We Identify All Liable Parties and Pursue Them for Damages
One of our first priorities is to investigate your accident. We look at everyone involved. Even if it does not seem obvious that another driver violated a traffic law, they may be liable. If they are, we will collect evidence and pursue them for damages.
If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident, a number of parties might be liable. Most often, another driver is to blame in some way due to the following behaviors:
- Changing lanes without looking
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while distracted (e.g., texting)
- Not keeping a safe following distance
- Opening a car door into the path of a motorcyclist
Although another driver may be responsible for your crash, they might not be the only liable party. Here are some other parties we may consider in your case:
- The vehicle manufacturer if a defect in your motorcycle or another car contributed to the crash.
- The local municipality if the accident occurred because of unsafe road conditions or a faulty traffic control device.
- The employer of the driver, if they were working when the accident occurred.
No matter who is responsible, our goal is to get you the compensation you deserve. Once we have identified the liable parties, we gather evidence to build our case and pursue compensation.
Before You Accept a Settlement or Speak With the Insurance Company, Call Us
If your accident had an obvious at-fault party, their insurer might call to offer you a settlement. On this call, the insurance company might stress that they can get a check in the mail right away. It can sound tempting, especially if you are dealing with mounting medical bills and time away from work.
But when you accept a quick settlement, you may end up costing yourself money.
There are benefits to speaking to an accident attorney. One, you might inadvertently say something that may be used to reduce or deny you compensation. Two, there may be additional evidence that may work in your favor.
Before you accept an insurance settlement, make sure you have all the facts by discussing your case with a Miami Beach personal injury lawyer.
Not Wearing a Helmet? We May Still be Able to Recover Damages
A question we get frequently is, “What if I was not wearing a motorcycle helmet?” Many accident victims fear because they were not wearing a helmet, they are unable to pursue compensation for their injuries. This is not true in Florida. If you were not wearing a helmet when your motorcycle injury occurred, you might still be eligible for compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, and other costs.
According to Florida law, motorcyclists aged 21 and older are not required to wear a helmet, provided they have the appropriate insurance coverage. That said, the at-fault driver may use your lack of helmet as an argument against paying you damages. They might claim, for instance, that your injuries would not have been as substantial had you worn a helmet.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Miami Beach will anticipate such challenges and are prepared to counter such arguments.
Count on Anidjar & Levine to Help You Recover the Fair Compensation You Deserve
Part of our investigation involves valuing your motorcycle accident claim. That is, we calculate all the damages you have incurred and come up with a total. We can then pursue the responsible party and their insurer for the full amount.
Your motorcycle accident settlement could include the following damages:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost income and wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium (loss of family relationship due to injury)
