Florida Motorcycle Crash Lawyer in Palm Beach Discusses Rights of Family following a Fatal Motorcycle Accident
Florida Motorcycles, scooters and bicycles have the same right of way that cars do. Although many motorcycle riders apply defensive riding techniques, sometimes they fall victim to inattentive drivers of cars and trucks. Florida motorcycle accidents often occur when a car or truck driver fails to observe the motorcycle and does not yield the right of way. Left turning cars and trucks or vehicles changing lanes are a major source of serious motorcycle crash injuries and fatalities. After the fact, the car and truck drivers try to blame the motorcyclist by claiming that the bike was speeding and came out of nowhere. The truth is often that the motorcycle was there to be seen the whole time, but the driver was not paying attention or misjudged the distance.
An experienced Florida motorcycle injury lawyer can help you following a motorcycle crash caused by another driver's failure to yield to the right of way. While each motorcycle accident will have a unique set of facts and circumstances, there are some common and recurring elements in fail to yield motorcycle crashes.

In Florida, when a motorcyclist is killed as a result of the actions or negligence of another person, the surviving members of the deceased’s family can pursue a claim for wrongful death. These are claims against another party for negligence. As long as the other vehicle had insurance at the time of the accident, the claims will typically be investigated, defended and paid by the insurance company.
