Car-Motorcycle Collision in Miami

Car Motorcycle CollisionMotorcycle drivers have as many rights as other types of drivers out on the road, but should be treated with greater care as individuals riding are more exposed, and thus more likely to suffer injuries if involved in an accident. If you’ve been in a car-motorcycle collision in Miami, we can help. With over 100 years of cumulative experience as attorneys handling motorcycle accidents in Florida, we are well-versed in every aspect of the law and are skilled in pursuing cases similar to yours.

Motorcycle accidents can be more severe than those where only cars are involved because the individual driving the motorcycle does not have a large car surrounding him or her for protection. Florida law mandates that all motorcycle drivers have a motorcycle license and that individuals under 21 wear a helmet at all times. We recommend you wear a helmet regardless of age if you are driving a motorcycle.

Act Quickly After a Car-Motorcycle Collision in Miami

It’s important to immediately take action once you’ve been in an accident because the evidence supporting liability of the other party can be crucial to your case and harder to secure after time has passed. Society, as a whole, tends to view motorcycles and their drivers as dangerous. We will work hard to prove which party was actually at fault. Some common causes of car-motorcycle accidents include:

  • Inattentive drivers
  • Distracted drivers (texting, on the phone, etc.)
  • Drunk drivers
  • DUI/DWI collisions
  • Negligence and recklessness
  • Failure to obey traffic laws
  • Failure to yield to the right of way

If you’ve been in an accident, you should first contact our team of attorneys, as they will guide you through the best way to proceed. Our team will go about collecting evidence for your claim. You should, if possible, record video and take pictures of the scene of the collision, ensure you speak with as many witnesses as you can, ask them for a written statement as to what they saw, and take down their contact information for later use. If possible, collect your motorcycle and do not disturb any damage that may have been caused to it, as this can be claimed as part of your recovery from the other party.

Common Types of Car-Motorcycle Collision Claims

A collision can occur in many different ways, many of them resulting in damage to your body or personal belongings. These are the most common collision claims:

  • Rear end collisions
  • Hit and runs
  • Mechanical failure of vehicle
  • Road hazard collisions
  • Bad faith claims
  • Intersection impact
  • Malfunctioning traffic signals

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
