Miami Motorcycle Accident Attorney

While motorcyclists love the feeling of freedom that comes while riding on the open road, motorcycles themselves do little to protect riders when motorcycle accidents occur. Injuries sustained in these types of accidents can be severe and life-threatening, with the potential to result in permanent disabilities that can impair your ability to provide for yourself and your loved ones.

According to the latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as many as 80,000 motorcycle riders and their passengers suffer serious injuries due to crashes and collisions each year, while another 5,000 riders die as the result of their injuries. While research from the NHTSA indicates that driver error and inexperience, as well as road and weather conditions, can be contributing factors in these accidents, encounters with motorists and other riders are often to blame.

Types of motorcycle accidents that can result in serious injuries include the following:

  • Impaired driving accidents, caused by motorists under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Speed-related accidents, and motorists who drive too fast for conditions;
  • Distracted driving accidents, involving drivers who use their cellphones or text behind the wheel;
  • Accidents resulting from motor vehicle violations, such as running red lights, improper passing, and following too closely.

Common types of injuries that can occur in these types of accidents include head, back, and neck trauma, broken bones and torn muscles, severe lacerations and burns, and internal injuries.
