Florida Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most deadly traffic accidents. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists travel almost totally unprotected. When involved in collisions, the force of larger, faster-moving vehicles can prove to be catastrophic and sometimes deadly for riders. Florida is one of the states in the US with the most motorcycle deaths reported each year. This could be due to the year-round warm weather and scenic views.
Motorcycles are approximately 30 times more likely to become involved in accidents than passenger vehicles. In 2019, over 5,000 people lost their lives in motorcycle collisions in the United States, and approximately 84,000 people were seriously injured in these wrecks.
