Why You Need a Lawyer

Motorcyclists lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle and are vulnerable to serious injuries in a crash. Injured motorcyclists may have extensive medical bills and lost wages while recovering from their injuries. Because of the potentially substantial losses, it is important that your rights are protected after a serious motorcycle wreck. Our experienced Pasco County motorcycle accident attorneys can investigate your accident to determine cause and skillfully assist you in holding responsible parties accountable.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Although some motorcycle accidents occur because of rider error, many are caused by the negligence of other drivers. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers: Motorcycles are smaller than passenger vehicles. Distracted or inattentive drivers may fail to register the motorcycle in the road and cause a crash by violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.
  • Vehicle blind spots: A driver who fails to do a head check before changing lanes can hit a motorcycle traveling in the driver’s blind spot.
  • Hazardous road conditions: Two-wheeled motorcycles are lighter and less stable than four-wheeled passenger vehicles. Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes, uneven pavement, slippery surfaces, and debris in the road can cause serious motorcycle accidents.

What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident

Knowing what to do after a motorcycle crash can help you protect your health and your rights.

  • Get medical attention: It goes without saying that you should get emergency medical attention for any serious injuries immediately. Even without obvious injuries, it is best to get checked out by a medical professional after a motorcycle accident.
  • Collect evidence: Take photos of the scene with your cell phone, including photos of the bike and the other vehicle involved. Make sure to include pictures of the roadway and any existing skid marks. Take pics of driver’s license or contact information of any eye witnesses on the scene.
  • Call the police: You may speak with the police officer on the scene but refrain from discussing the accident with anyone else. If you believe the other driver was drunk or distracted, tell the police officer.
  • Save your clothing, equipment, and bike: These items may be valuable evidence in proving your claim for compensation.
  • Contact Florin Gray Bouzas Owens, LLC: Our team of litigators can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
