Count on Our Dedicated Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Coconut Creek, FL, to Help You Get Your Life Back
Our firm understands motorcycle accidents are some of the most devastating crashes on the road. You may be dealing with several severe injuries and suffering from great pain. Your medical bills might be piling up, and you may be unable to work — possibly for a long time.
The job of our Coconut Creek, FL, motorcycle accident lawyers is to help you recover the compensation you need to start getting your life back. We can identify the responsible party or parties, gather evidence against them, hold them accountable, and help you get paid.
We Deal with the Insurance Companies on Your Behalf
To get compensated for your motorcycle accident injuries, you will most likely have to go through one or more insurance companies, no matter whose fault the crash was. Insurers employ entire departments of people whose job is to find ways to minimize what the company pays out. If you try to deal with the insurance company directly, you may get saddled with a subpar settlement that pays less than you deserve.
Our attorneys know how to take on insurers. We will negotiate with them on your behalf. We make sure our clients get compensated fairly for their injuries, and we can anticipate and counter any tactic the insurer might use to stop that from happening.
We Handle All the Paperwork for You
Motorcycle accident injury cases involve a lot of paperwork. There are pages and pages of forms that must get filed with the insurance company, the courts, and so forth. If you miss certain filing deadlines, you may lose your right to recover compensation.
Our attorneys handle all paperwork on your behalf. We make sure everything gets filed properly and on time.
We Identify the Responsible Parties and Hold Them Liable
Our first job upon taking your case is to conduct a complete investigation. Our goal is to paint a vivid picture of your accident and how it happened. From there, we identify all responsible parties and begin the process of collecting evidence to prove their liability.
Perhaps you are not sure if another party’s negligent actions caused or contributed to your crash. You should still speak with a motorcycle accident lawyer in Coconut Creek, FL. We may be able to find evidence of liability that was not readily apparent, or there may be one or more responsible parties you have not considered.
Often, another driver is partly or fully responsible for a motorcycle accident. This is especially the case if the driver violated one or more traffic laws:
- Improper lane change
- Driving under the influence
- Distracted driving (e.g., texting)
- Following too closely
- Opening a driver or passenger side door into a motorcyclist’s path
Aside from other motorists, additional parties may have contributed to your accident through their negligent actions. Depending on the circumstances, we may look at the following parties:
- The vehicle manufacturer: If a defective component in your motorcycle or another vehicle contributed to the accident, the manufacturer may be liable.
- The driver’s employer: Under Florida’s vicarious liability laws, an employer may be liable for damages caused by an employee while driving for work-related purposes.
- The local municipality: If a faulty traffic signal, missing road sign, or unsafe road conditions contributed to the accident, the local municipality could be liable.
Once we find the responsible party or parties, we build a strong, evidence-backed case and aggressively pursue them for damages. To find out more about how our attorneys can help you get paid, schedule a free consultation with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today by calling 1-800-747-3733.
Call Us Before Accepting a Deal from the Insurance Company
If the other driver was clearly at fault for your motorcycle accident, their insurer may call you in the days that follow, offering a quick settlement. They may entice you with a prospect of getting a check in the mail the same week — or even the same day.
Particularly if you are facing medical bills or having to miss work, the offer can be tempting. But when you accept the insurance company’s first offer, you end up leaving money on the table.
A Coconut Creek motorcycle accident lawyer can help. We can negotiate with the insurer to get you paid much more than they initially offered. We can also make sure you do not inadvertently say anything the insurance company can use to lower the value of your claim.
If You Were Not Wearing a Helmet, We Can Still Help
Florida law does not require motorcyclists to wear a helmet if they are 21 or older. That said, not wearing a helmet can present some challenges when seeking compensation from the responsible party and their insurer. They may try to argue that your lack of helmet contributed to your injuries, making you partly liable.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we can anticipate such a challenge as well as any others that the responsible party and their insurer may put forth. We will counter them aggressively, helping you win the fair compensation you deserve.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Fights for Full and Fair Compensation
Part of our job is to itemize all the damages you have incurred and come up with a total value for your claim. Once we have this number, we can pursue the responsible party and their insurer for the full amount.
Your motorcycle accident settlement could include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
