Avoid The Unfortunate Outcomes Of Motorcycle Accidents

Many Floridians buy and ride motorcycles across the Sunshine State. For that matter, a number of motorcyclists come here from out of state too, and why not? The weather is usually great, and there is plenty to see and do.

Of course, there are loads of cars and commercial vehicles on our streets too. With so many forms of transportation in one location, it is not uncommon for accidents to occur in Florida. When motorcycles are involved, the outcome varies from one crash to the next.

Sometimes, motorcyclists and their passengers are left with severe wounds that change their lives forever. Those often include injuries to the spine or brain, broken bones, lacerations, and more. However, such events can be deadly as well. Just take a look at some of these recent news stories from the area:

• Orlando Sentinel – Motorcyclist Dies In Head-On Lake County Crash
• Patch – Motorcyclist Killed In Fiery Crash On Keene Road
• Florida Today – Cape Canaveral Motorcyclist Killed In Crash On North Atlantic Ave. In Cocoa Beach
• WFLA – Motorcyclist Killed In A Crash In Clearwater; Drivers Asked To Avoid Area

Stats For Motorcycle Crashes In Florida


The FLHSMV's 2018 Annual Report is an excellent resource to determine how dangerous Florida's roadways are for motorcyclists. It indicates that 9,143 motorcycle crashes took place within the state in 2018. Those caused 7,849 motorcyclist injuries and 531 fatalities. They were also responsible for 621 motorcycle passenger injuries and 25 deaths. Curious parties who want to learn more about those statistics should check out the report. It covers stats for 2016 and 2017 as well.

You Or Your Family Might Be Entitled To Fair Compensation


If a car driver's negligence is to blame for a motorcycle/car collision, the injured party can hire an attorney to file a lawsuit against the negligent individual. Negligent acts may include driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, and distracted driving. Legal professionals can fight on behalf of their clients to recover fair compensation for their wounds.

Without legal action, victims may have to pay for their damages out of pocket. Automotive repairs and new bikes are not cheap. Nor are the expenses for doctors, treatments, and tests.

Therefore, if you are from Southwest Florida and become injured in a motorcycle crash that is someone else's fault, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We offer free case reviews because you should not have to go broke to get legal help. Our accident attorneys will fight tooth and nail to recover the compensation that you deserve.

Surviving relatives of motorcycle accident victims may choose to take this course of action too. When someone dies in that kind of event, their family members can run into all sorts of financial difficulties. For starters, many times, survivors have to deal with the loss of income caused by their loved one’s passing. Additionally, spouses, children, and other kin often become the responsible parties for the deceased's final expenses.

In other words, families have to pay for medical services rendered and the funeral. On its own, the latter does not come with a small price tag. According to the Lincoln Heritage Life Insurance Company, an average US funeral costs consumers between $7,000 and $12,000 today. Hence, if your loved one dies in a motorcycle accident where negligence was involved, it may be in your best interest to hire an accident attorney. Contact our firm to discuss your options and learn more about what we can do for you.

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.
