Fatal Motorcycle Crashes in Florida
Many motorists fail to keep an eye out for 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 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. Accident victims can recover and rebuild their lives with the help of a skilled Tampa personal injury lawyer.
