Miami Beach Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents

Many visibility motorcycle accidents in Miami Beach and Florida are entirely preventable. While in some cases weather or another issue that is outside of our control causes these crashes, in many cases negligence has a role to play in these devastating accidents. In many cases, quality helmets, good lighting, and careful attention to driving can help prevent these types of collisions.

If you have been in a traffic accident caused by poor visibility, contact Flaxman Law Group to review your options. If your accident was simply caused by poor weather or something that cannot be prevented, you may be able to negotiate with insurance carriers to seek fair compensation. If, however, your injuries were caused by someone's negligence or recklessness you may have a legal claim that lets you seek compensation for medical bills, lost income, and other expenses from the liable parties in your case.

What Causes Visibility Motorcycle Accidents?

There are many issues that can lead to visibility problems and resulting motorcycle crashes:

  • Headlight or motorcycle defects
  • Motorcycle helmet defects
  • Motorcyclists or drivers not checking blind spots
  • Distracted drivers
  • Overgrown trees or hedges
  • Poor road design
  • Poor signage
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Poor lighting on city streets or highways
  • Obstructions on roads
  • Poor weather

In many cases, poor visibility is preventable. If you couldn't see another driver or if a driver couldn't see you because of visibility issues that could have been prevented, you may have a legal claim. Speak with a personal injury attorney in Miami Beach or your community to find out what legal options and remedies exist in your case.

How Poor Visibility Can Lead to Traffic Crashes in Miami Beach and Florida

Limited visibility affects how quickly a motorcyclist can react to changes and dangers on the roadway. Motorcyclists need to see hazards on the road so that they can maneuver out of the way in time if a collision is possible. With limited visibility, motorcyclists may be at risk because:

Motorcyclists may not notice a danger in time to avoid a collision Poor visibility can reduce visibility distance, so that a motorcyclist may be in a maneuverability collision Motorcyclists may not see a hazard at all and may crash into it Drivers may not notice a motorcyclist in time to prevent a crashMotorcycle Collision Injuries

  • Broken bones
