Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Motorcycles are frequently overlooked by motorists, resulting in fatal collisions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent data, approximately 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury. Not only that, but motorcycle riders are 27 times more likely to die in a crash than car passengers. In Florida, there were 600 motorcycle deaths in 2016, with 409 of them involving another vehicle.
A motorcycle’s protection is limited when it collides with a car. This means that, even if they take all necessary precautions, they will almost certainly suffer more serious injuries in the event of a collision. Even the most common road hazards, such as potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads, put motorcycle riders in far more danger than drivers. According to statistics, riders have a higher risk of serious injury. Motorcycle accidents can paralyze, amputate, or disable riders for the rest of their lives. Victims of serious collisions may be entitled to financial compensation for their losses. With the help of a skilled Largo personal injury attorney, accident victims can recover and rebuild their lives.
