DISTRACTED DRIVERS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
According to the official United States government website1 for distracted driving, approximately 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents involving a distracted driver. When distracted drivers cause accidents, victims can often recover for their injuries by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. These accidents are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists, who do not benefit from the protections of a vehicle body or safety equipment such as airbags when they are involved in accidents. In addition, motorcyclists are significantly smaller than other vehicles on the road, they are more difficult for drivers to see, regardless of whether a driver is distracted or not. The best way for a Florida motorcyclist who has been injured by a distracted driver to recover for his or her injuries and other losses is to retain a Clearwater motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible.
