Get the Compensation You Deserve for Motorcycle Injuries

The State of Florida has the highest rate of motorcycle accidents in the country, possibly due to the year around temperate climate, the beautiful roads and scenery, the large senior population, and the tourism industry, bringing in an influx of persons annually that are unfamiliar with our roads. Common injuries causing significant bodily damage or death are head and neck injuries causing brain damage, road rash burns, fractures, and disfigurement. The Ogle Law firm is dedicated to helping victims of motorcycle accidents in the state of Florida recover compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

There are many factors that contribute to a fatal or near fatal motorcycle accident, including:

  • Lack of safety gear, such as motorcyclists without helmets, face shields, or glasses, boots, and gloves.

  • Lack of protection from the motorcycle, even when using safety gear.

  • Failure of motorists to detect motorcycles due to the glare of the sun, an obstructed view by another vehicle, or a blind spot.

  • Failure to see a motorcyclist’s turn signal.

  • Unsafe weather conditions and the instability of a motorcycle on wet roads.

  • Driver’s error in judgment, or reckless driving.

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

  • Lack of maintenance of the motorcycle or surrounding vehicles.

  • Distracted driving.

A personal injury lawsuit for a motorcycle accident is a claim of negligence and the plaintiff must prove that the injuries and property damage sustained occurred through the carelessness of another. Compensatory monetary and non-monetary damages may include medical expenses, loss of current and future income, property damage, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. Punitive damages can be awarded if the defendant was found to have reckless or malicious behavior, causing the accident. A fatal motorcycle accident can change the course of a family’s life. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal motorcycle crash through the negligence or misconduct of another, a wrongful death claim can be filed by a family member or the administrator of an estate, on behalf of the victim. Additional expenses can be added to the claim, including funeral costs, loss of companionship, diminished inheritance for the heirs of an estate, and more.
