Why You Need a Lawyer

When a speeding driver causes a motorcycle accident, the consequences are typically more severe for the motorcyclist. After a crash, motorcyclists have an uphill battle to recovery, requiring unpaid time off from work, lengthy stays in the hospital, long-term rehabilitation, and significant amounts of pain and suffering. The best hope for these victims is to make a full recovery, but, unfortunately, that is not always possible. Emotional pain and physical trauma are only compounded with the knowledge that the accident was totally avoidable if the other driver had driven at safer speeds. It was their responsibility to respect other drivers on the road, and they should be held accountable for the damage that the accident caused.

You should not have to go through this emotional and physical pain alone if you are trying to file a claim against the negligent parties. An experienced and knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney can take care of the complex legal matters so that you can focus on getting better.

What type of speeding cases does Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. handle?

Speeding may seem harmless to some drivers, but it can have a devastating impact on unsuspecting motorcyclists. Sometimes drivers mistakenly believe they have total control of their vehicles and can afford to speed through hazardous conditions. Other times, they are unable to process important information in time to avoid crashing. The simple truth is that speed limits are put in place to protect every driver on the road, and when these limits are ignored, terrible things can happen. Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. has dealt with many types of motorcycle accidents, and we are prepared to represent victims who were injured after another driver is suspected of:

  • Driving over the speed limit
  • Failing to stop in time
  • Losing control of the vehicle at a high speed
  • Passing illegally
  • Driving aggressively
  • Ignoring posted speed changes
  • Speeding through poor weather conditions
  • Maintaining legal speeds on unsafe roadways

If I was also speeding during the accident, am I still entitled to compensation?

Yes, Florida uses a comparative negligence system that establishes a percentage of fault with each driver. If you were found to be 10% responsible for the accident, you would still receive 90% of the awarded damages.

How long do I have to file my claim?

The statute of limitations for personal injuries in Florida requires the victim to file a claim within four years of the accident. For victims seeking claims of wrongful death, the limit is two years. The best course of action is to contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer immediately after an accident to better understand all of your rights.
