Common legal issues
There are many different legal issues that can come up after a motorcycle accident in Florida. Some of the most common legal issues and topics people contact us about after a motorcycle accident include:
Putting the blame where it belongs
One thing many people don't talk about after a motorcycle accident is that there is a public bias against motorcyclists. Some people think all motorcyclists are reckless thrill seekers who put everyone on the road at risk.
Part of our job is to educate insurance adjusters and juries about the vast majority of riders who are safe, responsible operators - and to weed out jurors who think of bikers as gang members or reckless drivers. That's our job and we take great pride in it.
Our law firm conducts a prompt, thorough investigation to prove our client was not at fault. Our accident reconstruction experts often establish that the auto or truck driver pulled out, followed too closely, switched lanes without looking or failed to yield the right of way when turning. Whatever the cause of your crash, we won't stop searching until we find the truth.
Full compensation for motorcycle crashes
We have secured settlements and verdicts for the serious and permanent injuries common in motorcycle accidents:
- Head injury and brain damage
- Paralysis and back injuries
- Broken bones (legs, arms, pelvis)
- Soft tissue injuries (knees, shoulders)
- Road rash
- Wrongful death
Our goal is to cover all the needs of our clients - surgery, rehab and other medical treatment, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and compensation for the reduced quality of life after a disabling crash. If your motorcycle accident cost you financially, you should be fairly compensated for your expenses.
We pursue all available insurance coverage and aggressively counter arguments that would reduce our client's damages (such as not wearing a helmet). Our experienced attorneys also explore contributing factors such as road defects or defects in the bike. In one case, we pursued the cycle dealership for selling illegally high "ape hanger" handlebars.

How we can help you
You might think you don't have a lot of options after your motorcycle accident. Especially if you talk to insurance companies, you might think the best you can do is accept whatever they offer you after your crash.
We know the truth. We know that you can negotiate for more money for your motorcycle accident - and we can help you do just that. We know how insurance companies think and what tactics work best with them.
And if they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court and file a lawsuit against the other driver's insurance company on your behalf. We don't play games when it comes to fighting for fair compensation for injury victims and their families.
