Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Florida has the nation’s fourth-highest rate of motorcycle accidents. This might be attributed in part to the fact that the weather in Florida is perfect for motorcycle riding all year. In 2017, 590 persons were killed in motorcycle accidents, compared to 515 in 2016. The bulk of people murdered were riders, although 30 passengers were also killed in the crashes.
Motorcycle crashes are devastating to all those involved. Because there is no barrier or protection available, the damages caused by a motorbike accident are generally more severe than those caused by a vehicle accident. In terms of compensation, motorcyclists have the same legal rights as car drivers.
