This accident is just one of many that take place on and off of Florida roads and highways that involve motorcycles. The reason that motorcycle injuries can result in such serious injuries is that the only thing that stands between the rider and concrete is usually a helmet. While a helmet is a good safety measure, it cannot and does not protect a rider or occupant from all injuries and can only prevent or reduce head injuries in some motorcycle accidents but certainly not all accidents.
