Ocala Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer

 Unfortunately, here in Florida a motorcyclist becomes a victim of an injury-causing-crash nearly every hour of the day, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. With over 10,000 motorcycle collisions annually, and between 500 and 600 fatalities and over 8,000 serious injuries, Florida is the single most dangerous state for motorcyclists. If you were involved in a collision caused by another road user, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The Ocala motorcycle accident lawyers at The Pendas Law Firm can review your case to see if you may be owed compensation by the other party, and if so, we can help you pursue maximum compensation to cover your damages.

Maximizing Compensation for Your Damages

As a victim of a motorcycle collision, you likely have expensive medical bills to pay and a long laundry list of other damages. Our attorneys are experienced negotiators and fierce litigators, and can help you collect compensation for the following damages:

  • Past medical expenses;
  • Future medical expenses;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Lost wages and earning capacity;
  • Property damage;
  • Loss of joy of life;
  • Emotional distress; and
  • More.

Proving Liability and Determining How The Crash Happened

In order to be compensated, you must establish liability. The other party who was responsible for causing the crash, be they a car driver, truck driver, or even a municipality, will only be held accountable if you are able to reveal their negligence. This can be a complicated process, as drivers tend to bend the truth or outright lie in order to save themselves from being held responsible. And, because motorcyclists face unfair biases in our society, you are facing an uphill battle. After all, motorcyclists are routinely criticized for not wearing helmets or riding dangerously, even if the truth is that car and truck drivers cause more collisions with motorcycles than motorcyclists themselves. According to a study and reported on by the Sun Sentinel, motorists cause 60 percent of collisions with motorcyclists. Some of the most common ways these collisions occur, in which the car or truck drivers are at fault, are outlined below:

  • Failure to yield right of way when pulling out from a side street;
  • Drifting into the motorcyclist’s lane of traffic;
  • Failure to look before changing lanes into the motorcyclist’s lane of traffic;
  • Excessive speeding;
  • Rear-ending a motorcyclist at a slowing down moment, a stop light, or stop sign; and
  • Failure to yield right of way while making a left turn across the motorcyclist’s lane of traffic.

Most of these “accidents” are caused by distraction, intoxication, or impatient/aggressive driving, and could easily have been avoided if the driver was obeying traffic laws and paying attention.
