  • Managing communication with all the involved parties, including insurance companies, the at-fault driver, health care providers, and your employer
  • Tracking down all the evidence to build a strong case, such as law enforcement accident reports, medical records, witness statements, and physical evidence from the crash scene
  • Identifying every potential source of compensation, including your insurance, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM or UIM), the at-fault driver, or the manufacturer or distributor of a defective auto part that caused your crash
  • Calling on experts to support your claim, such as medical professionals, accident reconstruction experts, and long-term care planners
  • Fighting for your rights at the negotiation table and in the courtroom, and always keeping you in the loop on the progress we’re making in your claim

  • Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Florida

    Motorcycles require more skill to drive than everyday passenger cars. However, no amount of skill can protect a motorcyclist from other careless drivers on the road. Unfortunately, so many motorcycle accidents could have been completely avoided had the at-fault driver simply paid attention to the surroundings and appropriately followed the familiar advice: SHARE THE ROAD.

    Some of the common reasons for motorcycle accidents are:

    • Motorcycles are harder for drivers of cars, SUVs, and trucks to see.
    • Drivers of other vehicles don’t acknowledge the motorcyclist or obey common “rules of the road,” such as maintaining proper distances or signaling.
    • Drivers of other vehicles are speeding, distracted, reckless, or driving under the influence.
    • Motorcycles are more susceptible to road hazards and dangerous weather conditions.
    • Motorcycles can be easily side-swiped.
    • Drivers or passengers in parked cars open their doors into the paths of bikers.
    • Motorcycles are more likely to become unstable or “wobbly” at higher speeds.
    • Impacts commonly result in ejection for motorcyclists, resulting in serious injury rather than just vehicle damage.

    Although motorcycle accidents are often caused by another driver, juries can be prejudiced against motorcyclists, assuming that all those who ride are reckless. As a dedicated motorcycle accident law firm in Hollywood, Florida, we know that stereotype is untrue. In fact, most bikers are more safety conscious because they know they are more vulnerable in crashes. Our legal team understands how important it is to build a sophisticated and persuasive argument to overcome this type of bias, both during negotiations and in the courtroom.

  • Motorcycle Accident Injuries

    Although any type of auto accident can be dangerous, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable in a collision because they aren’t protected by airbags, doors, roofs, seat belts, or other safety features. Because of this lack of external protection, motorcycle accidents often result in more severe injuries than car accidents. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

    • Internal injuries
    • Fractured or broken bones
    • Torn ligaments
    • Amputations
    • Road rash
    • Emotional trauma

    These are the types of injuries that can end careers and change lives forever. If you are coping with any type of catastrophic injury after a crash, you need to speak with our qualified motorcycle accident lawyers in Hollywood, Florida, to learn about your options for pursuing full and fair compensation.

  • What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Hollywood

    It can be very difficult to get your thoughts together in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, but there are several steps you can take to protect your rights, including:

    Seek medical attention immediately, follow all your doctor’s orders, and keep all follow-up appointments.

    Call law enforcement to file an official accident report.

    If you can, take photos of the scene and your injuries.

    Get the names and contact information for the other driver, as well as any witnesses to the accident.

    Contact a skilled motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Do not speak with any insurance company representatives until after you have talked to an attorney about your case.

    No matter what happened in the accident, do not admit fault or apologize to the other driver. Limit your communication about the accident to the basic facts, and let your attorney handle the follow-up interviews and investigation.
