Boynton Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
When you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle wreck, you have a right to compensation from the responsible party. Find out how to proceed with your injury claim by working with a Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyer.
Motorcyclists share a love of travel and adventure. The joys of riding on two wheels across wide-open spaces are many. Coupled with this love for the road is the need for a heightened awareness of the hazards the road may present—including from other drivers.
However, drivers on four wheels are often not as mindful of bikers. As motorcyclists lack the protections of car drivers, they are five times more likely to die in a crash. These crashes are often caused because of other motorists’ inattention and unwillingness to share the road with motorcyclists.
If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle crash caused by a negligent driver, it’s important that the negligent driver be held accountable. A Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyer with the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo will work to make sure you get the full and fair compensation that you’re owed.
Determining Fault for a Motorcycle Crash
Our firm will review all details of your case to determine who is at fault. This will most likely involve going over police reports, traffic camera videos, eyewitness accounts, and any and all available evidence.
There is an unfortunate, persistent stereotype about motorcyclists that they are reckless, careless, and therefore responsible for any accidents in which they may be involved. An insurance company may use and exploit this narrative to portray you negatively and reduce your settlement amount.
Your Boynton Beach motorcycle accident lawyer will fight against this unfair stereotype and work to get you every penny you’re owed. We will hold the negligent party accountable, whether your accident was due to any of the following:
- Motorist was turning and did not see the motorcyclist
- Motorist was drunk or distracted
- Unsafe road conditions
- A defective motorcycle part
If another driver caused your accident, you shouldn’t be faced with the financial burden of your recovery alone. While the results of your accident can’t be changed, our office will work to get you full compensation so that you can recover some peace of mind.
Full Compensation for Your Losses
An insurance settlement offered immediately after a motorcycle accident is unlikely to cover your long-term needs. The insurance company will likely portray you as reckless, hoping to reduce your compensation amount.
We understand that a motorcycle crash can present you with many urgent financial needs, and that it can also affect your financial security for months or even years to come. Your attorney will work to get you compensation that takes into account all hardships presented by the accident, including any of the following that apply to your case:
- Current and future medical bills
- Motorcycle repair and replacement
- Lost wages and future income
- Physical and emotional therapy
- Decreased quality of life
Florida follows the doctrine of comparative negligence, meaning that your settlement amount will be reduced by the percentage of fault you are found to be responsible for. We will make certain that you have a case that proves how the other party was at fault—not you.
