Unfortunately, many people assume that when a collision occurs between a motorcycle and another vehicle, it must have been the fault of the person driving the motorcycle. This is a common misconception in our society today; motorists often believe that they have more rights on the road than those who choose motorcycles as their preferred method of transportation. As experienced Orlando personal injury attorneys, we know that those who ride motorcycles generally experience extremely severe injuries when involved in an accident, simply due to the lack of protection drivers of other types of vehicles are afforded. If you have been injured in an accident caused by another motorist's negligence, we urge you to contact Adams & Luka immediately for exceptional legal support and guidance.
Injured motorcyclists often have a more difficult time recovering damages in Florida than those who drive cars, trucks, and SUVs. This is in part due to the state's insurance regulations, and insurance carriers who are dishonest and further complicate the process. This is why it is vital that you choose an Orlando motorcycle accident attorney who is skilled in this area of practice. You may be eligible for compensation of costs including medical, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more, depending on the facts of your case.Collecting Damages in a Florida Motorcycle Accident
While it may be necessary to file a lawsuit, in most cases a settlement may be reached out of court. Insurance companies are not easy to deal with, and often under value or deny claims, particularly when a motorcycle is involved. The insurance company may drag its feet in filing and processing your claim. Before you ever accept a settlement, consult with a capable attorney. Our injury lawyers are skill negotiators, a very important fact when dealing with insurance companies. Most would rather not become involved in a lawsuit, especially when you have a strong case and it is clear that the defendant is at-fault. We will negotiate on your behalf, or proceed forward with litigation if it becomes necessary in order to recover the damages you are eligible for. If you settle with the insurance company before contacting an attorney, you have no legal recourse in terms of collecting additional compensation.Motorcycles and Product Liability
There are situations in which a manufacturer may be responsible for damages, when an accident occurs because of a faulty or malfunctioning part/component. As long as you were operating the motorcycle in the manner it was intended and the performance of the bike has not changed since you originally purchased it, you may be able to show that the manufacturer was negligent or in some other way liable for the accident and your resulting injuries. Defective fuel systems, tires, accelerators, and brakes are some of the reasons for product liability claims.Contact Adams & Luka Now
