Compensation You May Recover After a Motorcycle Accident in Ocala

Motorcycle Was Hit by a Car on the Street During a Summer Day

The most joyous part of riding a motorcycle is also the riskiest: exposure. Your body has little protection against the pavement, vehicles, or anything else in the event of an accident, causing serious or even fatal injuries.

You deserve compensation that reflects the full scope of your losses, and our Ocala personal injury lawyers excel at determining what constitutes fair settlements. Compensable losses in your case may include:

  • Medical bills, including anticipated care costs
  • Lost income, both now and in the future
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma and distress
  • The cost of replacing or repairing your motorcycle

Meldon Law Supports Grieving Families in Wrongful Death Cases

If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, please accept our sympathies. No amount of compensation will ease your pain, but still, you deserve coverage for certain losses, including:

  • The decedent’s pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • The family’s loss of financial support
  • The family’s loss of companionship and guidance
  • Funeral and burial costs

Our motorcycle accident attorneys use their experience to guide you through what can be a complicated legal minefield. Rest assured, when our team advocates for you, we fight for every penny you need. We don’t back down from tough claims adjusters and other uncooperative parties. If anything, their resistance fuels our advocacy further.

We’ve Secured Six- and Seven-Figure Settlements for Traffic Accident Claimants

We know what goes into building strong cases, as evidenced by the results we’ve secured for motorcycle accident claimants in situations like yours. Here are some of our stories:

  • Our client was riding her motorcycle when she was hit by a car. Her injuries were so severe that doctors had to amputate her leg. We secured $1.45 million for her injury-related losses.
  • Our client was driving home at midnight when a high-performance sports car collided with their vehicle, resulting in near-fatal injuries. We secured half a million dollars through negotiations.

Your case may have different outcomes than the examples listed above. We consider various aspects of your situation when determining what you need, including your condition’s severity and the impact of the collision on your life. Meldon Law offers aggressive legal representation for each of our clients. We won’t let the insurance company get away with offering less than you need.

How the Motorcycle Accident Attorneys at Meldon Law Serve You

Led by Jeffrey Meldon since 1971, Meldon Law has recovered millions for auto accident claimants, including those injured in motorcycle accidents. While we know that every case requires evidence and an understanding of state law, we bring something unique to the table: commitment. Unlike other firms, we take the outcome of your personal injury case personally. A win for you is a win for us.

When you entrust our case to our results-driven team, we:

  • Evaluate your situation and advise you of your options
  • Calculate the value of a potential claim
  • Review any insurance settlement offers, determine whether they are adequate, and negotiate for a higher offer if the initial one is too low
  • Use our resources to investigate the circumstances of your accident and identify any negligent parties
  • Consulting with accident reconstruction specialists, healthcare providers, and economists on certain aspects of your claim
  • Negotiate with the responsible parties to try to reach a favorable settlement agreement
  • File a lawsuit in civil court if the liable party won’t offer damages
  • Represent you at trial
  • Navigate the legal process and keep you informed of any developments in your case

Too many law firms accept every case that comes their way, which leads them to rush claims through the legal system and accept the first settlement offer on the table. At Meldon Law, we will never settle simply to close the matter. Instead, we dedicate every resource we have to ensure a positive outcome to your motorcycle accident case.

We Pursue Damages From Every Involved Party

You can pursue compensation after a motorcycle accident if the accident happened because of someone else’s negligence. Distracted driving, drunk driving, and violating traffic laws are all common examples of negligence that can lead to crashes. However, drivers are not the only parties that may act carelessly and cause a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle manufacturers may produce and sell defective bikes or parts that cause a motorcyclist to lose control. In addition, some of the roads in and around Ocala might not be properly maintained, leading to collisions caused by roadway defects.

In each of these situations, the fact still remains: you can hold another party accountable for your injury-related expenses. While you focus on healing and rebuilding your life, leave your legal case to us. We’ll handle everything it requires.

Our Lawyers in Ocala File Your Lawsuit Within the Prescribed Deadline

Male Lawyer and His Client Having Meeting

Many clients ask if filing a lawsuit is necessary to recover compensation in a motorcycle accident case. Most situations like yours end with negotiated settlements. Our clients sometimes never see the inside of a courtroom. Yet, if your case does require a lawsuit, no need to worry. Our experienced litigators consider Ocala’s civil courts their home away from home. In fact, we enjoy tackling the challenges that come with complex cases.

Still, to have a viable lawsuit, you must file your lawsuit within two years from the accident’s date, per HB 837. That’s not a long time when considering negotiations, your case’s investigation, and other relevant factors. That’s why we encourage you to connect with us as soon as possible. We organize all deadlines from the very beginning, upholding your right to damages.

We are Florida natives who love working with clients and serving communities in all areas of the state. At Meldon Law, we feel that what we do every day is not a job; it’s a calling, and we strive to be part of the fabric of our community. Here is a sampling of how we do that:

We’re the Official Law Firm of the Florida Gators

What Happens if I Contributed to the Accident? Can I Still Recover Damages?

Overturned Motorcycle and Helmet on the Street After Collision with the Car

Florida recently had sweeping changes made to its personal injury system. Among many things, HB 837 altered how the state views fault. If you caused more than 50 percent of the accident (51 percent bar), you cannot recover damages. Why is this important? Well:

  • If the other party asserts that you caused most of the accident, you can’t recover damages. This could leave the financial burden of the accident and your injuries on your shoulders.
  • Evidence collection is crucial to asserting the other party’s negligence. Thankfully, our team comprises investigators who can gather traffic camera footage, eyewitness testimony, and the police report to bolster your claim.
  • Without our law firm, arguing fault can quickly turn into a tiring, endless debate. You could go back and forth for months and not make any headway. Our lawyers have a full understanding of what goes into asserting fault and tell an accurate story of what happened.

Does this sound confusing? Don’t worry––you don’t have to attend the University of Florida and become a lawyer yourself to recover damages. You want a seasoned advocate by your side, and that’s where Meldon Law comes in. We don’t have patience for anyone who tries to cheat our clients out of what they need.

We Advocate for Motorcyclists Suffering From These Injuries in Ocala

Motorcyclists can sustain devastating injuries in crashes. Yet, no matter your injury’s severity, our law firm extends a helping hand. We take on cases that other lawyers shy away from.

We advocate for people in the aftermath of suffering:

  • Skull fractures
  • Brain injuries
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Shattered or crushed bones
  • Burns
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries

After an Ocala motorcycle crash, most riders will need immediate medical treatment, such as ER trauma care, surgery, and the care needed during recovery. We don’t want you to forgo a single aspect of your treatment plan because you’re concerned about cost. Your lawyer can consult with healthcare professionals and other experts to calculate your losses and pursue them accordingly.
