Motor vehicle drivers often fail to see motorcyclists or drive in a manner that subjects motorcyclists to harm. The result of collisions with motorcycles is often traumatic brain damage, paralysis, back injury, and amputation of limbs, as well as fractures, severe burns, or "road rash." According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to be killed in a motor vehicle accident than are occupants of passenger vehicles. Even a minor crash at low speed can result in serious injuries for a motorcyclist.
In Florida and Massachusetts, hundreds of motorcyclists lose their lives every year. Those who are fortunate enough to survive sustain serious injuries, including traumatic brain injury, internal injuries, fractures and/or broken bones and spinal cord injuries. Those injured in a motorcycle accident may require months of hospitalization, numerous surgeries, on-going physical therapy, and vocational rehabilitation.
Ira Evan Weintraub works with your medical providers as well as economists, rehabilitation experts, and certified life care planners to document the full extent of the damages you have suffered. He will work to achieve the maximum possible recovery for all of your damages, including current and future lost wages, and your need for continuing medical care, physical and vocational rehabilitation, and assistance with the tasks of daily living.
Even motorcyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing protective gear are at a huge disadvantage in a collision with an automobile. Many factors can contribute
to a motorcycle accident:
· Automobile and/or truck drivers who fail to see motorcyclists;
· Automobile and/or truck drivers who fail to keep a safe distance behind a motorcycle;
· Automobile and/or truck drivers who run red lights and/or fail to yield the right of way;
· Defective tires, brakes, or other equipment on the bike;
· Hazardous road conditions; and
· Driving under the influence.
Florida is a comparative fault state. This means that if both the motorcyclist and the other driver are both partly to blame for the accident, the percentage of fault attributed to a motorcyclist can impact the amount of liability and damages awarded in a lawsuit. Massachusetts, however, follows a modified comparative law theory. This means that if you are more than fifty-one percent (51%) negligent, then you are not entitled to any recovery. Ira Evan Weintraub seeks to show that the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, that the motorcycle was in working order, and that the motorcyclist was operating safely.
