    Enjoying a ride on a motorcycle can be a great way to explore Hollywood, Florida. However, not all drivers on the road are considerate of riders, which can result in some of the most severe injuries a person can suffer.

    If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Filing a lawsuit for a motorcycle accident can be a challenging process, as many riders are often blamed for causing the accident. However, our team understands that most accidents are caused by the carelessness of other drivers, and we can assist you in proving it.

    What to Do if You Are Injured in a Hollywood, FL Motorcycle Accident

    Sustaining injuries from motorcycle accidents in Hollywood can lead to significant losses. To ensure your legal rights are protected, it is crucial to take appropriate measures after an accident. After seeking medical assistance, our motorcycle accident lawyers will be available to aid you in obtaining the compensation you deserve. To maximize your likelihood of success in a Hollywood motorcycle accident lawsuit, it is essential to adhere to the guidelines below:

    Call the Police

    It is crucial to contact the police right away in the case of a motorcycle accident in Hollywood. Once they arrive, they will document the incident and might assist in sharing information with the other party or taking pictures of any damages. Additionally, if the police conclude that the other driver was at fault, they will likely issue a traffic citation, which can be used to argue fault later.

    Exchange Information with Other Parties

    It is also crucial to exchange information with the driver responsible for the mishap, any passengers, witnesses, or other drivers who might have been involved. You should take note of the names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone who was present at the scene. Furthermore, you should obtain the insurance details of the driver who was at fault. If the other driver is uncooperative, you can request the assistance of police officers to obtain the necessary information through their investigation.

    Take Photos and Videos

    In addition to exchanging information with other parties involved, it is important to take photos and videos of the damage to your motorcycle and helmet after an accident. You can use your smartphone to capture images of everything related to the accident scene, such as broken glass, debris, skid marks, and any visible damage to the vehicles involved, like broken headlights or taillights. Do not forget to take pictures of where the vehicles came to a stop after the collision. This evidence can be very helpful if you need to file a lawsuit in the future.

    If you are injured, it is important to take photos and videos of your injuries right after the accident. This will allow you to compare the condition of your injuries later in the legal proceedings after you have received medical attention. It is also advisable to write down all the details you can remember about the accident before your memory starts to fade.

    Seek Medical Treatment

    You should also prioritize seeking immediate medical attention following your motorcycle accident. This is because the injuries can worsen over time if left untreated, which can lead to severe consequences. If you have suffered a head injury, it is particularly imperative to see a doctor as soon as possible. Delaying treatment can cause permanent damage, which can make it challenging for your lawyer to determine the extent of your injuries and the associated damages. Without medical treatment, it will be hard to prove the injuries you suffered significantly affected your life and that you deserve to be compensated for them.

    Contact Our Firm

    It is imperative that you reach out to our firm as soon as possible to safeguard your rights and guarantee that the insurance company of the liable party pays you the full benefits you are entitled to. If necessary, we can file a lawsuit to retrieve the compensation that you rightfully deserve. Additionally, we can gather statements from witnesses and collect more evidence to bolster your case.

    Who Can Be Held Liable for a Motorcycle Accident in Hollywood, FL

    Determining the complexity of a motorcycle accident lawsuit depends on identifying the responsible party and the extent of their liability. Our team has the experience to identify the liable parties in your case. In some instances, multiple parties might have acted negligently, leading to the accident. It is possible that the injury was not caused by another driver but instead by a government entity in Hollywood or the negligence of the motorcycle manufacturer. These are the most common parties that are sued in a motorcycle accident lawsuit in Hollywood.

    Other Drivers

    Motorcycle accidents in Hollywood often result in rider injuries caused by other drivers’ negligence. Due to a lack of concentration or oversight, drivers frequently fail to perceive motorcycles on the road. However, not noticing the rider beforehand is not a valid defense in any potential legal action.

    If multiple drivers are involved in a motorcycle accident, each driver can be held accountable for the portion of the damages that they caused. For instance, suppose one driver was speeding and collided with another driver who made an illegal lane change, which resulted in harm to you and your motorcycle. In that case, both drivers are responsible for compensating you for the damages caused by their actions.

    Commercial Drivers and Their Employers

    If a motorcycle accident occurs due to an employee’s negligence while performing work-related activities, not only the driver but also the employer might be held accountable. In case of an on-the-job accident, while a driver is delivering goods for a company, the company is generally responsible for their negligence. This legal concept is known as respondeat superior and legal action can be taken against both the driver and their employer.

    Designers and Manufacturers of Motorcycles and Motorcycle Parts

    In case your motorcycle accident was caused by a defective bike or bike part, you have the option to file a claim against the manufacturer or designer, regardless of whether the bike was imported or domestic. This means that the maker could be held responsible for not ensuring the safety of the motorcycle design or for failing to disclose any potential hazards associated with the use of the product.

    State and Local Governments

    Motorcyclists might sustain injuries due to poor road conditions and hazards that are the responsibility of local or state government agencies. For example, a rider can be thrown off their bike after hitting an unnoticed pothole. If a local or state government agency was responsible for and knew about the pothole but failed to take any action to fix it, you can file a lawsuit for negligence. However, suing a government entity involves more legal regulations, making these cases more difficult to successfully file without the help of legal counsel.

    “…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. 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!!
