    The path to recovery after motorcycle accidents can be painful. Victims regularly suffer devastating harm like spinal cord damage, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries. Unfortunately, a high number of these accidents happen as the result of drivers’ negligence.

    Injured riders may be able to sue the motorists responsible for their crashes. Several forms of monetary damages can be pursued. However, plaintiffs must be able to prove that their accidents are related to the defendants’ negligence.

    In the aftermath of a motorcycle crash in Orange County, FL, get support from our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at The Law Offices of David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A. by dialing (954) 751-4258.

    What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Orange County, FL

    If you suffered a harmful motorcycle accident in Orange County, there are certain actions you can take that will help your ability to recover financial compensation. Your first step should be calling 911. The police must be called after any crash that causes an injury. Furthermore, if you need immediate medical care, then the dispatcher may send an ambulance to the scene.

    Your next step should involve exchanging information with other parties. Insurance information and contact information should be traded with other drivers involved in your crash. Furthermore, you should obtain contact information from any eyewitnesses if you can. Eyewitnesses may provide both oral and written statements that help prove who is to blame for your accident.

    Next, you should take photos at the scene of your crash. Photos from the scene can be used to identify factors that contributed to your accident. Additionally, they can help disprove the defendant’s alternative theory of fault. For example, the defendant may argue that your accident was caused by poor road conditions, as opposed to their negligence. In that instance, photos from the scene depicting adequate road conditions could be used to discredit the defendant’s assertion.

    If you did not receive emergency medical treatment in the immediate aftermath of your crash, you should seek medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you can. Medical documentation of your injuries is necessary to recover compensation from another driver. If you wait for your injuries to heal on their own, you may be unable to obtain such documentation. Furthermore, the defendant in your case may use a delay in treatment to argue that you were not badly injured.

    Finally, you should call our motorcycle accident attorneys as soon as possible after suffering an accident in Orange County. During your free case review, our team will explain the appropriate course of action.

    Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Orange County, FL

    A high number of motorcycle crashes happen as the result of drivers’ negligent behavior. For example, one of the most common sources of accidents is distracted driving. Drivers can become distracted by taking their eyes off the road, hands off the wheel, or attention away from the task of driving. While distracted, motorists are prone to committing careless and reckless maneuvers without regard for bikers sharing the roadway. Common examples of activities that distract drivers include eating, texting, playing music on the radio, and talking with passengers. Thankfully, distracted motorists often can be sued for motorcycle accidents they cause.

    Also, many motorcycle accidents happen because drivers run red lights. When motorists fail to obey red lights, they can cause devastating crashes with riders travelling through intersections. These types of collisions often happen during rush hour and other periods of high traffic congestion. Fortunately, there are several forms of evidence that can be used to establish fault for such accidents.

    Additionally, motorcycle accidents regularly happen because drivers commit improper left turns. Many of these accidents happen because drivers simply do not notice riders sharing the roadway. If you suffered a crash because another driver failed to properly yield the right-of-way, then you may be entitled to compensation for the harm you endured.

    Finally, speeding is a common cause of motorcycle accidents in Orange County. When travelling at excessive speeds, drivers will have difficulty controlling their vehicles and slowing down when riders in front of them have to brake. Accidents caused by speeding drivers often happen on highways and rural roads.

    Common Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents in Orange County, FL

    Motorcycle accidents can lead to many types of devastating harm. For instance, many riders sustain traumatic brain injuries. These injuries usually occur as a result of physical blows to the head. A rider may suffer such a blow when they are struck by another vehicle or when they contact the ground. In any case, traumatic brain injuries can produce a wide range of symptoms that have highly detrimental effects on victims’ lives.

    Like traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries are another particularly serious type of harm suffered by motorcycle accident victims. These injuries can lead immense pain and immobility. In severe cases, those who incur spinal cord injuries may even develop partial or complete paralysis. Riders who sustain spinal cord injuries may be entitled to significant compensation for the economic and non-economic damages they sustained.

    Additionally, many motorcycle accident victims suffer broken bones. These injuries can be excruciatingly painful and debilitating. In severe cases, those with broken bones may even require surgical treatment.

    Soft tissue injuries are another common type of harm caused by motorcycle accidents. These injuries can place significant restrictions on victims’ abilities to work and enjoy their lives. Thankfully, if you suffered soft tissue injuries because of your motorcycle accident, then you may pursue monetary damages from the at-fault driver.

    Finally, some motorcycle accidents cause internal injuries like organ damage and internal bleeding. These injuries can produce severe symptoms but may not become noticeable until days after a crash. If you believe you may have incurred internal injuries because of your motorcycle accident, then you should visit a doctor as soon as you can.

    “…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!!
