Jupiter Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


At Shiner Law Group, we have a skilled motorcycle accident law practice, handling cases in and around Jupiter and throughout the State of Florida. As a popular spot for recreation and tourism, Jupiter does present risks for motorcycle riders.

Motorcycle crash fatalities rose by 10 percent nationwide in 2015, with crashes claiming the lives of nearly 5,000 riders. Alarmingly, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to suffer fatal collision injuries than occupants of a passenger car. Though helmet-wearing statistics have improved over time increasing rider protection, motorcyclists are still uniquely exposed to greater injury. The skilled attorneys at Shiner Law Group understand the challenges of a motorcycle injury case, and our award-winning firm zealously advocates for riders and their families.

Jupiter Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Jupiter, Florida

In our experience, motorcycle crashes are frequently avoidable. Too often, automobile drivers are not sharing the road or are not looking out for motorcyclists, and they end up causing collisions with riders. Some of the most common causes of Jupiter motorcycle crashes we see are:

  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Unsafe passing
  • Distracted driving (texting, phone calls, etc.)
  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless driving during inclement weather

Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Florida

As seasoned Florida and Jupiter motorcycle injury lawyers, we pursue many types of motorcycle accident cases. While no two are the same, we typically handle the following kinds of motorcycle accidents:

  • Skidding on road debris
  • Left-turn accidents
  • Car door opening
  • Cars changing lanes into motorcyclists
  • Rear-end collision

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries Sustained

When a motorcyclist and a passenger car are involved in an accident, the motorcycle rider unfortunately has a greater risk of being injured and of suffering severe or fatal injuries. Because motorcycles have only two wheels, riders have less stability than passenger cars and are less likely to recover from a loss of control. We have experience with motorcycle cases involving the following injuries:

  • Head and/or neck injuries
  • Joint dislocation
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
  • Brain injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Death

Unlike car accident victims, motorcyclists often begin their injury cases with biases already attached. The long-time negative public perception of motorcyclists as dare devils or outlaws puts riders at an immediate disadvantage, especially if the accident report was prepared primarily with statements from a non-injured car driver. Shiner Law Group’s attorneys are aware of these misconceptions and work to dispel them both in the courtroom and in the Jupiter community.

Insurance companies bring additional obstacles in motorcycle accident cases, as they attempt to push fault onto the motorcycle rider and create unnecessary delays in the litigation. The insurance companies know that any settlement or trial award you might receive will be reduced if you were at all all responsible the crash. This is because Florida follows what is called a “pure comparative fault” rule. The rule means if a jury or judge finds you were partially responsible for the crash’s occurrence, a percentage of your total award will be reduced to account for your own fault. Our lawyers see these strategies coming and keep the case focused and pushing forward because we know our clients need a fast resolution. We conduct our own thorough investigations of the accident to make sure the jury understands exactly what happened and hears your story.

Motorcycle cases can be very complex, which means you need the best legal representation.
