Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Plantation, FL

Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits in Plantation, FL

Our roads here in South Florida are shared by a multitude of cars, trucks, and motorcycles, so accidents can and do happen. However, the drivers and passengers of cars and trucks have a distinct advantage over those on motorcycles. While the driver of an enclosed car equipped with airbags is more likely to escape serious injury, the exposed driver of a motorcycle is rarely so lucky.

Our sunny warm climate encourages a greater number of motorcycle riders, but this also leads to more serious accidents. In fact, Florida has more fatal motorcycle accidents annually than any other state in the union, so it is important to not only be aware of the habits and expectations of other drivers but also understand your rights in the event of an accident.

The attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey know your rights and will guide you through your motorcycle accident claim so you can concentrate on healing. In the event of wrongful death, our team uses our decades of experience to obtain the compensation to which your family is entitled.

Dealing With Serious Motorcycle Injuries in Plantation, FL

Victims of motorcycle accidents frequently suffer devastating injuries, including brain injuries, broken bones, and injuries to the head, neck, and spine. Such injuries often need months of treatment and rehabilitation, making it difficult to know when to file a claim against those responsible.

We understand the time it takes to determine when you have reached your full recovery and whether you will be faced with a permanent disability. We work with your doctor before filing your personal injury claim to obtain a full explanation as to what compensation you will need to support future treatment and provide you the quality of life you deserve.

It is the long-term effects of serious injuries that can become problematic. When an accident renders you or a family member unable to work or unable to enjoy activities that others take for granted, the responsible party must be held accountable. Your medical expenses are only the beginning. You also may be entitled to lost earning potential as well as monetary damages for the impact your injuries have on your quality of life and that of your family.

The lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey are qualified to handle motorcycle accidents in Plantation, FL, and to deal with insurance companies that may want a quick decision from you, but can be slow paying your claim once you have filed.

Protecting Your Rights Following a Motorcycle Accident in Plantation, FL

Statistically, Florida is a dangerous state for motorcyclists, as most accidents involving motorcycles occur when the driver of a car or truck has been unable to see the motorcycle. Nevertheless, there is a tendency for police and witnesses to accuse the motorcyclist of driving recklessly. Witnesses may perceive that the motorcycle was speeding because of its small size even if it was traveling the speed limit. Preserving evidence is crucial to establishing fault and obtaining the compensation you deserve.

The experienced personal injury lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey work quickly to preserve evidence and build an accurate interpretation of the accident scene so the fault is placed where it belongs. Florida’s Pure Comparative Fault system means that if you are deemed partially at fault for the accident or your injuries, your recovery is reduced by that percentage. This can be a critical issue for an accident victim who is not insured for personal injury. Florida does not require motorcyclists to carry personal injury protection, so we understand that clearly establishing fault is crucial in getting our clients the maximum compensation, as this may be their only source of recovery.
