Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
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 loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, it can be devastating. For the family of a deceased victim, unexpected expenses and other damages are common. Family members of survivors frequently express frustration and helplessness. The fact that their financial situation is rapidly deteriorating adds to their sense of betrayal. It is only natural for surviving family members to want to hold those responsible for their loved one’s death accountable by filing a wrongful death claim with the assistance of a Palmetto personal injury attorney.
