Miami Gardens Losing Control on Turns
Balance is critical when you are operating a motorcycle. Since motorcycles are two wheeled vehicles, it is important when approaching a turn to brake and slow down before approaching the turn and then accelerate into the turn. Inexperienced and new riders may not be aware of this may wipe out on a turn. However, even experienced riders may lose control on a turn, especially if road hazards are present or if they need to swerve out of the way to avoid negligent drivers sharing the road.

One of the most common causes of losing control on turns is road conditions. Even something as simple as a pothole can be a major hazard to a small vehicle such as a motorcycle. Even if you are an experienced rider and correctly brake before entering a turn and then accelerate during the turn, an uneven surface, pothole, or even a small oil spill on the road can cause your motorcycle to wipe out.
If you have been in this type of single vehicle motorcycle accident in Miami Gardens or anywhere in Florida, how can you know who is responsible? In many cases, the municipality or city where the accident occurred is the owner of the road and is responsible for ensuring that the road is in good repair or that signs are placed to alert drivers of any known hazard. If you can show that the municipality breached a duty of reasonable care to you and that you were injured in an accident as a result of that breach of duty, you may be able to recover damages for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Motorcycle repair costs
- Motorcycle replacement costs
- Incidental costs
- Pain and suffering
- Future expected lost wages
- Future expected medical bills
