Top Rated Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Miramar, FL

Seasoned Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Protecting Motorcycle Accident Victims’ Rights to Fair Compensation

From nearly every perspective, South Florida may be one of the most desirable places in the United States to ride a motorcycle on a year-round basis—even in the winter months, Miramar residents are able to avoid the snow, ice and even frost that impacts almost the entire country. Despite this, Miramar motorcyclists remain just as susceptible to sustaining serious injuries in a motorcycle accident as everyone else. As every motorcycle accident victim will agree, the injuries sustained in these accidents can be particularly severe because of the lack of protection afforded by the motorcycle itself.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we are serious about keeping the Miramar roads safe and protecting motorcycle accident victims harmed because of another driver’s careless behavior. We have spent decades living and working in South Florida, and find that our passion for holding negligent parties accountable in our own communities has made our skilled legal counsel even more valuable for our clients. Call us for a no-cost consultation to explore options for recovering compensation from the party who caused your motorcycle accident today.

Our experienced lawyers can fight until you win the maximum amount of financial compensation available in your case, but we cannot take away the physical injuries that you are likely to suffer in a motorcycle accident.

Establishing Motorcycle Accident Victims’ Right to Compensatory Damages: Negligence and Comparative Negligence Under Florida Law

Most motorcycle accidents in Miramar occur because at least one driver was negligent. This theory of “negligence” is how we usually begin to establish financial liability for the injuries caused by a motorcycle accident, and requires establishing the following elements:

In many cases, the negligent driver will attempt to minimize financial liability after a motorcycle accident by accusing the injured party of contributing to the cause of the accident. Additionally, sometimes more than one driver was negligent and contributed to the accident. Contributory negligence essentially holds every party responsible to the degree that they contributed to the accident. We can still fight to recover compensation for your injuries if you contributed to the motorcycle accident, but your right to recovery may be reduced to the extent you are deemed responsible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accidents in Miramar, FL

FAQ: What should I do first after a motorcycle accident in Miramar?

Seek medical care as soon as possible—no matter what. If you are fortunate enough to walk away from the accident, you should still see a doctor immediately. This is important for two primary reasons. The first reason is obvious—you might not know that you’re injured. Internal bleeding and concussions are two examples of severe injuries often sustained in motorcycle accidents that can take time to show symptoms. The second is to preserve your right to compensation. Florida law requires that you seek medical care soon after an accident, but insurance companies and defense lawyers will also latch onto any delay in seeking treatment to argue that something else caused your injuries.

FAQ: What if a member of my family was killed in a Miramar motorcycle accident?

In Florida, close family members of someone who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident are entitled to bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation from the responsible party. We can fight to recover compensation for any medical, hospital or other expenses caused by the motorcycle accident and incurred before your loved one’s death, as well as compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship and even loss of future financial support.
