Pensacola Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Serving Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable for Motorcycle Accident Injuries
While the most common cause of motorcycle accidents may be driver negligence, a shockingly large number of motorcycle crashes are caused by poorly maintained roadways or malfunctioning traffic control systems. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident that you feel was caused by a poorly maintained roadway, it is important to consult an attorney immediately to begin planning your case for compensation.
With more than 35 years of experience, our Pensacola motorcycle accident attorneys at the law office of Michael J. Griffith, P.A. have the knowledge and skills needed to help you pursue compensation for losses resulting from ill repaired roadways. On your behalf, we will carefully build your case in an effort to obtain leverage during the settlement negotiation or court trial process.
Contact Our Office Immediately After the Accident
While it can be difficult to think to contact an attorney after you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, getting us involved immediately greatly improves your chances of recovering compensation for your losses. At the very least, make sure to take clear photos of the roadway or defect that led to the accident.
Our staff will begin the process of gathering all evidence, including photographs, police reports and witness statements. We will also consult an expert accident reconstructionist to recreate the events leading to your accident. We’ll even look for publicly filed complaints relating to the disrepair of the roadway or traffic device in question to prove that the city, county or state was aware of the situation.
All information gained during our thorough investigation will then be used to aggressively negotiate a settlement that covers your losses, or to pursue a judgment on your behalf in court. This approach has proven successful for a number of clients injured in accidents caused by a wide range of roadway defects, including:
- Loose gravel or asphalt
- Improperly controlled intersections
- Malfunctioning traffic lights
