You don’t file a claim every day, but your Lakeland motorcycle accident lawyer at Lopez & Humphries, PA does. Call us to discuss your accident. In the meantime, read through the questions and answers below for additional information that could be useful to you.
How is a motorcycle crash case investigated?
One of the most important duties your Lakeland motorcycle wreck lawyer must perform is that of investigating your accident. Your attorney will examine all available evidence, sometimes even recreating crash scenes, to figure out what happened and who was responsible.
Will the seriousness of my injuries affect my compensation amount?
Yes. The more serious your injuries are, the greater your damages are. Your compensation will correlate with your damages. For instance, if you are permanently injured and can’t return to work, you can be compensated for lost income you could have earned had the accident not occurred.
Is it likely that I’ll be going to court to win compensation?
It’s not likely at all, but it is possible. Most Lakeland motorcycle crash cases will be settled out of the courtroom. However, there is a small chance that your case will go to court. Don’t be afraid of court. Your attorney will thoroughly prepare you should it ever come to that.
What’s the difference between economic and non-economic damages?
The difference between economic damages and non-economic damages is that the former refers to the financial losses you’ve been forced to deal with because of your accident; the latter refers to the ways the accident has changed your life in a negative way, such as emotionally.
What if I can’t afford a Lakeland motorcycle collision lawyer?
Lawyers at our firm work on a contingency fee basis when it comes to motorcycle crash cases. That means that you don’t pay for your attorney’s services unless and until we win your injury case. After you win the compensation you deserve, our fees will be deducted from the settlement amount.
