Lakeland Motorcycle Accidents

There’s no denying the fun of getting on your motorcycle and cruising down Lakeland’s scenic roads. But there is also an objective danger to it — the openness and vulnerability of a motorcycle ride is very different from that of a car ride. That’s why even though motorcycle accidents aren’t as common as car accidents, they’re often more painful, and more deadly.

After a motorcycle accident, facing insurance companies and attorneys on your own can be difficult and stressful, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. In order to recover the financial compensation you are entitled to, you may need to hire an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to advocate on your behalf. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you may have legal options to recover compensation.

At our Morgan & Morgan office in Lakeland the motorcycle accident attorneys are experienced, and have won the people of Polk County millions of dollars in compensation for their motorcycle injuries. Our motorcycle attorneys may be able to help you as well. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case to find out more.

  • Motorcycle Accident Causes

    In 2015, Florida motorcycle fatalities increased by nearly 29 percent from the year before, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, It’s an alarming number, especially considering the seriousness of motorcycle injuries. It is an unfortunate truth that traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries can occur in a motorcycle accident, even when a rider is wearing all proper safety equipment. Even seemingly minor accidents can cause these injuries, which may not manifest immediately.

    These injuries may also be minimized by insurance companies and defense attorneys unless they are backed up by strong medical evidence. Furthermore, direct contact with the road in a motorcycle accident can cause disfiguring skin injuries, often called “road rash” – a term that conveys just how serious it can actually be.

    In order to avoid getting into a motorcycle accident, it is best to be cautious on the road and obey traffic laws at all times. However, many accidents are caused when motorists are lax in their adherence to the laws of the road or fail to share the road safely with motorcyclists. Even the most defensive motorcyclists can get hurt in these instances.

    Some of the frequent causes of motorcycle accidents include:

    • Speeding;
    • Following a motorcyclist too closely;
    • Turning left into the path of a motorcyclist;
    • Changing lanes without looking;
    • Failing to yield to the biker;
    • Using a cell phone while driving;
    • Collisions with fixed objects;
    • Improperly maintained roadways;
    • Pulling out in front of a motorcycle without enough time or space; and
    • Failing to pay attention to the surroundings.
  • How an Attorney Can Help

    Many, if not most motorcycle accident lawsuits are based on the idea that someone else’s negligence caused the accident and subsequent injury. Proving this can be more difficult than it seems; that’s why having an experienced Morgan & Morgan motorcycle accident attorney, who has a thorough understanding of how to build an effective case, is so important.

    To determine fault in a motorcycle accident, your attorney will perform a complete investigation of the accident and injury. Not only do we have experience with this, but we also have an understanding of the tactics insurance companies and their defense attorneys will use to try and minimize your injury and the defendant’s role in it in their attempts to avoid paying compensation.

    Some of the things your attorney will do to compile evidence and build your case include:

    • Evaluating the scene of the accident;
    • Reviewing reports from Lakeland police, photographs, and sobriety tests, if available;
    • Reviewing your medical records;
    • Questioning witnesses;
    • Recreating the accident;
    • Contacting experts in the areas of accident injuries, motorcycle performance, collisions, and scene investigation;
    • Contacting insurance companies;
    • Review your driving history; and
    • Reviewing the driving history of any other drivers involved in the accident.

    With this information, our attorneys can then begin building a compelling case that someone else was responsible for your injury and that you deserve compensation for your damages.
