You want to make sure you do your research. The internet is used by everybody for information, so you should do it and go to the websites that talk about lawyers and their credentials, like Martindale-Hubble, Avvo, and find out information about your attorney.
Motorcycle Accident Questions | What if a Hazardous Road Caused My Accident?
We’ve had a couple of clients in the past five years who have sustained injuries because the road was not properly maintained. In the example with our client, the road wasn’t maintained and it was allowed to build up furrows or indentation marks that retained water so that when it rained it made it more difficult for a driver to stop. In those circumstances, you have a cause of action against the county or the government. There are limitations in damages that you can recover from the county, and also the driver has to be observant of those conditions on the roadway and take appropriate action for them.
Motorcycle Accident Questions | What Compensation Can I Get?
If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident in the state of Florida, you can receive compensation for all of your damages. There are different kinds of damages for different injuries.

If you have children and can’t take care of them and can’t pick them up, those are damages that you can also recover for in your lawsuit.
