May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, and motorists and motorcyclists around Florida have been asked to share the road and help prevent accidents, injuries, and deaths on the road.
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, last year there were nearly 10,000 motorcycle crashes statewide that resulted in 440 deaths and more than 9,800 injuries. In 2013, 462 motorcyclists including passengers died in crashes. In 2012 it was 457. Though motorcycle registrations represent a mere three percent of all vehicles registered in Florida, the deaths made up 19.2 percent of total highway fatalities in 2013.
These statistics show that motorcyclists and those on the road with them need to be careful while driving, as accidents are not rare. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you could suffer grave injuries, as you are not as protected as if you were in a car. Motorcycle accidents almost always results in severe injuries that require extensive recovery.
Personal injury attorney James Cunningham vigorously represents injured motorcyclists and seeks justice for accident victims by holding negligent parties accountable. He works with medical experts to determine how much money his clients will need for a full recovery, then works to get them adequate compensation. Motorcycle accident injuries often include brain injury, paralysis, fractures, head injury, and severe burns and road rash.
Since 1977, attorney Cunningham has been working with motorcyclists, from enthusiasts to weekend riders to out-of-state riders in Florida for Bike Week, Daytona Beach Biketoberfest, or other events. In more than three decades of experience, he has helped hundreds of clients recoup millions of dollars in compensation.
Costs can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars for hospital visits, medication, physical therapy, ongoing treatment, surgery, loss of wages, and more. With aggressive representation on your side, you can have these costs covered, easing the stress that money places on an accident, and leaving you time to focus on your recovery.
