Motorcycle Attorney in Fort Pierce

When it comes to a motorcycle accident, no matter how careful you are, you cannot control the choices of others. Motorcycle crash injuries are often serious and can result in wrongful death. Unlike motor vehicle drivers, motorcycle riders have little protection from impact and are commonly thrown from their bikes in a crash. Our motorcycle attorneys in Fort Pierce understand that passenger vehicles may not respect or see a motorcycle rider’s position on the roadways. We will defend and support you.

Common causes of Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents

Even the safest and most experienced motorcycle riders can be injured in a motorcycle crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to suffer fatal accident injuries than drivers and passengers of motor vehicles. Common causes of Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents are:

  • Driver error

The most common cause of Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents is when a motor vehicle turns in front of a biker, collides with a biker while switching lanes, or hits a biker at a stop sign or light. Drivers of motor vehicles have a tendency to not see a motorcycle rider, whether from distractions, blind spots, or inattentiveness. 

  • Hazardous conditions

Potholes, debris, spills, and poor signage can cause a car accident, motorcycle crash or wrongful death. In Fort Pierce, dangerous intersections can also lead to motorcycle accidents. 

  • Defective equipment

If a motorcycle accident occurs because of an equipment failure, the manufacturer of that equipment can be held responsible. Defective tires are the most common cause of defective equipment motorcycle accidents. 

Common injuries in Fort Pierce motorcycle accident cases

Injuries in Fort Pierce motorcycle accident cases range in severity. Since motorcycle riders have little protection from impact, minor accidents can cause serious injuries or even death.  Some common injuries in Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents include:

Traumatic brain injuries can be devastating, resulting in paralysis or permanent disabilities. For motorcycle riders, wearing a helmet can reduce your risk of sustaining a head injury in a motorcycle accident. 

  • Spinal cord injuries 

Like TBIs, spinal cord injuries can be life-altering. Because motorcycle riders have limited protection in crashes, spinal cord injuries are fairly common in Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents.

  • Broken bones and fractures

It is common for motorcycle riders to have broken bones or fractures after a motorcycle accident in Fort Pierce. Wearing protective gear, such as quality jackets and boots, can help limit the risk of sustaining such injuries. 

  • Soft tissue injuries

Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents often result in serious soft tissue injuries, such as lacerations, contusions, sprains, and internal organ damage. Sometimes, soft tissue injuries are not easily detectable, which is why you should always seek medical attention after being involved in a motorcycle crash.
