Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Gainesville
Do you know how to determine liability following a catastrophic motorcycle crash?
If not, you may face difficult obstacles in seeking compensation for damages or injuries. No doubt motorcycles are a lot of fun to ride and they can save money at the gas pump, too. But according to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, sunny states like Florida are more apt to have a higher annual rate of motorcycle accidents. To make matters worse, both law enforcement and insurance investigators are often quick to assume that you (the motorcyclist) was at fault. That means it can be imperative to find a legal advocate who will fight for your rights as a biker. Since injuries are not always immediately apparent, always seek the appropriate emergency medical attention and seek the advice of legal counsel without delay.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our lawyers work with experts to identify the actual cause for the motorcycle crash to include:
- Motorist Negligence
- Manufacturing Errors
- Failed Safety Products
- Unsafe Road Conditions
- Reckless or Aggressive Driving
- Defective Motorcycle Parts

Even though you may have taken all the recommended safety precautions, rarely will you and your passenger emerge unscathed. Since motorcycle accident cases invariably involve complex legal issues and multiple factors can contribute to the cause, determining all sources of liability can be tricky. Any bike crash must be thoroughly investigated and reconstructed to determine how motorist negligence, a defective part, poor manufacturer's design or hazardous road conditions may have resulted in a motorcyclist's personal injuries or death.
