Tampa Blind Spot Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Anyone who rides a motorcycle in the Tampa area knows the danger of blind spots. The typical car or truck driver often fails to see a motorcycle to the left or right of their vehicle due to these blind spots. And the result is often a catastrophic collision that kills or seriously injures the motorcyclist.

If you have been the victim of a negligent driver who failed to check their blind spots, Anderson & Anderson can help. We are experienced Tampa blind spot motorcycle accident lawyers. We can help you in demanding compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other damages arising from an avoidable blind spot accident.

Motorists are often quick to try and blame the motorcyclist for a collision. This is especially true when it comes to blind spot accidents. The driver will argue the motorcyclist “must have been weaving in and out of traffic,” leaving them unable to avoid a crash.

But the reality is that four-wheel vehicle drivers often fail to follow basic traffic safety rules when it comes to sharing the road with motorcycles. Some of the common factors we look for when investigating a blind spot motorcycle accident on a client’s behalf include:

  • Did the driver check all of their mirrors just before the crash?
  • Did the driver engage in reckless lane changes or maneuvers to try and get around the motorcycle?
  • Was the driver traveling too fast for the existing road conditions?
  • Was the driver operating their vehicle in an aggressive manner?
  • Was the driver distracted or under the influence of alcohol or drugs?

If you are injured in a blind spot motorcycle accident, it is critical that you call the police. An officer can attend the scene and prepare an official accident report. The police can also assess whether or not the driver broke any laws. All of this information can prove essential if you later need to pursue a claim for compensation in court.

Motorcycle crashes are not covered by Florida’s no-fault auto accident rules. So if you are hurt in a blind spot motorcycle accident, you can directly sue the negligent motorist without having to go through your own insurance carrier first. This allows you to seek compensation for both your out-of-pocket losses as well as non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. Keep in mind, however, that you still need to prove the driver was negligent. Florida law does not presume fault by either party in these cases. And under the state’s new comparative fault rules, your own responsibility for the accident must be considered by a judge or jury if your case goes to court.

This is just one reason you should consult a qualified Tampa blind spot motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible following your crash. Call Anderson & Anderson today at 813-251-0072 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.
