It’s no secret that motorcyclists in Florida love
to feel the wind blowing in their hair and the glorious
freedom of the open road. In addition to the simple pleasures
of biking, motorcycle use has flourished in Florida’s
Tampa Bay area for several reasons:
Motorcycles are relatively inexpensive to buy
They use less fuel than other vehicles
Florida has pleasant weather all year long
Florida hosts several large biker events every year
Florida has more relaxed helmet laws than many other states
Meanwhile, roads in the Tampa Bay area are crowded with
millions of other vehicles from all over the country. Unfortunately,
many drivers do not understand how to maneuver around motorcycles.
Many motorcycle accidents have been unavoidable because
Drove too close to a motorcycle
Turned in front of a motorcycle
Did not see a motorcycle when changing lanes
One mistake from another driver can send a motorcycle spinning
out of control. There are many other factors in motorcycle
accidents as well, including road hazards, bike defects,
and dangerous driving conditions. Regardless of what caused
your accident, you deserve an experienced motorcycle accident
lawyer who knows how to defend your rights.
Being only a few inches from the asphalt, a motorcyclist
who is in an accident almost always sustains an injury and
must go to the hospital immediately. That is the first reason
you need a motorcycle accident lawyer quickly. After an
injury or death from a motorcycle accident, you must consider
who will pay for:
Decreased or lost earning abilities
Pain and suffering
Regrettably, you cannot always depend on insurance to pay
for all of these things, and that’s where a Tampa,
Florida motorcycle accident lawyer can help you the most.
According to a report prepared for the Florida Department
of Transportation in 2004, the average motorcycle crash
patient in a Florida trauma center—helmeted and non-helmeted—incurred
charges ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 for the hospital
bill alone. What if the insurance companies involved refuse
to cover medical expenses, plus the other damages from the
accident? Will you be in any condition to fight them alone?
You need a motorcycle accident attorney who can handle both
motorcycle injuries and motorcycle deaths. Once we take
your case at Clark and Martino, P.A., our personal injury
attorneys will passionately pursue justice for you.
