Homestead Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists rely on good visibility in order to see the road around them. Because motorcycles are smaller vehicles, motorcyclists need to be more alert to any possible issues – such as debris on the road or poor road conditions – which can cause a motorcycle accident even if these same conditions would not affect car. Limited visibility may be inconvenient to the driver of a passenger vehicle, but it can be deadly for motorcyclists.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Homestead or anywhere in South Florida and you think that someone's recklessness has affected your visibility or has in some way led to your injuries, contact Flaxman Law Group to review your situation. If someone's negligence did lead to your injuries or accident, you may have a legal claim and you may be eligible to seek compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injuries.What Leads to Visibility Issues?
There are many things that can affect a motorcyclist’s visibility and can lead to a motorcycle accident:
- Lack of goggles, leading to dust in the eyes and poor visibility
- Manufacturing defects of goggles or helmets, causing poor vision
- Manufacturing defects related to the mirrors on the motorcycle or other motorcycle components
- Poor road design, leading to obstruction of visibility on turns and in other areas
- Road work that is poorly set up, leading to obstructions
If your visibility problems have been caused by someone's recklessness or negligence, you may have a personal injury claim in Homestead or your community. In these cases, it is important to seek compensation and legal advice. Compensation can help you pay for the many expenses that you will be facing after your accident, and pursuing a legal claim also ensures that accountable parties are pushed to make specific changes that could result in safer roadways for everyone.Serious Injuries Often Result From Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries in a collision because they are so vulnerable. Because there is so little between you and the road, being struck by a larger vehicle often leads to catastrophic injuries as well as being thrown from your motorcycle. A crash on your bike can lead to:
- Head injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Back injuries
- Internal injuries
- Severe blood loss
- Spinal cord trauma
- Facial injuries (including eye and dental injuries)
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you will want to get medical attention right away, even if you have no symptoms. Some injuries do not present symptoms right away but can still be dangerous. Some fatal head injuries, for example, leave the victim fee feeling okay immediately after the impact only to result in catastrophic injury within hours. Some soft tissue injuries may not hurt immediately as well. Getting immediate medical help is vital and could save your life, especially if you have sustained head trauma.
