A motorcycle accident can impact a person’s life in profound, often permanent ways. It can cause serious, lasting injuries such as broken limbs and internal damage, along with potentially permanent nervous system effect, such as brain damage or a spinal cord injury. Motorcycle crashes can also result in long-term scarring and disfigurement due to severe scrapes and scratches due to road rash. Too often, distracted and negligent drivers cause motorcycle accidents that could have been easily prevented. If you were the victim of a serious motorcycle crash in Florida due to the negligence of others, contact the lawyers at Freedland Harwin Valori Gander, PL for legal counsel. We can help you fight for fair compensation.
The Devastating Nature of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are inherently vulnerable on the road, with very little protection from the road or other vehicles. Injuries are commonly severe, and often can be catastrophic or fatal. If victims survive motorcycle crashes, medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs can be steep – not to mention the physical pain and emotional suffering of such a major accident. Some of the most common motorcycle-related injuries are:
- Head and traumatic brain injury. Florida law requires helmets for riders under the age of 21. If over the age of 21, riders can bypass the helmet requirement by taking out insurance policies providing for at least $10,000 in injury coverage. Please note that, even with a helmet, there is a high risk of head injuries in motorcycle crashes.
- Broken bones. Broken bones, commonly occur in the legs and feet. The lower extremities are at risk for injuries due to striking other vehicles or the road. Broken bones can be very painful, require lengthy surgeries and rehab if severe, and result in a prolonged disability that may even be permanent.
- Spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries can render a rider paralyzed with no sensation or ability of movement in their extremities. Spinal cord injuries can occur if riders are thrown from their motorcycles, pinned beneath either vehicle, or crushed beneath a vehicle. There is currently no cure for serious spine injuries, and can drastically affect your quality of life negatively.
Lacerations, abrasions, bruising, and soft tissue injuries are also common in motorcycle collisions. Many survivors are never the same after a bad motorcycle crash. Even those who recover physically can suffer post-traumatic stress disorder and emotional distress or anguish, requiring therapy or rehabilitation. At Freedland Harwin Valori Gander, PL, we fight for victims who have been severely affected by those who were acting negligently. It’s our mission to secure the best possible compensation for injured motorcyclists in Florida.

I met Dan when I was in therapy and he came and right away it felt like a family member visiting you, a connection, like a brother. He’s been on both sides of the fence. He’s represented the hospitals and the doctors, and then he jumped over to the other side. It is a fantastic group, it was like Bell Belichick leading the team. They changed my life and still check on me. I recommend FHV to anybody and they thank me.
I met Dan about a year ago. He never made me feel that it was about the money. When he spoke with me he was asking how Bill (my brother) was and if he was doing better. He made me feel like family and always asked if I was alright. That means a lot. Everyday is something new and I challenge for my brother. I would recommend [FHV] to everybody because I really believe that they’re helping from their hearts… from a really good place.
For anyone to represent anyone for 5 years and take the time to do it, not once just “get it out of the way” and “get it done with”. It was about what was best for Hunter and our family. It was about the case and the people.
