As thrilling and enjoyable as motorcycle rides can be, their danger is no secret. In fact, recent National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) data reveals that the national fatality rate among motorcycle accidents is more than quintuple that of car accidents. The rates are similar in Florida, where according to a 2010 Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) report, 7,484 motorcycle accidents yielded a fatality rate of more than five percent (383 deaths), while 235,461 total traffic crashes yielded a fatality rate of only about one percent (2,444 deaths).
Despite the inherent risk of motorcycling, motorcyclists are fully entitled to the same rights as all motorists. Of course, they also share the same responsibilities, such as signaling and following traffic laws. But many car and truck drivers may take for granted certain motorist rights because their vehicles protect them, including the following:
When motorcyclists get into accidents because the roadway is unacceptable or because other vehicles fail to allow them adequate space, their risk for serious damage is high since they have no protection other than helmets. Sadly, the disastrous results can include spinal injury, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or death. At Morris & Widman, P.A., we defend seriously injured motorcyclists whose rights have been violated.
