Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

What To Do After a Motorcycle Accident?

Drivers on the roadways do not typically look for motorcycles when operating their motor vehicles. With so many people using their phones when they drive, negligent drivers cause more distracted driving accidents than ever before. This means that there is a higher likelihood for motorcyclists to suffer harm in an accident than those in cars or trucks. Collisions with these vehicles can result in serious and life-changing injuries. If you were injured or a loved one has wrongfully died in a motorcycle accident, trust the Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident attorneys at the Law Office of John D. Ameen, P.A. with your case.

We Aggressively Pursue Compensation

After a motorcycle accident, you have four years from the date of the accident to bring a lawsuit against a negligent driver. Florida allocates compensation based on the "pure comparative cost rule," meaning that you can still recover compensation if you were partly at fault for the accident. However, whatever percentage of responsibility for the accident you are determined to have will be deducted from your total damages. Having attorneys on your side who can aggressively pursue the maximum financial award can make a difference in the outcome of your case. At the Law Office of John D. Ameen, P.A., we represent individuals injured in motorcycle accidents involving:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Uninsured drivers (UM Claims)
  • Trucking companies or commercial vehicles
  • Other negligent persons

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents result in painful injuries, no matter what type of accident you are involved in. Without the thick metal frame and protections afforded to other vehicles, motorcyclists are directly exposed to the impact of the crash. Types of injuries we often see from motorcycle accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Head injuries
  • Road rash
  • Burns

Our legal team is dedicated to maximizing your compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, property damage, and more. An accident impedes your ability to work, which increases the stress associated with medical treatment, rehabilitation, and recovering from any injuries. We believe that all of these factors increase the amount the injured is entitled to under the law.
