Florida motorcycle accidents frequently result in catastrophic outcomes for the victims. Well over 80% of motorcyclists who are involved in an accident will sustain some type of injury as a result of the crash. Many of these injuries can be serious and even life-threatening as motorcycles are not built to withstand the destructive force of a crash with a larger vehicle.
