According to statistics from NHTSA, 586 people died in Florida motorcycle crashes in 2016. More than 8,000 riders were injured during this time period, many of them seriously. More than 80% of all Florida motorcycle accidents result in some type of injury for those involved. Motorcycles can be very dangerous and deadly when a crash occurs. Unfortunately, drivers of other vehicles are often responsible for these accidents, leaving innocent victims and their families to suffer from the consequences.
