Motorcycle Accidents Are Different - Only Hire An Experience Attorney

Lots of Floridians own motorcycles and enjoy riding them around from place to place. Often, the bike gives the driver a sense of freedom. They don't feel claustrophobic as they are not cooped up in the small cab of a car, truck, or SUV. Plus, there is just something about the wind whipping all around their body. It feels nice on the skin, in the hair, and everywhere else. Not to mention, the rumbling of the engine gets the blood flowing.

Being a motorcyclist is not always as great as it is made out to be, though. Why? Well, because sharing the roads can get a bit dangerous. According to Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 9,707 motorcycle crashes in 2017. That number dropped some from 10,331 the year before. But, still, that is a ton of wrecks. In those 2017 accidents, 7,725 people sustained injuries. Meanwhile, there were also 515 fatalities.

Why Do So Many Injuries And Deaths Occur?


Motorcyclists simply do not have the same protection that passenger vehicle occupants have. Sure, they can purchase helmets, padded clothing, and other accessories that offer minimal protection, but there is not a roof, doors, airbags, or anything else of that nature on their bikes. Many times, when a collision occurs, the rider is thrown through the air. He or she lands hard on dirt, concrete, or even the hood of the car. Sometimes, motorcyclists crash through a passenger vehicle's window as well. Each incident is unique and different, but some common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include but are not limited to…

• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Loss Of Limbs
• Paralysis
• Broken Bones
• Burns, Lacerations, And Road Rash

Recovering From One Or More Of These Ailments Can Be Costly


There is nothing cheap about hospital stays, doctor visits, physical therapy, or medications in the United States today. The bills can pile up in a hurry and leave the victim unsure of how he or she is going to pay for them. If another party's negligence or recklessness caused the incident and damages, the person might be entitled to fair compensation. Unfortunately, getting that payday can be easier said than done when going it alone.

Insurance companies typically have one primary goal in mind. They want to pay out the smallest amount of compensation possible, even if their customer is 100-percent to blame. In turn, representatives regularly off small settlement figures from the get-go. They hope that the person will accept it, which allows the agency to make out like a bandit. The organizations add fine print to contracts that attempt to get the victim to sign his or her rights to compensation away. Most of the time, the documents do not hold up in court. Still, though, signing on the dotted line can mess things up and slow the negotiation down.

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.
