Motorcycle Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Boynton Beach

Aggressive Representation You Can Trust

During collisions, motorcycle riders almost literally have the clothes on their back to protect them from catastrophic injury. As a result, motorcycle riders are about thirty times more likely to die in a crash than four-wheel vehicle occupants. Head injuries and severe blood loss, usually from internal wounds, are the primary causes of death.

The compassionate Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyers at Smith, Ball & Báez understand the intense pain and suffering these victims must endure. We also understand that the stress of paying medical bills makes the emotional distress even worse. So, we work hard to obtain fair compensation for these losses. Throughout the process, we also proactively communicate with you, so you are never in the dark.

Begin the process by contacting our firm at (561) 500-HELP today and scheduling your free initial consultation.

What Causes Motorcycle Crashes?

The tortfeasor’s (negligent driver’s) failure to maintain a proper lookout is one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents.

Left-turn collisions are a good example. If drivers try to turn left against traffic, when they think they see a break, they quickly accelerate to shoot through the gap. Unfortunately, these tortfeasors are often not looking out for motorcycle riders. So, they turn directly into the rider’s path.

Indeed, many motorcyclists who have gone down probably heard the tortfeasor say something like “You came out of nowhere.” Statements like these usually mean the tortfeasor did not use sufficient caution.

Some form of driver impairment also causes a number of vehicle collisions. Examples include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and driving while sleepy.

Establishing Liability with Electronic Evidence

In order to obtain fair compensation for injuries, motorcycle accident victims must establish negligence by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not).

Frequently, the victim/plaintiff’s own testimony, along with the police accident report, is sufficient to establish liability. But the victim’s testimony is usually unavailable in catastrophic injury or wrongful death cases. Additionally, the police accident report is often inaccurate or incomplete.

In these situations, our Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyers often turn to a vehicle’s Event Data Recorder.

Much like a commercial jet’s black box, an EDR measures and records things like:

  • Vehicle speed
  • Steering angle
  • Engine RPM
  • Brake application

Our team must act quickly to preserve this evidence. Otherwise, the insurance company might “accidentally” destroy it.

Additionally, Florida has very strong vehicle data privacy laws. As a result, a Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyer must normally obtain a court order prior to accessing and downloading vehicle data. This process is quite technical. It takes a lot more than a screwdriver and a laptop.

Surveillance video footage is often compelling electronic evidence as well. Even if the camera did not capture the entire wreck, the footage is often a vital piece of the puzzle.

Electronic evidence is very reliable in court. Unlike eyewitnesses, assuming these devices were working correctly, cameras and EDRs are never biased and never wrong.

Damages in a motorcycle crash claim usually include compensation for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.
