Because motorcycles are typically smaller than most vehicles, they are not seen in time by other motorists to prevent accidents from happening. One of the most common places for an accident involving a motorcycle to happen is at an intersection. Devastating accidents often occur when rules of the road are not obeyed such as acknowledging the right of way. When motorcycles crash with other vehicles, the riders on the motorcycle usually suffer more physical injuries than the passengers in the car for the obvious reasons that the people in the car had a protective barrier between them and the motorcycle. Common injuries involved with a motorcycle accident include fractured bones, injuries to the spinal cord, sometimes with paralysis, and traumatic brain injuries. Florida motorcycle accident lawyers can get you on the right path towards having such injuries compensated were you the victim of someone else’s poor driving.
The law of negligence determines who was at fault for the accident. Every driver has the responsibility to other pedestrians and motorists to use reasonable care. Drivers are guilty of negligence when they do not exert reasonable care, which can result in serious injuries and even death. Examples of negligence by a driver can include the following:
- Ignoring traffic signals or signs
- Driving in excess speeds
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Lane changes that are unlawful
- Not yielding to the right of way
