Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle Crash Orlando & Central Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

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.

Client Reviews

I would like thank my attorney Thomas Luka. I knew from the beginning I had the right guy in my corner. While celebrating with family and friends at a Public Park in Seminole County, a fight broke out among various people. Myself, and a good friend, broke up the fight and the instigators left. Six months later, I was wrongly accused as the person who started the fight. The first attorney I hired could not even get a response from the State Attorney handling the case. Someone referred me to Tom and I felt comfortable at his demeanor and reactions.

After conversations with Tom, who knew I would settle for nothing less than a FULL DISMISSAL due to my innocence, I hired him. His firm of Adams and Luka did the due diligence by interviewing witnesses and the police who were on the scene, as well as starting a dialogue with the State Attorney. After gathering statements from witnesses, Tom was able to present a strong argument on my behalf to the State Attorney on why the case should be dismissed. If the State Attorney was not willing to dismiss the case, Tom was ready to take the case to trial.

The result by Thomas Luka: Case Dismissed.

I am 53 years old with a spotless record and glad to keep it that way thanks to the time, effort, hard work, and professionalism of the Adams and Luka and Tom Luka.

Thomas Luka left a life-long great impression of lawyers. He was always professional, on time, and answered things honestly. From the start and during the 14 months it went on - Tom was very upfront and honest with me about the possible outcomes. The result was better than I had hoped for. Tom really over-delivered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Marcela Giorgi
