In Venice Motorcycle Accidents Often Result from Bad Drivers
As a motorcycle accident lawyer I’ve seen why motorcyclists safety is such a primary precaution that most practice. I’ve also seen that drivers of cars and trucks make bad driving decisions which cause crashes. It takes only one mistake by another driver to cause your motorcycle accident. Accordingly, even careful and expert motorcyclists risk of major injuries or death when on the road.
Most motorcycle accidents involve collision with another motor vehicle, such as car, truck, or van. Moreover, in multiple vehicle accidents, the driver of the other vehicle violates the motorcycle right-of-way in a majority of crashes. Additionally, drivers often fail to see motorcycles is the main cause source of motorcycle crashes.
Perhaps the most common motorcycle accident involves a car, truck, or van making a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. Indeed, intersections are the most likely place for a motorcycle accident, with another vehicle violating motorcycle right-of-way, and often violating traffic controls. Unfortunately, most motorcycle accidents allows a motorcyclist less than 2 seconds to avoid the collision.

In Florida, there are approximately 350-400 motorcyclist deaths per year. There are also between 2,500 and 3,000 motorcycle injuries annually.
Many motorcycle crashes cause serious injuries requiring hospital, surgery, and rehabilitation, among other medical treatments. Many victims never full recover from the crash, are unable to work, or provide for themselves and their families. Major harms and losses include:

Motorcycle Accident Prevention Tips
Avoiding a motorcycle crash in today’s driving environment is harder than ever. However, you should always assume you and your bike are invisible to other drivers. Here are some safety tips which may help avoid a collision:
- Make sure you have space in front, back, and sides from motor vehicles
- Most motorcycle crashes occur at intersections, so pay attention to motorists turning left in front of you at intersections
- Exercise caution at curves you can’t see around, because a parked vehicle or a patch of sand may be beyond the curve
- Avoid all tailgating vehicles by speeding up or allowing them to pass
- Take a motorcycle safety course to learn what to look for to avoid accidents
- Wear a helmet: remember, you may be a great motorcyclist, but you are protecting yourself from bad drivers
- Keep your headlight turned on at all times
There is no Florida No-Fault insurance available to motorcycle riders. Accordingly, in a motorcycle accident, health insurance must pay your bills. If we win your claim, then we must reimburse your health insurance carrier. If there is no health insurance available, the issue of medical bills and paying for medical care becomes complicated, indeed. Consult an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.
