Suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident is hard enough without the insurance company making it even harder on you. Trying to obtain the payment to which you may be legally entitled is often a full-time job, a task impossible to perform if you are hurt and trying to recover. You need a Motorcycle accident lawyer in Miami to help you in your time of need.

Motorcycle Accidents Almost Always Mean Injuries

In 2019, the last full year for which statistics are available, there were nearly 8,900 motorcycle crashes in Florida. For obvious reasons, motorcyclists have a much higher chance of being injured in an accident than do other drivers. 550 people were killed in these accidents, and more than 2,000 riders and their passengers suffered incapacitating injuries. Over 5,600 people suffered some other degree of injury. In other words, if you were involved in a motorcycle crash, you have almost certainly been injured. Very few people emerge from a motorcycle crash unscathed.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents result in more severe injuries than other types of crashes. When the biker is out in the open, there is little to protect them if another vehicle makes an impact with them or sends them over the handlebars of their bike. Motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from the head striking the concrete
  • Serious fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Road-burns from the arms and legs skidding across the pavement

There are a number of reasons why roadways are more dangerous for motorcyclists. The most common reason is that drivers do not take the time to properly look into their blind spots to see bikers. Frequently, motorcycle accidents occur because overaggressive drivers change lanes or turn right into the biker’s space. Motorcyclists have every right to be on the road, and drivers must look out for them. Those that do not could be found legally responsible for the accident.

Prompt Medical Care Is a Must

Because of the sheer size of the car that collides with a defenseless person, pedestrian injuries will likely be significant. Even if a person survives a pedestrian accident, they are likely facing serious bodily harm in the short and long term. Almost half of pedestrians involved in an accident will suffer an injury to their face, head, or neck. Common pedestrian accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other neurological injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Fractured bones
  • Dislocated shoulders

No matter where you received medical treatment, you will need to have your injuries diagnosed and cared for before filing a claim or lawsuit. Even if you did not suffer critical injuries, very few pedestrians ever emerge from an accident unscathed.

If you have not yet sought medical treatment, you should do so in the immediate days after an accident. Otherwise, it would be difficult to recover money for your claim because you could not show that you were injured. Proving your injuries requires something in writing. Therefore, a full medical exam after an accident is a must. You would need a complete diagnostic check, even if you received treatment at the scene.

Why More People Are Injured or Killed in Pedestrian Accidents Recently

Several factors seem to indicate that this disturbing trend is here to stay:

  • The rise in SUVs means that more drivers are traveling in heavier vehicles, causing more serious injury to passengers.
  • More motorists are driving distracted since they use their mobile devices behind the wheel. As a result, they miss seeing pedestrians in the crosswalks.
  • More people are moving into the urban core of their city and abandoning cars, meaning that there are more people walking.
  • There are more cars and trucks on the road than at any previous point in time.

Even having a crosswalk clearly marked is often not enough to protect pedestrians from an accident. Many motorists simply drive right through the crosswalk regardless of whether a pedestrian is trying to cross the street. Florida will hit drivers with a minimum fine of $164 and up to three points on their license for failure to stop at a crosswalk. However, even these penalties do not get all drivers to stop when legally required.

As dangerous as the United States is for pedestrians, Florida is even worse. The state has a death rate almost twice as high as the national average. Nationally, 1.55 pedestrians out of every 100,000 are killed each year. Florida has the highest rate of pedestrian fatalities in the country, with 2.73 out of every 100,00.
