Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, and because they're small and often hard to see, they're at a greater risk of accident than other types of vehicles.  In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists were nearly 29 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle miles traveled.

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents happen every day in the United States and right here in Zephyrhills. Have you or a loved one suffered injury due to a motorcycle accident in Zephyrhills, Florida? Then let our experts work for you! The team at Lowman Law Firm cares about this community, and offers a free consultation – and you never pay until we win your case. 

 

 
 

 

Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Zephyrhills, 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 Zephyrhills, 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 Zephyrhills due to any of these conditions, we can often help!

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Zephyrhills 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 Zephyrhills 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.

  • 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!
