Don't Just Become a Statistic
As the population of Florida continues to grow, so does the percentage of people who drive a motorcycle as their primary mode of transportation. Unfortunately, that means the number of people killed or seriously injured on a motorcycle continues to rise as well. According to Ride Smart Florida, 19.2 percent of all fatal accidents in 2013 involved the driver or passenger of a motorcycle. Further, 31 Florida residents each day visit hospital emergency rooms or spend at least one night in the hospital due to of serious injuries.
Not Enough Public Awareness about Motorcycles on the Road
Even though more people drive motorcycles in Florida than ever before, there has yet to be enough public awareness that all types of vehicles must safely share the road. Drivers of traditional vehicles fail to look for motorcycles or yield right-of-way, two careless decisions that can quickly lead to serious consequences.
While motorcycle drivers must obey all traffic laws as well, in many cases collisions with other vehicles happen for these two reasons. If this is the case in your situation, a Stuart, FL motorcycle accident attorney from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC can help.
