Fighting for Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries

Many motorcycle riders understand the dangers of their favorite activity, but statistics on motorcycle accidents in Florida might surprise you. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports that there are approximately 9,727 motorcycle crashes statewide every year, and more than 425 of them occur in Palm Beach County. For those injured and the families of deceased victims, the losses can be considerable.

If you were hurt in a motorcycle crash and need legal advice, please contact Smith, Ball & Báez to learn more about your remedies. You may be able to recover compensation for your losses, but it’s critical to retain counsel to assist with the process.

For more information, please contact us to set up a free consultation with a Jupiter motorcycle accident lawyer. You might also benefit from reviewing some basic information about your rights.

Driver Negligence is Behind Most Motorcycle Accidents

The term is generally associated with carelessness, but negligence has a specific meaning in the practice of law. To recover compensation as the victim of a motorcycle crash, you need to prove that the responsible motorist breached the legal duty to drive safely. You also need to show that this misconduct was the direct cause of the incident.

Some examples of driver negligence in motorcycle collisions include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to yield
  • Improper lane changes
  • Texting, talking on the phone, or other unlawful cell phone use
  • Other forms of distracted driving, such as eating, drinking, and using a GPS

From these examples, you can see how visibility is one of the biggest factors in motorcycle accidents. Though motorcycles are narrower and lower in profile, this doesn’t excuse other motorists from the duty to exercise care.

Your Rights as a Victim in a Motorcycle Crash Claim

Motorcycle accidents are similar to other crashes involving motorized vehicles in that the legal process starts by filing an insurance claim. You may encounter challenges in dealing with the responsible driver’s insurance company since these businesses look out for their own interests – not yours. If the insurer won’t agree to a reasonable amount to resolve your claim, you may need to go to court.

Our team at Smith, Ball & Báez will be at your side to get the compensation you deserve as the victim of a motorcycle accident.

Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to recover:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost income, if you were unable to work because of your injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Losses that affect your personal relationships
