Tallahassee Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcycles are treated differently in court
Motorcycle accidents often result in very severe injuries. They are also often the result of a negligent act that the motorcycle driver could not have anticipated or avoided. To make an effective and compelling case for injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident, it’s important to know the different ways motorcycles are treated by the law and on the road.
At Barrett, Fasig & Brooks, we understand these differences. We know that because roads were built with cars in mind, motorcyclists are often at a disadvantage. We also know that the slightest inattentiveness or negligence by other drivers can cause a motorcyclist to suffer severe injuries.
Our experience allows us to indicate clearly the negligent acts of other drivers while also offering a compelling portrayal of the difficulties our cyclist clients encounter on the road.
Fighting from your corner
Our experience has taught us to make strong and compelling cases in favor of our motorcyclist clients. A motorcyclist who’s been injured because of someone else’s negligence should get the full and just compensation they deserve. Our talented Tallahassee accident lawyers use proven strategies to recover the best possible compensation for your injuries. Our strategies include:
- Recognizing that Florida treats motorcycle accident injuries differently — Florida law doesn’t require injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident to be proven to be permanent for the victim to receive compensation. While we always focus on presenting an accurate portrayal of a client’s injuries, we use this difference as an opportunity to place greater emphasis on the negligence of the other party.
- Presenting a motorcyclist’s perspective — We know how difficult it is to ride a motorcycle in fast-moving traffic or along winding roads with short sight ranges. We can offer a jury a perspective from inside the helmet, allowing them to judge the circumstances of a case more accurately.
- Providing accurate accident reconstructions — We’ll build accurate accident reconstructions to help prove the other driver’s negligence and show that our client had little or no opportunity to avoid the accident.
