Southwest Florida’s warm, sunny days and beautiful scenery serve as a beacon for motorcyclists seeking to enjoy the day out on the open road. Unfortunately, what starts as a simply joy ride can end in terror when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident.
Like other modes of transportation, motorcycle-related accidents can be caused by numerous factors, including driver negligence, faulty equipment and even hazardous roadway conditions. Whether the accident was the fault of a traditional vehicle or the motorcyclist, the aftermath is nearly always serious.
Motorcycles lack an exterior protective shell, like traditional passenger vehicles. Depending on the details of a given accident, such as speeds and the use or non-use of helmets, motorcyclists and their passengers could end up suffering from road rash, broken bones, disfigurement, traumatic brain injuries, spinal damage and injuries resulting in death. For those who survive, emotional distress could be factored into damages, as is loss of wages and medical and rehabilitation care.
