In Detail...

I am attorney Juana Maria Rojas. During my twenties, I rode a motorcycle for a few years.  I stopped riding, because one of my friends lost her leg after she was struck by a car who didn’t see her. It’s easy for a driver to fail to see or misjudge a motorcycle’s distance. And a car vs. motorcycle crash nearly always means serious, life altering injuries to the cyclist.

Often, the driver’s insurance is inadequate to even pay for the cyclist’s medical expenses.  I understand how badly a cyclist can be undercompensated as a result of these crashes. For that reason, one of the first steps I take is to check all insurance limits and let my client know usually within 48 hours after I am retained. There are steps an experienced attorney can take immediately after a crash to ensure maximum recovery. But this action must be taken right away. I will visit you at the hospital or home. The consultation is free and without any obligation to hire. In addition, I never ask a client to sign a contract while hospitalized.

Florida Motorcycle Fatalities

With Florida’s nearly-year-round beautiful weather and great ocean views, many Floridians choose motorcycles or scooters as their vehicle of choice. In fact, seven percent of all motorists in the state ride a motorcycle on a nearly daily basis.  Unfortunately, Florida leads the nation in motorcycle fatalities, with cyclists accounting for 19 percent of the state’s traffic fatalities.  If a cyclist is not killed, the injuries are far more serious than victims of car accidents. Some of the more common injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Lacerations requiring stitches leading to scarring
  • Displaced fractures requiring surgery
  • Internal injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Treating and managing these injuries is time-consuming and costly. Victims may be unable to work for weeks, months, or even years due to injuries. Yet during that time, they still have to pay for everyday living expenses such as rent or mortgage, utilities, food, and clothing—in addition to the cost of medical expenses.

If you have been injured while riding a motorcycle accident, do not hesitate to call me.  I, and my entire staff understand your devastating loss and what you are going through.  While no amount of money will fully compensate someone with permanent injuries, I promise to work hard to obtain the best possible compensation.

Damages You Can Recover

Depending on the nature and severity of your injuries, you may find that you are unable to work—or worse, unable to perform everyday activities on your own. However severe your injuries and whatever the impact they have on your life, Attorney Rojas will fight on your behalf to recover some or all of the following type of damages:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Medical and physical therapy expenses
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
