Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcycle accidents can happen for many reasons.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes include:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Following too closely
  • Opening a car door into traffic
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Defective motorcycle parts

Florida's Motorcycle Helmet Laws

In Florida, the law requires motorcycle riders and passengers under the age of 21 to wear helmets. If you were not wearing a helmet at the time of your crash, you may be wondering what that means for your case.

Even if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of a motorcycle accident, you may still be able to recover compensation for your injuries. The insurance company may argue that your injuries would not have been as severe had you been wearing a helmet, but our lawyers can help you navigate this issue.

Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims

If you were injured in a motorcycle collision, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses: The cost of medical treatment will be a key factor in determining the value of a settlement. This includes the cost of future medical treatment.
  • Lost wages: You can recover compensation for wages lost while you were recovering from your injuries. This includes future lost wages if you are permanently disabled and unable to return to work.
  • Property damage: This includes the cost to repair or replace your motorcycle.
  • Pain and suffering: This includes both physical and emotional pain and suffering.
  • Disfigurement or disability: If you were disfigured or suffered a permanent disability, you may be able to recover compensation for this.

The insurance company is not on your side. They are looking out for their best interests, which means they will try to get you to settle for as little as possible. This is why it is important to hire a motorcycle accident attorney in Sarasota.

Our legal team at Burnetti, P.A. can review any settlement offers you receive and help you determine if it is fair. Remember, once you accept a settlement offer, you can no longer seek compensation for your injuries.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents are often life-changing events. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident and are physically able, the following are the steps you should take to protect your rights:

  • Call 911: It is important to have a police report so that you have proof of the accident.
  • Get medical attention: Even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt, it is important to see a doctor. Some injuries have delayed symptoms.
  • Document the scene: Take pictures of your injuries, damage to your bike, and the scene of the accident.
  • Get witness information: If anyone saw the accident, get their names and contact information.
  • Don’t talk to the insurance company: The insurance company will try to get you to say something that they can use against you. You should refer them to your attorney.
  • Get an attorney: A Sarasota motorcycle accident lawyer can help you navigate the complexities of your case and help you fight for the compensation you need.

How Burnetti, P.A. Can Help
