According to the federal government, per mile traveled in 2013, the number of deaths on motorcycles was more than 26 times the number in cars. In 2013, 4,668 people died in motorcycle crashes and 88,000 motorcyclists were injured.
Many Florida motorcycle accidents happen because car drivers fail to see motorcycles or fail to understand how a motorcycle operates differently than a vehicle. Unfortunately, when a motorcycle accident occurs, it can cause severe injuries and even death. After a motorcycle crash, it is important to have an attorney on your side who understands the impact a motorcycle accident can have on the motorcyclist and his or her family.
Sadly, when a person is injured in a motorcycle accident, their injuries are far worse than someone injured in a car accident. The motorcyclist is often the one who must absorb the force of the accident and is not protected by the steel and frame of an automobile accident. Instead of hitting the back of a seat or a headrest, the motorcyclist often hits the concrete and can hit their head on the pavement. This is why it is so important that a person involved in a motorcycle accident has an attorney who understand Florida law and personal injury.
