Palm Beach County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Don’t accept blame for a motorcycle crash you didn’t cause. If someone else was at fault, get compensated with help from a Palm Beach County motorcycle accident lawyer.
Riding a motorcycle can be a thrilling experience. Motorcycle riders share a love of adventure and the open road. Coupled with this adventurous spirit, motorcyclists must practice safe driving behaviors, including a heightened awareness of all other vehicles on the road. However, drivers of passenger vehicles do not always extend this same heightened awareness to motorcyclists.
Due to a motorcycle’s smaller size, many motorcycle accidents occur because other drivers simply “didn’t see” the motorcycle. In fact, in 42 percent of motorcycle accidents in which another car is involved, the accident occurred when the vehicle made a left turn and the motorcyclist traveled straight. The motorcycle is often not respected in the same way that a passenger vehicle is.
If another driver caused your motorcycle accident, you could be entitled to a settlement. A Palm Beach County motorcycle accident lawyer with the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo can work to make sure you get the money that you’re owed.
Know Who Caused Your Motorcycle Wreck
After an accident, motorcyclists are often faced with the unfair burden of negative stereotypes. Society often views motorcyclists as reckless. In an accident, a motorcyclist may immediately be seen as at fault—no matter the evidence to the contrary.
An insurance company is likely to exploit the narrative of the reckless motorcyclist, making it harder to get the settlement you’re owed. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, a Palm Beach County motorcycle accident lawyer can be an invaluable partner in combating this unfair stereotype and getting you proper compensation.
There are numerous scenarios in which another driver or third party might have been responsible for your motorcycle collision:
- Driver was drunk or distracted
- Driver was following too closely

- Driver made an improper lane change
