Car vs. Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders must share the roadways with motor vehicles that are bigger and heavier and do a better job of protecting their occupants in a collision. Even motorcyclists who wear personal protective gear and are careful and observant motorcycle operators can be seriously injured in a collision with a car or other type motor vehicle because they are more physically exposed and more vulnerable to injury than those in an enclosed vehicle.
The experienced Orlando auto accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., have the knowledge and resources available to obtain police reports, medical records, and expert witness testimony to ensure you get fair and just financial compensation for injuries suffered in a car vs. motorcycle accident.

- Do not admit fault
- Contact an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney

Causes of Car vs. Motorcycle Accidents
One of the primary causes of car vs. motorcycle accidents is the failure of motor vehicle drivers to see a motorcycle in traffic. Intersections are the most frequent location of car vs. motorcycle accidents. The millions of tourists visiting Florida annually, who are unfamiliar with the roadways and excited about visiting, contribute to motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted drivers in unfamiliar surroundings. Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, road and weather hazards, defective equipment, the failure to yield the right of way, and improper lane changing are contributing factors to motorcycle accidents that involve another vehicle.
Car vs. Motorcycle Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries
Car vs. motorcycle accident injuries have a history of being catastrophic and usually involve fractures and broken bones, soft tissue trauma, limb amputations, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and even wrongful death. These catastrophic injuries cause overwhelming physical, emotional and financial burdens for the injured and their loved ones. You and your loved ones may be eligible for financial compensation for medical expenses, loss of present and future income, rehabilitation expenses, and in the tragic event of a death, the survivors are entitled to benefits, also.
