Deadly 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.
It can be devastating when a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence. 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.
