Catastrophic injury claim after a motorcycle accident
When a motorcyclist has been struck by a moving vehicle, their injuries can be often be serious, regardless as to how fast the vehicle was traveling.
In some cases, the injuries may require long-term hospitalization. In others, the injuries may be life-threatening. Surgeries, rehabilitation and continued care are often part of the recovery plan.
The physical recovery from a motorcycle accident is stressful enough on its own, but when you add the layer of financial insecurity that comes with being unable to work, the pressure can feel overwhelming.
If you or someone you care for has sustained a catastrophic injury as a result of a motorcycle accident, you should seek help from a reputable, experienced Naples, Florida law firm.

Accident victims who are suffering from a catastrophic injury should know they may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries. Working with a Naples FL law firm will help ensure you get the highest level of compensation you deserve.
When you contact our firm, we’ll schedule a time for you to receive a free, no-obligation case evaluation. We can help you understand how personal injury cases work along with how long you have to file, and how much compensation you might be eligible to receive.
We can also help you understand how long the case might take to conclude. Remember, personal injury litigation does not move swiftly, and it’s not unusual for cases to take months, if not years to conclude.
Lastly, we’d urge you to not try to negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company on your own. Insurance companies are more concerned about protecting their bottom line; they are not concerned about making sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to. A $20, 000 settlement check may seem like a lot today, but the cost of your long-term care may far exceed that in the future.
