Motorcycle accidents in Florida often result in serious injuries to their victims. Motorcycles offer little protection against the effects of a serious crash and motorcyclists often find themselves seriously hurt in a collision. This can include head injuries, broken bones, spinal cord trauma, and more. Although they account for only about 3% of all motor vehicles, motorcycles make up approximately 15% of all reported crashes in our state.
