Deadly Motorcycle Crashes 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, and 409 of these accidents involve another vehicle.
When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, it can be devastating. Unexpected expenses and other damages are common for the family of a deceased victim. Survivors’ family members frequently express frustration and helplessness. Their sense of betrayal is heightened by the fact that their financial situation is rapidly deteriorating. It’s understandable that surviving family members want to file a wrongful death claim with the help of a Pinellas Park motorcycle accident lawyer in order to hold those who caused their loved one’s death accountable.
