    Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries and significant medical care. You may be unable to work for a long time or even lose a loved one in a fatal motorcycle wreck. If someone else caused the accident, you have a right to compensation and hold the negligent party accountable.

    Dedicated injury attorney David Fuchs has decades of experience helping people like you obtain what they need to move forward. Contact a Boca Raton motorcycle accident lawyer today to learn more about your options and legal rights.

    Why Call a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

    By working with skilled legal representation, you have the benefit of someone who knows motorcycle accident laws and has experience negotiating fair settlements with insurance companies.

    You should never talk to the insurance company before consulting a lawyer. The insurance company will use your own words against you, even if you know you were not at fault. Let your attorney talk to the insurance company and handle all communication with them.

    David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A., knows how to negotiate the maximum insurance settlement possible. Mr. Fuchs will evaluate your case and help ensure you recover the compensation you need to recover from your motorbike crash.

    Protect Your Rights After a Motorcycle Wreck

    Insurance companies often try to take advantage of bikers. Motorcycle riders have a bad rep for being risk-takers, and the insurance company may try to blame you for the wreck.

    Don’t let them transfer liability. Attorney David Fuchs knows their tactics and will stand by your side from start to finish, so your rights are respected.

    When To Contact a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

    You should contact an attorney immediately after a motorcycle accident. Evidence may disappear, and memories will fade. It’s crucial to begin an investigation right away and interview any eyewitnesses to determine what happened.

    Additionally, Florida has a statute of limitations within which a motorcycle accident lawsuit must be filed. If you fail to make a motorcycle insurance claim before that deadline, you will forfeit your right to compensation, no matter how strong your claim is. According to state law, that deadline is four years from the date of the motorcycle accident.

    Liability in Motorbike Accidents

    In Florida, all drivers are required to have motor vehicle insurance. If you are a biker and have an accident with a passenger vehicle, you can file an insurance claim with their insurance company. The at-fault driver will be responsible for paying for all your damages.

    However, bikers are not required to have motorcycle insurance. If you are a biker in a motorcycle wreck, you may be able to have medical bills paid by your health insurance company. There may be other options for recovery as well. For example, if a defective part is on your motorcycle, you may file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.

    Other parties who may be responsible include:

    • Construction companies or general contractors in work zones
    • The city or state for a defective roadway
    • Engineers
    • Motorcycle or parts manufacturer
    • Motorcycle mechanic
    • The negligent driver’s employer if they were working at the time.

    It’s essential to include all parties responsible for causing your injuries. If you leave anyone out, you may forfeit your ability to recover your deserved compensation. A detail-oriented Boca Raton attorney could help you file your motorbike accident claim against all the relevant parties.

    Compensation for Motorcycle Injuries

    After a motorcycle crash, you can usually get compensation to cover the following losses:

    • Past and future medical costs
    • Lost income
    • Reduced earning potential
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • Disfigurement
    • Disability
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Loss of consortium (spousal relationships)

    It’s impossible to know the exact value of your claim until you speak with a motorcycle accident attorney in Boca Raton who can evaluate your case and review your damages. Many factors may increase the value of your claim. Make sure you provide as much information as possible to your lawyer so they can adequately assess your motorcycle claim.

    Injuries Associated with Motorbike Crashes

    Bikers have very little protection when a crash occurs. Even if they wear a helmet and other protective gear, it is nothing compared to the protection in a passenger vehicle.

    Some common injuries that bikers experience include:

    These injuries can be extremely serious and may take months or even years to recover. In some situations, motorbike riders are never the same after a catastrophic wreck accident or may tragically lose their lives. In these situations, it is best to take a motorcycle reck case to a compassionate and detail-oriented lawyer in Boca Raton.

    Fatal Motorcycle Crashes

    In some cases, the injuries sustained by a biker result in a fatality. This situation is devastating to everyone, and it can be hard to know what to do. Attorney David Fuchs works closely with families of the victims of fatal motorcycle accidents to help them get the money they need to move forward with life.

    In Florida, the personal representative of your loved one’s estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for the family members. You may be able to receive money for financial loss, grief, and emotional distress.

    What Usually Causes Motorcycle Crashes?

    The most common cause of all wrecks, including motorcycle accidents, is driver error. However, many factors can contribute to the mistakes of drivers. In many cases, passenger car or truck drivers fail to see motorbikes on the road because of those factors.

    More common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

    • Failure to keep a proper lookout
    • Failure to yield right of way
    • Distracted driving
    • Road defects
    • Low visibility
    • Improper lane change or swerving
    • Failure to obey traffic signals and signs
    • Inexperienced and teen drivers
    • Elderly drivers
    • Following a motorcycle too closely
    • Turning in front of a motorcycle
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

    Your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation to determine exactly what caused your crash. Then, they will establish liability and hold the at-fault driver accountable.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    “Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
