Have You Been Injured In A Motorcycle Accident?

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally recently took place in North Dakota. This shows that plenty of people are still riding their bikes with the COVID-19 pandemic in full bloom. Things are no different here in the Sunshine State. Motorcyclists can be found on highways, side streets, and off-the-road paths.

Some wear masks, some social distance, and others do not take any precautions at all. That is a topic for another time, though. This article will focus on motorcycle accidents because the events happen almost daily in Florida from Sarasota to all areas around the state. Just take a look at these headlines:

• Patch – Clearwater Motorcyclist Killed In Crash On I-275
• Pensacola News Journal – Motorcyclist Killed In Saturday Night Crash In Escambia County
• NBC 2 – One Dead After Crash Involving Motorcycle In Naples

As one can see from the titles, death is a common theme in motorcycle accidents. Bikes simply do not offer the same protection that passenger vehicles do. People can also become injured in the events. The resulting health conditions often include broken bones, fractures, burns, and road rash. With healthcare costs what they are today, injured riders can find themselves spending a lot of money to recover from their wounds, so much so that they could go broke due to out-of-pocket expenses.

Victims Can Recoup Their Losses Via The Legal System

When people get injured in motorcycle accidents that are the fault of negligent drivers, they are sometimes entitled to compensation for the damages. However, insurance companies are notorious for giving victims the runaround. In some instances, they offer individuals low-ball settlements that do not cover their expenses. On other occasions, insurers deny claims and avoid payment altogether.

Going it alone against those corporations can be stressful and overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be that way. Injured victims can put motorcycle accident attorneys in their corner to fight on their behalf. Those professionals are excellent negotiators. They often settle matters without their clients having to get in front of judges or juries. Partners can also take cases to trials if need be. They have the means and experience to take claims the distance.

Motorcycle crash lawyers build strong cases to prove that negligence happened. Their teams collect evidence such as witness statements, photos of the accident scene, surveillance camera footage, and driver histories. They use technology and specialists to recreate incidents as necessary. They fight tooth and nail with their clients' best interests in mind to recover the compensation they deserve.

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.
