Cocoa, Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Unfortunately, the impact of even a relatively minor motorcycle accident may result in severe injuries or even death. Many motorcyclists are extremely safe defensive drivers and realize that other vehicles often do not see their smaller two-wheeled vehicle. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another’s negligent driving or even by your own actions, you may pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost income, property damage and more under your own insurance coverage, and if your injuries were serious, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent driver. In applicable cases, if a loved one lost their life, legal heirs can file a wrongful death claim.

It is advisable to discuss these matters – and your rights - with an experienced and knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer. Attorney Perry L. Cameron represents clients injured in motorcycle accidents as well as the families of deceased victims. A free case review can be scheduled by contacting Cameron Law, PL.

Motorcycles Are Often Invisible to Car and Truck Drivers

Even if a motorcycle operator wears a helmet, they are completely exposed and particularly prone to serious injuries or death. Additionally, because a motorcycle is so much smaller than a full sized vehicle, car and truck drivers often do not see the motorcycle even when it is right in front or behind them. Motorcycles are particularly invisible when they approach to pass from behind. Motorcycles are often completely unseen in rear and side view mirrors.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recently compiled motorcycle accident statistics, in 2012:

    • 4957 – fatalities nationwide

    • 93% were drivers and 7% were passengers

    • 93,000 – injuries nationwide

    • 456 – fatalities in Florida

    • Motorcyclists were 26 times more likely to die in a traffic crash than passenger car occupants

    • Motorcyclists were 5 times more likely to be injured than passenger car occupants

    • Motorcycle riders who wear helmets are estimated to be 37% less likely to die in an accident than non-helmeted riders (Source: NHTSA)

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries and death. Common injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Traumatic brain injury, coma – may result in loss of brain function and/or motor skills

    • Neck and back injuries – sometimes results in partial or full paralysis

    • Severe skin “burn” upon much of the body

    • Fractures of all extremities and ribs, head, face

    • Complete loss of limb

    • Shoulder, knee damage
