Lehigh Acres Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
There are almost no scenarios in which a motorcyclist gets hit by a car or truck and walks away unscathed. Whether your motorcycle crash occurred at high speed, you made contact with the other vehicle, or you were thrown clear, the injuries and damages you sustained should be compensated fairly. The Lehigh Acres motorcycle accident lawyer at Cardinal Law, P.A. will help you prove fault, establish a comprehensive list of your damages, file a personal injury claim, file a lawsuit if negotiations are unsuccessful, and litigate the lawsuit in court if that is what it takes to reach a desirable outcome for you and your family.
Florida is One of the Most Dangerous States to Ride
Tragically, the Sunshine State is not all that bright and sunny for those on two wheels. While we enjoy spectacular riding weather virtually every week of the year, here in Florida motorcycle crashes, and serious injuries and deaths, have been on the rise for years. The same is not quite as glaringly obvious for car drivers; as driving behaviors have deteriorated (speeding, aggressive driving, road rage, and distracted driving are at all-time highs), vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists have borne the brunt of the carnage. This is because, while drivers are protected in a cocoon of metal and airbags, motorcyclists have almost no protection in a crash.
No Motorcyclist is Invisible
The most common guilty driver excuse is to claim that the motorcyclist “came out of nowhere,” or “the sun was in my eyes,” or simply “I didn’t see them.” The first scenario is impossible and the second two still do not excuse the driver’s carelessness. Motorcyclists may be harder to see than a semi-truck, but they are by no means hard to see or invisible. It is every driver’s duty of care to always be scanning the road ahead and to the sides, give all road users plenty of space, to obey the speed limit, and to obey all other traffic laws. The real reason you were injured while riding your motorcycle is that the driver who caused your crash was not obeying the rules of the road, not that you “came out of nowhere.”
