Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorney Representing Clients in Daytona Beach

Motorcycle accidents often happen because of a motorist’s negligence. Given the popularity of motorcycles in Daytona Beach and the annual Daytona Bike Week, it is particularly important for motorcyclists to know their options if they are injured in a collision caused by another driver. Since motorcyclists are less protected than motor vehicle occupants, they can sustain especially severe and life-threatening injuries in a crash.

If you or someone you love recently got hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should learn more about your options for filing a claim for financial compensation. An experienced Daytona Beach motorcycle accident lawyer can assist you.

Getting the Facts About Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accidents 

How often do motorcycle accidents happen in Daytona Beach, and how frequently do motorcyclists suffer serious injuries? The following are facts and figures provided by the Insurance Information Institute (III):

  • In 2016, a total of 5,286 people suffered fatal injuries in motorcycle accidents;
  • Motorcyclists are 28 times more likely than a passenger in an automobile to sustain fatal injuries in a collision;
  • More than 70 percent of motorcyclists across the country report that they wear a motorcycle accident when they ride, yet motorcycle helmets are not required by law in the state of Florida;
  • Anywhere from about 80,000 to almost 100,000 motorcycle accident injuries occur each year based on data from 2007 to 2016;
  • In more than 72 percent of fatal collisions involving a motorcycle and another vehicle, the motorcyclist sustained fatal injuries;
  • Highest rate of motorcycle crashes happen on weekdays between the hours of 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.;
  • Even on weekends, a majority of motorcycle accidents occur in the late afternoon and early evening between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.; and
  • In more than 30 percent of all motorcycle crashes, alcohol is a factor.

Statute of Limitations for a Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident

A motorcyclist who has been injured in a collision only has a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. Under Florida law (Fla. Stat. § 95.11), most motorcycle accident lawsuits must be filed within four years from the date of the crash. If a motorcycle does not file his or her claim within this time window, the claim will become time-barred and the motorcyclist will not be able to file a lawsuit.

Even though four years might seem like a significant amount of time, substantial evidence can be lost if you wait too long to file your lawsuit. The quicker you get in touch with a motorcycle accident lawyer, the sooner you may be eligible to obtain financial compensation for your losses.

If you were injured in a serious motorcycle accident, it is important to seek financial compensation. When your injuries are so severe that they prevent you from working while requiring extensive medical treatment, your economic losses can be devastating. In addition to seeking economic damages, you also may be able to seek damages for pain, suffering, and other non-economic losses.
