Motorcycle Personal Injury Lawyer

Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. Handles Motorcycle Accident Injuries in Coral Springs

When a car and a motorcycle collide, the motorcyclist is at an immediate disadvantage due to the lack of protection provided by their bike. Unfortunately, it is incredibly easy for the resultant injuries to be severe or even catastrophic in nature. The direct impacts suffered can cause brain damage, spinal cord injury and paralysis, and loss of limbs, among other injuries and even death. Motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer from catastrophic injuries as they are much more exposed than drivers and occupants of other vehicles.

Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Lane Splitting Accidents

Lane-sharing, or lane splitting, as it is also commonly called, is not allowed in Florida and the law expressly states that as a motorcyclist, you are entitled to full use of the lane. Unfortunately, when this right is violated by drivers, you are at risk of serious injury or even death. The chances of a collision are greatly increased due to the closer proximity of vehicles. You may suddenly have to move across your lane to avoid gravel or a pothole and if a car moves into your lane at the same time, the results can be catastrophic. Even without a direct impact with another vehicle, the buffeted wind caused by a car moving in too closely can cause you to lose control of your motorcycle.

Left-Hand Turn Accidents

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident because a driver made a dangerous left-hand turn into your path, contact a car accident lawyer immediately. Your legal counsel can help you pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. If you have tragically lost a loved one in such a circumstance, your attorney can help you with a wrongful death claim in order to help you care for your family following your loss.

Motorcycle Injuries Statistics

According to the latest annual National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, over 5,000 motorcyclists lost their lives in traffic accidents and 96,000 were injured. The NHTSA also reports that: “Per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists are about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash.” In the event that you were injured in a motorcycle accident or suffered the loss of a family member, an experienced Coral Springs motorcycle accident lawyer should be retained to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
