Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Motorcyclists are more exposed to the dangers of the road than those traveling in sedans or trucks. In 2016, there were 600 fatal motorcycle accidents in Florida, of which 191 were single-vehicle collisions and 409 included another vehicle. Around 69.9% of fatal motorcycle accidents included two vehicles colliding head-on.
Whether you ride for recreation or to go to and from work, doing so on a motorcycle is an enjoyable and time-saving mode of transportation. On the other hand, because they have less protection in the case of an accident, motorcyclists are put in a more precarious position than drivers of automobiles. Accidents involving motorcycles often have particularly gruesome outcomes and can cause a wide range of injuries to those involved. You need to take steps to safeguard your legal rights if a motorbike accident has left you or a member of your family harmed.
