Motorcycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries and deaths to motorcyclists. Injuries sustained in these accidents may include paralysis, limb loss, brain and organ damage, and shattered or fractured bones. When a motorcycle accident was caused by a defect in one of the vehicles involved or by driver negligence, the injured motorcyclist or deceased motorcyclist’s family may be entitled to compensation through legal action–and we have the most experience in South Florida to fight for you.

In general, road accidents are one of the leading cause of fatal injuries in the United States. Specifically, motorcycle accidents are among the most dangerous of all road-related injuries sustained by Americans every day, in large part because of the sudden damage to the brain caused by a blow to the skull, which is not protected by a vehicle when it comes in contact with the road.

Standard coverage is exactly what it sounds like–standard, basic coverage. However, it doesn't protect the rider or any accident victims from everything, and for those who want peace of mind, it may be wise to add further coverage to any motorcycle you plan to ride.

Even with a properly insured rider and motorcycle, riders who cannot handle a motorcycle properly pose a serious and life-threatening risk not only to themselves, but to other motorists on the road. An inexperienced rider that causes an accident would be liable for any injuries sustained, as well as the damage they cause to those with whom they share the road. After a motorcycle-related accident it's important to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney immediately, as these injuries can cause prolonged pain, traumatic brain injury, and lost wages.
