Advocates For Injured Bikers’ Rights In South Florida
Motorcycle riders have the same rights on the road as everybody else. For example, motorists must yield to oncoming motorcycles first before making a left turn, or make sure they are clear of riders next to them before changing lanes. As the victim of a motorcycle wreck, you may be unable to work, or you may have to take a lower-paying job. You may never ride again or enjoy your hobbies. You might have to rely on your spouse, children or health care professionals for help with bathing, eating and other everyday tasks.
To move forward from a motorcycle crash, you need a local attorney with a high level of experience who will empower you throughout the process of obtaining fair compensation. The South Florida Trial Lawyers, A Private Law Firm, has represented motor vehicle plaintiffs in the area for more than 20 years. As your firm, we will give your case our complete attention. We will not stop working with you until we have delivered a positive result, in or out of court.
Bad Drivers Cause Motorcycle Collisions
Unfortunately, many drivers either fail to pay attention to motorcycles near them or deliberately violate riders’ space and safety. Whether they do so deliberately or carelessly, drivers who do not respect motorcycles’ right of way cause tremendous harm. Riders usually get the worst of these collisions.
Here are a few examples of crashes caused by a car or truck driver:
- A motorist tries to turn left as an oncoming motorcycle is passing through the intersection
- A driver swerves into a rider’s path while changing lanes without having checked their side mirror first
- A car follows a motorcycle too closely and rear-ends the rider when traffic slows down
- Focused on their phone and not the road, a distracted driver goes through a red light and hits a biker
Disabling injuries to the head, spine and limbs are common. We are prepared to hold the negligent driver who hit you accountable for their actions. Usually, this means dealing with their auto insurance company. If the insurer tries to drag out your case, claim your injuries were preexisting, or otherwise disrespect your right to recovery, we will put a stop to it. We are strong litigators who will craft our strategy to best fit your particular needs.
Do you have questions after a crash? We can answer them.
