Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
The Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Madalon Law understand the ins and outs of Florida Motorcycle Accident Cases. Even though a motorcycle accident does not happen as often as car accidents, the injuries a motorcycle accident victim suffers are usually much more severe or even fatal.
There is no doubt that the State of Florida offers some of the best sceneries and stretches of road for motorcyclist. From areas in South Florida like Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Dade County, South Beach and the Florida Keys, to popular Northern Florida Biker stops like Tampa, Clearwater, Orlando and Daytona. There are plenty of reasons why riding is popular in Florida.
Unfortunately, the State of Florida also has a staggering amount of motorcycle accidents and fatalities. This is a local problem to Florida residents since over 90% of motorcyclists who are fatally injured are Florida residents, not out of town bikers on road trips. We have to go as far back as 2002 to find the last year that there were less than 250 motorcycle deaths in the state of Florida.
Whether you are the sport bike (crotch rocket) type or enjoy riding a Harley, chopper, low rider or cruiser the damage and injuries suffered during a motorcycle accident are usually severe. When a motorcycle collides with a car, it is often fatal. Even though helmet and other safety gear may help reduce the damage, injuries suffered in these types of accidents usually change the way a person lives the rest of their life.
Motorcycle accidents are often overwhelming for the victim and their family – whether the results are fractures, road rash, scarring or a fatality. Medical bills can become staggering and the injuries can often result in disabilities preventing employment and causing severe financial burdens for the family. Insurance companies or others will attempt to contact you immediately after an accident to settle your case for much less than what you may be entitled to or even need. It is essential to have a firm that will advise you and protect your interests and your rights every step of the way.
A court can award financial compensation for Medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and reduced earning capacity. In fatal accidents, the victim’s family could be entitled to file a “wrongful death” action to recover compensation for the loss of their loved one.
