Boca Raton Parking Lot Lawyer for Injured Motorcycle Riders
Parking lots can be dangerous places for motorcycle riders. Drivers are typically in a rush to either find a parking spot or get home, and they aren’t as careful as they should be. They back up without looking, speed around corners, and make other poor decisions that put riders in harm’s way. If you’ve been injured by a careless or reckless driver, a Boca Raton parking lot lawyer at The Grife Law Firm can help.
While parking lot accidents happen at relatively low speeds, this does not mean that they are “minor” accidents. Any time you go down on your motorcycle, you are at risk of suffering serious injuries. Soft tissue injuries, nerve damage, broken bones, road rash and concussions are all very real concerns—and they can all lead to expensive medical bills and a prolonged recovery.
Common Causes of Parking Lot Accidents Involving Motorcycles
Parking lot accidents involving motorcycles can result from various causes. While driver negligence is a factor in many of these motorcycle accidents, issues with the parking lot itself can contribute to causing accidents as well. With this in mind, some of the most common causes of motorcycle parking lot accidents include:
- Careless driving (i.e., backing out of a parking space without looking for motorcycles)
- Distracted driving (i.e., talking on the phone or texting instead of paying attention)
- Reckless driving (i.e., speeding around blind corners in parking lots)
- Parking lot blind spots (i.e., corners obscured by bushes or signage)
- Other parking lot hazards (i.e., inadequate markings, unmarked curbs and parking blocks, and potholes)
While these can all justify claims for liability, they are also just examples of the potential grounds for filing a claim after a parking lot accident. If you were injured while riding your motorcycle in a South Florida parking lot under any circumstances, you should speak with a Boca Raton parking lot lawyer about your legal rights.
Liability and Insurance Coverage in Motorcycle Parking Lot Accident Cases
When you suffer serious injuries in a motorcycle parking lot accident, filing a claim starts with identifying the party that is liable for your injuries. Typically, this will be either (i) a negligent driver, (ii) the parking lot’s owner, or (iii) a business that leases the parking lot. When you engage our firm to represent you, we will investigate promptly to determine who (or what company) is liable for your crash.
In most cases, recovering just compensation for a parking lot accident involves filing an insurance claim. Depending on the circumstances, the at-fault driver’s insurance policy, your motorcycle insurance policy, and/or the parking lot owner’s or business’s insurance policy may apply. We can file all available claims on your behalf, and we can use our experience to seek the maximum compensation available.
