Motorcycle Accident Lawyers West Palm Beach

Driven to Achieve Results for Injured Clients

One unfortunate statistic indicates that Florida leads the nation in motorcycle accident deaths in many years. Although it is difficult to say whether this is because our state’s year-round temperate climate motivates more motorcyclists to take to the roadways, or because it is legal for most motorcyclists to ride without wearing a helmet under Florida law, the statistic remains a sad reminder of the dangers faced by motorcyclists every day. Motorcyclists in West Palm Beach can and should take precautions to ensure their own safety on the roadways, but when a motorcycle accident is caused by another driver’s negligence, aggressive driving or because of dangerous conditions created by another third party, you should not have to pay the price for the resulting injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions About West Palm Beach Motorcycle Accidents

FAQ: The other driver and insurance company are claiming that I was partially at fault for the accident. Can I pursue a claim for compensation?

Yes. Even if you were partially to blame, Florida law follows a pure comparative negligence system, which means that accident victims can still recover compensation if your own negligence contributed to the accident. However, your compensation award will be reduced in proportion to the degree of fault that can be assigned to your own actions.

FAQ: Can I share a lane with another motorcycle in Florida? What if another driver caused the accident but I was sharing the lane with another motorcycle.

Technically, no, you cannot share the lane with another motorcycle under Florida law, but that will not, in and of itself, eliminate your right to recover compensation if another driver’s negligence caused your accident. Evidence that you violated a traffic law can be used as evidence of your own contributory negligence, but splitting the lane is a fairly minor traffic violation in Florida. Under Florida’s pure comparative negligence rule, your compensation package may be reduced to account for that traffic violation, but we will fight to establish that splitting the lane had minimal impact on causing the accident.
