If riding a motorcycle is more a way of life than a mode of transportation for you, then you are in good company. For many people, the thrill of cruising the open road on a motorcycle is one of life's greatest joys. This is particularly true in South Florida, where you can enjoy beautiful rides along the beach. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle is also much more dangerous than driving a car.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be facing serious financial hardships associated with costly medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation, and lost wages from missed work while you recover. But you don't have to go through this difficult time alone. Michael K. Grife will focus all of his energy on recovering the compensation you deserve so that you can focus your energy on recovering from your injuries.

Due to the lack of protection provided by a motorcycle, the injuries sustained by riders are often much more severe than injuries suffered in other types of motor vehicle accidents. It is common to develop a catastrophic injury that may be life altering or require long term care.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
Mr. Grife understands the serious nature of these injuries. He can help you secure the important medical treatments you need, and he will evaluate every aspect of your injury in order to maximize your compensation.Proving Negligence in Motorcycle Accident Cases
Motorcycle accidents are often more complex than other motor vehicle accident claims. In many instances, there is no collision with another vehicle, even though an aggressive driver who failed to respect your right of way caused you to swerve to avoid an accident. These "near misses" caused by another driver's negligence can still result in a devastating crash on your motorcycle. This can make proving negligence very challenging.
Mr. Grife works with a team of accident reconstruction experts and biomechanical engineers who will investigate your case to determine the cause of your accident. Some of the most common negligent actions resulting in a motorcycle accident may include:
- Failing to yield the right of way to a motorcycle
- Cutting in front of a motorcycle
- Failing to check for a motorcycle before making a lane change
- Entering an intersection into the path of a motorcycle
With Mr. Grife's help, you can hold the negligent driver responsible for these actions and recover the compensation you deserve.
