Deadly Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Taking to the road by motorcycle can be a wonderful feeling that is unrivaled by other forms of transportation. However, that sense of freedom comes with a price. Motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a collision, and nearly 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Thousands of motorcyclists are killed annually in vehicle collisions across the country.
The preventable death of a loved one can be a shattering and entirely traumatic experience for surviving family members, and no amount of compensation can ever make up for the death of a loved one.
