Why Choose Farah & Farah?
At Farah & Farah, we know how to help injured motorcyclists. We know how collisions with passenger vehicles occur and where to look for evidence.

- Recover the pre-accident value of your motorcycle

Proving Your Motorcycle Accident Case
In Jacksonville, you are required to prove that your motorcycle accident and subsequent injuries were caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else. If the other motorist acted in a way that could be perceived as negligent or reckless, you could be entitled to compensation.
Some of the actions that typically show negligence include:
- Driving at excessive speeds
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Failure to maintain a safe vehicle
Why Should You Hire a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
The unfortunate truth is that anytime you deal with an insurance company or large corporation, you are at a disadvantage. These organizations have deep pockets and are actively working to protect their bottom lines. Insurance companies will always work to devalue your claim and avoid liability. A law firm like Farah & Farah can compel them to treat you fairly while allowing you to focus on recovery.
At the same time, motorcycle accidents can be extremely complex and liability for the accident may fall on more than one party. While drivers are most often the negligent party, liability can also fall on product or vehicle manufacturers, municipalities and companies in charge of road maintenance and even those who designed and constructed the roadway. Our motorcycle accident attorneys will examine all the facts of your case and pursue the maximum verdict or settlement on your behalf for your injuries.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are relatively common in Florida. In 2015, no U.S. state recorded more fatalities from motorcycle accidents than Florida (577). What’s more unfortunate is that fatalities or injuries caused by motorcycle accidents are preventable. Many motorists out there don’t look for motorcyclists, who have just as much right to the road.
If you are struck by a passenger vehicle, you are at the mercy of gravity and the objects and vehicles around you. Even if you are wearing a helmet and other safety gear, you, as the motorcyclist, are much more likely to suffer serious injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Severe spinal injuries
- Severe lacerations
