Florida Motorcycle Accident
Brandon Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle riders enjoy freedoms, leaving them exposed to dangers not faced by other automobile drivers and motorists. It is estimated that four million motorcycles account for two percent of all registered vehicles in the United States, yet each year motorcycle deaths represent an estimated five percent of all highway fatalities.
Motorcycle accidents are perhaps the most devastating of all vehicle-related accidents. Critical evidence may be lost if a motorcycle accident is not investigated immediately, so hiring a personal injury lawyer in the aftermath of a tragic motorcycle accident should be your top priority. At no cost to you, the personal injury attorneys of Holland & Lamoureux will evaluate your case and determine whether or not you have a case regarding the laws in Florida.
Motorcycle accidents and injuries can be caused by a number of factors, issues that might enhance the value of your claims, such as defective roadway designs, poor weather conditions, product defects (including defective tires or defective helmets), and recklessness or negligence of other drivers. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses and suffering.
Our legal team will investigate the physical evidence at the scene of the accident, interview witnesses, and document road maintenance, weather conditions, and other factors to determine the real cause of the collision. More importantly, there are certain laws that apply to car accident cases that do not apply to motorcycles. Motorcyclists are not required to carry PIP (or No-Fault) insurance. Therefore, if they are injured in a motorcycle crash in Florida, they do not have to prove their injuries are permanent in order to receive pain and suffering compensation.
If a loved one or you are a victim of a motorcycle accident, call Holland & Lamoureux, P.A. now at 813-655-9069. In all motorcycle accident cases, it is essential that measures be taken to promptly preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay. You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.
