A weekend pleasure ride down A1A on a motorcycle is a pastime for thousands of Floridians, but all too often, it can turn into a tragic circumstance when a motorbike accident occurs. The rising popularity of motorcycles has put more vehicles on the road, and when a crash happens, the driver and/or passengers are at great risk for serious injury (fractures, brain damage, road rash, disfigurement, paralysis) or death. When this occurs, a West Palm Beach motorcycle accident lawyer can assist those injured in filing an injury lawsuit and fighting to recover compensation for any injuries or other damages sustained. An experienced injury lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens can act as both an advocate and a guide to assist those who have been impacted.
Potential Impact of a Motorcycle Crash
In a motorcycle crash, the cyclist is 26 times more likely to die than a passenger in a traffic crash. Even if the outcome is not death, the chances of having a catastrophic injury are much greater than if the driver and/or passengers were traveling in an automobile. While motorcycles and motor vehicles must obey the same traffic laws, the ultimate consequences of a motorcycle accident are usually far more serious. Most motorcycle accidents are a case of negligence on the part of the driver of the motor vehicle. Common causes of motorcycle accidents, that a West Palm Beach motorcycle accident lawyer can assist with, are:
- Driver inattention
- Tailgating, speeding and other aggressive driving maneuvers
- Turning left in front of motorcycles
- Failing to yield right of way
- Making unsafe lane changes in front of motorcycles
- Improper road maintenance and hazards
- Poor weather conditions
