Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Tampa FL
Many drivers fail to look for motorcycles while on the road, and this can, unfortunately, lead to catastrophic collisions. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that nearly 80% of motorcycle crashes end in death or injury and riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in the event of a collision. Motorcycle accidents are over-represented in national roadway fatalities.
