Report: Florida most dangerous state for motorcyclists

Last month was Motorcycle Safety Awareness month in Florida, however, it is clear from accident statistics that motorists must be safety conscious about motorcycles throughout the year. In much of the country, motorcycles are only a factor on roads during warmer months. However, Florida's mild weather means that motorcycles share the roads with other vehicles year-round.

Motorcycle accident claims life of rider in Tampa area

Legal resources protect victims and their families in different situations following a motorcycle accident. A fatal Tampa area motorcycle accident recently left the motorcycle rider dead. The recent motorcycle accident occurred when a turning motor vehicle collided with the motorcycle. The motorcyclist died at the scene of the accident. The motorcycle accident occurred at an intersection which remained closed following the accident. Authorities are investigating the accident.

Legal resources protect motorcycle accident victims


Motorcycle riders can be especially vulnerable on the roadways which is why they have important legal protections to consider if they have been harmed by another party's carelessness in a motorcycle accident. Victims, and family members of victims, may be able to recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages they have suffered in a motorcycle accident through a personal injury claim for damages.

Retired and a victim of a motorcycle accident? We can help


A previous post on this blog discussed how retirees in the Tampa area who choose to ride a motorcycle are at a greater risk of suffering a serious injury in the event of a motorcycle accident. However, getting compensation after such an accident may be difficult for an older biker for a couple of reasons.

Older motorcyclists getting injured more frequently


All of Florida, including the Tampa area, is known as being a great place for people both originally from Florida, as well as transplants from other parts of the country, to retire. What this means is that Florida has a lot of seniors on the roads, and these could include Baby Boomers who, for the first time, grew up riding motorcycles since they were a fad at that time.

Another motorcyclist dies in the Tampa area


In what seems like a déjà vu of an incident that this blog reported on a few weeks ago, another young motorcyclist, this one a male in his mid-20s, has died following an accident on the Tampa roads. Like the previous accident that was reported, the first reports suggest this accident was preventable with a little care on the part of the other driver who was supposed to be watching for motorcyclists.

Victims of head injuries have legal protections


Victims of accidents can suffer a variety of serious and catastrophic injuries in motorcycle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, commercial vehicle accidents and drunk driving accidents. Head injuries are one of the most serious injuries victims of traumatic accidents can suffer. Brain injuries can have devastating consequences for victims and can be challenging to treat.

Tampa motorcycle rider injured; drive of vehicle cited


While traveling by motorcycle can be a very enjoyable activity during the warm months, it is also a form of transportation that is vulnerable to many risks and dangers on the roadways. Inattentive drivers can place motorcycle riders in danger on the roadways. This could result in a serious motorcycle crash, causing a rider to suffer injuries, damages and even death.

Florida motorcycle accident victim in critical condition


Many residents in Florida enjoy the luxury of riding motorcycles year round. While these vehicles are an effective way to get around, motorcycles carry with them a multitude of risks. Even when a motorcyclist is driving safely, this does not protect them from a negligent driver that collides with them. However, motorcycle accident victims have legal protections available to them.

Motorcycle riders should be familiar with protections


Due to the nature of motorcycle accidents, they can be devastating for victims. Making matters worse, motorcycle accidents can commonly be the fault of the other driver or passenger vehicle driver, such as in left-hand turn situations. When a vehicle is turning left, because they do not have the right of way, they may in many cases be liable for causing any accident that results. Unfortunately, this circumstance is common related to motorcycles because many passenger vehicle drivers fail to exercise due care to observe motorcycles, failing to see them and then turning in front of them.
