Unsafe Lane Changing Accidents

Both motorcyclists and other types of motorists on Miami and South Florida roads have an obligation to make safe lane changes. Making a safe lane change involves signaling correctly, checking for oncoming traffic, following and obeying signs and traffic lights, and making a lane change only when it is safe to do so. Unfortunately, each day motorists make unsafe lane changes and these frequently lead to motorcycle accidents and car accidents in Miami and across South Florida. These types of accidents often occur when someone fails to yield right of way, fails to signal, does not check blind spots, cuts into a lane too soon, and otherwise drives recklessly. Lane change motorcycle accidents usually involve serious injuries to the motorcyclist. If a car crashes into a motorcyclist during a lane change, the motorcyclist may suffer head injuries, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and other injuries.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Miami or anywhere in South Florida, you will want to speak with a personal injury attorney in your community or in Miami in order to get legal advice and in order to find out what may have caused the accident. Personal injury attorneys – such as those at the Flaxman Law Group -- can investigate the cause of the accident, can help you understand your rights, and can pursue fair compensation so that you do not have to pay for lost income, property damage, medical costs, and other expenses out of pocket. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Miami or in any surrounding community, contact the Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free, no obligation consultation to find out what a personal injury attorney can do for you.

How Unsafe Lane Changes Lead to Motorcycle Accidents in Miami and South Florida

For motorcyclists, unsafe lane changes can lead to sideswipe accidents, rear end accidents, head-on accidents, and other serious collisions. In these types of accidents, motorcyclists have very little protection and may be thrown from the motorcycle, causing severe head trauma, fatal injuries, and other serious or permanent injury. Luckily, Florida law does have provisions to ensure that victims of such accidents do have recourse under the law to fair compensation for their injuries.

Working with an Attorney After a Motorcycle Accident

As a member of the Miami community, the Flaxman Law Group legal staff has seen firsthand the devastating impact of not getting legal advice after a motorcycle accident. Victims who do not know all their rights may end up signing their rights away and often end up with less compensation than they may be entitled to. This compensation may not be enough to replace all lost wages and not enough to pay for all long-term medical care, leaving victims to pay the difference out of pocket. The Flaxman Law Group legal team has seen accident survivors struggling to make ends meet due to high medical costs and other expenses. Do not let this happen to you and your family. Get legal advice before signing any documents after your accident. If you have been injured in an accident in Miami or anywhere in South Florida, you can call the Flaxman Law Group at any time to arrange for a free consultation to discuss your case. Your free consultation can help you understand your options and rights and can ensure that your pressing questions about your situation get answered.
