At Brian D. Guralnick Injury Lawyers, we regularly represent accident victims and their families in cases throughout Palm Beach County.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Wrecks
While sudden rain showers are a persistent issue for drivers in Palm Beach County, they are by no means the only issue that can lead to avoidable accidents. Drivers regularly overlook motorcycles (or, in some cases, simply disregard them), and they continually make other basic mistakes that lead to dangerous collisions. While drivers can – and should – avoid these mistakes, they often leave motorcycle riders helpless to avoid life-threatening situations.
Some of the most common issues that lead to motorcycle accidents in Florida include the following:
- Following motorcycles too closely (tailgating)
- Merging without checking for motorcycles in blind spots
- Opening car doors without looking for traffic
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Speeding (either above the posted limit or too fast for the conditions)
- Talking and texting behind the wheel
- Turning in front of oncoming motorcycles
Even if you think you may have been partially responsible for the accident, you could still be entitled to financial compensation. Florida is among the small number of states that allow accident victims to recover partial compensation regardless of their level of fault (as long as it is less than 100 percent).
Financial Compensation for Bike Wreck Victims and Their Families
As the victim of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to recover all of your accident-related expenses, as well as financial compensation for the physical and emotional toll of your injuries. This includes money to cover your:
- Medical bills (past and future)
- Lost income (past and future)
- Motorcycle repair or replacement costs
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of companionship with your spouse
- Loss of enjoyment of life
