The lack of safety features inherent in motorcycles also guarantees catastrophic or fatal injuries when a rider is involved in a collision. If the collision was caused by someone acting negligently, you have the right to take legal action for the serious injury, financial loss, or other painful damages you have sustained.
A Fort Lauderdale motorcycle accident attorney from Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. can help you fight for the compensation you deserve from all liable parties, including other drivers, vehicle manufacturers, and even government entities responsible for roadway safety.

Common Injuries & Damages in Motorcycle Accidents
Aside from the costs of motorcycle repairs, you may be left with some massive expenses after being in a motorcycle accident, especially if you have serious injuries, such as:
- Severe burns
- Multiple fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
Florida does not allow motorcyclists to have personal injury protection (aka “no-fault insurance”). Even if you have an auto insurance policy, your car insurance provider will not compensate you for damages and injuries associated with a motorcycle accident. This can make it very challenging for you to get the money you need to pay for hospital bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, and other expenses and losses you may incur after your accident.
How to Recover Compensation for Damages
Chances are, you probably need immediate help with your medical bills and injury-related expenses. In many cases, hiring a motorcycle accident attorney is a great way to get a relatively fast solution to the immense costs created by motorcycle accidents. At the very least, a personal injury lawyer can help you negotiate a short-term solution until your case reaches a verdict or settlement.
