I injured my knee and ankle in a motorcycle crash because another driver pulled out in front of me. I can’t work because my job requires the use of my legs, but the insurance company isn’t willing to pay me what I need to get by on. What can I do?
There are many professions such as construction that are physically demanding. When someone gets injured outside of work and can’t physically do their job, they may not get paid until they are well and can return to work. It is not fair that an innocent person loses income due to no fault of their own.
If your Sarasota motorcycle accident was caused due to the negligence or recklessness of another driver, you may have rights to get compensated for your lost income through a Florida personal injury lawsuit. You may be entitled to a financial recovery for your medical bills, physical therapy, instances of pain and suffering, and lost wages.
A personal injury lawsuit could get settled with the insurance company outside of court. However, if the insurance company is not willing to settle your claim for what you want or deserve, then your lawyer can pursue it all the way through to trial.
