Tampa Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Riding a motorcycle is so enjoyable of an experience that many, rather than using a motorcycle for commuting purposes only, take to the open road for pure pleasure. In fact, motorcycle riding is so popular that there is an entire culture surrounding it, with many people planning family or group rides as a way to enjoy the outdoors and spend time together.
But while motorcycling may be an enjoyable pastime, it is also an incredibly dangerous one. To be sure, the state of Florida sees more motorcycle accidents each year than nearly any other state. When a motorcycle accident occurs, those involved can suffer serious degrees of harm, including life-changing and fatal injuries. If you have been in an accident like this, our experienced Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys at the office of HD Law Partners want to meet with you.
Why Motorcycle Accident Happen
Like most motor vehicle accidents, Tampa motorcycle accidents are not inevitable; instead, they occur because of negligence. This failure to act with the proper degree of care is prevalent, and drivers, motorcyclists, and third parties alike can all be guilty of it. Some of the top acts of negligence that cause motorcycle accidents include:
- Drinking while driving;
- Driving while distracted;
- Illegal lane change;
- Following a motorcyclist too closely;
- Failing to yield;
- Aggressive driving; and
- Failing to look before turning or changing lanes.
The Consequences of a Motorcycle Accident Can Be Severe
When a motorcycle accident happens, the consequences can be very serious. Indeed, if a motorcycle accident does not result in death, it may leave the motorcyclist with permanent and disabling injuries, including a:
- Spinal cord injury;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Internal injury;
- Back or neck injury;
- Amputation injury;
- Bone fracture injury; and
Motorcycle accidents can also lead to disabling psychological injuries, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
You Deserve to Be Compensated after a Tampa Motorcycle Accident
In Tampa, motorcyclists injured in collisions maintain the right to bring forth a civil action against the at-fault party or file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer. In order to receive the full value of compensation that you deserve, you will need to prove that your accident would not have occurred but for the other party’s actions. You will also need to disprove any allegations of shared fault made against you, as contributory fault could reduce the value of your settlement.
Our lawyers know what it takes to recover large settlements for our clients. We will be responsible for gathering all evidence for your case, organizing your case, working with experts, and handling negotiations with the insurance adjuster. You can count on us to work hard for you.
