A Devoted Motorcycle Accident Attorney In St. Petersburg, Florida
Many people throughout St. Petersburg chose to ride motorcycles as their primary mode of transportation, especially as the price of gas continues to increase. Most motorists, however, marginalize motorcycles on the road, putting motorcyclists at risk. Because of this, many motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers sideswiping a motorcyclist they couldn’t see, either because it was too dark outside, the motorcyclist was in their blind spot or they weren’t really paying attention.
If you were injured or involved in a motorcycle accident in Florida, it is best to retain the legal counsel and representation of a knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer in St. Petersburg. Often times, the driver of the car will try to paint a picture of the stereotypical motorcyclist as “driving too fast.” Sometimes they may try to claim the motorcyclist was driving recklessly. They basically come up with any excuse they can think of to pin the blame on the motorcyclist to get out of paying damages.
What Can Cause Your Motorcycle Accident?
While you’re riding down the road, it’s important to keep a watchful eye out for a number of factors that can cause an accident. Drivers of cars and trucks should yield to motorcycles as they do to any other vehicle, but this doesn’t always happen. Below are some common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Dangerous road conditions
- Lane splitting (illegal in Florida)
- Changing lanes
- Mechanical defects
