Jacksonville Motorcycle Accident Attorney
This is Florida.
There's something people find irresistible about the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a motorcycle or chopper and hit the open road, soaking in the sunshine, warm air, and spectacular scenery.
Bikes bring the rider a sense of freedom and a connection with the outdoors, but unfortunately, they're also one of the most dangerous ways to get from Point A to Point B. If a highway collision occurs involving a car, there's a modest chance the driver will be thrown to the pavement, because most cars have airbags, seat belts, and crumple zones. Motorcyclists don't have those advantages.
Regardless of how they happen, motorcycle accidents are among the deadliest and most physically traumatic for survivors. Common motorcycle crash injuries include:
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injury
- Loss of limb
- Bruises and internal bleeding
- Fractures and torn ligaments
Compensation for Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accident claims are unique, because any attorney who takes these cases must know how to defend bikers against the stigma that they are reckless drivers. In almost all motorcycle crashes, the other motorist is the cause, having failed to drive safely around the cyclist.
Catastrophic motorcycle accidents mean months of medical care, hospital bills, pain, suffering, and time off work. At the Law Offices of Craig Gibbs, we are prepared to take on these cases and seek significant compensation on your behalf. We stay updated on all state and local laws that apply to motorcyclists, we fully investigate the accident, we account for conditions, and we calculate a comprehensive tally of your current and future losses. We've represented many friends and neighbors in personal injury cases, helping them collect optimum compensation for their injuries.
We handle crashes caused by:
- being cut off in traffic when another motorist swerves into your lane or pulls out in front of you
- negligent and distracted drivers
- drunk or intoxicated drivers
If someone else caused an accident that damaged your bike and left you with injuries, we will do everything in our power to collect damages from the person's insurance company via settlement or jury award.
It is important that you consult with us before signing any official documents. We will guide you toward beneficial choices, protect your legal rights, and ensure you don't inadvertently do anything to jeopardize yourself in the battle for compensation.
