Are Motorcycle Riders Reckless?

Motorcycle accidents can happen for several reasons. In many cases, these accidents are not caused by motorcyclists. For example, our firm is currently working on a case involving a defective motorcycle gas system that causes the vehicle to slow down and speed up without warning. Motorcycle accidents may also be caused by drivers who collide with motorcyclists. Florida law requires motorcyclists to receive a special endorsement, meaning they likely know how to use motorcycles safely.

In this video, attorney Julie Kane discusses possible steps to take after being involved in a bicycle accident. For example, it is important to cooperate with law enforcement when they arrive at the scene. If you can, you should also speak to the other driver immediately after a bike accident. However, many bicyclists are severely injured and may be incapable of talking to the authorities or witnesses. If so, then our lawyers work to identify as many witnesses as possible and get this information on your behalf.

The consequences of distracted driving, particularly texting while driving, have been devastating in Florida and the entire country. In this video, attorney Julie Braman Kane explains that teenagers must understand that it only takes a split second to cause a distracted driving car accident that seriously injures or kills an innocent person. Parents should speak to their children and refrain from texting while driving themselves to set an example. Video Transcription: I’m the mother of a 16-year-old. He drives. He got his license almost a year ago. Kids think they’re invincible and they believe that nothing can ever happen to them.

Does Being a Former Federal Prosecutor Affect Your Personal Injury Practice?

In this video, attorney Curt Miner explains how his work as a former federal prosecutor is similar, in many ways, to the practice of personal injury law. Both practices involve holding responsible parties accountable for actions or inactions that have harmed innocent people. Video Transcription: I think there’s a lot in common between being a federal prosecutor and being a plaintiff’s lawyer, like I am now. As a federal prosecutor, you are the one who’s responsible for building a case. You have the burden of proof. You have to prove that someone else did something wrong. As your prosecutor, you’re trying to prove someone committed a crime, and as a prosecutor you’re trying to right a wrong, you’re trying to do justice. I think a lot of that’s true as a plaintiff’s lawyer, too. The burden is on you. You have to put together the case. You have to muster…
