Motorcycle Accident and Personal Injury Liability Claims

Motorcycle accident liability is based on concepts of negligence. Negligence is a failure to act safely. Examples of motorcycle accident liability may be due to improper turns, speeding, or failing to yield. Over the last 50 years, Gerson & Schwartz PA lawyers have helped clients seriously injured in nearly every type of motorcycle accident scenario. From head on collisions to T-bone accidents, accidents due to drunk driving, texting, even dram shop liability claims. Our Miami Dade motorcycle accident attorneys have the skills, reputation, and resources to help clients recover for serious harms and losses. Legal liability and financial responsibility of negligent drivers, operators, and all other potential responsible parties are carefully analyzed in every case. Sometimes, legal responsibility in a motorcycle crash in Miami-Dade can be found based on a special relationship between drivers, vehicle operators or some other contractual agreement such as an employer/employee relationship. When an accident happens, you need an experienced attorney by your side to help determine who is responsible and why and to fight for the compensation to which you are entitled. If we are your lawyers, we won't hesitate to bring your case to court if a fair settlement offer is not made. At Gerson & Schwartz, our Miami-Dade County motorcycle accident lawyers represent serious and catastrophic accident victims injured in motorcycle collisions, so please reach out to us today by calling (305) 371-6000 or (877) 475-2905 or contact us online.

Common types of motorcycle accidents in Miami Dade County, our lawyers have experience include representing clients injured due to:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless or Careless Driving
  • Distracted Driving
  • Drunk Drivers
  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Improper Turns

Badly-Needed Compensation

Motorcycle accidents can cause severe injuries that require months to heal with devastating financial consequences. Our clients often find themselves home, unable to work, as they watch medical bills from Baptist Hospital or Jackson Memorial Hospital pile up in their mailboxes without any hope of paying for them. For example, you might have suffered any of the following

  • Head Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Wrongful Death
  • Amputation
  • Scarring or Disfigurement
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Cuts or lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Pinched nerves
  • Dislocated joints

Victims need compensation to help them heal and continue to pay their bills. Fortunately, if your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you can likely receive monetary damages for the following:

Medical expenses: Victims often obtain compensation for the medical expenses associated with your injuries, such as transportation costs to and from the hospital, doctor’s visits, surgery, painkillers or other prescription drugs, and equipment like crutches or wheelchairs.

Lost wages: Some injuries are so severe you cannot return to work while you heal. You can receive a sum of money to replace those lost wages, as well as any lost wages in the future if your injury prevents you from returning to work.

Property damage: The collision probably damaged your motorcycle. You can receive money to repair or replace it.

Pain and suffering: You can often obtain compensation for the physical pain and inconvenience you experience because of your injuries. The amount you receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and how well you have documented your pain.

Emotional distress or mental anguish: If you suffered a physical injury, you can also receive compensation for the emotional effects. For example, you can receive damages for embarrassment, anger, grief, anxiety, depression, or fright.

Your spouse and children might also bring lawsuits for loss of consortium. Your children can receive compensation for the loss of care, guidance, and instruction. Your spouse can receive compensation for loss of companionship, assistance, and sexual intimacy.

Try a Risk-Free Consultation

Who you hire as a lawyer is the most critical decision you will make in your case. A qualified attorney knows how to gather the evidence necessary to achieve a favorable verdict and what legal facts you need to establish in court.

To help you better understand the services we provide, Miami Dade County motorcycle accident attorneys at Gerson & Schwartz offer all potential clients a free consultation and case evaluation. The process is entirely risk-free, with no strings attached. You can ask any questions that you want and explain your situation so we have a better handle on the facts. We will make sure you fully understand our contingency fee agreement, which requires no payment of attorney fees unless we win your case. At the end of the consultation, we can give you our opinion about whether you have a valid legal claim or whether we need more facts.

If, after meeting with us, you want to go ahead, we can formalize the attorney-client relationship. By contrast, if you want to meet with other Miami-Dade car accident attorneys, that is perfectly fine with us as well.

Avoid Delay

Florida law gives accident victims a short window of time to bring a lawsuit. In particular, you can only sue within four years of the accident. If you miss this deadline, you can wave goodbye to any compensation because the judge will throw your case out of court. Although the law has an exception if you could not uncover your injuries within four years, you should not rely on this exception.

Fortunately, there is no reason to delay, as injured motorcyclists are better served by starting their claim as soon as possible. Our motorcycle accident attorneys are here to advise you and are anxious to begin investigating your case.

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.
