Motorcycle accidents can have life-altering consequences, often resulting in physical injuries and emotional trauma for victims.

How to Recover Monetary Compensation for PTSD After a Florida Motorcycle Accident
Florida is a no-fault insurance state, meaning most accident victims must first pursue monetary compensation through their insurance company. However, if the victim has PTSD or another long-term disability or permanent injury, they may have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the party responsible for their damages.
It is essential to know that monetary compensation is not automatically granted, and your attorney must provide evidence establishing your diagnosis and how your injuries affect your daily life. Your medical records, witness testimonies, and a journal detailing your symptoms can help you prove your losses and recover the monetary compensation you deserve. An experienced attorney can help you collect and preserve essential evidence to achieve a favorable outcome for your case. Additionally, your attorney can help you pursue the following damages:
- Current and future medical expenses;
- Lost wages and earning potential;
- Significant disfigurement or disability;
- Emotional trauma;
- Loss of enjoyment in life;
- Pain and suffering.
Frank P. Marsalisi is committed to considering the full scope of your current and future needs to ensure you are compensated fairly for your losses.
