Orlando Motorcycle Accident Attorney

shutterstock_185512175The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that motorcycle riders are 30 times more likely to die in car accidents and five times more likely to be hurt in car accidents as compared with motorists in other vehicles. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often cause serious harm to motorcyclists and passengers because the bikes provide limited protection from the road.

When a motorcycle accident happens that is the fault of another motorist, riders who are injured can pursue a claim for compensation. An Orlando motorcycle accident attorney at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene can help you pursue money for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering damages, emotional distress damages or the wrongful death of your loved one in a motorcycle crash.

Your Rights in a Motorcycle Accident Claim

A motorcycle rider or passenger who suffers serious injuries or those whose loved ones are killed may have a personal injury claim against any driver who was negligent or who violated the rules of the road in a way that led to the crash. This may include a driver who:

  • Failed to yield the right-of-way to a motorcyclist

  • Was speeding and was unable to stop before hitting a motorcycle rider

  • Changed lanes or made a turn without seeing the motorcyclist

  • Was drunk, drowsy, distracted or otherwise unable to see the motorcyclist

  • Misjudged the speed of the motorcycle rider and caused a crash to occur

In any situation, it is important to determine if the driver did something wrong or was unreasonably careless in a way that led to the crash. If so, then you can pursue a claim against the driver.

Motorcycle accidents may also be caused by problems with the roads or problems with the bike itself. If either of these situations leads to a crash, victims can take action against the motorbike manufacturer or against those in charge of road design and maintenance.

A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Orlando Can Help

For injured victims of motorcycle crashes, claims can be resolved through an out-of-court settlement or through a lawsuit.

An out-of-court settlement involves negotiating with the auto insurance company of the driver who caused the crash. The goal is to get the insurer to cover losses in full so you do not have to go to court. Our Orlando motorcycle accident lawyers can help you do this by using negotiation skills and legal experience with accident cases to get the insurer to make a reasonable offer.

If no settlement can be reached, you can go to court and prove your claim by showing that the driver’s negligence was the direct cause of your crash. You’ll need to convince a judge or jury that the driver should be held responsible for your losses and the judge or jury will determine liability and the extent of compensation you are entitled to receive.
