South Florida Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Contact Us for a Free Consultation: (954) 522-6601

South Florida is known for its beautiful weather, which allows motorcycle enthusiasts to enjoy riding year-round. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are particularly susceptible to death and personal injury in highway collisions. According to national statistics, however, most motorcyclists involved in accidents with automobiles are not at fault for the crash.

If you suffered an injury in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers at Kelley/Uustal can help. Many collisions occur when an automobile driver does not see a motorcyclist. Due to the unprotected nature of riding, motorcyclists are at a disadvantage and tend to suffer catastrophic injuries.

Are you ready to speak to an attorney about your case? Call Kelley/Uustal to set up a meeting with our team. Initial consultations are FREE and confidential.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Florida

While motorcyclists are often thought of as reckless, statistics prove otherwise. In most cases, it is the other driver who is responsible for causing a motorcycle accident.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Drivers changing lanes into the path of a motorcyclist
  • Drivers failing to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists
  • Drivers making left-hand turns in front of a motorcyclist
  • Dangerous roadway design or hazards left in the road
  • Drivers following too closely behind a motorcyclist
