Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Crystal River, FL

Motorcycles offer riders a lot of freedom, but that freedom can turn fatal or cause personal injury. And, because Florida ranks #2 in motorcycle registrations (second only to California), a lot of accidents happen right here in the Sunshine State. They're also not uncommon in Crystal River, and a lot of factors can contribute to motorcycle accidents.

  • Vehicles making left-hand turns
  • Motorcycle lane splitting
  • Drivers under the influence 
  • Fatigued drivers
  • Distracted drivers (e.g., texting, eating, etc)
  • Reckless drivers (e.g., speeding, driving too closely behind another vehicle, taking corners too quickly)
  • Aggressive drivers (i.e., road rage)
  • Inexperienced riders
  • Heavy rains and winds
  • Hazardous road conditions

If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident in Crystal River due to any of these conditions, we can often help!

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Crystal River Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

While Personal Injury Protection (PIP) auto insurance is mandatory for automobile drivers in Florida, it does not cover motorcycles, which can leave a motorcyclist in financial distress following an accident. Of course, before you can proceed with a legal case to get compensation for injuries, a party must be identified as legally responsible for the motorcycle accident. This may include: 

  • The motorcycle manufacturer
  • The driver of another vehicle
  • The government agency responsible for maintaining safe roadways
  • The repair shop responsible for work on the bike
  • The motorcycle rental company

A party is considered “at fault” when they are negligent, doing something to cause the crash. Types of negligence include:

  • Comparative Negligence: The injured party shares fault with the defendant.
  • Gross Negligence: Negligent actions that go beyond simple carelessness (e.g., a drunk driver).
  • Vicarious Liability: Negligence of one party that another party is responsible for (e.g., local government's responsibility for bus drivers).

Your insurance will assess these four elements of negligence to determine fault:

  • Duty of Care: The driving conduct of the at-fault party compared to that of the victim.
  • Causation: The negligent actions of the at-fault party must have caused the accident that resulted in your injuries.
  • Damages: Proof that you sustained injuries (medical bills, lost wages post-injury, etc).
  • Breach of Duty: The at-fault driver breached their duty to act carefully by failing to follow traffic rules.

When you choose Lowman Law Firm for your Crystal River personal injury attorney or wrongful death attorney, we will:

  • Meet with you at no cost to discuss your options and to understand how your injury occurred.
  • File all necessary paperwork to help you get the compensation you deserve.
  • Keep in contact with you during your case, providing your attorney's cell phone number so you can reach out directly anytime.
  • Obtain all documentation available to support your injury case including medical bills and physician testimony.
  • Collect any available evidence related to your accident, including any proof that the other party is at fault when possible.
  • Defend your rights throughout the legal process, and we do not collect a fee unless you win!

Automobile Accident Case

Dealing with insurance companies is not a pleasant experience and I wanted a professional on my side. I met with Joe Lowman who explained the process to me and put me at ease with me realizing that I had a competent, capable and experienced team fighting for me. They navigated through getting my car fixed and countless medical appointments and kept me informed as things progressed. Joe Hill was awesome at taking the facts, communicating with the doctors offices and insurance companies and getting the best outcome possible. The outcome was greater than I thought was possible. This would not have been possible without the awesome work, skills and professionalism of Joe Hill. He is great and I will always recommend Lowman Law Firm. You guys are fantastic!

Trucking Accident Case

I never would have imagined a car accident case being this pleasant. I’ve had a different lawyer in the past and it was not great. I was recommended to Lowman Law firm and immediately I felt important walking through their door. Throughout the entire process I was never clueless about what was going on with the case. They were always responding immediately and staying on top of things.
