Motorcycle riders enjoy the freedom of the open road, but this freedom brings a price in terms of their vulnerability to serious injury or death in any traffic accident. Drivers of cars and trucks are obligated to share the road with motorcycles, yet all too often they fail to see the motorcyclist due to negligence or distracted driving, or they drive recklessly and negligently around the motorcycle without considering the danger they are creating. Attorney Salesia Smith-Gordon in West Palm Beach helps individuals and families rebuild their lives when they are shattered by a serious or catastrophic motorcycle accident. Our firm holds drivers who cause motorcycle accidents accountable for their actions, which often include:
- Failing to Check Blind Spots
- Forcing Motorcycles Off the Road
- Stopping Short
- Changing Lanes without Warning
- Squeezing or Crowding Bikers out of their Lane
- Turning in front of an Oncoming or Trailing Motorcycle
When we take on a motorcycle accident case, we dedicate ourselves to providing the time and attention necessary to build a strong case from the ground up. This process often includes conducting a thorough investigation of the scene, reviewing police reports, interviewing witnesses, and collecting relevant evidence. Armed with the facts, our firm is fully-prepared to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company, or to litigate your claim in court when the insurance company is unwilling to do what’s right.
