How Common Are Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycle accidents occur with alarming frequency in the United States, including in Florida, where many crashes happen as a result of negligent or wrongful conduct.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ 2018 Crash Facts Report, there were:

Because they are relatively unprotected, motorcyclists are highly vulnerable to catastrophic injuries and fatalities when they are hit by larger, heavier vehicles, like cars and trucks. Unfortunately, motorcyclists also often face an uphill battle when it comes to recovering compensation.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

If you have been in a motorcycle accident in Jacksonville, Florida, it’s important to take the right steps to protect yourself and your legal rights.

Try to keep these tips in mind after being in a motorcycle accident:

Challenges in Motorcycle Accident Cases

Whether you suffered a herniated or slipped disc in a car accident or your loved one became paralyzed after a serious fall, you are likely facing a significant number of new and unexpected challenges. The cost of treating a spinal cord injury can easily exceed hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over the course of the victim’s lifetime, and many victims will be unable to return to work—or obtain any gainful employment to support themselves or their families. Victims often require wheelchairs and in-home caregivers, and many will suffer chronic pain and numerous other complications due to their injuries.
Additionally, Florida motorcyclists over the age of 21 are not required to wear motorcycle helmets as long as they have the appropriate insurance coverage. However, although it is not against the law, not wearing a helmet can be used against you. The insurance company may argue that not wearing a helmet is a form of negligence on your part, thereby limiting or negating their liability. This is especially true when the motorcyclist does not have the required insurance to legally ride without a helmet.
Motorcyclists are also highly likely to sustain very serious injuries when they are involved in motor vehicle accidents. These injuries often require extensive, ongoing medical treatment and can put victims out of work for weeks or months. In some cases, a rider’s injuries may even be disabling, preventing them from ever returning to work or enjoying the same quality of life they once did. It takes a skilled attorney to effectively demonstrate the full extent of your injuries, including your future damages.
