for funds to replace the vehicle.
We can track the extent of your property damage expenses by collecting repair bills and other documentation.
Can You Get Funds for Property Other Than Your Motorcycle?
We understand that a motorcycle wreck can damage other pieces of your property, like your cell phone. You may also have a chance to seek funds to cover these losses in some circumstances.

How Do You Get Damages for a Motorcycle Accident?
If you sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may file a claim for compensation through your PIP insurance policy in Florida. In many cases, the state expects you to seek damages through this process.
However, you may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit if you sustained a permanent injury. This step may allow you to seek additional funds for your losses. We can review your situation and see if you qualify for a lawsuit.
How Long Does it Take to Collect Damages After a Motorcycle Wreck?
Once you file your motorcycle accident claim, you can expect to wait a few months for damages if you decide to settle. Personal injury lawsuits generally take longer to resolve, and it may take over a year to get funds if you choose this option.
