Over 5,000 people are killed each year in motorcycle accidents, and many more are seriously injured. Unfortunately, Florida has more of these fatalities and injuries than any other state in the country.
When you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, you need immediate medical attention and support. To get the compensation you need, help from an experienced personal injury attorney may be necessary. The personal injury attorneys of the Davila Law Group have years of experience helping accident victims get compensated fairly for their injuries, lost wages, pain, and suffering and want to help you.
Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries
Many motorcycle accidents happen when a car is making a left-hand turn and the driver does not see the motorcycle on his left. Others occur due to impaired driving, disobeying traffic laws or signs, debris in the road, uneven or damaged roads, poor weather conditions, driver errors or inexperience, and mechanical failures.
Although alcohol is a factor in about half of all motorcycle accidents, motorcyclists are often not responsible for causing a crash. They can get seriously injured because of another driver’s negligence or in the manufacturing of the vehicle.
Because motorcycles don’t provide the same kind of protection as automobiles, motorcycle crashes usually result in more severe injuries than those from car accidents. Head-on collisions can result in a fatality, and even when the injuries are not fatal, they are much more likely to be life-threatening and life-altering, such as brain injuries, spinal injuries, serious bone fractures, and serious lacerations.
Given the serious nature of these injuries, it is important to get help from experienced motorcycle accident attorneys to obtain fair compensation for necessary medical treatment, therapies and equipment, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
In Florida, motorcyclists are supposed to have at least $10,000 in medical coverage. In addition, extending uninsured motorist coverage to your motorcycle is a good idea to ensure that if you are hit and injured by an uninsured motorist, there will be insurance funds available to help you.
Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions you take, both when riding and when insuring your ride, as a motorcyclist, you are very vulnerable to being seriously injured and not getting the compensation you need from your insurance company to pay for necessary medical care and related problems. In fact, all too often victims of motorcycle injury crashes are further victimized by their own insurance companies.
