Enjoying the open road could lead to serious injuries for bikers

Motorcycles are a popular mode of transportation, and many people enjoy the freedom and fun that these vehicles provide. While motorcycles have the right to share the road, sadly, many other Florida drivers do not believe they should. The reckless and negligent actions of other drivers often cause accidents, leaving innocent bikers and passengers injured.

Motorcycle accidents happen for many reasons, and often, they are preventable. Despite protective equipment and training, motorcyclists often bear the brunt of the irresponsible actions of others. If you suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, it may not be your fault. You would be wise to know your rights and the legal remedies that may be available to you. 

What causes motorcycle accidents?

Sometimes drivers may have a difficult time seeing bikes on the road, which could lead to accidents. In other cases, drivers are speeding, following too closely or ignoring a biker's right of way, which are a few of the most common reasons that motorcycle accidents happen. Chances are that your accident was the result of the actions of another person, which means that you could have a rightful claim to financial compensation.

Your accident-related injuries

Even when wearing the best safety equipment and following all rules of the road, bikers often suffer serious injuries in collisions. Despite all efforts, a biker is largely unprotected against the impact of a larger vehicle. These accidents often result in the following types of injuries:

  • Head injuries and brain trauma
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Road rash and skin abrasions

For many bikers, there is no such thing as a minor accident. Even a low-speed collision can have detrimental consequences. Injuries can have a lasting impact on your life, leaving you with lingering pain, physical difficulties and expensive medical bills. Fortunately, many bikers have the right to seek relief from their pain and suffering through the filing of a personal injury claim.

Recovering from your accident

If you suffered injuries and other repercussions in a motorcycle accident, you would be wise to take quick action to protect your interests. You may be unsure if you have a case of where to begin, but you can start simply by seeking an evaluation of your case and determining the legal options that may be available to you.

As a motorcycle accident victim, you have rights. You do not have to suffer from the negligent actions of another driver, but may fight for the full recovery and fair compensation you deserve.
