Tamarac Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents
Low visibility is never an excuse for a motorist driving into a motorcyclist. Nevertheless, in many motorcycle and car accidents in Tamarac and other communities, it is the motorcyclist who is blamed for causing the crash. This can be very unfortunate if assumptions are made and if the case is not thoroughly investigated. In these cases, it is important for the motorcyclist to clear their name and to ensure that they get fair compensation.
To get to the bottom of what is caused an accident and to get the full story, it is useful to speak with a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys, such as the attorneys at Flaxman Law Group, have the resources to thoroughly investigate a claim. They work with accident reconstruction experts, engineers, expert witnesses, and others to launch an investigation that is independent from the official and insurance investigation. Their findings may be significantly different in these cases and may help a motorcyclist get fair compensation for their injuries.

Even if a motorcyclist is wearing the right gear to increase visibility, limited visibility accidents can happen. There many reasons why these accidents can occur:
- Distracted or drunk driving
- Poor road design
- Overgrown shrubbery or trees
- Poorly placed trees or shrubbery
- Larger buildings blocking visibility
- Traffic signs blocking visibility
- Heavy machinery or other items on a construction site blocking visibility
- Poor weather
- Helmet or windshield issues
- Poor lighting
If the causes of a poor visibility collision are preventable and are caused by negligence, a motorcyclist may have a legal claim if he or she has been injured in a motorcycle crash. To find out whether you have a claim, contact a personal injury attorney to review your situation.Insurance Issues are Common After Motorcycle Collisions
After a limited visibility motorcycle crash, the insurance company representing the at-fault driver may be difficult and uncooperative. All too often, motorcyclists are blamed for causing the crash, even if they were not to blame. Since motorcyclists tend to suffer more severe injuries because they have fewer layers of protection, there is also a financial reason for insurance companies not to pay out the full maximum amount possible.
Quite simply, insurance companies unfortunately make the largest profit when they do not pay a maximum compensation amount in every case. For motorcyclists, not getting full compensation can be disastrous. It can mean that the motorcyclist needs to use up their savings or even liquidate assets in order to pay for medical care, housing, motorcycle repairs, and other necessary costs. It can also mean that a motorcyclist faces eviction, bankruptcy, or other issues due to unexpected medical expenses.
If the accident was caused through no fault of the motorcyclist, there is no reason to go through this process. It is important to talk with a personal injury attorney in Tamarac or your community immediately following the accident in order to find out what steps can be taken to protect you and your family from being unfairly blamed for the accident and from being denied insurance money.
