Jacksonville Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
The warm and sunny weather in Florida makes it an ideal place for motorcyclists to flock to. In fact, Florida is the second most popular state to own a motorcycle. But, with more motorcyclists on the road means more motorcycle accidents.
According to A Safer Florida, there were 10,331 motorcycle accidents in Florida in 2016, which led to 8,256 injuries. These injuries are often more serious in nature, as motorcycles don’t have a seatbelt or airbags. Injuries can range from loss of limbs, brain damage to death.
At Jimenez Law Firm P.A., we understand the stress and trauma that comes after being involved in a motorcycle accident. That’s why our experienced attorneys are prepared to handle your motorcycle accident case so you can focus your energy on recovering.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Cars making left-hand turns: This is the most common reason for motorcycle accidents. This often happens when a car makes a left-hand turn in front of a motorcycle at an intersection or when a motorcycle is in the “blind spot” of a car making a left-hand turn.
- Motorcycle lane splitting: When a motorcyclist drives between two lanes of stopped or slower-moving cars this is known as lane splitting. While this is legal in some states, it is illegal in Florida.
- Head-on collisions: This type of crash is often fatal for motorcyclists. Head-on accidents often occur when the driver of a car is distracted, speeding or intoxicated.
- Hazardous road conditions. Motorcyclists are more susceptible to poor road conditions than drivers of vehicles. Hazardous road conditions that can lead to an accident include potholes, cracked or grooved pavement, gaps between different road surfaces and road debris.
