We Take Your Injury Personally Work With An Attorney Who Has Extensive Experience With Motorcycle Accident Cases

Facts About Motorcycle Accidents

Our Tallahassee Personal Injury Attorney Has the Skill You Need

Motorcycle operators and riders often suffer severe injuries when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. Even when wearing a helmet, the injuries sustained by motorcycle accident victims can be catastrophic. That is why anyone injured in a motorcycle accident should get information about important motorcycle accident facts from an attorney experienced in these types of cases.

Seeking the counsel of an experienced attorney will help to ensure that victims receive full compensation for their injuries. At Shapiro Law Firm, P.A. our Tallahassee personal injury lawyer is well-versed in the law surrounding motorcycle accidents, and we are prepared to aggressively pursue compensation on behalf of accident victims.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Here are a few motorcycle accident facts from Paul Shapiro, an experienced attorney at Shapiro Law Firm:

  • Motorcycle operators make up nearly 14 percent of all traffic fatalities and 4 percent of all passengers injured in motor vehicle accidents.

  • Nearly 2/3 of all motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle result from the vehicle's driver not seeing the motorcyclist.

  • In Florida, only 44 percent of the motorcyclists killed in vehicle accidents were wearing helmets.

Tips For Staying Safe On Your Motorcycle

  • Wear a helmet. Not only could wearing a helmet save your life, but it can also prevent debilitating injuries to your brain if you survive the accident.

  • Don’t drive drunk. This should be a fairly obvious one. If you are drunk, your sense of judgment could be severely impaired, making it more likely that you will get into an accident.

  • Follow all driving rules. The number of deaths associated with motorcycle speeding is higher than for any other type of vehicle accident associated with speeding.

  • Watch for hazards. Potholes, cracks, bumps, and oncoming traffic can be dangerous for you and your motorcycle. In addition, inclement weather conditions such as rain, sleet and snow can increase your chances of being involved in a crash.

Often, the driver of the motor vehicle involved in the motorcycle crash will argue that the motorcycle rider would not have been injured, or the injuries wouldn't have been as serious, if he or she would have been wearing a helmet. Even if you were not wearing a helmet, however, you may still be able to receive compensation for your injuries in Florida.
