Motorcycle Accidents in Miami Springs, Florida

Miami Springs is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida. It was founded by the Father of Naval Aviation, Glenn Hammond Curtiss. The city was one of the first planned communities that arose during the land boom of the 1920s. By 1926, the area had been incorporated as a city, and some time later was renamed after a local freshwater spring.

As of 2018, the area had an estimated population of 14,315. Though the area is not large, it is fewer than 3 square miles, it sees its fair share of motorcycle accidents. The city has easy access to E. Okeechobee Road, NW 36th Street, Hialeah Drive, and other major roads, including South and North Royal Poinciana Blvd, Curtiss Pkwy, Westward Drive, and NW 67th Ave. On these busy roads as well as the quieter neighborhood streets, motorcycle riders may be involved in serious and fatal collisions with cars, commercial trucks, and other motorcycles.

After you or a loved one are the victim of a motorcycle crash in the area, call our motorcycle accident lawyers in Miami Springs for sound advice and skilled legal representation.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are far too common in Florida and throughout the U.S. These crashes sometimes occur because of a negligent rider. However, in our Miami Springs motorcycle accident attorneys’ experience, careless and reckless motorists are typically at fault.

Some of the most causes of motorcycle wrecks include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving impaired due to drugs or alcohol
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Improper passing
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Unprotected left turns
  • Following too closely
  • Sudden stops

You may not be sure of what happened to cause your or your loved one’s motorcycle accident. We recommend calling a motorcycle accident lawyers in Miami Springs right away. This ensures you have someone to promptly and thoroughly investigate the crash.

We will secure all of the evidence available to determine what led to the collision and who was at fault. This evidence may include the police report, eyewitness testimony, photos of the crash, and videos of the crash from dash cams or nearby surveillance or traffic cameras.

Once we know who is at fault, we can identify whose insurance coverage should apply to your injuries and provide compensation.

Common Motorcycle Crash Injuries

Our lawyers for motorcycle accidents in Miami Springs have handled crash claims involving all types of injuries. Some of the most common injuries we see include:

  • Road rash and burns
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones in the arms, hands, legs, and feet
  • Internal organ damage and bleeding
  • Severe soft tissue injuries
  • Crushed limbs
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis

We will work closely with you, your medical providers, and experts to determine the physical, emotional, and financial costs of your injuries. This is essential in determining the value of your claim, including your past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and reduced future earnings.

Pursuing Motorcycle Accident Injury Compensation

Most auto accidents, including those involving motorcycles, are resolved through an auto insurance claim. The insurance provider of the at-fault motorist should provide the crash victim with compensation for the victim’s physical, psychological, and financial injuries. In many cases, our Miami Springs motorcycle accident attorneys are able to negotiate a fair settlement for your injuries.

However, an insurance settlement may not be available if the at-fault driver lacked insurance coverage or the insurer wrongfully denies your claim. We also have run into issues in which an insurer approves the claim yet, in bad faith, refuses to agree to an appropriate settlement for your damages.

When we are unable to reach a settlement agreement, we prepare to go to trial. We have decades of experience litigating motorcycle accident claims throughout South Florida. We are not afraid to persuasively present the facts to a judge and jury and demand that you be properly compensated for all of your injuries.

Whether through a settlement or court verdict, we will fight for you to receive compensation for your past and future:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Reduced Earning Potential
  • Loss of Normal Life
  • Loss of Consortium
