Orlando Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to be killed in a motor vehicle accident than are occupants of passenger vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Even a minor crash at low speed can result in serious injuries for a biker, while the driver of the car walks away uninjured.
In Florida, hundreds of motorcyclists lose their lives every year. Many more survive motorcycle accidents, but sustain serious injuries such brain injuries, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, or fractures. Those injured in a bike wreck may require months of hospitalization, numerous surgeries, on-going physical therapy, and vocational rehabilitation. The medical costs caused by motorcycle injuries can be staggering.

Proving Liability and Maximizing Damages in Motorcycle Accident Cases
Our motorcycle accident attorneys will file a lawsuit and aggressively pursue the maximum possible amount of financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, on-going care and rehabilitation, property damage, and more. If you were hit by a drunk driver, we will pursue punitive damages.
Whether you were on a Harley Davidson, Ninja, Kawasaki, Honda, or Suzuki, the injury lawyers at The Umansky Law Firm will work with skilled investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and other experts to help determine what happened and who is liable. We will consult with your treating doctors, qualified medical specialists, life-care planners, vocational rehabilitation consultants, economists, and other experts to demonstrate the extent of your serious injuries, the impact they have had on your life, and the cost of your ongoing care and future medical treatment.
We will identify all possible liable parties, including the other driver, the bike manufacturer, and property owners. Whether through a jury trial or settlement, we will work to obtain the financial compensation you deserve. If the other driver was uninsured or the amount of his insurance is inadequate to cover the full extent of your damages, our attorneys can assist you with your claims against your own auto insurance company for no-fault benefits and uninsured or uninsured motorist coverage.
Possible Causes of Motorcycle Accidents and Comparative Negligence
Many factors can contribute to a motorcycle accident: careless drivers who fail to see motorcyclists or fail to keep a safe distance behind a motorcycle; drivers who run red lights or fail to yield the right of way; defective tires, brakes, or other equipment on the bike; hazardous road conditions; and drunk driving are some of the possible causes. Florida is a comparative fault state. This means that if both the motorcyclist and the other driver are both partly to blame for the accident, the percentage of fault attributed to a bike driver can affect the liability and damages in a lawsuit. Our Florida attorneys are fully prepared to combat and overcome defenses of comparative negligence, assumption of risk, and contributory negligence.
