What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Motorcycle Injuries in Florida

Motorcycles have become increasingly popular over the last few years. One of the major reasons for their rise in popularity is the affordability and fuel efficiency of many motorcycles. Statistically speaking, motorcycle registrations have nearly doubled since 1998.

Florida has seen an increase in motorcyclists as well. The increase in motorcyclists on the road has also brought an increase in motorcyclists involved in accidents, many of them fatal. In Florida, motorcycle fatalities account for around 13% of all vehicle related fatalities. In 2007 alone, 530 individuals lost their lives while on motorcycles in Florida.

Motorcyclists will many times feel like second-class citizens while on the road. One of the main causes for the accidents is careless and non-observant drivers. These drivers do not take the extra precautions while driving, and many times do not notice the motorcyclist in the other lane.

Another cause is that the bigger SUV-type vehicles have added recklessness to the road. Individuals in large vehicles have a personal sense of invincibility and safety while driving. This invincibility causes them to be more reckless while driving, injuring others in the process.

Jacksonville motorcycle accident attorney Donald Guthrie has been a licensed motorcyclist for decades and understands individuals who prefer the openness of the motorcycling experience to the confines of a car.
