Continue reading and reach out to our Broward County personal injury attorneys to learn more about motorcycle accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do motorcycle accidents most frequently occur?
As you may know, motorcycle accidents can occur for a multitude of reasons. In most cases, they are the result of driver negligence. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents typically leave motorcyclists with very severe injuries, many of which can change their lives forever. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents that our firm sees are as follows:
- Tailing bikers too closely
- Failing to check blind spots before merging or changing lanes
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Texting while driving
- Failing to look before opening car doors
How do I know if I am eligible for financial compensation after an accident?
If you were hurt as a motorcyclist in an accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you recover from your injuries. However, to receive that compensation, you must prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This is not always easy, which is why you should never proceed without the assistance of a competent Broward County personal injury attorney on your side. Our firm can work to uncover a wide array of evidence, including pictures of the accident, videos of the accident, witness statements, medical documents, and more.
What damages can I recover in a personal injury claim?
As long as you can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and other financial damages you’ve incurred because of your accident. You may also receive compensation to help you cope with certain non-economic damages, such as the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, scarring/disfigurement, and more. Our firm is prepared to fight for you today–all you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
