Motorcycle Accident Attorney Palm Beach

Florida is an especially dangerous state for motorcyclists. The fatality rate for motorcycle-related deaths is higher than most states due to the year round good weather. Motorcycle fatalities are common in South Florida as people go on the dangerous interstate with trucks and other large vehicles. This is particularly dangerous as motorcycles are less visible to other drivers and less stable. This means drivers and passengers on the motorcycle bike are more at risk for bodily injury or death, especially in poor lighting, bad weather, or if the roads are hazardous or obstructed. Due to the increased vulnerability of drivers and passengers exposed on motorcycles on the roadway, accidents and collisions are more likely to occur. When motorcycle crashes happen, they tend to be more serious and life threatening.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys in Palm Beach will help you navigate insurance companies, medical bills, and liability arguments so you can obtain maximum financial recovery for your injuries.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries

More than 80% of all reported motorcycle accidents result in injury or death to the motorcyclist. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there is only one factor that is typical of a motorcycle accident — it is a violent event that often causes serious bodily harm, catastrophic permanent injuries, and fatality. The largest percentage of non-fatal motorcycle accident injuries occur to the leg and foot area, including broken bones, crushing, and road rash. These injuries can result in amputation, head and neck injuries, including spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury, are also among the non-fatal but common motorcycle accident injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents, Injuries & Fault

Most motorcycle-car collisions occur at intersections, and are deadly to the motorcyclist. Motorcyclists are often unfairly blamed for causing accidents due to a presumption that motorcyclists drive recklessly.

  • More than 75% of motorcycle crashes are head-on collisions between a car and the motorcycle. Head-on motorcycle collisions are often fatal to the motorcyclist, even when they wear a helmet.
  • Failure to yield, or improper left hand turns are also very dangerous to motorcyclists. The impact from a left hand turn is as direct as a head-on collision because the car that crashed into the motorcycle was not expecting to yield, or looking to yield. In these cases, the motorcyclists is often ejected from the bike and facing life-threatening injuries if not immediate fatality.
  • Improper lane changes often put motorcyclists at risk. Motorcycles are smaller than other cars and often end up in blind spots of cars and trucks. This creates a grave danger when cars or motorcycles change lanes, or weave in and out of traffic.
  • Speeding by the motorcyclist or the car on the road is also particularly dangerous for the motorcyclist upon impact or crash. The severity of the bodily harm is usually reflective of the speed. The higher the speed the more harm and injuries suffered.
