Aggressive Palm Harbor Advocate Handles Motorcycle Accident Cases

Proven Gulf Coast lawyer helps bikers pick up the pieces after a crash in Florida

Motorcycles provide a sense of freedom and power. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can be much more dangerous than car crashes when the rubber leaves the road. Swerving slightly to avoid a vehicle or an inattentive driver behind you can send you soaring through the air. At the Law Office of Paul B. Genet, P.A. in Palm Harbor, we understand the thrill that riding affords, especially on long, open stretches of Florida’s coastal roads. Unfortunately, we are also too familiar with the dangers faced by motorcyclists who share Florida roads with 12.5 million drivers. Our firm has delivered strong advice and advocacy to motorcycle accident victims since 1991, so we know that these accidents can happen a block from your house, in a store parking lot, or out on the highway. When you are injured in an accident, you need an accomplished Gulf Coast attorney. Paul Genet can get the facts that prove your case.

Tough attorney provides sound advice to motorcycle collision victims

To be reimbursed for your motorcycle loss, bodily injuries and emotional suffering, you must prove that negligence was involved. Attorney Paul Genet has successfully represented personal injury and wrongful death clients for three decades. Starting with a free initial consultation, we will explain each legal aspect of your case, including:

  • Potential causes — Whether your crash was caused by a drunk driver, bad weather, road conditions or a faulty part, we will find the responsible parties and hold them to account.
  • Comparative negligence — Many riders are hurt because car and truck drivers fail to see them or refuse to honor their road rights. However, even if you are partly responsible for the accident, you can still recover damages based on Florida’s comparative negligence law. This rule states that a plaintiff’s award is reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to them. So, if you’ve suffered $100,000 in damages and are held to be 20 percent responsible for the accident, you will receive $80,000.
  • Statute of limitations — After motorcycle or auto accidents, victims have four years to file a lawsuit, but it is always best to act as quickly as possible so crucial evidence can be gathered.
  • Biased attitudes against bikers — An additional challenge exists in seeking damages for injured bikers, and that challenge stems from common biases held by other motorists that bikers are difficult to see, ride too fast, and engage in reckless behavior. We are experienced in countering those assumptions to ensure your rights to full compensation are protected.

In all motorcycle crash litigation, we investigate the circumstances, assess the damages and build a strong, persuasive case detailing why you should receive compensation for your injuries and losses.
