For many victims of motorcycle accidents, their first question is whether they can actually take legal action to recover compensation. Our attorneys will evaluate your case and help you determine if you have a claim for damages. You should be able to make a claim for compensation if you can prove that someone else was to blame for causing a crash. Usually, this is another driver, but others, including the bike manufacturer or agency responsible for the roads, could also be held liable.
Because motorcycle accidents can cause such serious injury, you should not hesitate to contact a lawyer if you believe you may have a case. Call Steinger, Iscoe & Greene today to schedule your free consultation and to get answers to questions including:
You can make a motorcycle accident claim if you can prove another driver’s negligence was the direct cause of your crash. To determine if a driver was negligent, the behavior is compared to what a reasonable motorist would have done under the same circumstances. You can also create a presumption of negligence by showing the driver broke the rules of the road, like speed limit laws.
If the roads were poorly designed or maintained and the failure to properly care for the roads was the direct cause of injury, you can also make a claim, but this time against the agency responsible for the roads. These cases can be more complicated because of limited legal protections that government agencies have, but your attorney can still help.
Finally, if there was a defect in the motorcycle that was the cause of your accident or injuries, you can make a legal claim against the manufacturer of the motorcycle or its failed parts.
Florida law says you are to be “made whole” after someone else harms you. This means you can be compensated for:
The more serious your injuries, the larger your losses and the more compensation you need. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die in collisions and five times more likely to be hurt. Common injuries like spinal cord or brain damage can be permanent.
At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we have the experience necessary to help seriously injured clients and family members of those killed in collisions. We will help you file a claim with the courts or negotiate a settlement with the insurer representing the negligent party. Our goal is to make the process of recovering compensation easy for you and get you the money you need to pay for all losses and costs caused by the accident.
