Personal Injury Attorneys
Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter – The Florida Firm
A motorcycle accident is not just another motor vehicle accident. Most motorcycle accidents result in injuries, and the injuries are more likely to be severe when you are on a bike than in a car. The majority of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle are caused by negligence on the part of the other driver. Motorcycle accident laws are not all the same as auto accident laws. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need the help of an experienced Orlando motorcycle attorney.
Investigating Your Motorcycle Accident
Determining the cause of your accident, and who was responsible, can require special investigation which means that you need to work with an attorney who knows motorcycle accidents and who works with the right investigators.
Single vehicle motorcycle accidents may have no witnesses. They may be the result of a motorcycle defect, a roadway defect, or the behavior of another driver whose vehicle was not actually involved in the crash, but who can still be held responsible.
The most common cause of multivehicle motorcycle accidents is drivers who violate motorcyclists’ right of way. These negligent drivers often claim that they did not see the motorcycle.
Why You Need Help
Motorcycle accident injuries are often catastrophic. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and other serious injuries can ruin your life and create very high medical bills. Compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries can relieve that financial burden and give you access to the very best care maximizing your chance of physical recovery.
Without aggressive and dedicated motorcycle accident attorneys, the odds are stacked against you. Motorcycles are becoming a more popular and accepted form of transportation, but prejudice against bikers is still a very real problem. Your opponent will try to use the stereotype against you, swaying the jury to believe that as a biker you are reckless by nature.
We present the real facts that wipe out the stereotype. More often than not it is the other driver who behaves carelessly and causes a motorcycle accident. You are a real person whose life has been forever changed by the negligence of another. You deserve fair and just compensation for your injuries.
