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

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

I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
