Florida, with its fresh air and beautiful scenery, is a perfect state for motorcycle riders. However, sharing the roads with other vehicles puts motorcyclists in a vulnerable position. According to the Department of Highway Safety, motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely to die in a traffic crash than a car passenger. In 2012, nearly 50,000 motorcyclists were killed in motorcycle accidents. Another 93,000 motorcyclists were injured.

Many accidents occur because a driver does not see a motorcycle until it is too late. Since motorcycles are smaller than cars, drivers should be extra aware of motorcyclists. Motorcyclists themselves should also take precautions. They should not drive in a vehicle’s blind spot, or dangerously switch lanes. However, even with increased awareness, accidents still occur, and can be devastating for motorcycle riders.

Common injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Road rash
  • Amputations
  • Injuries to internal organs
  • Soft tissues injuries

The consequences of a motorcycle accident can go far beyond just injuries. The injured person may have to deal with expensive medical bills or lost wages. If a victim suffers severe and permanent injuries, their family also takes on new responsibilities. A motorcycle accident can impact many people, and the results can be catastrophic.

Injured?

If you sustain injuries in a motorcycle accident, do not talk to an insurance representative until you have consulted with an attorney. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer is always important in determining your rights and responsibilities according to the law.
