About Bal Harbour

Bal Harbour is an oceanfront village in Miami-Dade County that is world-renowned for its upscale environment, including Bal Harbour shopping mall, dining, hotels, and, of course, white sand beaches. Many people find that the roads in Bal Harbour are ideal for riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are not uncommon in this area.

The village’s unusual name is an interesting quirk of history. The village’s founders wanted to name the area “Bay Harbor,” but the planning committee didn’t think that was appropriate for a village that was on the beach. Instead, the committee invented a new name that would encompass a village that ran from the Biscayne Bay to the ocean. The letter "b" was taken from "Bay," and the "a" and "l" were taken from the name "Atlantic," and thus the word "Bal” was born. Given Bal Harbour's breathtaking location on the ocean, it attracts thousands of tourists every year. Sadly, many of those tourists end up being injured in motorcycle accidents in Bal Harbour and other areas of Miami Beach coastal roadways. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in Bal Harbour or Miami Beach you should speak to a an injury lawyer as soon as possible. There are no fees unless we collect and no upfront costs.

Bodily Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles offer far fewer safety features than ordinary passenger vehicles and, as such, a motorcycle accident can be much more dangerous (or even deadly) for a motorcyclist than a driver. Wearing a helmet and protective gear can help to mitigate this danger, but those methods are far from foolproof. If you were involved in an accident with a vehicle on your motorcycle, the chances are that your injuries are serious. Some common injuries we see with motorcycle accident victims include:

  • Broken bones, fractures, crushed bones, and dislocations
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
  • Catastrophic injury including spinal cord injuries, burn injuries and paralysis
  • Cuts, scrapes, bruises, and lacerations
  • Burns, including accident fires and road rash

If you have suffered any of these types of injuries, you are likely looking at the prospect of expensive medical bills, extensive time off work for healing and recovery, and significant pain and suffering.

Common Motorcycle Accident Scenarios in Bal Harbour

Many drivers on the road today simply are not as skilled driving around motorcyclists as they are around passenger vehicles. This lack of experience or lack of attention can lead to motorcycle accidents. Some of the most common types of motorcycle accident scenarios we see include:

  • Drivers not seeing motorcyclists because they are texting or otherwise not paying attention
  • Drivers turning left in front of motorcyclists
  • Drivers hitting motorcyclists from behind
  • Drivers opening their car doors before checking to see if someone else is approaching
  • Driver change lanes with a motorcycle in their blind spot
Why You Need to Hire a Bal Harbour Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Liability for motorcycle accidents is often based on negligence. Negligence occurs when one party fails to exercise the appropriate degree of care in preventing some kind of harm from occurring. For example, all drivers owe motorcyclists a duty not to cause accidents. Behavior that is consistent with that duty would be checking their blind spot before changing lanes. When a driver forgets to check their blind spot before changing lanes, and they hit you, then that driver's behavior has fallen below what was required of them, and they may be liable for your accident through negligence.

Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side.
