Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Protecting the legal rights of people who have been injured in motorcycle accidents in and around Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Miami and the surrounding areas regularly attract motorcycle enthusiasts. Our famously warm climate allows motorcyclists to ride year-round in most parts of the state, and Florida’s miles of coastal highways make for some particularly picturesque rides. While motorcycling is undoubtedly fun for many people as well as an efficient way to get from place to place, it also exposes riders to an inherent risk of serious injury. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles,1 there were 7,809 motorcyclists injured in the state in 2013 alone. Motorcycle accidents can leave victims with extremely serious injuries, tremendous medical expenses, and long-term medical problems. In some cases, victims may even develop disabilities that prevent them from working or even being able to live independently. Fortunately, in many cases, victims can recover significant compensation for their injuries and other losses by filing a Florida personal injury2 claim. As a result, people who have been injured in a motorcycle accident should retain legal counsel as soon as possible. In many instances, the assistance of an attorney can help victims obtain significantly more compensation than they would have been able to obtain on their own.
