What is my case worth?
Each case is unique, and its value can only be determined by a combination of factors such as:
- Was there alcohol involved?
- Were you able to return to normal work?
- What is the extent of your injuries?
- Will you require surgery?
- Did you experience permanent physical damage such as scarring?
- How large are your medical bills?
Until we discuss and address these questions it’s impossible to determine the value of a case
There’s no Substitute for an Experienced Attorney?
Christopher Doty understands that motorcycle accident victims rarely receive the compensation they deserve without a legal battle. An insurance adjuster who represents the driver who caused the accident as well as the insurance company, will often reach out to you, the victim, to either record or transcribe your statement. Under no circumstances should you agree to this. Instead, you should explain to the adjuster that you have retained the services of an attorney. Never agree to sign any document without the approval of your attorney. Get the name and contact information of the adjuster and inform them your attorney will contact them. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident in Dunnellon and haven’t yet retained a motorcycle accident attorney, then it’s time to call or contact the Law Offices of Christopher Doty..

What Types of Damages Can I Claim?

- Any lost earnings or benefits as a result of you not being able to work
- Rehabilitation costs such as physical therapy
- Prescription Drugs
- Reimbursement for devices such as walkers, wheelchairs, and other assistive devices

Does Wearing a Helmet Help My Case?
The simple answer is yes. In 2000, Florida repealed the law requiring all motorcyclists wear a helmet. Florida law does stipulate that a motorcycle rider under the age of 21 must wear a helmet. If you are over 21 you can ride without a helmet but must show you carry at least ten thousand dollars in medical insurance. If you are injured in an accident and were not wearing a helmet and the injuries do not include head injuries it will likely not affect the outcome of your case. If you did sustain head injuries and were either compelled by law to wear a helmet or chose not to, the insurance companies are going to try and position this as an unnecessary and preventable assumption of risk. This could influence your outcome.
