Opa-Locka was founded by the Father of Naval Aviation, Glenn Hammond Curtiss. It is a city of just over 4 square miles in Miami-Dade County. Its boundaries are NW 151st Street, NW 47th Avenue, and NW 17th Avenue. The southern border is jagged and comprised of E 65th Street and NW 135th Street. The urban community was chartered in May 1926. The area where the community was established was originally named Opa-tisha-wocka-locka by the Seminole Native Americans. Curtiss developed the city with the theme of Arabian Nights and utilized Moorish architecture. As of 2018, the city had a population of more than 16,300 people.
Long gone are the days when Opa-Locka began as a planned community. Now, the community is crisscrossed by several major roads and accessible from several highways. The small city sees a fair amount of traffic, which increases the risk of auto accidents, including motorcycle crashes.

We will gather the crash report, photos, and eyewitness statement, including your own. We also will look for any traffic, weather, or surveillance camera footage of the accident or of the negligent driver in the seconds or minutes before the crash.
Through a thorough and independent investigation, we will uncover evidence of what happened to the cause the crash, who was at fault, and whether any other party is liable for your injuries.Motorcycle Accident Compensation
