Thousands of people in the United States are seriously injured or killed in motorcycle accidents every year. And just like boating accidents, Florida is either #1 or close to #1 every year in the number of motorcycle accidents according to the governor’s highway safety association. If you’re involved in a motorcycle accident, the odds of being seriously injured or killed are significantly greater than traveling in a car due to the lack of protection. According to the national highway traffic safety administration, in 2017 while motorcycles only made up about 3% of registered vehicles, motorcycle accidents were responsible for 14% of traffic fatalities. Being involved in a motorcycle accident is serious business.
Using safety measures to prevent motorcycle accidents is important, but it’s also important to protect yourself even after you’ve been involved in an accident. Make sure you consult with an attorney if you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident.
