Personal Injury Lawyer – Florida Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycle accidents can have such life-ending or life-altering effects in terms of the seriousness of injuries that can be sustained, it is very important that victims contact a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible following the accident. Florida motorcycle accident attorney Mark J. Leeds understands the circumstances that an injury victim from a motorcycle accident faces, and he also knows that in most cases, insurance companies undervalue claims for motorcycle accidents and often try to offer settlements less than the actual cost that your injuries may entail.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riders at Particular Risk
Motorcycle accidents can occur for a number of reasons, but chief among them are driver inattention and a general disregard for motorcyclists among much of the car driving population. Other factors that can contribute to motorcycle accidents are poor road conditions, extreme weather, or drivers driving at excessive speeds. If you have suffered injuries in an accident, Florida personal injury attorney, Mark J. Leeds can evaluate your case and investigate your accident to determine all of the factors that could have led to your injuries. If there are responsible parties that may need to be held accountable, Mark will aggressively represent you and advocate on your behalf so that you have the best possibility of obtaining all of the compensation to which you may be entitled.
Because motorcycle riders are vulnerable to being thrown from their bikes or catapulted to the pavement, they are especially at risk for serious injuries when involved in accidents. Some of the most common injuries seen in victims of Florida motorcycle accidents are:
- Fractures of shoulders, arms, and/or wrists after flying over the handlebars
- Fractures of the femur from laying the bike down or from being hit directly by a vehicle
- Head/neck/spine trauma and/or paralysis
- Severe lacerations and asphalt embedded into flesh after being drug along the roadway
- Amputation of limbs
Head Injuries Can Beset a Motorcycle Accident Victim Even with a Helmet
Sometime, motorcycle riders who are injured in an accident believe that they are not eligible for remuneration because they were not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. Florida law allows motorcycle riders to ride without protective headgear, and it is a matter of your own personal liberties as to whether or not you choose to don a helmet when riding a motorcycle. In a serious motorcycle accident, a head or brain injury can be serious even if the rider was wearing a helmet. Although insurance companies may try to argue that the lack of a helmet made certain injuries worse and that therefore the insurance company should not be held liable, a helmet cannot actually alter the physics of what occurs in a collision, nor can a helmet prevent certain kinds of injuries. Motorcycle accident lawyer Mark J. Leeds can bring in experts in physics and engineering, if necessary, to demonstrate that wearing a helmet may not have made a significant difference in your injuries
