According to the Florida Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Office, most motorcycle accident deaths happen in a handful of counties here in Florida: Brevard County, Broward County, Duval County, Hillsborough County, Miami-Dade County, Orange County, Palm Beach County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, and Volusia County rank highest for biker fatalities.
Which means that Fort Lauderdale injury lawyers unfortunately have seen more than their fair share of seriously injured and sometimes wrongfully killed bikers and motorcycle riders who left their homes to ride in this beautiful part of the Sunshine State with no clue that things were about to change for them permanently.
“Motorcycle accidents here in South Florida are all too often not the fault of the biker, but caused by negligent drivers who may be distracted or simply not paying attention to the road. Regardless of what causes the motorcycle crash, the cruel reality is that it’s the bikers who usually suffer serious injuries to their brain, spine, and neck as well as broken bones and fractures. Permanent brain injuries, amputations, and paralysis change the lives of bikers in motorcycle accidents forever – and way too many biker injuries tragically result in the death of the man or woman riding that bike on a pretty Florida roadway. These cases can be heart-wrenching and justice should be swift and strong.”
– -Alan Sackrin, Esq.
The same thing that gives motorcycle riding its unique experience, that feeling of freedom and being unencumbered on the road, also means that accidents involving motorcycles have those riders vulnerable to serious injury and death – particularly here in Florida, where there is no law requiring bikers to wear motorcycle helmets. This means that victims of motorcycle crashes often suffer severe injuries such as:
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Spinal Cord Injury
Broken Bones (Fractures)
Loss of Limb (Amputation)
Pain and suffering (now and in the future)
However, severe harm to the biker’s body isn’t all the damage and harm that he or she suffers after a motorcycle accident. There are other damages that come along with a motorcycle accident, including things like:
medical expenses (current and in the future, e.g., long term care, home nurses, therapy, etc.)
lost future earning ability
property damage (motorcycle repair or replacement costs)
