Boca Raton Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Often these are the most serious accidents we handle. Even with protective gear, injuries from a motorcycle accident are usually permanent and severe. Unlike a bicyclist or scooter, which are low speed machines, motorcyclist have accidents regularly occur at 60, 70 or even 80 miles per hour, greatly increasing the risk of catastrophic injuries.
With little protective equipment to absorb the impact of a collision with a vehicle, motorcyclists receive some of the most significant injuries of any person traveling on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,172 people were killed in accidents in 2017. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in a period of ten years, the number of motorcycles went up 60%, and the number of fatalities more than doubled during the same period.
The injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents fundamentally change the lives of the injured, and their families. We know the medical bills pile up, that some victims cannot got back to work and are missing that vital paychecks a family might rely to make ends meet. We also understand some people will need significant medical attention, like surgeries, debridement procedures (for road rash), physical therapy, psychological or cognitive therapy.
