Motorcycle accidents are much more likely to result in catastrophic injuries or death. In fact, over 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury. In Florida, over 550 people are killed every year in motorcycle accidents, which is almost 20 percent of all motor vehicle deaths in the state.
As with any traffic accident, if you are involved in a motorcycle crash you should notify police, seek medical attention, get contact information for everyone involved including witnesses, record your recollection of everything that happened as soon as possible and consult with a Florida personal injury attorney.
If you have been the victim of a Florida motorcycle accident, you should also hold off on any repairs to your motorcycle until you have spoken with an attorney. You should also keep a careful record of all expenses related to the accident as well as time off work.
