Serving Florida Motorcycle Accident Victims

Motorcycles are both fun and practical, and many people enjoy using motorbikes for commuting or simply for the pleasure of the ride. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle can also be dangerous, and one of the biggest risks to motorcyclists is other drivers on the road who do not know how to safely share road space. When a motorist breaks a safety rule or makes a careless or dangerous decision near a motorcycle, the driver could cause a serious accident or even a fatal crash. If the driver hurts a motorcyclist or a motorcycle passenger because of careless or wrongful actions, that driver must be held accountable and made to compensate the motorcycle accident victim.

If you or a loved one was hurt in a motorcycle crash, you need to assert your legal rights and take action to make the driver live up to his or her responsibility and cover your losses. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help accident victims pursue a claim against the driver for monetary damages.

MAKING A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CLAIM

Motorcycle riders have a legal right to obtain compensation in any situation where a driver was negligent in a way that led to a motorcycle crash. A motorcyclist can prove that a driver was negligent by showing either:

  • That the driver broke a safety rule of the road, such as by exceeding the speed limit or running a red light OR
  • That the driver was unreasonably careless in operating the vehicle, falling below the level of care that a hypothetical reasonable driver would have exhibited in the same situation.

The motorcycle rider will also need to show that the motorist’s negligence was a direct cause of an accident that led to injuries. The motorcycle rider has to show all of these things by a preponderance of the evidence in order to convince a jury to hold the driver responsible in a personal injury claim. With Florida being #1 in motorcycle accidents, a motorcycle accident lawyer can help the injured rider gather the necessary evidence to prove all elements of a case. Of course, not every motorcycle accident claim gets to court. Many settle before a trial begins, with the insurance company of the driver who caused the crash agreeing to pay to resolve the case out of court. If you are negotiating a settlement, the experienced attorneys at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can work to get you the largest amount of money possible by using our negotiating skills and our knowledge of motorcycle accident cases.
