Staying Safe on the Road Isn’t Easy for Motorcycle Riders in Florida
While Town ‘N’ Country, Carrollwood, and Citrus Park are great places to ride year-round, staying safe on the road isn’t easy for motorcycle riders in Florida. Unfortunately, drivers frequently make poor decisions and careless mistakes that put riders in harm’s way. Defects, maintenance issues, and other hazards can cause accidents as well, and all of these factors combine to cause thousands of motorcycle accidents statewide each year.
When these factors lead to motorcycle accidents, injured riders and families will often be entitled to financial compensation. At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, our Town ‘N’ Country motorcycle accident lawyers bring decades of experience to handling cases involving:
- Aggressive and reckless drivers
- Careless and inattentive drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Fatigued drivers
- Inexperienced drivers
- Motorcycle and vehicle defects
- Safety equipment (i.e., helmet) defects
No matter what happened, if you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident, we strongly encourage you to contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation. Our lawyers will thoroughly assess your legal rights, and they will help you make an informed decision about how to move forward.
Sadly, even motorcycle riders who do their best to protect themselves are not immune from suffering the consequences of someone else’s mistake. For example, while the following safety practices can help reduce riders’ risk of serious or fatal injury, they cannot protect riders entirely. For the greatest protection possible, riders should always:
- Ride within your limits
- Give plenty of buffer to dangerous drivers
- Maintain your motorcycle in safe operating condition
- Obey the speed limit and other traffic laws
- Practice ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time)
Do Not Make Assumptions about Your Legal Rights After a Motorcycle Accident
What if you weren’t following all of these safety practices? For example, what if you were riding above the posted speed limit? Or, what if you weren’t wearing a helmet (since helmets aren’t required for insured riders over 21 under Florida law) at the time of your crash?
Even in these types of situations, it may still be possible to recover financial compensation. This is based on two key legal principles that apply to motorcycle accidents in Florida:
1. Liability for Motorcycle Accidents is Based on Evidence of Fault
First, in motorcycle accident cases, liability is based on evidence of fault. Even if a rider makes a mistake on the road, this does not necessarily mean that the rider is liable for his or her own injuries. For example, consider a scenario in which a motorcycle rider is speeding slightly. If an investigation reveals that the rider’s speed was not a factor in the crash, then the rider is not liable under Florida law.
2. Even if You (or Your Loved One) was Partially at Fault, You Can Still Seek Partial Compensation
Second, even if a rider is partially at fault in an accident, the rider (or the rider’s family) can still seek partial compensation. This is based on Florida’s law of “pure comparative fault.” For example, let’s say a rider is speeding slightly, and evidence obtained during an investigation indicates that the rider was 10 percent at fault. In this scenario, the rider (or the rider’s family) would still be entitled to recover 90 percent of their accident-related losses.
Do Not Accept the Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer
After a motorcycle accident, it can be tempting to try to move on as quickly as possible. The insurance companies know this, and they will often try to get riders and their families to accept low-ball settlements. As a result, you should not accept an insurance company’s settlement offer unless you have consulted with an attorney.
In most cases, when an insurance company makes a quick settlement offer, there will be significantly more on the table. Under Florida law, riders and their families are entitled to just compensation for their financial and non-financial losses. This includes all current and future costs associated with the accident. Unless you present evidence of your losses to the insurance companies, you will not receive just compensation for your:
- Medical care, medical supplies, prescriptions, and therapy
- Other out-of-pocket costs (i.e., home modifications or in-home support services)
- Loss of income, benefits, and future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Post-traumatic stress
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of companionship, consortium, enjoyment of life, services, society, and support
Calculating just compensation for these losses is not easy, and you cannot expect the insurance companies to calculate your losses for you. In order to protect yourself and your family, you need to take control of your insurance claim, and this starts with putting an experienced Town ‘N’ Country motorcycle accident lawyer on your side.
Real Reviews for Our Town ‘n’ Country Area Personal Injury Law Office
“Absolutely thrilling experience working with Abrahamson & Uiterwyk… I was involved in a motorcycle accident and had some substantial injuries but I could work through them. I simply wanted a check cut to replace my motorcycle and med. bills paid from State Farm and I would have been satisfied+/-…State Farm sat on there hands with the resolution so I decided to call a lawyer to speed things up a bit. I had been through this process before and stated that ” I am not going to waste countless hours substantiating my injury with physical therapy and various other med. treatments.” …It was understood… Verdict? A&U were able to get the maximum amount rewarded. $100,000… I was in shock. Highly recommended to say the least..” -S. Paul, July 2021 via Google
