At Fernandez Law Group our attorneys have decades of experience handling motorcycle accident claims involving injury and in some cases, even death. We understand how to work through the difficulties some victims may face in recovering compensation. We have a strong history of of personal injury litigation experience in all types of motorcycle crashes and work diligently to help protect the rights of motorcyclists across Florida.

As of January 2015, there were 593,321 registered motorcycles in Florida, which accounts for 3.1% of Florida's motoring public. And recent data from both Ride Smart Florida and The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles suggests that motorcycle crashes are on the rise with the number of crashes and injuries nearly doubling during the past decade alone. The average cost of medical care for a motorcycle accident in Florida is nearly $60,000 and nearly 50% of these accidents are not covered by commercial insurance! Riders are 5 times more likely to suffer an injury or death than those who crash in other types of motor vehicles. Motorcycle fatalities have also been increasing in recent years throughout the state.

Many of those crashes are due to the inattentiveness of car and truck drivers and their failure to properly recognize or yield to a motorcyclists' rights on the road. Although their size and having only one headlight reduces the visibility of a motorcycle, often times negligent conduct of other drivers causes these accidents to occur. Sudden lane changes, lack of signaling, and pulling out of intersections in front of bikers cause the majority of these incidents. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are aggressive and experienced in protecting the legal rights motorcycle and scooter riders share with other motorists. We work hard to dismiss the prejudice and negative attitudes many judges and juries are predisposed to having against motorcyclists and work tirelessly to obtain the compensation our clients are entitled to.

If you have suffered a severe or disabling injury as the result of a motorcycle crash, you should contact an experienced motorcycle accident injury lawyer immediately following any accident. The attorneys at Fernandez Law Group have the skills needed as well as proven results to help ensure you are properly compensated for your losses.

Recent Motorcycle Accident Settlements:

• Products Liability/Manufacturer: Motorcycle Malfunction - $2.4 million

Our client was injured when a motorcycle malfunctioned and caused a single-vehicle accident. After years of investigation, we located similar accidents and showed that the manufacturer had knowledge of prior issues with motorcycles sold throughout the United States and Europe. Our client sustained significant injuries to his knee, requiring multiple surgeries and prohibiting him from ever returning to work.

• Insurance Coverage Issue: Motorcycle Accident - $1.5 million

Client's husband was involved in a motorcycle accident when a vehicle ran a red light, striking another vehicle and a stop sign. The stop sign ultimately struck our client's husband in the head, and he passed away. It was discovered that the individual who caused the accident did not have any car insurance. At the time of the accident, our client's husband was test driving a motorcycle for his business. The business maintained an insurance policy, which provided insurance coverage for the business but not for accidents involving uninsured motor vehicles. After investigating the claim, it was discovered that the insurance company failed to offer the proper insurance coverage as required by Florida law. Such insurance would have entitled the family to a million-dollar benefit. During litigation, the Federal Court Judge issued an order confirming that the insurance company should have provided insurance coverage in the amount of $1 million. After the court's ruling, a settlement was entered in excess of the insurance policy to avoid further litigation.

Why is it important to consult a personal injury attorney immediately following a motorcycle accident?

Motorcycle underneath car after crashIf you or a loved one were involved in a motorcycle accident, waiting to call an attorney will never help your case. In fact, it could seriously impair your ability to prevail in a lawsuit. As soon as you contact us, we start our investigation of your case and begin preserving and analyzing critical evidence. As time passes, accident scenes change, eye-witness accounts waver, vehicles are salvaged, tire marks disappear, "black box" and electronically stored data may be erased. Many vehicles are salvaged after being deemed a "total loss" after serious collisions, and other important evidence might become difficult to obtain.

When you contact our law firm right away, we are been able to obtain and store the vehicles involved in those crashes so that forensic engineers can photograph, measure, and analyze them. Immediately contacting an attorney gives your law firm the ability to have their investigators visit accident scenes, inspect vehicular crush damage, tire marks, tread depth, and paint transfers – all of which can be extremely beneficial.

There are no costs or fees unless we obtain a settlement for you.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, do not try to handle a claim on your own or risk using an inexperienced lawyer. Not all motorcycle accident attorneys have our commitment to achieving full justice for their clients, nor do they have our trial experience and proven skills.
