What was the cause of your motorcycle accident?
Determining the cause of a motorcycle accident can be challenging. That’s why it’s important that you have an attorney investigating your crash familiar with different causes of motorcycle accidents. We know why these accidents happen and exactly what to look for no matter how your crash happened. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted drivers
- Speeding drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Reckless drivers
- Car door motorcycle accidents (dooring)
Drivers must share the road with every other vehicle. When a driver fails to yield, they are disrespecting the motorcycle's right of way and putting them in danger. Poor judgment, distracted and reckless driving can easily cause a car to collide with a motorcycle.

After your motorcycle crash, make sure your case counts
One of the most frustrating aspects of motorcycle accidents involves motorcyclists being blamed for causing collisions with other vehicles – even when the motorcyclists did nothing wrong. Worst of all, some insurance companies believe these drivers. Why? Because some people are biased against motorcyclists and think they’re all reckless drivers.
We know the truth. In most cases, collisions involving motorcyclists are caused by other drivers. That’s why we’re proud to work with motorcyclists wrongly accused of causing collisions. As your attorney, we can help set the record straight and deal directly with the other driver’s insurance company. If they refuse to cooperate, we will not hesitate to take them to court on your behalf.
Drivers often don’t pay attention and end up causing serious collisions with motorcyclists. Whether it’s using a phone while driving, changing a radio station or eating while driving, distracted drivers are often to blame for many motorcycle crashes. Having an experienced, distracted driving motorcycle accident attorney on your side can help set the record straight. We can demand the money you deserve for your crash.
Speeding drivers wreak havoc on Tampa’s roads. This is especially true when it comes to accidents involving motorcyclists. Because other drivers are going so fast, they often don’t have time to stop or avoid crashing into a motorcycle. When this happens, motorcyclists often sustain very serious injuries. Our law firm can investigate your speeding motorcycle accident and help hold the driver who cause your crash accountable for his or her actions.
Drivers under the influence of alcohol have slower reaction times, have trouble staying in their lane and sometimes even fall asleep at the wheel. And when they do, motorcyclists sometimes are the ones who suffer the most. If a drunk driver crashed into your motorcycle, we can be your voice for justice after your drunk driving motorcycle accident. Don’t simply assume the police will take care of everything. Their job is to investigate your accident, not make sure you’re fairly compensated for your crash.
