Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Orlando

In Florida, we love our motorcycles. Our beautiful year-round weather means more motorcycles take to the highways in our state than most others. Unfortunately, many negligent drivers out there fail to give motorcyclists their proper space, causing them to drive in more difficult conditions, leading to crashes. Conversely, some motorcyclists drive recklessly for whatever reason, causing accidents with other cars and trucks. Whatever your case, if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, we are here to help! 

What Injuries are Common in Motorcycle Accidents?

Victims of motorcycle accidents can end up with all kinds of injuries. These types of injuries are usually more severe than those experienced inside an enclosed vehicle as the motorcycle driver does not have the benefit of the body of the vehicle to protect them.  Here are some of the most common:

At the law firm of Todd E. Copeland & Associates, our lawyers have vast experience litigating all types of cases involving motorcycle-related crashes.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?

15.7% of all traffic fatalities in the Sunshine State happen to motorcyclists and their passengers. Here are some of the common reasons why a motorcycle accident may occur:

  1. Cars following motorbikes too closely – should be at least a 4 to 5 second following distance.
  2. Auto drivers failing to see motorcycles in their rear view mirrors.
  3. Autos crowding motorcyclists while passing them. 
  4. Motorcyclists driving recklessly; e.g. speeding, running stop signs/red lights, etc.
  5. Motorcyclists driving while intoxicated.
Motorcyclists and riders have less protection than drivers of other vehicles traveling Florida roadways. As a result, injuries sustained in such accidents tend to be far more severe.

Are Helmets Required In Florida?

In the Sunshine State our riders love being on the road and enjoy more days of great weather for riding than nearly any other state.  This passion for the open road is seen in the laws that do not require motorcycle riders to wear a helmet as long as they carry a minimum of $10,000 in health insurance and have liability protection on their insurance policy.  For more information on the various motorcycle license endorsements and helmet laws, consult the Florida DMV website.
