You may be able to negotiate with your insurance carrier, pursue an at-fault driver, or pursue other liable parties in your case.

Poor Road Design In Miami Lakes And Florida Can Lead to Single Motorcycle Accidents

After a motorcycle accident involving a single vehicle, many authorities tend to blame the motorcyclist for the crash. However, many of these accidents are actually caused by poor road design. There may be many types of road design and maintenance issues that can cause single bike crashes, including:

  • Debris on the roads
  • Potholes
  • Uneven road surfaces
  • Narrow lanes
  • Poor signage
  • Inadequate road markings
  • Broken or missing guardrails
  • Overgrown signage
  • Inadequate precautions to prevent wildlife from wandering onto the road

In addition to poor road design and maintenance, there may be other reasons for a single bike crash. For example, many of these types of accidents are actually caused by other drivers. A motorcyclist may swerve out of the way of another motorist who is driving negligently and this may cause a single motorcycle accident. Even though the other driver may not have been directly involved in the accident, there is still the at-fault driver that has caused the crash in the first place.

In other instances, poor weather, bad visibility, and other issues may also contribute to the crash. After a single bike accident, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in order to get answers about what has caused an accident and in order to get information about what can be done to preserve fair compensation for the injuries sustained.

How Covered Are You After a Traffic Collision?

Even if you have insurance, keep in mind that insurance in some cases will not cover the full cost of your injuries, leaving you with thousands of dollars – or more – to pay yourself. You don't want this to happen to you. Having your insurance money run out before you're fully recovered and having to pay for all of your injuries can place you and your family in severe financial distress. To protect yourself from this eventuality, contact a personal injury attorney in your community to review your options and to help you understand exactly how to safeguard your finances.
