Motorcycle Accident

Tampa Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle AccidentsWhether you ride for pleasure or as a practical way to commute, you may face a number of hazards on Florida roadways. The vehicles with which you share the road are far larger; this places you at a distinct disadvantage in the event of a collision. In addition to facing a greater risk of injury in an accident, you may be at a higher risk of being involved in a collision in the first place because motorcycles are smaller and more difficult to see than other vehicles. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers, objects in the road and defective bike parts may all contribute to a motorcycle accident.

For legal guidance in relation to a motorcycle-involved collision, call a Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer who is experienced in these matters. At Givens Givens Sparks, our team understands the unique challenges that must be dealt with in insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits related to motorcycle accidents. We seek maximum compensation on behalf of injured riders while protecting their legal rights to the fullest. You can learn more about our firm by arranging a free, confidential consultation.

  • Drunk Driver Accidents
    About one-third of traffic fatalities occur in accidents involving drunk drivers, and motorcycle accidents are no different. Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs place themselves and all others on the road at risk because their ability to safely operate a vehicle will be adversely affected. Our team handles motorcycle accident claims involving drunk drivers.

  • Investigating Motorcycle Accidents
    If you want to determine – and prove – exactly what caused your accident so you can seek compensation from the responsible party, you will need a skilled professional to carry out an investigation. At Givens Givens Sparks, we handle motorcycle accident investigations with the careful attention to detail that is necessary to accurately determine cause and fault.

  • Motorcycle Accident Causes
    Speeding, drunk driving, driving while distracted, failing to yield the right of way, running a red light – the causes of motorcycle accidents may vary depending on the unique situation. Determining cause is important if you are to recover financial compensation from the party that left you seriously injured.

  • Motorcyclist Injuries & Fatalities
    Based on nationwide traffic accident statistics from 2012, motorcyclists were about 5 times more likely to be injured and more than 26 times more likely to be killed in collisions than occupants of passenger cars (per vehicle mile traveled). This shows just how serious a motorcycle accident may be – and is why our attorneys are committed to helping riders seek justice.

  • Preventing Motorcycle-Involved Crashes
    Motorcycle riders and all other motorists can take specific steps to help reduce the chances of motorcycle-involved collisions in Florida. This may include obeying traffic laws, paying attention to the road at all times and, for drivers, taking extra care to notice whether motorcycles are present. Motorcyclists can ride defensively and improve their visibility by wearing bright, reflective clothing.

  • Protecting Tampa Riders' Rights
    Motorcycle riders have the same rights and privileges as other drivers on our roadways, and at our firm we believe in protecting riders' rights. Our lawyers help motorcyclists seek fair compensation when they are injured in traffic accidents by asserting these rights to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Types of Motorcycle Accidents
    Motorcycle accidents may involve different types of bikes, such as cruisers, choppers or sport bikes. They may also involve various types of collisions, such as left-turn accidents, accidents involving drunk drivers, intersection crashes, or single-bike collisions. Our team is experienced in handling all of these types of cases.

Injured in a motorcycle accident? Call our Tampa law firm.

Motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries, due largely in part to the fact that a rider's only protection is a helmet and the protective gear he or she is wearing. Road rash, broken bones, head trauma, internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries and soft tissue damage may require immediate hospitalization, emergency surgery, and ongoing medical treatment. Some of these injuries can even result in death.

Considering the serious nature of motorcycle crashes, it is important for riders
to work with legal professionals who can protect their right to compensation.

When a motorcyclist suffers serious or permanent injuries, he or she may be able to hold the at-fault party liable. Damages in a motorcycle accident claim may include medical costs, damage to the motorcycle, ongoing medical care, loss of earnings, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, emotional trauma and possibly more. Before accepting a settlement or signing anything that may limit his or her ability to recover maximum compensation, a motorcyclist should speak with an attorney.

Far too often, insurance companies attempt to make less of a rider's injuries to pay out as little as possible. A Tampa motorcycle accident attorney can put the necessary pressure on insurance providers and other interested parties, such as the at-fault driver's legal counsel, to seek a fair settlement or award. This can make all the difference for a person who has been injured and is dealing with the physical, emotional and financial issues that typically follow a serious accident. Contact Givens Givens Sparkstoday to take the first step in your case.

For Further Reading:

The process of filing a claim or lawsuit can be complex, and insurance companies often deny certain types of valid claims or offer a low settlement in the hopes that you will accept it. Fortunately, our firm never relents until you receive a fair settlement or verdict. How do you know what amount is fair?
