What You Need to Know After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycles are probably the most exciting thing for people to ride on the road. To some people, nothing beats the thrill of going down the road 60 mph with the wind throwing their necks back.

Beating every other car on the road and able to weave through traffic, it is almost a cheat code to have a motorcycle.

But having a motorcycle is not the safest choice. Yes you might be able to basically cheat through traffic, but it is extremely dangerous. Being such a small motor vehicle, a motorcycle is subject to all the elements. Just a small hit from another car can lead to severe injuries, possibly even death. 

Florida had about 10,000 motorcycle accidents. From that 10,000 about 600 were deaths that included cyclists and passengers, while another 600 were just strictly cyclist deaths.

The other 9,000 accidents were just injuries. The extent of injuries were unknown. So as you can see, Florida has quite high numbers when it comes to motorcycle accidents.

Main Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

There are lots of reasons as to why motorcycle accidents happen. Our personal injury lawyers have come across dozens of different cases that are motorcycle accidents. However, the most important factor in all our cases was negligence. Our lawyers can file a claim when the accident was caused by negligent actions such as:

  • Drunk driving. This is one of the biggest reasons as to why motorcycle accidents happen. A drunk driver hits a motorcyclist and sends them flying. Maybe the drunk driver is too drunk and doesn’t see the motorcycle that is approaching. There are lots of scenarios, but the drunk driver did not do their part to avoid the accident, and thus this falls under negligence.
  • Distracted driving. Texting and driving. Calling and driving. Looking away and driving. Dozing off and driving. There are so many ways to describe distracted driving. Obviously, motorcycles are smaller than almost all vehicles on the road, but that doesn’t mean that they are to be ignored. All drivers should be able to see motorcycles or careful enough to see them. This is where distracted driving takes your attention. You are so distracted that they don’t even see where you are, and then a split second later, you get hit. 
  • Road Rage. Obviously, there are people that dislike motorcycles. There are people that have bad days and they take it out on the road. But that doesn’t mean that they are justified in hitting you and causing injuries to you. 
  • Defective motorcycle parts. Motorcycles are just like cars. They have moving parts that can break just like regular car parts. Common things like handles, engine, frame, brakes, and tires can all break. Although these could be your fault, if it hasn’t been a long time since you bought the motorcycle, then it could be manufacturing negligence and you could be entitled to compensation.
  • Traffic hazards. Things like potholes, uneven roads, cracks in the roads, these are all things that need to be taken care of by the government. By neglecting to take care of these things, they are actually putting the lives of many cyclists in danger. If you think or know that this was the cause of your accident, then call us. We can help you. 

How to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents are just unavoidable. Even if you want to avoid it, if the other driver is distracted or anything to take their attention from the road, then they will crash into you. 

However, you CAN take safety precautions such as these:

  1. Wear safety gear. Things like helmets and safety padding. If you get in a motorcycle accident, you will at least be safer than just wearing jeans and a shirt. 
  2. Drive with attention. Driving carelessly and zooming down the road can make things more dangerous than just riding your motorcycle like a regular person. Getting thrown off your bike going 30 is much less deadly than getting thrown off your bike at 60.

What a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do For You

Our personal injury lawyers can guide you from the first step to the last in winning your case. Although it may seem as easy as just filing suit, that is actually not how most cases go. There are complications down the road and lots of things that can go wrong. Our personal injury lawyers take care of you from the start:

  1. Consultation and research. We take the case seriously from the start and make sure to gather evidence and details that will help your case. From medical bills, insurance, policy, and other documents that would provide evidence and details for us to understand the case better.
  2. Demand for payment. Once you hire a personal injury lawyer from Accident Lawyers MIA, the first thing we will do is submit a letter of representation to all the parties that will be involved in the case. This is to make sure that everyone is notified that we will be pursuing a claim, but also following the tenets of good faith. This also means that if they cannot meet your demands in accordance to your injury, then we will be filing suit.
  3. Pretrial litigation. Basically, once they cannot meet our demands, we will take it to court. Probably one of the well known local courts such as Broward or the County Court. Here, we will do our best to represent your demands.

Accident Lawyers MIA are always going to do our best to represent everything you deserve. Our focus is not only on making you as much money as possible but also making sure that you are medically cleared and also stress-free throughout the entire process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still open questions?

Ideally, you will want to hire a personal injury lawyer as soon as you get injured. If you are injured and your body is in pain, why wait and live with the pain? That makes no sense. You want to get rid of the pain as soon as possible. If you have more questions contact us

That depends on how badly you were injured. People joke around about “I wish I got hit by a car” or “If I slip and fall here, I’m gonna make a fortune”. Although that is possible, it is not always possible. They are jokes for a reason. You will make as much as you are owed. If it is just a scratch, then you will not be compensated much. If you had to have major surgery and are going through rehab, then you will make MUCH more than just a simple scratch or small bump.

As a personal injury lawyer in Miami, what I do is make sure that you make your money back (maybe even more) from whatever damages you sustained. If someone else caused your injuries, then you have to contact us and consult with our team. We will make sure that you are taken care of. My job is to see if your current situation is actually someone else’s fault and if you can get your money back for the treatment you went or are going through.

We will represent all kinds of cases, from car accidents and work accidents, to truck accidents and uber/lyft accidents.
