We Represent Motorcycle Accident Victims in Opa-Locka, FL

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.

At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we represent motorcycle accident victims whether they live in Opa-Locka or the crash occurred in Opa-Locka. Do not hesitate to contact our motorcycle accident lawyers in Opa-Locka for help in pursuing a motorcycle accident insurance claim or lawsuit.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Opa-Locka

We have worked on motorcycle crash cases arising from all types of negligence. Some of the most common cases involve:

Let Us Investigate the Crash

After you or a loved one are involved in a motorcycle accident, your first thought is to get medical help and heal. Your second thought is to hold the at-fault driver responsible and receive a settlement. However, winning a settlement or court award requires you to have proof that the other driver was at fault and proof of your injuries.

To gain the evidence that will establish your case, you should have an Opa-Locka motorcycle accident lawyer investigate the collision. 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

When a negligent driver causes you harm, that driver is responsible for compensating you for your injuries. Our Opa-Locka motorcycle accident attorneys will fight hard for you to receive full and fair compensation for your:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages and employment benefits
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Loss of normal life
  • Loss of the affection of your spouse
We Can Help You With the Insurer and in Court

Most motorcycle accident claims are resolved through an insurance settlement. However, this is not always possible. The driver who hit you may not have had insurance. Or, the insurer may wrongfully deny your claim or refuse to negotiate for a fair settlement. When you run into these insurance issues after a crash, we may recommend you pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

Our attorneys for motorcycle accidents in Opa-Locka are prepared to take your case through trial. We are experienced litigators and are not intimidated to go up against the driver and their insurer.
