A Scenario That Could Lead To You Wishing You Hadn't Taken Your Motorcycle Out For A Spin

Driving at night can turn into a nightmare for anyone, but perhaps, even more so for motorcyclists. These two-wheel vehicles are much smaller than their car, truck, or SUV counterparts. Although they have lights just like other autos, they can be harder to see. So, disaster could strike in the blink of an eye. Just imagine for a moment if you will, it is 9 pm when a buddy calls and wants to go hang out. Of course, you are the life of the party, so you hop on your bike to get there in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

Before you know it, you are traveling down I-75, obeying the speed limit when out of the corner of your eye you see a Corvette speeding, swerving, and being reckless. You slow down to steer clear of the potential danger. However, all of a sudden, the car spins out of control, hits your bike, and sends you flying through the air. Luckily, this is only a scenario, which means nobody really got hurt, but it just goes to show the kinds of threats that are on the roadways.

Motorcycle Accidents Are Cruel And Unforgiving


Being involved in a motorcycle crash with a car, truck, or SUV can be catastrophic. After all, there is only so much that a helmet, padded jacket, chaps, and boots can do. The two-wheel vehicles don't have seat belts or airbags to protect the operator. Thus, as in the scenario above, he or she, along with a passenger if one is present, usually get sent flying into the air. As if the initial impact with the auto wasn't enough, then, persons land hard on the concrete or asphalt too. Sometimes, they even land on top of the car that hit them, or they get sent through its windshield. Injuries that often follow include but are not limited to...


• Internal Organ Damage
• Broken Bones And Fractures
• Road Rash
• Loss Of Limbs
• Traumatic Brain Injuries

However, there is also the possibility of death when motorcycles and other vehicles collide. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety/Highway Loss Data Institute reports that 5,172 motorcyclists lost their lives across the

United States in 2017 alone. Florida accounted for 515 of those fatalities. So, whether you are hitting the open road on your bike during the day or at night, wear the protective gear, watch your back, and stay safe out there.

You Or Your Family May Be Entitled To Fair Compensation


If a person sustains injuries because of another driver's negligence or recklessness, they can seek compensation for their damages. Additionally, if wrongful death occurs, family members may be able to do the same. Either way, our attorneys are ready to assist you in your time of need. Together, these lawyers have over 150-years of combined experience. In other words, they know the complex Florida legal system inside and out. They have more than 10,000 successful cases under their belts.

All of our clients get the personal attention that they deserve. The team members will come to your home or the hospital to work with you and are more than happy to do so. Each claim is unique and different, so compensation amounts will vary on a case by case basis. Some of the results speak for themselves though. Six million dollars was awarded to one motorcycle accident victim that obtained a serious brain injury. Meanwhile, on another occasion, where a bus cut off a motorcyclist, the person received $1.1 million. So, give us a call for a free case review to find out where your claim stands.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
