Dania Beach sees many motorcycle enthusiasts on the road due to the beautiful and scenic views. But a quaint motorcycle ride can quickly turn to tragedy when you come into contact with hazardous road conditions and careless drivers. You can be the most experienced rider and still get into an accident by no fault of your own. Injuries are often catastrophic since motorcycles do not offer much protection. With this comes costly medical bills and you need compensation to handle these.

Motorcycles do not offer much protection even if the rider is wearing protective gear they will feel the brunt of the impact. Riders will face injuries during impact and if they are thrown from the motorcycle they can face road burn and other injuries. Riders commonly suffer fractured bones, torn ligaments, and the likelihood of brachial-plexus injury. Some injuries will require surgery and extensive recovery periods. This also adds on lost wages from being unable to work because you are recovering from your injuries. Our Dania Beach motorcycle accident attorneys will work to obtain full compensation for your injuries and lost wages so you can focus on your medical recovery.
Motorcycle lay down accidents are particularly tricky because the accident may not involve a collision with another motor vehicle. Ricers will sometimes have to take evasive measures to avoid collisions and cause further damage or injury. Bikers have a responsibility to use reasonable care and caution when considering evasive measures. A Dania Beach motorcycle accident attorney will work to prove as such for a motorcycle lay down accident. The biggest hurdle will be identifying the liable party in the accident. Having uninsured motorists coverage is important when our investigators are unable to find witnesses or find traffic-camera footage (we know where to look and how to obtain this footage) to help identify the offending driver who caused the motorcycle wreck.

Once you turn 21 you can avoid wearing the helmet if you carry minimum $10,000.00 motorcycle insurance coverage. However, just because the law doesn’t require you to wear a helmet after turning 21, doesn’t mean you should avoid wearing one. Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that you can be held responsible for the portion of your injuries caused by your own negligence. Many motorcycles can easily go faster than 150 miles per hour, which means the rider is travelling 220 feet per second! At these high speeds, reacting timely is difficult. Motorcycles are stereotyped to be fast and reckless drivers, failing to wear a helmet will likely be used against you. Ride carefully, use a helmet and – in our opinion – you should use an inflatable protective vest such as RevZilla.
