Forced Off The Road on Your Motorcycle
Can you still have a claim in a motorcycle case if you were forced off the road by another driver? The answer is, yes, you have a claim. It may be a difficult claim if it’s in the context of a hit and run driver who ran you off the road and took off— we may not be able to discover the identity of that person. That’s where having your own coverage called uninsured motorists or underinsured motorists coverage comes into play to cover your injuries.
Yes, you have a claim. It’s just a little bit different. We would need to sit down and discuss the facts a little bit more. It may be that the roadway had a contributing factor to your going off the road, as well. There are a number of different things that could come into play. While the answer is yes, you still need an experienced lawyer by your side. We have been in practice for decades handling motorcycle claims in Nassau County, Duval County, and the surrounding areas. If you have that situation, call us. We’ll talk about it and we’ll see how best we can help you.
Motorcycle Accidents From Poorly Maintained Roads
When clients come in to see us after they’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident in the roadways of Duval County or Nassau County, especially up here in Nassau County, they will point out that part of the accident happened because a roadway was in bad shape. You see it all over our region— there are rough areas on the roadway. Clients want to know if they can make a claim against the person who is taking care of the road. The answer is yes. Roadway contractors, municipalities, and governmental agencies who have a responsibility to maintain roadways have to do it in a reasonable fashion. If they negligently maintain a roadway and it leads to your being injured because you lost control of your motorcycle on damaged roads, then you can make a claim.
Now, there are complexities to it. You’re venturing into an area that an experienced lawyer can navigate and an inexperienced lawyer cannot. We’ve handled cases like theses for decades. We have handled cases against the roadway contractors, the DOT, and other agencies that are responsible for maintaining roadways. We know how to navigate through them. If you’ve been hurt on a motorcycle in Nassau County or Duval County or the surrounding areas and it was because of a defectively maintained roadway, you call us. We’ll sit down and we’ll figure out how best to help you.
Choosing The Right Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
When people ask how someone should go about choosing a lawyer for their motorcycle accident case, we always tell them to look for experience. You need someone who knows how to handle this kind of a case because it’s different than if you were hurt in an automobile. A couple of the major differences is that in a motorcycle accident, you do not have to have a permanent injury, although there’s no such thing as a minor motorcycle accident case.
Secondly, there is a bias out there against folks who drive motorcycles. The lawyer needs to know that and understand that and factor that into the case. We’ve been handling cases like these for decades, and we know how to handle them. We know what the inside of a courtroom looks like, too, which is another factor to consider. Is the lawyer experienced in the court room? If you’ve been hurt riding a motorcycle in Duval County, Nassau County, or the surrounding areas, call us. We’ll sit down and see how best we can help you.
