We Can Build a Strong Case Showing Fault and Liability for Your West Palm Beach Motorcycle Accident
Our team understands the most common causes of motorcycle accidents and can identify the liable party in an accident. When necessary, we work with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to build a case and pursue compensation for you. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Failure to yield when making a turn;
- Improper lane changes;
- Rear-end collisions;
- Alcohol-involved accidents;
- Driving while tired or drowsy;
- Distracted driving; or
- Speeding or other reckless driving
In some cases, young and inexperienced motorcyclists or others may contribute to their own accidents or injuries. We can counter this accusation and mitigate the damage done by any evidence presented, in many cases.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries Can Be Difficult to Value, But We Can Help
Motorcycles offer little protection for motorcyclists or their passengers. Even when wearing a helmet and protective gear, serious and catastrophic injuries occur. This can include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Head or facial injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Burns and scarring
- Other significant injuries
Our West Palm Beach motorcycle accident lawyers work with medical experts to ensure we understand the cost of your ongoing and future care needs and the extent of your pain and suffering. We will use all evidence possible to confirm the injuries you suffered and the care you currently need and will need in the future. We can handle any type of motorcycle accident injury case, in addition to fatal motorcycle accident cases.

Florida’s Statute of Limitations Limits How Long We Have to Take Legal Action
Florida state law gives us only four years from the date of the accident to take legal action against the at-fault driver in your West Palm Beach motorcycle accident. If we miss this deadline, you could lose the right to pursue compensation. For this reason, it is important to get started as soon as possible.
