Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Statistical research indicates that the majority of all motorcycle accidents in Florida involve collisions with motor vehicles. Most commonly, these collisions are caused by negligent or inattentive motor vehicle drivers. Examples include:
- Motor vehicle swerving directly in front of a motorcycle
- Motor vehicle pulling out into the path of an oncoming motorcycle
- A motor vehicle driver’s failure to follow posted traffic laws or yield the proper right of way
- Motor vehicle driver’s failure to observe a motorcycle when changing lanes or passing other motor vehicles
Personal injury lawyers in Bradenton and Sarasota can help you understand your rights more fully. Since motorcycle riders and their passengers do not have the protection of doors, airbags, seat belts, and other safety features of motor vehicles, motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionately high number of catastrophic traffic accidents requiring extensive medical treatment. In fact, according to the Center For Urban Transportation Research, the median hospital charge in 2011 for motorcyclists admitted to a Florida hospital for treatment of traffic crash injuries was $56,966.00. However, unlike automobiles, motorcycle owners are not required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. As a result, many victims of motorcycle accidents are left to deal with significant medical bills, lost wages, and other economic losses.
Under Florida law, motorcycle accident victims may be entitled to recover their damages directly from the at-fault party. However, to do so, it is important to understand the nuances of automobile insurance and how your rights may vary if you are injured while riding a motorcycle. That is why it is important to select an experienced Lakewood Ranch motorcycle accident lawyer who understands your rights and is willing to fight for you.

We Are Thankful for Erjavec Law!
“My husband and I were injured in a car accident last year in Florida. We were on vacation and wound up in the hospital instead of on the beach! We decided to have Erjavec Law represent us. They were knowledgeable and took care of the things that we would not have been able to handle on our own. We are grateful that we used them, that we got to deal with the actual attorney instead of an assistant, and that we got a great settlement. We would recommend them to anyone!”
