Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation, but can also be the source of devastating injuries. Although riding experience and the proper safety gear can help to decrease the likelihood of causing an accident, motorcycle riders are still at risk of injury, especially if other drivers fail to observe the rules of the road and drive in a responsible manner. At Winston Law Firm, we ride too. Attorneys Bradley Winston and Christopher Wigand all understand the freedom and enjoyment that comes from riding a motorcycle.
Motorcycle attorney Brad Winston has been riding motorized bikes since childhood. Like many riders, he progressed from lawnmower-powered mini bikes as a small child through dirt bikes, café racers in the 70’s and 80’s to almost all kinds of Harley Davidson and sport bikes. He rides regularly on a home built [rat] hard tail, a 2001 Yamaha FZR1000, and has many off-road vehicles, dirt bikes, and quads.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles do not provide as much protection as other vehicles, and riders may be at risk of serious injuries even in seemingly minor accidents. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk Drivers
- Municipal Negligence
- Motorcycle Defect
- Reckless Drivers
If the driver of a car, truck , or other vehicle fails to observe the posted speed limit or follow other rules of the road, he or she may put others at unnecessary risk of injury. Motorcycle riders especially face the risk of serious injuries if an accident occurs, and if the accident was caused by the reckless actions of another, they may be able to take legal action against those responsible.
A Note From Brad
I ride the Yamaha when I want to go fast, and I ride the Harley when I go out with my friends. Almost all of my dirt bikes are at a place where we can ride safely across open land for days on end.
I understand motorcycle crashes because I have been in a few of them myself.
I know how accidents can happen. Even if the rider could have been going slower, or did something that makes him feel partly at fault, usually someone else, or the bike itself, has contributed to the accident. That’s where we come in.
