Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Miramar

Seasoned Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Protecting Motorcycle Accident Victims’ Future and Safety in Miramar, FL

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.

Avoiding Injury and Fatalities Caused by Motorcycle Accidents in Miramar, Florida

Most motorcyclists exercise great caution when driving because they understand what they have at stake if they are involved in any type of motorcycle accident. In our area particularly, we recommend that anyone who drives a motorcycle take the following safety precautions:

  • Be especially cautious and vigilant when riding in inclement weather, remembering that other drivers may not be able to see your motorcycle in bad weather in Miramar,
  • Make sure you have received proper training before driving a motorcycle in Miramar,
  • Don’t bob and weave through traffic in Miramar,
  • Pick a lane and stay in it in Miramar,
  • Don’t ride in the blind spots of other vehicles, refrain from tailgating and don’t ride on the shoulder of the road in Miramar,
  • Don’t ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs in Miramar,
  • Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and other protective gear, whether you are required to or not in Miramar.

Remember that your safety is important and that these steps can help minimize the injuries you do suffer in a motorcycle accident or even help prevent a motorcycle accident from occurring in the first place. 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:

  • Duty. In Florida, all drivers owe a duty to drive safely to all other duties on the roads. This is an implicit duty that every driver agrees to by the simple act of driving a motor vehicle.
  • Breach of duty. This element is where we examine what actually happened in the accident—for example, a breach of a driver’s duty of care occurs when someone drives while intoxicated, violates traffic laws or drives while texting or distracted.
  • Causation. To recover compensation for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, the breach of the negligent driver’s duty must have caused those injuries.
  • Damages. Here, we look to your injuries and the potential cost of those injuries, and work to establish a quantifiable account of your medical expenses, future needs, lost earnings and earning potential, pain and suffering and more.

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.
