Hollywood Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Motorcycle accidents are a traumatic event that few people emerge from without injury. According to the National Traffic Safety Administration, over 80,000 accidents involving motorcycles occur each year. Of those 80,000 accidents, drivers were 37 times more likely to sustain life-threatening injuries compared to passengers of standard vehicles.

Motorcycle accident victims in Florida can be left feeling traumatized and unaware of how to appropriately respond without jeopardizing their legal rights. The attorneys at the Shiner Law Group provide a basic guide for motorcycle accident victims to follow in an emergency situation:

  • Call emergency services and seek medical attention. While injury victims may not feel the immediate effects of the accident, conditions may worsen as time passes, which makes it more difficult for a motorcycle accident attorney to help you recover financial compensation.
  • Gather all relevant information, such as picture or film evidence, contact, and insurance information, as well as weather and road conditions.
  • Do not admit fault or give statements that could be interpreted as admitting fault. Consult with legal counsel first.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a number of factors, but the most common include a motorist’s failure to yield, road construction, and inclement weather. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact an experienced Hollywood motorcycle accident attorney to discuss your legal options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Understanding Florida’s Motorcycle Laws

Unlike most car accidents, a motorcycle accident victim does not need to prove the defendant owed a reasonable duty of care or that a deviation from that care existed; however, a claimant must show, beyond a reasonable doubt, that any injury sustained was directly related to the at-fault party’s negligible activity.

As motorcycles inherently provide less protection than standard vehicles, riders and passengers are exposed to heightened risks of personal injury, including, but not limited to, broken bones, lacerations, disfigurement, loss of limbs, scarring, internal bleeding, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Motorcycle drivers in Florida are required by law to carry insurance coverage. Failure to do so may result in license’s suspension (among other penalties). It is important to note that Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits do not cover motorcycle drivers or their passengers.

Furthermore, Florida does not require motorcyclists and their passengers over the age of 21 to wear a helmet. While riders forgoing a helmet may be operating within the confines of the law, an at-fault party’s insurance company may argue that a motorcycle accident victim was comparatively negligible for the injuries sustained. Florida is a comparative negligence state: a percentage of fault can be attributed to both drivers-the at-fault party and the victim-depending on their breach of the duty of care.
