Visibility, Stability And The Likelihood Of Fatal Injuries In Florida
The climate in Florida and many other southern states makes them prime spots for year-round motorcycle riding. As a result, these states often have a higher percentage of motorcycle accidents.
Attorney representation is crucial for individuals who have suffered a motorcycle injury. Because motorcycles require a great deal of training, familiarity and defensive driving skills than the average passenger vehicle, insurance companies often view motorcyclists at fault when an injury has occurred.
The truth is, many factors may be at play in the cause of a motorcycle accident, such as:
- Driver error: Motorcycles are more easily overlooked on the road purely because of their size. One instance of failing to check a blind spot or texting while driving can result in serious injuries, including fatalities, when a driver changes lanes without being vigilant in looking for others on the road.
- Dangerous road conditions: Potholes, debris, slippery conditions and uneven surfaces can damage any vehicle, but they can be devastating for a motorcyclist as they change direction suddenly to avoid the hazard or are forced to contact debris head-on.
- Reckless driving: Overcorrecting on a motorcycle is easy to do when another driver has put you in danger by slamming on the brakes, weaving in and out of traffic, or speeding. These behaviors often force motorcycle drivers to stop suddenly or lay down the bike, ultimately causing devastating physical trauma in the process.
If your injury was the result of a motorcycle accident that another driver caused, you could have a personal injury claim on your hands. Do not let the at-fault party’s insurance company attempt to thwart liability by placing the blame on you.
