Fort Myers Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers Handle Motorcycle Accident Cases
Florida’s open roadways and temperate climate make it a popular destination for motorcycle enthusiasts. Unfortunately, motorcycle riding is never without risk, no matter how many precautions a rider takes. Without the framework of an enclosed vehicle and safety features such as seat belts and airbags, motorcyclists and their passengers are particularly vulnerable to serious and fatal injuries, particularly when up against much larger and heavier vehicles. When motorcycle accidents occur, whether due to a driver’s intoxication or another reason, it is often the motorcyclist and his or her rider who suffer the brunt of the injuries, or even death, as a result.
In 2010, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported 7,484 crashes involving motorcycles, which resulted in 383 fatalities and 7,411 injured motorcyclists and passengers. While DUI-related crashes often involve motor vehicles such as cars or trucks, motorcycles are involved in drunk driving crashes as well. The state of Florida experienced almost 18,000 alcohol-related crashes in 2010 and many of these accidents involved motorcycles. When an intoxicated driver causes a motorcycle accident that leads to injury or death, that driver can be held accountable for his or her actions through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
