Recoverable Losses Following a Fort Lauderdale Bicycle Accident
When we pursue a financial award on behalf of a Broward County bicycle accident victim, we use the estimated value of their economic and non-economic accident-related losses to determine what a fair payout may look like. This estimation allows us to fight for a just settlement and take the case to court if the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith.
To assign a fair settlement value to a case like this, we consider a wide range of accident-related recoverable expenses and losses, which includes:
- Current and future medical expenses.
- Current and future lost wages.
- Diminished earning capacity if you cannot return to your job.
- Other losses and expenses related to the accident or your injuries.
- Pain and suffering.
- Loss of consortium.
Other types of damages that you may qualify to pursue based on the facts of your case may include:
- A punitive award if we can prove the motorist acted in an intentional or grossly negligent way.
- Compensation for wrongful death for certain surviving immediate family members of a bicycle accident victim who passed away as a result of their injuries.
Any of these awards may apply depending on the circumstances of your accident and as long as you take legal action in the allowed time frame.
You Only Have a Limited Time to File Suit Under Florida Law
Florida’s statute of limitations (Florida Statutes 95.11) on personal injury accidents only allows you a limited time to file a lawsuit in civil court and try to hold the at-fault motorist legally liable. Accident victims could lose the right to hold the at-fault party or parties accountable if they wait too long to take legal action.
For reaching an insurance settlement in bicycle accident cases, abiding by the statutes of limitations can help you secure the right to file a lawsuit in your case if necessary. We encourage you to act quickly and call us as soon as possible after your accident—and after seeking immediate medical attention—to ensure your rights remain protected.
