Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of motorcycle accidents end in fatalities. For those motorcyclists that survive an accident, their injuries are generally quite severe and often include significant spinal injuries, broken bones, nerve damage and traumatic brain injuries. Although motorcycle fatalities have decreased in the past few years, Florida continues to rank high among states involving serious motorcycle accidents and fatalities. Our Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys focus a significant portion of their practice litigating injury cases involving motorcycles. We remain dedicated to representing individuals who have been involved in a Tampa motorcycle accident.
Did you know the death rate for a motorcyclist is twenty-two (22) times higher than those occupants in a motor vehicle? Because motorcycle accidents present unique orthopedic and neurological injuries that most often require an extensive knowledge and appreciation of a host of bio-mechanical and physical medicine aspects, we routinely retain accident reconstruction experts, as well as medical experts. We work with engineers to determine, among other things, the speed of the involved motorcycle and motor vehicle to determine the force of impact.
It is extremely important to wear appropriate protective equipment while riding your motorcycle. This includes the helmet, which is by far the most important piece of equipment available to a motorcyclist. You should also wear eye protection, gloves and roughed footwear while riding.
