Frequently Asked Questions
Tampa Motorcycle Accident Attorney Answers Your Questions
Why do I need an attorney?
After any accident, there will be an investigation to determine the cause and establish who or what was responsible. In any type of motorcycle accident, there is an unfortunate bias against the motorcyclist as being at least partially responsible for the accident. It is important to have an experienced attorney who can thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident and who can effectively provide evidence and testimony to overcome any such idea.

Who is allowed to sue if there is a motorcycle accident and there are injuries or a death?
If the motorcycle driver was not at fault, then the driver or the surviving family has the right to file a personal injury or wrongful death suit against any other responsible parties. If the driver was at fault, any passenger injured or any occupants of the other vehicles involved have the right to sue the driver.
If an accident occurs, how is responsibility established and who can be sued?
It is important to conduct a comprehensive investigation to determine any and all of the causes of an accident resulting in injury or fatalities. Along with the police investigation, our firm is prepared to review and provide additional inquiry to determine where the liability lies. The motorcycle driver, any other drivers involved at the time, unsafe road conditions, any property owners who are found liable for dangerous conditions that contributed to the accident and any manufacture responsible for defective equipment can be sued for negligence.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
You have four years after the accident to file a lawsuit for injuries or wrongful death. The sooner you hire an attorney to represent you, the better the chances are of collecting the evidence and testimony needed to successfully pursue your case.
