Any motorcycle accident can cause serious harm to a rider. Even if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet (which is not required in Florida for riders over the age of 21 who have proper insurance coverage), he or she may sustain catastrophic, life-threatening injuries in a crash. Even a low-speed collision can cause severe abrasions, broken bones, head trauma, and other injuries.
Recovering fair compensation after a motorcycle accident is not easy. The insurance company may act in bad faith in handling your claim, delaying payment or denying your claim altogether. They may offer a settlement that is too low to cover the injuries and losses you have experienced. The complex and difficult nature of motorcycle accident claims warrant the immediate involvement of an attorney. As Jacksonville motorcycle accident attorneys with over 150 years of combined experience and over $1 billion in recoveries, our team at Spohrer Dodd is fully qualified to help you.

Types of Motorcyclist Injuries
Whether a rider is wearing a helmet and other protective gear (boots, jacket, gloves, etc.), he or she may sustain serious injuries in a collision. These may include:
- Traumatic brain injuries

- Road rash
- Amputation/loss of limb
- Spinal cord injuries
- Leg, ankle, and foot injuries
- Internal organ damage
Recovering Fair Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Cases
Considering the severe nature of motorcyclist injuries, the recovery of fair compensation is essential. You may require expensive treatment now and well into the future. If you have experienced a permanent disability, you may need in-home care or assistive devices. You may be unable to return to work for some time, or to return to work at all. If you lost a loved one, you may be dealing with a tremendous amount of emotional trauma, not to mention financial hardship.
It takes a committed and talented Jacksonville motorcycle accident lawyer to recover a fair settlement or award that actually helps you put the pieces of your life back together. That is what we provide here at Spohrer Dodd.
