Pensacola Motorcycle Accidents

With the wonderful temperatures and pleasant wind in your face, motorcycle season in Florida is almost year-round. This is especially true in Pensacola, where good weather and white sand beaches draw people year-round. However, these excellent conditions for motorcycle riding can lead to more accidents if drivers and riders are not careful.

At Morgan & Morgan, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Pensacola have handled numerous cases, and know how serious and debilitating a motorcycle accident can be for a rider. Sometimes these accidents are not the fault of the rider, and in those cases the rider may be able to take legal action against the negligent party that caused their injuries.

If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else one of our motorcycle accident lawyers in Pensacola may be able to help. Contact us for a free case evaluation today to learn more about what one of our attorneys can do for you.

Challenges Faced by Florida Motorcycle Riders

Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable on the road. Not only are they more likely to get into an accident than a car, but motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die than passenger car occupants in accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This may be because motorcycles are smaller and less visible, and can easily end up ignored when it comes to sharing the road.

It’s far too easy for a careless driver to allow motorcycles into their blind spot, to say nothing of misjudging speed and distance, or even failing to see them at all. Common driver behaviors like sudden left turns or lane changes can impact motorcyclists even if they don’t hit them, running them off the road or forcing them to make a dangerous maneuver to avoid getting hit. Riders might fly over the handlebars, flip, or have to bring their bike dangerously close to the ground. A motorcycle accident lawyer like Morgan & Morgan can help you assess and determine your position and fight for your rights in these incidents.

Common Motorcycle Injuries in Florida

Any motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injuries. But Florida motorcyclists fall prey to injuries that might not normally affect drivers, like injuries to the skin, head, and spine. Direct contact with the road can cause “road rash,” a skin injury caused by direct contact with the road, most often at high speed. Road rash can be particularly painful, not to mention scarring.

Even with the proper safety equipment to prevent road rash, traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries can occur. This type of damage could take weeks or months to appear, and your physical damage might be minimized by an insurance company unless it’s backed up with strong medical evidence as a result. That is why an experienced motorcycle accident attorney is a valuable ally after an accident.
