Melbourne Florida Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Accidents Involving Motorcycle Riders in Florida
Numerous accidents occur between motorcycles and other motor vehicles on Florida highways and streets every day. While the structure of the vehicle protects drivers of cars or trucks, motorcycle riders are extremely vulnerable, even with protective gear. As a result, motorcyclists can suffer life altering injuries – such as a traumatic brain injury – while the other driver remains unharmed.
If you or a loved one has been impacted by a severe or fatal motorcycle accident, contact a Melbourne Florida motorcycle accident lawyer to learn about your options and your rights. We may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injuries, medical expenses and lost income.
Get Answers Before Signing Anything
Issues of right-of-way and other matters that might determine responsibility for the accident are increasingly complicated. It is important to determine who was liable before accepting any insurance company offer. Our Melbourne, Florida accident reconstructionists and investigators may uncover details about the accident that may prove negligence on someone else’s part. For example, was the driver of the other vehicle driving recklessly by:
- Turning in front of a motorcycle without signaling
- Turning in front of a motorcycle without giving room to decelerate or stop
- Following to closely
- Changing lanes without seeing the motorcycle (causing the motorcycle to swerve off the road)
This type of reckless and inattentive driving can be life-threatening for the motorcyclist who is hit or forced into the gravel or a ditch. Head injuries, road burns and spinal cord damage are common results of an encounter between motorcycle riders and a motor vehicle. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to serious skin abrasions, as they may have to lay a bike down in an effort to avoid a crash with a car. Sadly, too many motorcycle crashes end in fatality.
