Tampa Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles are a beloved pastime in the Tampa area, and many city residents enjoy hitting the road on their bike. Unfortunately, these vehicles leave riders extremely exposed to the dangers of the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 80% of motorcycle crashes end in death or injury, and motorcyclists are roughly 27 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in the event of an accident.
Motorcyclists, even when they follow the necessary safety protocol, have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle, meaning that the resulting injuries are almost certain to be more severe. Even the most common road hazards like potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads are a much greater risk for riders than drivers, leaving motorcyclists at greater risk of being seriously injured. Florida motorcycle crashes can leave riders paralyzed, as amputees, or with other types of permanent disability, and victims of these accidents may be entitled to lost compensation.
