Miami Lakes Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents

Few things can compare to the thrill of the open road on a motorcycle. While motorcycles are lots of fun to ride, however, they do come with more hazards than the average passenger vehicle. One of the big hazards with motorcycles is that motorcyclists require excellent visibility in order to prevent collisions. Since even relatively minor obstructions -- such as potholes or debris on the road -- can pose a serious risk to motorcyclists, it is very important that motorcycles have a good view of the road and can see any problems ahead of them. When poor visibility affects a motorcyclist's ability to react quickly to a danger, serious accidents can and do occur.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a traffic crash in Miami Lakes or another community and you believe that limited visibility or another preventable cause played a role in the collision, contact Flaxman Law Group at any time to arrange a free case review. The attorneys at our South Florida law firm have more than six decades of combined experience and would be pleased to put this experience to work on your case.

What Causes Limited Visibility Traffic Crashes in Florida?

In addition to driver distraction, weather and traffic conditions can also lead to limited visibility motorcycle accidents in Miami Lakes and across Florida. In some cases, fog or heavy rain, for example, can keep motorists and truck drivers from seeing a smaller motorcycle, especially if the bike and rider do not have reflective fabrics or have poorly functioning headlights. In many cases, however, poor road design plays a major role in visibility crashes. There may be many road design issues that lead to collisions, including:

  • Overgrown trees, hedges, and other plants
  • Blind turns or obstructions that prevent a clear view of the road
  • Poor street lighting
Deciding Fault After a Motorcycle or Car Accident in Miami Lakes

A critical aspect of any Florida negligence case is determining fault. Determining who was at fault can help you find the liable parties who can be pursued in a civil claim. Finding multiple liable parties can actually serve you because it can increase the chances that you can recover fair compensation from multiple sources. It is also often be more accurate to find multiple liable parties, as often there is more than one party at fault in a visibility collision. To find out who is liable and at fault in your crash, contact a personal injury attorney for a full investigation of your situation.
