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.

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

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.
