Motorcycle Accident Attorney Orlando

Motorcycle Accident Attorney Orlando

There are more than 500,000 motorcycles registered in the state of Florida, yet motorcyclists still struggle to be seen on the road.

When a cyclist is involved in a crash with a 3,500-lb. vehicle, the results are often devastating, if not fatal. More often than not, the injuries from a motorcycle accident are not whiplash and herniated discs, but road rash, broken limbs, lost limbs, and traumatic brain injuries.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s motorcycle accident statistics, motorcycle accidents are 28 times more likely to be fatal than traditional car accidents.

Unfortunately, many in the legal and justice systems still see motorcyclists as irresponsible risk-takers and may assume that you are the at-fault party. As a result, many of these victims don’t get the representation they deserve from an accident attorney, making it difficult to seek compensation.  

As your Orlando motorcycle accident lawyer, we aren’t just willing to fight for justice on behalf of motorcyclists, we also have the experience and knowledge to win your case and overcome the bias that jurors may harbor against you or your loved one. 

Cars aren’t the only vehicles on the road and Florida’s roads are a dangerous place. At Beers & Gordon, you can trust our law firm to represent your interests and your rights.

We Ride With You

As former insurance company defense attorneys, David Beers and Jim Gordon bring a unique knowledge base into each and every motorcycle accident case. We not only understand exactly how insurance companies value accident claims, we also know the tactics that can sway the case in your favor.

This extensive, in-depth experience has shown us the importance of partnering with top-notch experts—from accident reconstruction to biomechanical experts—to establish our clients’ personal injury claims, recover compensation, and get the justice they deserve.

Motorcycle accidents don’t limit their reach to the hospital or doctors’ offices. If you were recently injured on the road, you are likely experiencing the effects of your accident financially and emotionally as well as physically. At Beers & Gordon, we carefully consider every aspect of your motorcycle accident case so we can seek compensation across all areas of your life.

Any less than that and it’s not really justice.

You Have Rights, Too

All too often, injured victims shy away from filing a lawsuit because they are worried that it will make them seem “greedy.” As a result, they are forced to pay out-of-pocket for ever-growing medical bills or (even worse) avoid seeking medical care entirely.

However, if you paid for insurance coverage on your bike, you deserve to receive it!

Time and time again, we have seen insurance companies do whatever they can to avoid compensating you for the full amount of your losses. We have seen them undervalue or even deny accident claims to protect their bottom line.

Remember, your insurance company has a team of legal professionals whose job it is to represent their interests. You deserve the same.

You Shouldn’t Have to “Settle”

The vast majority of motorcycle accident cases are resolved at the settlement stage, but you shouldn’t allow this fact to push you towards accepting an unfair offer.

At the law firm of Beers & Gordon, we are not here to represent our own self-interests. Our job is to make you aware of all the facts surrounding your rights and we will never urge you to accept an offer that we don’t believe is fair.

Other motorcycle accident attorneys in Orlando urge their clients to settle simply because they are uncomfortable or inexperienced in the courtroom. But at Beers & Gordon, you have the confidence and security of having a board-certified trial attorney on your side.

Past clients have successfully negotiated settlement amounts that were double, triple, or even quadruple the amount initially offered by the insurance company, which goes a long way toward paying their medical bills, lost wages, and compensating for pain and suffering.

When it comes to motorcycle accidents, there’s no such thing as a “fender bender.” Serious accidents call for serious representation and you should never have to settle for less.


Not wearing a helmet will not prevent you from receiving compensation after a motorcycle accident, but it may affect your settlement amount.

Florida’s comparative negligence statute allows injured parties to recover compensation according to the percentage by which they are at-fault. A lack of protective safety gear may place you at-fault (at least partially), since you were not taking steps to prevent your injuries.

The defense must prove that the lack of use of the helmet caused your injuries or contributed to them being worse. So, do not be misled by an insurance company representative or someone else advising you that you have no case because you failed to wear a helmet. 

Working with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you fight for your rights and maximize your settlement amount and prove that failing to wear a helmet did not contribute to your injuries.

Determining who is at-fault for a motorcycle accident is no different than assigning fault in a car accident. However, many people—even some attorneys—harbor a bias against motorcycle operators. If your personal injury case goes to trial, you may even find that the jury is made up of individuals who will automatically believe that you were responsible because you were on a motorcycle. 

Many motorcycles sound faster than they are moving because of the way that they are manufactured. So, some motorists assume a motorcycle was exceeding the speed limit when the evidence shows that they were not. It is important to discover these biases. 

One of the jobs of your attorney is to identify those jurors that have an inherent bias and keep them off the jury. Many jurors will admit to having a bias against motorcyclists because they feel that most drive recklessly. With the proper questions asked and truthful responses, the attorney should be able to demonstrate the bias to the judge. That should assist the Court in keeping those people from serving in your case. 

Biases like this are exactly why hiring an experienced motorcycle accident attorney is so important. As your lawyer, the experts at Beers & Gordon will act as your representatives, helping to level the playing field so you receive fair compensation.

In order to estimate how much to expect from your accident, your attorney will need a thorough understanding of the details of your specific case. The type and extent of your injuries, your medical treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, and insurance coverage will all play a role in the value of your case.

While you are unable to control most of these factors, the one thing you can do to increase the likelihood of a fair settlement is to work with an attorney who is experienced in motorcycle accident cases, such as Beers & Gordon.

Unlike car accident cases, motorcycles usually do not have PIP insurance available for treatment. Therefore, you do not have $10,000 of available benefits for medical care. You must use your health insurance or make other arrangements with the provider such as agreeing to pay the treater’s balance from any settlement or verdict.

Additionally, unless you are able to tie your motorcycle insurance to your car insurance, you will not have underinsured motorist coverage. This is additional coverage that will compensate you for your injuries beyond the coverage of the at fault party. Thus, motorcycle cases often have limited coverage available.

One of the major differences between such cases is the amount of insurance available to the injured party for treatment and other potential damages. 

Another difference with motorcycle cases is that the injuries are usually much more devastating to the driver of the bike compared to the vehicle. Broken bones and scarring are seen in many motorcycle accidents. It is much more common to see permanent and life altering injuries in motorcycle crashes.
