How is Responsibility Determined for My Florida Motorcycle Accident?

Understanding who the potential responsible parties are following a Florida motorcycle accident requires the guidance and experience of a knowledgeable legal professional. There may be additional parties responsible for your injuries, beyond just the driver of the other vehicle. Motorcycle accidents in Florida often result in substantial financial losses for victims. As a result, it is crucial for victims to identify every possible party who may be responsible for providing the compensation you deserve.

The following are some of the potential parties who may be responsible for your Ocala motorcycle accident:

  • If your Florida motorcycle accident involved another vehicle, the driver of that vehicle may be partially or fully responsible.
  • If your Florida motorcycle crash was caused by poor road conditions, you may have a claim against the owner or maintainer of the roadway.
  • A roadway construction crew if they created unsafe conditions that caused the accident.
  • The manufacturer of the motorcycle if the accident was caused by a motorcycle malfunction.
  • The owner of the motor vehicle, when the crash was caused by a driver who did not own the car that he or she was driving at the time of the accident.
  • A business that over served alcohol, resulting in an intoxicated driver of a vehicle that caused your motorcycle wreck.
  • If the at-fault driver was working at the time of the crash, his or her employer may be responsible.

After obtaining medical treatment, your next step following a crash should be to find the right attorney to protect your legal rights.
