Accidents Caused by Negligence
When motorists share the road with motorcycles, they have a legal obligation to help ensure a cyclists’ safety, as well as that of everyone else on the road. When they fail to uphold this duty and cause an accident, they have acted in a negligent way and may be liable for any resulting injuries and damages.
Proving negligence is often one of the most difficult parts of a case. Our Stuart motorcycle accident lawyers have represented hundreds of clients against insurance companies and have successfully proven the role of negligence in complicated motor vehicle accident cases throughout Stuart.
Some of the most common types of negligent behavior that can cause an accident include:
- Following too closely behind a motorcycle
- Not looking before changing lanes
- Driving while distracted
- Turning left into the path of a motorcycle
- Failing to yield
- Not paying attention to surroundings
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving a bike with a defective part
Extreme weather and poor road conditions can also lead to an accident. In cases of bad road design or poor upkeep, the government entity in charge of maintaining those roads may be held responsible for any accidents that result.
Our Stuart motorcycle accident lawyers will carefully investigate the details of your claim to determine what caused the accident and who should be held responsible. We are dedicated to helping you get justice and fair compensation for your suffering.

Serious and Life-Threatening Injuries
Because motorcycles offer little or no protection to riders, serious and life-threatening injuries can result from even the simplest of accidents. Some common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Disfigurement and permanent scarring
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
When injuries occur, they often come with hefty medical bills and mounting expenses, especially if the victim has to miss work or is no longer able to work all together. Our Stuart motorcycle accident lawyers can help you recover fair compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
In the worst situations, death can occur. In these cases, the surviving family may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit to help cover funeral costs, medical bills and other expenses associated with losing a loved one.
