Seeking Representation From a Pompano Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Charles Bell is one of the partners at Bell & Bell, P.A. He represents injured riders in South Florida, communicating with insurance companies and building cases. As an avid motorcycle rider for more than 25 years, he understands the dangers involved with riding, including distracted car and truck drivers, and poorly marked signage.

Charles was just 16 years old when he got on a motorcycle for the first time—and he purchased his first bike two years later. He is familiar with the stereotype many people have that motorcycle riders are reckless risk-takers, and he understands how to argue against it in court.

The majority of motorcycle riders choose to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), or motorcycle gear, for added protection. Most states have helmet laws. In Florida, for example, a helmet is required unless the driver is older than 21 and has a minimum medical insurance policy of $10,000.

There are two kinds of helmets: full-face helmets and the lesser-safe 3/4 or 1/2 helmets. In addition to helmets, examples of PPE include:

  • Jackets
  • Gloves
  • Pants
  • Boots
  • Vests
  • Ear plugs

PPE often comes in bright colors with retroreflective strips that attract the attention of other drivers. Some PPE also serves as weather protection and impact protection in case of a crash, depending on the materials. Some vests and jackets utilize airbag system technology for impact and accident protection.

Motorcycle manufacturers are introducing new safety equipment to protect riders from injury. Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) reduce the risk of skidding when stopping suddenly. Crash bars can protect the rider’s legs in a rollover accident, and headlight modulators turn motorcycle lights on automatically so that drivers see the bike on the road.

It can be helpful to find a Deerfield Beach accident attorney with motorcycle case experience.  If you would like a free consultation with a Deerfield Beach motorcycle accident lawyer, call Bell & Bell, P.A. today!
