Due to the exhilaration of cruising the open road as the wind hits your face and the freedom experienced on a motorcycle, these vehicles have increased in popularity in recent years. While there are many attractions and benefits to driving a motorcycle, they remain very dangerous vehicles. The lack of protection provided by motorcycles means that injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic in nature.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. The Orlando motorcycle accident attorneys at Best Law Firm Florida P.A. have been fighting for the rights of motorcycle accident victims for more than 25 years, and we have the skills to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers failing to yield the right of way. In some cases, this will lead to collisions between the two vehicles, and the majority of car accidents involving motorcycles result in vastly more serious injuries for the motorcycle driver.
However, there does not need to be a collision for the driver of another vehicle to be at fault. Many motorcycle accidents involve situations where the motorcyclist must swerve to avoid another vehicle that cut it off, causing a serious crash.
Other causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Mechanical defects
- Poorly maintained roads
- Adverse weather conditions
- Drunk drivers
A Complex Area of Law
Motorcycle accident claims are highly complex, and require the assistance of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to ensure your rights are fully protected. In cases where there was no actual collision with another vehicle, your lawyer will need to work with accident reconstruction specialists who can demonstrate that your accident was in fact caused by the negligence of the other driver.
Each state also has enacted its own laws governing the rules of the road for motorcycles, and it is important to work with a lawyer who is familiar with the motorcycle accident laws that apply to your state.
