We Offer Legal Help at No Upfront Cost

As part of the Whitley Advantage, we support motorcycle accident claimants on a contingency-fee basis. This arrangement empowers you to hire a lawyer regardless of your financial standing. That’s because:

  • You pay nothing upfront.
  • We don’t charge hourly rates or retainers.
  • A pre-determined percentage of your settlement pays for our help.
  • You owe nothing if your case doesn’t yield compensation.

We want everyone to have access to legal representation in their times of need. You can learn more about this arrangement during your complimentary case review.

Recoverable Damages in Jacksonville Motorcycle Crashes

We understand that compensation can’t totally undo your trauma and injuries. Yet, it can go a long way in making the collision’s aftermath more manageable. Compensable losses in a motorcycle accident case include:

  • Lost wages. This category represents paychecks you missed when you could not work because you were recuperating from your injuries.
  • Medical expenses. Usually, the reasonable cost of the medical treatment you needed for your wounds is recoverable.
  • Rehabilitation. Life-changing injuries, like traumatic brain injuries, might require the motorcyclist to receive specialized care in a rehabilitation center. You can include those costs in your claim or lawsuit’s value.
  • Long-term care. When a person suffers devastating injuries (like paralysis from spinal cord damage), they might not be able to live independently. Just like with everything else on this list, the cost of hiring in-home help is compensable.
  • Future lost wages. If you suffered severe injuries that affect your ability to earn a living, you might have a claim for future lost wages.
  • Pain and suffering. This covers the physical discomfort and emotional distress of your motorcycle accident.
  • Other non-economic damages. Catastrophic wounds can cause other types of losses, like disfigurement from extensive scars and amputations, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the loss of enjoyment of life.

We can file a wrongful death claim for other damages if your loved one passed away in a motorcycle collision. The team at Whitley Law Firm would be honored to manage your case’s obligations and support your family throughout this challenging time.

You Have a Limited Time to Seek Damages in a Jacksonville Motorcycle Case

If someone else caused your Jacksonville motorcycle collision, an attorney from our firm can pursue damages. However, we don’t have an unlimited time to seek damages via litigation.

The filing deadline for personal injury cases is three years (G.S. § 1-52). For wrongful death lawsuits, the statute of limitations is only two years (G.S. § 1-53). If you wait too long to file your lawsuit, and these deadlines expire, you could lose the right to seek damages. We don’t want that to happen. So, we encourage you to connect with our family-owned-and-operated firm at your earliest convenience.

Your Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Determine Fault for Your Collision

Papers Signing, Agreement and Lawyer Consulting

Your lawyer needs evidence to determine who is responsible for your losses. Supporting information can include the accident report, traffic camera footage, and eyewitness testimony. A motorist or government agency could have liability. Consider the following:

  • A motorcycle passenger might be able to sue the motorcycle operator for speeding, driving recklessly, or operating the motorcycle while impaired by drugs or alcohol.
  • Motorcycle operators and their passengers could sue the driver of another vehicle who negligently caused an accident.
  • The state or local government agency responsible for maintaining safe streets could get sued if its negligence caused a motorcycle crash.

Depending on your circumstances, there might be additional parties who could be liable for your Jacksonville motorcycle accident injury claim.

We Advocate for Injured Jacksonians With These Injuries

In motorcycle accident cases, we must demonstrate that the negligent party did something that a “reasonable person” would not have done or failed to do something that a “reasonable person” would have done.

The plaintiff must also be able to show that this breach proximately resulted in personal injuries and damages, such as the following:

  • Cuts, lacerations, and abrasions
  • Permanent scarring
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Soft-tissue injuries

Don’t worry if you don’t see your exact condition outlined above. If you suffered injuries that required medical attention, you have a friend and advocate in Whitley Law Firm.
