Fort Lauderdale Single-Bike Accidents
South Florida roads can be especially dangerous for motorcyclists. Some roads are simply poorly designed or have such heavy traffic that they are hazardous. In other cases, poor road conditions due to inadequate maintenance can cause serious dangers for motorcyclists. Something as simple as potholes, for example, can cause a motorcyclist to spin out of control and crash into a construction barrier, tree, or another object.

All traffic accidents in Fort Lauderdale and Florida come with their unique challenges. A large part of the challenge, of course, is that a motorcyclist has few layers of protection. They do not have the airbags, seatbelts, and other safety devices that passenger cars enjoy. This means that in the event of a motor vehicle accident, motorcyclists may be flung from their motorcycle or crushed beneath it, causing serious and even life-threatening injuries. A single bike accident, however, comes with a number of additional challenges, including:
1) Potential insurance issues. In many cases, insurance companies may blame the motorcyclist for causing the crash and it may be more difficult for the motorcyclist to get fair compensation for their injuries.
2) Difficulty finding liable parties. In many cases, since the motorcyclist is blamed for the accident, authorities and insurance companies do not look further as to what has caused the accident, even though many of these accidents are caused by road design issues, other drivers, mechanical failure, and other preventable issues.
3) Difficulty getting help in time. If a motorcyclist is alone on the road during the time of the accident, there may be no one to help them to get emergency medical help quickly. This can make injuries worse and can make it harder to secure evidence in the caseDo You Need an Attorney?
For all of these reasons, it is especially important to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney if you have been injured in a single bike accident. You don't want to be blamed for an accident that was actually caused by poor road design, bad road maintenance, or another issue. In addition, you want help with the insurance process to ensure that you get the fair compensation that you deserve under your insurance policy.
