Motorcycle Accident Attorney Miami

Accident?
Injured?

MIAMI Motorcycle ACCIDENT LAW FIRM

According to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, motorcycle accidents, and resulting fatalities, have been on the increase both in Miami and across the United States in recent years.

Some of those statistics, which can make for sobering reading, include the following:

  • 5,290 motorcyclists suffered fatal injuries in 2013
  • A further 96,000 were injured in motorcycle accidents
  • 47% of all fatal motorcycle accidents involved a collision with at least one other vehicle
  • 77% of these collisions involved motorcycles being struck in front, with just 7% being rear-ended
  • In fatal motorcycle accidents involving a collision with another vehicle, 41% occurred when the other vehicle was turning left, while the motorcycle was continuing straight, passing, or overtaking, while 28% occurred when both vehicles were continuing straight on
  • 25% of those motorcycle riders suffering fatal injuries after a 2013 accident were driving without a valid license
  • 25% of fatal motorcycle accidents involved a collision with a fixed object
  • Motorcyclists who were riding under the influence of alcohol accounted for 33% of fatal motorcycle accidents

Common Injuries Inflicted by Miami Motorcycle Accidents

As experienced Miami motorcycle accident attorneys, the legal team at Dante Law Firm have encountered all manner of injuries, with some of the most common including:

  • Broken bones and damaged joints, with the most commonly affected including the shoulders and pelvis
  • Soft tissue damage, also known as road rash, and caused by the body sliding across the road’s surface
  • Biker’s Arm, a permanent form of nerve damage caused by a fall from a motorcycle
  • Facial disfigurement, generally inflicted on motorcyclists riding without a helmet

Our Miami motorcycle attorneys have successfully represented motorcyclists suffering from all the above injuries, and more. If you have sustained any form of injury in a Miami motorcycle accident, a Dante Law Firm lawyer could help you. For more information, call us today on (305) 949-2526.

How to Reduce Your Risk of Being Injured in a Miami Motorcycle Accident

While even the most careful motorcycle riders, and motorists for that matter, can be involved in Miami motorcycle accidents, there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk. Our Miami motorcycle accident attorneys recommend that you:

  • Make yourself as noticeable as possible. Increasing your visibility by wearing a high-visibility jacket and keeping your headlamps on at all times could help keep you safe on the roads
  • Ensure you are up-to-date with all Miami, Florida motorcyclist training, rules and regulations. It is a legal requirement for motorcyclists in Florida to hold a valid license, but you should also keep track of any changes in the legislation. Statistics show that learning to ride through attending an official course drastically reduces your risk of being involved in an accident, compared to those who are self-taught, or taught by friends and family
  • Wear suitable clothing, and an approved helmet. A helmet is not legally required in Florida, but wearing one will protect you from many potentially fatal injuries. Heavy boots, jackets, and gloves are also highly recommended
