Florida leads the nation in motorcycle accident fatalities. While some blame this sobering statistic on the state’s helmet law (insured drivers over age 21 are not legally required to wear a helmet), the large number of both fatal and non-fatal accidents demonstrates that there are other factors involved. Indeed, motorcycle riders are even more susceptible to the mistakes of distracted, drunk and other negligent drivers. Lack of awareness and lack of respect for motorcycle riders’ rights is a clear issue in many accidents as well.
At the Babiarz Law Firm, PA, we help injured motorcycle riders in The Villages®, Lady Lake, Oxford, Wildwood, Ocala, Summerfield, Belleview, Leesburg; and Central Florida’s other communities seek financial compensation for their losses. Potential damages include compensation not only for outstanding medical bills, but also future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering; and other forms of financial and emotional harm. Most riders do not realize the full extent of the damage they will suffer in the wake of an accident. As a result, they settle too soon and for less than they deserve. Please do not make this mistake! Let an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on our team help maximize your financial recovery.
Motorcycle Accident Cases We Handle
Most serious motorcycle accidents involve collisions with passenger vehicles. When drivers make mistakes, even the most defensive riders can be left helpless to avoid suffering life-changing injuries. We represent riders throughout Central Florida who have been injured in accidents involving:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield
- Reckless driving
- Other forms of driver negligence
For obvious reasons, accidents involving commercial trucks tend to have the greatest consequences for motorcycle riders. A variety of factors can lead to truck accidents, and at the Babiarz Law Firm, PA, our motorcycle accident lawyers have experience at uncovering all potential sources of compensation for our clients’ losses.
Motorcycle defects cause an alarming number of accidents. When you buy a motorcycle, you expect it to be ready for the rigors of daily riding. But, defects -- including faulty suspensions, swing arms, brakes, transmission systems and tires -- can cause accidents when you least expect them. If a motorcycle defect played a role in your accident, you may have a claim against your bike’s manufacturer.
What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Central Florida
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, there are several steps you can take to improve your chances of securing just compensation. Motorcycle accident victims in Central Florida should:
- Collect vehicle and contact information from all drivers and witnesses at the scene of the accident (assuming you are physically able to do so. If not have someone do it.)
- Take photos at the scene (again, assuming you are able. If not have someone do it.)
- Call 911 and seek prompt medical attention
- Avoid discussing the accident with the insurance companies
- Hire an experienced legal team to advise you and deal with the insurance companies on your behalf
