Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Fort Lauderdale you are about to enter the confusing and frustrating world of comparative negligence in your effort to recoup compensation for your injuries. Motorcycles are not covered by the state’s no-fault insurance. As the driver of a motorcycle you have to seek compensation from the party that caused the accident.
You need to speak to a Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident lawyer and you need to speak to him or her now!
It’s You Against the Insurance Company
In the state of Florida all cars (vehicles with 4 or more wheels) are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 property damage liability insurance as well as $10,000 Personal Injury Protection. If a person is injured while in his car, he or she can make a claim against their PIP coverage.
You were injured on a 2-wheel vehicle and unless you purchased special coverage, you have no insurance protection. And it gets trickier from there.
You need to contact the professional personal injury lawyers at Martin, Lister & Alvarez. We are one of the most respected and experienced personal injury law firms in Fort Lauderdale. We have dealt with nearly every insurance company licensed to do business in Florida and have a proven track record in successfully representing our clients and achieving fair and just settlements or verdicts.
We understand the pain and frustration that you are going through right now. One minute you are simply cruising on your bike and the next you’re on the ground and your motorcycle is trashed. What comes next can be just as painful mentally as the physical injuries. There is a bias against motorcycle riders held by both the police and insurance companies despite the evidence that most bike/car accidents are caused by the driver of the car.
You are going to need a strong legal team to level the playing field if you want to be successful in pursuing compensation. Don’t wait. The longer you put off consulting with a personal injury attorney the more difficult it is to collect the evidence needed in a comparative negligence lawsuit.
