Motorcycle Accidents In Carrollwood
If you live in Carrollwood, then you know that there are few better places in our state to ride a motorcycle. Riding a motorcycle in Carrollwood makes sense for a lot of reasons. But even if you’re the safest motorcyclist on the road, you can’t count on other drivers to be as responsible as you are.
When a motorcycle and a car collide, it is almost always the rider of the motorcycle who is most severely injured. Motorcyclists have few protections–no seat belts, no airbags, and no vehicle frame to protect them. Common injuries that a motorcyclist may suffer as a result of a crash include:
- Head, neck, and brain injuries
- Facial and scalp injuries
- Internal injuries, including punctured organs
- Burn injuries and road burn injuries;
- Bone fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
Motorcycle accidents can be deadly, and occur far too often in our state. If you’ve been in a crash, our Carrollwood motorcycle accident lawyers at the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group can help.
Causes Of Motorcycle Crashes
Motorcycle accidents are almost always caused by the negligence of one of the parties involved. When you hire our motorcycle accident lawyers in Carrollwood, we will investigate your case and make a determination about fault and causation. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes include driver distraction or intoxication, failing to look before changing lanes, failing to double-check blind spots, speeding or driving at an unsafe speed for conditions, driving aggressively, and failing to follow posted traffic laws. In addition to drivers’ dangerous behaviors, car or motorcycle defects may also cause a crash–for example, defective brakes or steering devices could lead to a collision. Finally, road defects, such as potholes, missing or incorrect signage, and debris in the road can also lead to accidents.
Why You Need A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
If you are involved in a motorcycle crash, you are likely facing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, including medical expenses, property damage costs, lost wages, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress. The psychological, physical, and financial burden that is placed on you after a motorcycle accident can feel very oppressive. When you hire our law firm, we will work hard to build your case. This means gathering evidence to prove the fault of the responsible party and collecting documentation to prove the extent of injuries you’ve suffered. We’ll also work hard to negotiate your settlement and get you the damages award you deserve.
