Although motorcycles are prevalent in Fort Lauderdale, many drivers simply do not understand or see these smaller vehicles. Unfortunately, this makes the roads very dangerous for motorcyclists, with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reporting that motorcyclists are 30 times as likely as other motorists to be killed in a vehicle collision and five times as likely to be injured. Motorcycle riders should not be left to cope with injuries alone, and those who lose loved ones should not be forced to bear the emotional and financial burden of a wrongful death. Instead, Florida law requires drivers who cause motorcycle crashes to compensate victims. The victims, however, need to be the ones who pursue the claim for monetary damages. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our experienced Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident attorneys have helped hundreds of clients recover monetary compensation after a collision. We are here and ready to help if you or a loved one has been hurt.
Motorcycle accidents can occur for many reasons. Some of the top causes include:
In all of these situations, the driver has either broken a safety rule or behaved in an unreasonably careless way that put the motorcycle rider at risk of a crash. If it is determined that the driver was negligent and that this negligence was the direct cause of the motorcycle accident, then the motorist is liable for losses and damage that result.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
My experience with Steinger, Greene & Feiner was a very positive experience. They addressed my needs right away. I didn’t expect to get a lawyer as quickly as I did. I got a phone call the next day and it was Steve Sheinfeld. He was very professional and courteous. I signed up because I had confidence right away… Steve was willing to walk through this journey with me, where I could walk away feeling a lot better.
