As a cyclist, you must exercise particular caution when driving. Motorcycles are smaller, less protected vehicles, and riding one puts you in greater danger than driving a car or truck. Other drivers are expected to be aware of this fact; if they fail to do so and someone is injured, you have the right to seek reimbursement through a civil suit.
Paying for an accident is costly. You are injured, without transportation, and may be unable to earn a living. If you are a resident of Coconut Creek, contact GED Lawyers. We have motorcycle accident lawyers who can look into your case and advise you on the best course of action for recouping your losses.

We Will Assist You in Identifying All Liable Parties for Your Accident in Coconut Creek
The most common liable parties in an auto accident can be broken into 3 categories.
Individual: Possibly the most common cause of a car accident. Common causes of avoidable collisions include texting and driving, drunk driving, and general roadside misconduct. However, careless pedestrian activity might also be the cause of an accident. A crash can be caused by more than one party, but all of them are liable for your losses.
Manufacturer: Tires, engines, seatbelts, and brakes are just a few examples of car components that can be defective and contribute to an accident or worsen injuries. A driver might encounter situations as a result of these flaws, and manufacturers may be held liable.
Municipality: The government is responsible for maintaining the safety and functionality of traffic signs, lights, cones, and the road itself. Even though a personal injury claim against the government is subject to its own set of laws and rules, it can still be made liable for your costs.
The at-fault party in your case can be any combination of the above parties. It is up to GED Lawyers to investigate using dashcam footage, witness accounts, and evidence to ascertain the reason behind the crash and prove culpability. Any assistance you can offer is invaluable, but the battle to prove fault is ours. All we ask for is your testimony.
As a Motorcyclist, Certain Risks Are More Prevalent
Being in a much smaller, less protected vehicle, motorcyclists are more prone to serious injury in a collision with larger vehicles like cars or trucks.
You can take safety precautions such as wearing helmets which can prevent fatal injury, but they ultimately only serve to mitigate the overall damage done to the cyclist, and a collision that dismounts the cyclists can still have catastrophic repercussions.
Injuries and physical conditions that can arise from a motorcycle accident include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Internal Bleeding
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury
A motorbike accident should never be taken lightly. Even if you appear to be unhurt, it is critical to get medical assistance right away since you may have experienced an internal injury that is not immediately noticeable.
Furthermore, the physical ailments you may have could cost upwards of thousands in medical bills.
Motorcycle Accidents in Florida Fall Under Comparative Negligence Fault Laws
As of March of 2023, Florida is now a Modified Comparative Negligence state. Comparative negligence dictates the amount of money you will be able to receive from your settlement based on your involvement in the accident that caused you harm.
In Florida, even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you will still be able to receive damages. They will be reduced by your percentage of responsibility, though. However, if you are 51% or more responsible for your accident, you will be unable to pursue any form of financial compensation.
Our team takes this law into consideration and will fight tooth and nail on your behalf for a fair judgment in your case regardless of difficulty or circumstance.
