Motorcycle accidents in Florida can be a very dangerous and deadly event for those involved. A motorcycle offers victims very little protection from the force and impact of a crash. Each year, motorcycle crashes in Florida claim more than 500 lives and leave thousands of others suffering from serious injuries. Many of these victims will be injured or killed due to the actions of a negligent third-party motorist.
