Motorcycle Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Delray Beach

Compassionate Counsel That Puts Your Needs First

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable when it comes to collisions involving cars and trucks. Given that motorcyclists do not have any of the protections that occupants of a motor vehicle have, they often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries in crashes. Accidents involving motorcyclists are often caused by driver error, including situations in which another motorist is distracted, intoxicated, or acting aggressively behind the wheel.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in Florida, you should get in touch with a Delray beach motorcycle accident lawyer to learn more about your options for seeking financial compensation.

Get the Facts About Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are largely preventable, yet they occur much too frequently in Florida and across the country.

The following are some key facts about motorcycle crashes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV):

  • Nearly 5,000 motorcyclists were killed in collisions in 2018
  • 531 of those motorcycle fatalities occurred in Florida in 2018, where a total of 7,849 motorcyclists also suffered serious injuries
  • Florida reported a total of 9,143 motorcycle accidents in 2018
  • Motorcyclists are approximately 28 times more likely than a vehicle occupant to sustain fatal injuries in a collision
  • Almost 30 percent of all deadly motorcycle collisions involve a motorcyclist who was not wearing a helmet
  • Alcohol is a major factor in both nonfatal and deadly motorcycle crashes, including alcohol consumption by another motorist or a motorcyclist

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes

Since motorcyclists do not have much protection in the event of a collision, they often suffer life-threatening and debilitating injuries.

Common injuries in a motorcycle crash may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Limb loss or amputations
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage
  • Severe road rash
  • Contusions and severe bruising

File Your Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit on Time

If you are unable to obtain sufficient compensation from your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage after filing an insurance claim, you may be able to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit. When a motorist in Florida, including a motorcyclist, suffers serious injuries in a collision, that injured party can be eligible to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. However, it is important to recognize that Florida law only gives you a limited amount of time to file your claim. Under Florida law, your motorcycle accident lawsuit will likely need to be filed within four years.

If you fail to file your lawsuit within the clock established by the statute of limitations, your claim will become time-barred. Do not wait to get in touch with a Delray Beach motorcycle accident attorney.
