Injured In A Motorcycle Accident? We Are Here To Help.
Riding a motorcycle is risky just about everywhere you go, but Florida is among the most dangerous states for bikers. Motorcycles account for only 3% of motor vehicles, yet fatal motorcycle accidents are responsible for 17% of traffic deaths statewide.
If you were seriously injured by a negligent driver or you lost a loved one to a fatal motorcycle crash, we at Felipe Law want to help you seek accountability and compensation. I am firm founder Jennifer Felipe, an attorney offering dedicated representation and personalized service to clients throughout South Florida. You can count on me and my team to give you and your case the attention and skill you deserve.
Most Motorcycle Crashes Are Preventable
Bikers are encouraged to wear helmets and ride defensively, and this is good advice. But it does almost nothing to address the hazards posed by drivers of four-wheeled vehicles. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Failure to keep a lookout for motorcyclists
- Passing too closely without leaving a buffer
- Turning left across oncoming traffic without checking for approaching riders
- Failure to yield right of way
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
Motorcycle crashes are typically preventable, but not by bikers themselves. As those with the most to lose, riders are already working to protect themselves – it is up to all other drivers to do the same.
We Won’t Let Insurers Blame You For The Accident
Unfortunately, motorcyclists must often combat negative bias when seeking compensation for their injuries. Motorcycles are viewed as inherently dangerous, and those who ride are likely to be stereotyped as reckless and unconcerned with their own safety.
Insurers may try to use this bias against you and blame you for the accident, literally adding insult to injury. We won’t let them get away with it. We put in the time and work necessary to fully investigate the crash, prove that the other driver was at fault and demonstrate that you were riding responsibly.
