Florida Man Killed After Motorcycle Accident Involving Collision With A Deer


Florida is one of the most beautiful states in the United States, as most people who have had the chance to live here for a while would agree. Everyone in the U.S. knows at least a little bit about the beautiful beaches that you can find on the coasts and throughout South Florida.

One aspect of Florida that people might not be familiar with is the wooded areas. There are significant patches of woodlands in Central Florida. Likewise, there are other breathtaking biomes throughout the state, including the Florida Everglades.

This makes Florida a great place to see wildlife, whether you enjoy birds, mammals, or even reptiles. However, this presents a risk that some other places in the U.S. don’t necessarily have.

Wildlife Presents Hazards Even For The Most Experienced Motorists

Recently a motorcyclist in Monroe County, Florida lost his life after an apparent high-speed collision with a deer. The 50-year-old man, a resident of Wellington, was believed to be an experienced motorcyclist.

He was taken to hospital where, unfortunately, he passed away shortly after the accident.

Although this incident took place just recently, on September 20, 2014, it is by no means the first example of a deer-related automobile accident this year — and many of these are very serious.

For example, back in February 2014, a 71-year-old Port Richey man driving a Chrysler suffered fatal wounds when he swerved to avoid a deer. During the maneuver, he entered the median and struck a tree at high speed. He died of the wounds at hospital after one day.

Florida Drivers Must Be Especially Alert To Unusual Road Hazards

Did you know that, even if you are a passenger in a vehicle that is in an accident, you may still be able to collect damages from the driver if they were negligent in causing an accident?

At the very same time, Florida passengers should be especially careful not to create road hazards through distracting behavior, loud music, or inappropriate use of cellular phones.

All of the road cautions pertaining to Florida become particularly acute when you are a motorcyclist. Unfortunately, both judges and juries may have limited understanding of “what it takes” to operate a motorcycle. This can lead to unconscious prejudices around your case.

Motorcyclists Need Expert Representation When It Comes To Protecting Their Legal Rights

Operating a motorcycle is, in many ways, more challenging than operating a conventional passenger vehicle. That being the case, an automotive accident with a motorcyclist can be more difficult to understand and to deal with appropriately in the eyes of the law.

If you are a motorcyclist and you’ve recently been involved in an accident, getting in touch with legal counsel will make a critical difference when it comes to your overall well-being. A good law firm should take over many tasks that carry some legal risk, such as dealing with insurance.
