When a motorcycle driver is involved in an accident, the path to recovery can indeed be difficult, particularly if the collision was caused by another person’s carelessness; however, an unfair bias persists that motorcyclists are negligent and reckless – a myth frequently promulgated by the insurance industry. At the Shiner Law Group, we understand how catastrophic motorcycle accidents can be and the precautions drivers take to avoid them. We provide aggressive, strategic advocacy to secure strongest financial recovery package you deserve.

If you or your loved one has been involved in a Florida motorcycle accident, contact our experienced Melbourne motorcycle accident lawyers to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcycle accidents are caused by another motorist’s failure to observe traffic safety laws, and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 80% of collisions result in severe injury or wrongful death. The seasoned motorcycle accident attorneys at the Shiner Law Group provide a list of the most common causes associated with motorcycle accidents:

  • Aggressive or distracted driving.
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Improper passing, unsafe lane changing, or failure to signal.
  • Tailgating.
  • Inexperienced driving or slow reaction times.
  • Failure to adapt to road conditions, such as construction or inclement weather.

Understanding Florida’s Motorcycle Accident Claims Process

Florida is a no-fault state, which means that one or more parties involved in an accident can be held comparatively negligible depending on the severity of their respective breach in the legal duty of care. Unlike car accidents, however, claimants in a motorcycle accident proceeding do not need to show that a duty of care existed, such as a car making an illegal turn at an intersection.

The statute of limitations for bringing a personal injury legal cause of action against an at-fault party is four years in the state of Florida, or two years in cases of wrongful death, for a broad range of damages, including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, medical treatment and rehabilitation, periods of disability, lost income and benefits, reduced earning capacity, and a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.
