Pursuing Compensation for Passengers Injured in Motorcycle Accidents
Riding on the back of a motorcycle can be an enjoyable and addicting experience. Unfortunately, riding as a passenger on a motorcycle also comes with a great deal of risk; thousands of passengers are seriously injured or killed in motorcycle accidents every year. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding on the back of a motorcycle, it is important to understand your rights to pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
At the law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., our Pensacola biker passenger rights attorneys offer aggressive and insightful representation to passengers injured in motorcycle accidents throughout the Florida Panhandle area. With more than 35 years of experience, we have the skills and knowledge needed to help you pursue the maximum compensation available for your losses.
In our years in practice, we have successfully advocated for passengers who have sustained a wide range of injuries and losses, including:
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Brain and head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of a loved one
Passengers Have Rights Too
Unfortunately, many passengers who are injured in motorcycle accidents face an uphill battle to recover compensation for their losses; insurance carriers do not always extend coverage to passengers, leaving you searching for compensation through other channels.
Our staff has the experience needed to help you pursue compensation through any avenue necessary. In the event that your accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, we will negotiate with their insurer to attempt to reach a settlement that covers your losses. In other cases, especially those in which the accident was caused by the person at the controls of the motorcycle, we will attempt to pursue compensation through their insurance carrier.
Whether we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement or need to take your case to trial, we will not rest until we have explored every available option to help you recover the compensation you need to cover your medical bills and other expenses.
