Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 13.10 cars out of 100,000 ended up in fatal crashes. Motorcycles also have a higher fatality rate per unit of distance travelled when compared to automobiles. Per vehicle traveled, motorcyclists’ risk of a fatal crash is 35 times greater than a passenger car. Because motorcycle riders lack the weight, bulk and protection of a car, truck or SUV, they are more likely to sustain serious, life-altering injuries when accidents occur. Furthermore, unlike automobiles, motorcycles are not equipped with airbags, roofs, seat belts and other safety features.
We have experience helping clients with the following types of injuries:
- Brain injury
- Head injury
- Neck injury
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Internal bleeding
- Fractured or broken bones
- Torn ligaments
Florida Motorcycle Helmet Laws
In Florida helmets are not required if you are over the age of 21. Per 316.211(b) Notwithstanding subsection (I), a person over 21 years of age may operate or ride upon a motorcycle without wearing protective headgear securely fastened upon his or her head if such person is covered by an insurance policy providing for at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle.
Hiring a Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney
At Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A., we understand the legal challenges facing motorcycle accident victims, especially if the case goes to a jury. Many car drivers simply do not understand the dynamics of a motorcycle. They tend to place blame on the motorcycle driver, assuming that he or she must have done something to contribute to the collision. Further, the opposing adjuster or attorney may attempt to unfairly blame the injuries on the lack of certain protective measures, such as a helmet.

- Lost wages
