Broward County Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Protecting Motorcyclists' Rights in Hollywood, FL

Motorcyclists face unique challenges on the road, often bearing the brunt of severe accidents and enduring more significant injuries compared to automobile users. At Kaplan Law Group, P.A., we understand the distinct vulnerabilities motorcyclists face, and we are dedicated to providing unwavering legal support to riders in Broward County. As your dedicated motorcycle accident attorney in Hollywood, FL, we're committed to fighting for the rights and compensation of those who've been injured in motorcycle accidents.

Why Motorcyclists Are More Vulnerable

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than automobile users due to the lack of physical protection between them and the road. Contributing factors include:

  • Limited Protection: Unlike car occupants, motorcyclists lack the protective enclosure of a vehicle, making them more susceptible to injuries upon impact.
  • Size and Visibility: Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars, increasing the likelihood of collisions, especially when other drivers fail to notice them.
  • Stability Challenges: Motorcycles require greater skill and balance to operate. Even minor obstacles or road hazards can lead to accidents, causing riders to lose control.
  • Exposure to Elements: Motorcyclists are directly exposed to the elements, amplifying the impact of weather conditions on their safety.

These factors often lead to severe injuries or even fatalities in case of a collision.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries, including:

  • Road Rash: Abrasions and lacerations caused by the friction between the rider's skin and the road surface.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: The force of impact can lead to fractures or breaks in the rider's bones, commonly affecting limbs and extremities.
  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur if the rider's head makes contact with the ground or another object.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can result in partial or complete paralysis, impacting the rider's mobility.

  • Burns: Motorcyclists can suffer burns from hot motorcycle parts during a crash or from the friction of sliding across pavement. Severe burns may require skin grafting and can lead to significant scarring.
  • Loss of Limbs: In high-impact accidents, riders may suffer from traumatic amputations. Losing a limb has significant life-altering consequences, including the need for prosthetics and long-term physical therapy.
  • Internal Injuries: These occur when the impact of the crash causes internal damage to organs, blood vessels, or the torso. Internal injuries can be life-threatening and often require immediate medical attention.

These injuries can lead to long-term disability, significantly altering a person's life. They often require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries, physical therapy, and ongoing care. Additionally, the financial burden from medical bills and lost wages can be overwhelming. This is why it's crucial for victims to seek legal help to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

Common Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcycle accidents can occur in various scenarios, including:

  • Left-Turn Collisions: Other drivers fail to yield to oncoming motorcycles during left turns.
  • Lane-Changing Accidents: Motorcycles can be easily overlooked when drivers change lanes.
  • Rear-End Collisions: Being rear-ended by a distracted or inattentive driver.
  • Intersection Crashes: Collisions at intersections, often caused by drivers failing to obey traffic signals.

Sadly, many of these accidents are preventable and are often the result of negligence by other drivers.

Why Motorcyclists Need an Attorney

Navigating the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you understand your rights, assess the value of your claim, gather evidence, and if necessary, represent you in court. Motorcyclists require skilled legal representation for several reasons:

  • Complexity of Motorcycle Laws: Navigating the specific laws and regulations surrounding motorcycle accidents demands expertise in the field.

  • Proving Liability: Establishing liability in motorcycle accidents often requires in-depth investigation and legal acumen.

  • Negotiating with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies may attempt to minimize payouts; an attorney can negotiate on behalf of the motorcyclist to secure fair compensation.

  • Maximizing Compensation: Attorneys can help motorcyclists seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
