Miami Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
When you are riding your motorcycle, you are always hyperaware of everything around you. You have to think five steps ahead to protect yourself and your machine. Unfortunately, even at your most alert, you are not always able to account for the possible negligence of other drivers. Some people are simply not paying attention and fail to realize just how disastrous this can be to you.
When you are in an accident with a negligent driver, injury is nearly inevitable. The mass of the car is too great for any other outcome. You may be left with permanent, life-altering injuries – all because someone else was not driving responsibly.
If you have been hurt by a negligent driver while riding, it is extremely important that you contact an experienced Miami motorcycle accident attorney. The success of any future litigation will have a drastic effect on the quality of your life moving forward.

We Help You Find Out if You Are Eligible for Compensation
It’s critical to consult an attorney who has handled motorcycle accident cases after a collision because they will help you determine if you are eligible for compensation for any losses and injuries that you’ve incurred. Common motorcycle accident injuries include broken bones, lacerations, spinal cord injuries, severe head trauma, and so on. You might think that you aren’t entitled to any recompense if the car accident was partially your fault. This is not always the case, however.
You may be eligible for a modest payment in certain circumstances. The small payout is intended to help cover medical expenses for any motorcycle accident injury you suffered and repair costs of your motorcycle. Without the aid of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer, you might not know to pursue this compensation.
A Miami motorcycle accident lawyer from Kaire & Heffernan will assist you in determining your eligibility for any type of compensation. Oftentimes, victims of motorcycle accidents don’t know how to determine how much money is owed to them. It’s highly likely that motorcycle accident victims will accept less than they deserve without guidance from a lawyer with experience in motorcycle accident cases. Our team will work with you to determine if you are eligible for compensation, negotiate the most advantageous settlement, or if necessary, represent you in court.
We Support You in Filing a Legal Claim
After our Miami motorcycle accident attorney has determined that you are owed compensation, they can assist you in submitting a claim. The process of claiming a settlement varies from case to case, but in many situations, it is as simple as negotiating with the insurance company. If the insurance company does not want to pay the claim or the discussions fail, the next step is going to court. You can count on the personal injury law firm of Kaire & Heffernan to help and support your case from start to finish!
Assistance with Insurance Claims Procedures
After an accident in Florida, filing an insurance claim is often the first source of compensation. However, insurance claims can be stressful and difficult to navigate. You should be aware that insurers will go to any length to reduce your payout. When you have an attorney on your side, however, insurance companies can’t use their usual deceptive methods to limit your compensation. Our Miami motorcycle accident lawyers will guide you through the procedure, find your leverage in the case, and ensure that fair compensation is offered or won.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcyclists involved in an accident can sustain serious, life-altering injuries, including:
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Brain injuries, brain damage, and closed head wounds
- Burns and scars
- Amputation and disfigurement
- Paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia
- Wrongful death
Fault and Compensation
When you pursue legal action in a motorcycle case, you need to be able to prove that the other party was responsible for the accident if you want to have a successful legal case. You need an attorney that has demonstrated the ability to prove fault in motorcycle cases. Without fault, you do not have a case.
If your attorney can prove that the other driver was responsible for what happened, you have a strong chance of obtaining the compensation you need for your injuries. Even when you are not wearing a helmet, as demonstrated by the case above, you are not automatically at fault for the accident. If the other driver is responsible, you can still collect compensation – helmet or no helmet.
We Stand up for Motorcyclists
Anyone who does not ride will tell you how dangerous motorcycles are. In a way, they are right. On your bike, you are exposed in a way you never are in a car. It takes very little to cause an accident on a motorcycle, and the resulting injuries – because there is so little protection – can be severe. But what people do not often understand is that responsible riding can be extremely safe.
The one thing that even the most responsible rider cannot fully account for is the careless driver. It only takes a single mistake from a driver to leave you hurt for life. This is why it is so important to go after negligent parties. Not only do you receive compensation for your injuries, you also make a statement that it is not acceptable to drive carelessly.
