Florida Motorcycle Crashes
Motorists frequently fail to notice motorcycles, resulting in fatal collisions. According to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury. Not only that, but motorcycle riders are 27 times more likely than car passengers to die in a crash. In 2016, 600 motorcycle deaths occurred in Florida, with 409 of them involving another vehicle.
When a motorcycle collides with a car, its protection is limited. This means that, even if they take all reasonable precautions, they will almost certainly sustain more serious injuries if they collide. Motorcycle riders are far more vulnerable than drivers to even the most common road hazards, such as potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads. Riders have a higher risk of serious injury, according to statistics. Riders can be paralyzed, amputated, or disabled for the rest of their lives as a result of motorcycle accidents. Serious collision victims may be eligible for monetary compensation for their losses. Accident victims can recover and rebuild their lives with the help of a knowledgeable Ellenton personal injury lawyer.
