When these collisions are another motorist’s fault, motorcycle accident victims or surviving family members may have the right to pursue compensation. However, doing so can be a difficult and contentious process. It is best to work with an experienced and skilled motorcycle accident attorney in Coral Springs to improve your chance of obtaining full and fair compensation for your injuries.

The city encompasses about 24 square miles and has an estimated population of 133,000 as of 2017. While Coral Springs is part of the larger Miami metropolitan area, it is also a unique and welcoming community. Due to strict building codes, the city has a distinct aesthetic.
Beyond its visual appeal, the city is known for low crime rates and being family friendly. In 2012, Coral Springs ranked No. 94 in the U.S. and No. 3 in Florida on Money Magazine’s list of the “100 Best Places to Live.” Prior to this, Coral Springs was the first local or state government in the U.S. to receive the Malcom Baldrige National Quality Award.
Coral Spring’s downtown area is located at Sample Road and University Drive. The area has undergone significant redevelopment over the years, which has enabled residents and visitors to enjoy open-air shopping and entertainment. There you can find local libraries, shopping centers, doctor’s offices, businesses, coffee shops, restaurants, and bars.
Several large and busy roads run through Coral Springs, including University Drive, also known as I-817, Sample Road, which is also I-834, W.

At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we believe in acting promptly after a serious traffic accident. We will immediately start to gather and analyze evidence regarding what happened and why.
Our firm’s doors have been open for more than 49 years, and during that time, we have found that many motorcycle crashes occur because of:
- Drowsy driving
- Distracted driving
- Reckless or aggressive driving
- Following too closely
- Failing to follow traffic signs or signals
- Failing to check blind spots
- Improperly changing lanes
- Failing to yield to the right of way
- Carelessly merging into traffic
- Impaired driving
Through our investigation, we will not only identify the careless conduct that led to the crash, we also will identify the at-fault party. When we are confident regarding who is liable for your injuries, we will pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit and insurance claim.Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries
For almost five decades, Philip M. Gerson and his legal team have fought hard for accident victims to receive the compensation they deserve under the law. Through negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider or through a personal injury trial, we will fight for you to receive compensation for your:
- Medical Bills
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
While you may have the right to compensation for each of these physical, emotional, and financial injuries, your total financial recovery depends on many additional factors.
