Wondering if you need a motorcycle lawyer in the state of Florida? Experience counts. It’s absolutely true; our Brotman, Nusbaum and Ibrahim (BNI) experienced Florida motorcycle accident lawyers will be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve! If you or someone you know were involved in a motorcycle accident in Florida and sustained an injury, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:
- Your injuries
- Medical bills
- Newfound financial hardship
However, in order to recover “damages” in Florida in a personal injury lawsuit- specifically a motorcycle accident- you must first prove that the accident was directly caused by another person’s negligence. Because motorcycles are a notoriously dangerous means of transportation, and because a motorcyclist is not a covered person under the No-Fault Law in Florida, you will need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to help you with your case.
No-fault coverage ensures that all medical bills will be paid, regardless of who was at fault in an accident. But since no-fault laws do not apply to motorcycles, this means that any motorcycle driver must pursue compensation from the other driver’s insurance for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and damage to the motorcycle. But don’t worry, at Brotman, Nusbaum, and Ibrahim (BNI), you’re in good hands. We have some of the best motorcycle accident lawyers in Florida. We will help you evaluate your case, file the appropriate paperwork, and represent you in settlement hearings or in court.
Motorcycle accidents inherently present unique challenges for a lawyer, because the majority of the general public has a significant bias against operators of a motorcycle. The commonly held perception is that anyone driving a motorcycle is some kind of gang member, a daredevil, a noise pollutant or a general nuisance. Therefore, when anyone is injured driving a motorcycle, people generally think they must have gotten what they deserved. As your attorneys, the lawyers at Brotman, Nusbaum, and Ibrahim (BNI) play a critical role in identifying and overcoming these biases. To win, we must be show that the motorcyclist was operating their motorcycle in a reasonable, prudent, and legal manner.
Recovering Damages After a Motorcycle Accident
Having experienced legal representation can mean a big difference. Having your motorcycle replaced and your medical bills paid for is far better than losing your bike and paying thousands of dollars for the rest of your life! Our effective motorcycle lawyers can often recover damages that can pay for medical bills, damaged property, loss of work and wages, physical therapy and much more. If you can prove that another driver’s negligent actions caused your accident that resulted in your injury, you can file a motorcycle accident claim against another driver. What would be considered “ driver negligence?” Anything from:
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Failure to follow traffic laws, signs, or signals
- Running a red light
- Failing to stop at a STOP sign
- Making illegal turns
- And obviously, a DUI
Did you know that you could also file personal injury lawsuit against the city or state government? If the government fails to maintain roadways, traffic signals, or signs and it results in a motorcycle accident, the state is liable for damages. Our government has a responsibility to ensure that all roadways are safe and free of common hazards like potholes, obstructed streets, and that all road signs and traffic signals are working properly- in full view for all drivers to see.
Lastly, you can also file a lawsuit for damages against the actual motorcycle manufacturer, if your accident was caused by a mechanical malfunction or design defect.
