Florida motorcycle accidents claim the lives of about 500 people each year. More than 80% of all motorcycle accidents in Florida will result in some type of injury. Motorcycles offer very little protection from the force of a collision which leads to a higher rate of death and serious injury for motorcyclists when compared with other types of vehicles.
Our condolences go out to the victim's family following this tragic motorcycle crash in Orlando.
