Did you know that Florida law does not require motorcyclists to wear helmets? This means that most motorcycle accidents involve very serious injuries since motorcycles themselves do not offer the same crash protection as that of a car, truck or SUV. A collision that would have been minor often becomes serious, and one that would have been serious often becomes fatal.

Whether You Collided With A Vehicle Or Another Object, We Have The Legal Knowledge To Help
The vast majority of Florida motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers failing to observe the motorcycle and thus failing to yield the right of way. This often leads to catastrophic collisions between the two vehicles.
In other instances, the motorcyclist is able to swerve and avoid the vehicle that violated its right of way — only to collide with another vehicle, a tree or a telephone pole. Again, the motorcyclist is likely to suffer life-changing injuries or death, even though he or she was not at fault.
