Coral Gables Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents
Limited visibility motorcycle accidents in Coral Gables and Florida occur for one of two reasons: because a motorcyclist was not able to see a hazard in time to avoid it or because another motorist was unable to see a motorcyclist on the road and therefore crashed into the bike. In both these cases, a claim may be possible if negligence or recklessness caused the accident and the injuries.

Limited visibility motorcycle accidents can be caused by:
- Overgrown trees or vegetation
- Malfunctioning motorcycle headlights or other motorcycle parts
- Bad weather
- Poor streetlights
- Helmet defects
- Distracted, fatigued, or drunk drivers
- Motorists not checking blind spots
- Poor road design
Anything that prevents a motorcyclist from having a clear view of the road around them or anything that prevents a motorist from seeing a motorcycle on the road has the potential to cause a collision.Preventing Motorcycle Crashes in Florida
There are many ways that motorcyclists can help prevent visibility-related motorcycle collisions:
- Use an oscillating headlamp
- Wear reflective and bright clothing, especially at night
- Make eye contact with drivers around you to ensure that they can see you
- Ensure that your headlights are working correctly
- Buy a motorcycle in a bright color or use reflective tape to make it more visible
Of course, even if you do everything right, other drivers may not see you on the road or you may encounter poor road design or other issues that lead to visibility accidents. In these situations, it is your right to seek answers and to pursue compensation through a legal claim if your injuries were caused by negligence.
If you have been injured seriously and cannot return to work, especially, it is very important to seek maximum compensation and to get legal advice about your situation.
