Motorcycle Accidents in Florida

Clearwater, FL - Two Injured After Motorcycle Crash at Court St & Myrtle AveThe dangers of riding a motorcycle are well known in Florida. Motorcycle riders are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than passenger car passengers, with more than 80% of motorcycle accidents resulting in death or disability. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wearing a helmet reduces the risk of death by about 37%. In 2016, 600 motorcycle deaths occurred in Florida, with 409 of them involving another vehicle.

Motorcyclists have limited protection when colliding with a motor vehicle. This means that even if they follow the appropriate safety procedures they are almost certain to suffer more severe injuries in the event of a crash. Even the most common road hazards, such as potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads, are a far larger risk to motorcyclists than to drivers. Statistics show that riders are at a higher risk of serious injury. Motorcycle accidents can leave riders paralyzed, amputees, or with other lifelong disabilities. Victims may be entitled to compensation for their losses following a serious collision. A skilled Clearwater personal injury attorney can help accident victims recover and rebuild their lives.
