Florida Number 2 State For Motorcycle Registrants - Drivers Lookout For Bikers

Summertime is nearly upon us as the first day of summer is June 21, 2019. So, until the winter months roll around again, there are sure to be plenty of motorcycle riders out on the highways, and why not? Florida is a great place to hit the open road on two wheels. The weather is typically spectacular, and there are loads of sights to see. There is just something about the rumbling of these vehicles leave owners craving to take them out for a spin again and again.

According to Statista, California had the most motorcycle registrations as of 2017 with 842,543. Meanwhile, the report reveals that Florida came in second with 586,267. That is a lot of motorbikes in a single place. Not to mention, travelers also come to the Sunshine State on these vehicles regularly to attend rallies and events or just soak in the beauty of this magnificent state.

However, motorcycle riders, passenger vehicle drivers, and tractor-trailer operators must use caution and share the roadways. If they fail to do so, an accident could occur in two shakes of a lamb's tail. Some riders wear helmets and protective clothing to safeguard them from collisions, but the equipment usually isn't enough to stop them from sustaining injuries altogether. Other motorcyclists choose not to wear anything at all for protection. Either way, the results can be devastating if riders collide with a car, truck, SUV, van, or big-rig.

Potential Motorcycle Accident Injuries


Every crash is different and unique. Therefore, wounds will vary from one to the next. Still, though, there are many potential injuries that riders can obtain. Some of them include but are not limited to...

• Paralysis
• Dismemberment
• Disfigurement
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Death

While many people believe that loss of life is not all that common, the issue happens more frequently than they might think. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute, motorcycle deaths accounted for 14-percent of all motor vehicle deaths in 2017 with an astonishing number of 5,172. Those that do escape the situation with their lives intact tend to have a long road to recovery ahead of them.

After all, injured riders need surgeries, physical therapy, and more to overcome their issues. Heck, many of them even require counseling to get their mind right again. One thing is for certain, the cost of receiving such services is extremely high. Plus, the motorcyclist is usually not working because of the damages. Hence, paying for everyday expenses like rent, lights, and groceries can become difficult. Thankfully, there is a solution if it can be proven that another party was at fault.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
