Motorcycle Crashes in Florida

Seffner, FL - Motorcyclist Injured in Accident at MLK Blvd & Orange StIn Florida, riders are well aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle. Motorcycle riders are 27 times more likely than passenger car passengers to die in an accident, with more than 80% of motorcycle collisions resulting in death or disability. Wearing a helmet reduces the risk of death by about 37%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Florida, there were 600 motorcycle deaths in 2016, with 409 of them involving another vehicle.

When a motorcycle collides with a car, it has limited protection. This means that even if they follow all of the necessary safety precautions, they will almost certainly sustain more serious injuries in the event of a collision. Even the most common road hazards, such as potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads, pose a far greater risk to motorcycle riders than they do to drivers. Riders have a higher risk of serious injury, according to statistics. Motorcycle accidents can leave riders paralyzed, amputees, or disabled for the rest of their lives. Following a serious collision, victims may be entitled to compensation for their losses. Accident victims can recover and rebuild their lives with the help of a knowledgeable Seffner personal injury lawyer.
