Boca Raton Rear-End Collision Lawyer for Motorcycle Accidents
When you are riding a motorcycle, rear-end collisions can be almost impossible to avoid. If a careless or distracted driver comes up behind you when you are sitting still or have nowhere to go, you may simply be left to face the consequences of the driver’s negligence. In this situation, it is extremely important to hire an experienced Boca Raton rear-end collision lawyer to represent you.
Motorcycle accidents involving rear-end collisions often leave riders with devastating injuries. The costs of these injuries can add up quickly, and injured riders can quickly find themselves facing substantial losses. The injuries from these accidents often leave riders with chronic pain, permanent disabilities and other long-term problems as well—and these are all losses that an experienced lawyer may be able to help you recover.
Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions Involving Motorcycles
Recovering your losses after a rear-end motorcycle accident starts with determining the cause of the collision. Once you engage our firm to represent you, we can conduct a comprehensive investigation focused on determining—and proving—why the accident happened. With proof in hand, we can then file all available claims on your behalf and fight to recover maximum compensation.
Some of the most common causes of rear-end collisions involving motorcycles include:
- Aggressive driving (i.e., speeding or tailgating)
- Negligent driving (i.e., distracted, drunk or fatigued driving)
- Vehicle defects and maintenance issues (i.e., brake failures and tire failures)
Since motorcycles are much smaller than cars, trucks and SUVs, drivers will often overlook motorcycles when approaching an intersection or traffic jam. In some cases, they simply may not see a motorcycle until it is too late (if they see the motorcycle at all). However, this is not an excuse for causing an accident. In rear-end motorcycle accidents, the driver (or the driver’s vehicle) is almost always to blame, and you should speak with a lawyer regardless of the circumstances involved in your collision.
Your Rights As a Motorcycle Rider Injured in a Rear-End Collision
If you have been rear-ended while riding your motorcycle in South Florida, what are your legal rights? As an injured rider, your legal rights include:
1. The Right to Know What Happened
You have the right to know why you got rear-ended on your motorcycle. Once you know why the accident happened, then you can take appropriate legal action.
2. The Right to Be Treated Fairly
Taking legal action will most likely involve filing an insurance claim, and when you file an insurance claim, you have the right to be treated fairly. Unfortunately, the insurance companies may still try to take advantage of you.
3. The Right to Just Compensation
If you were injured due to circumstances beyond your control, you have the right to just compensation. This includes compensation not only for your medical expenses and repair bills but for your lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses as well.
