Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Florida
Despite being one of the greatest and most exhilarating hobbies a person can take up, motorcycle riding poses some significant dangers to riders. Motorcyclists must always be aware of their surroundings as they are much smaller than conventional automobiles and may be more difficult for other drivers to see in time to avoid a collision. Additionally, motorcycles lack modern safety features that are common on cars and trucks — namely seat-belts, air-bags, and surrounding walls. Due to this, the injuries that a motorcyclist may incur as the result of the negligent actions of other drivers can be incredibly severe, to say the least.

With over 30 years of combined litigation experience, our dedicated attorneys have the resources and skills needed to build you an effective case.
Florida Leads Nation In Motorcycle Related Injury and Deaths
Florida, unfortunately, leads the entire nation in the number of motorcycle-related deaths and injuries. In 2016 According to A Safer Florida, there were a total of 10,331 motorcycle accidents, 8,256 of those resulted in injury and 545 people were killed.
Injuries that our firm has helped clients recover substantial financial compensation for in the past as a result of a motorcycle accident have included:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Head Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Fractured Bones
- Extensive Cuts and Bruises (often labeled “Road Rash”)
- Wrongful Death
Due to the lack of safety features on motorcycles, riders typically incur more serious injuries than passengers in an automobile. Additionally, motorcycles themselves are significantly smaller than cars and are generally pushed or thrown off the road — or worse into oncoming traffic when struck by larger vehicles.
