Homestead Single-Bike Accidents
In most motorcycle accidents in Homestead and other communities, at least two vehicles are involved. A truck or car may strike a motorcyclist, for example, or another type of vehicle may crash into a motorcycle. In these cases, there is usually an at-fault driver, and that driver’s insurance company will help pay for injuries to the motorcyclist and other victims.
What happens when there is only one motorcycle involved in an accident, however? Many people assume that single bike accidents do not result in insurance claims and that there is little recourse for the victim. This is not always the case. Flaxman Law Group attorneys have worked on many single bike accident cases and have been able to negotiate with insurance carriers for fair compensation. In some of these cases, there have also been legal claims possible on behalf of the victims so that they have been able to enjoy compensation to pay for medical bills and other expenses. Contact Flaxman Law Group today for a free consultation to see whether these options are available in your circumstances.What Options You Have in a Single Bicycle Accidents?
There may be multiple liable parties in this type of single vehicle accident:
- The manufacturer of the motorcycle, if a product defect caused the motorcycle to perform incorrectly, leading to an accident
- The municipality or area where the accident occurred, if road design or road maintenance was an issue
- Another driver, if the driver's actions led the motorcyclist to swerve to avoid an accident and this led to the single bike accident
In some cases, single bicycle accidents do have liable parties that can be pursued a legal claim. In other cases, however, the best option is to pursue insurance money from the motorcyclist’s own insurance policy.Single Bike Accidents Still Lead to Serious Injuries
Injuries resulting from single motorcycle accidents in Homestead and other communities can still result in catastrophic and expensive injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord trauma
Even if you are not struck by another vehicle, in a single bike crash you may still go into a slide, get pinned under your bike, or get thrown from your motorcycle. You simply have little protection in a collision or in the event that you lose control of your bike. All of this can result in devastating and even fatal injuries.Get Legal Help to Pursue Fair Compensation
