Motorcycle riders traveling on busy Florida streets or highways are especially vulnerable to accidents and injuries due to their lack of impact protection and problems being seen by car and truck drivers. Motorcycle riders face accidents of all types due to a lapse of attention, intoxication, or negligence in driving by other drivers.
Motorcycle accidents result in an estimated 50,000 injuries and 3,000 fatalities every year in the US. Motorcycles are more susceptible to accidents because they are smaller and less protected than cars or trucks. Due to the increased vulnerability of motorcycles in combination with the negligence of drivers on the road, motorcycle accidents can be some of the most severe on the road.
Motorcycle accidents – Causes
Some of the factors that contribute to the frequency of motorcycle accidents include:
Vehicle blind spots – Motorcycles are harder to see than most vehicles and are often overlooked by drivers that are not paying attention to the road.
Limited motorcycle visibility – Close to 70 percent of all accidents occur at intersections because motorcycles are not as visible due to parked vehicles, trees, buildings, etc.
Unsafe vehicle maneuvers – normal illegal motor vehicle maneuvers such as speeding, improper turning, and more
Motorcycle defects – improper or after-market parts may fail
Road hazards – uneven pavements, debris on the road, puddles, potholes, etc
Weather conditions – mother nature can significantly effect a drivers ability to safely maneuver a motorcycle. Rain, hail, wind, snow, etc
Alcohol or drug use – Impaired Drivers on motorcycles
Motor vehicle driver negligence – number one cause of motorcycle fatalities and accidents.

Injury Types

Traffic accidents are a common cause of head injuries. Head injuries include both injuries to the brain and those to other parts of the head, such as the scalp and skull. Head injuries may be closed or open. A closed head injury is one in which the skull is not broken. A penetrating head injury occurs when an object pierces the skull and breaches the dura mater. Brain injuries may be diffuse, occurring over a wide area, or focal, located in a small, specific area. A head injury may cause a skull fracture, which may or may not be associated with injury to the brain. Some patients may have linear or depressed skull fractures.
If intracranial hemorrhage occurs, a hematoma within the skull can put pressure on the brain. Types of intracranial hemorrage include subdural, subarachnoid, extradural, and intraparenchymal hematoma. Craniotomy surgeries are used in these cases to lessen the pressure by draining off blood. Brain injury can be at the site of impact, but can also be at the opposite side of the skull due to a contrecoup effect (the impact to the head can cause the brain to move within the skull, causing the brain to impact the interior of the skull opposite the head-impact). If the impact causes the head to move, the injury may be worsened, because the brain may ricochet inside the skull causing additional impacts, or the brain may stay relatively still (due to inertia) but be hit by the moving skull (both are contrecoup injuries).
Specific problems after head injury can include:
Skull fracture
Lacerations to the scalp and resulting hemorrhage of the skin
Traumatic subdural hematoma, a bleeding below the dura mater which may develop slowly
Traumatic extradural, or epidural hematoma, bleeding between the dura mater and the skull
Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage
Cerebral contusion, a bruise of the brain
Concussion, a temporary loss of function due to trauma
Dementia pugilistica, or “punch-drunk syndrome”, caused by repetitive head injuries, for example in boxing or other contact sports
A severe injury may lead to a coma or death.
If you suspect you may have been the victim of a closed head injury in a car accident, it is important that you consult a physician immediately. We recommend you also contact us to speak with a qualified Florida car accident lawyer as soon as possible to learn your legal rights and whether you should pursue a case.
==================
The cervical (neck), thoracic (middle) and lumbar (low back) sections of the spine are very delicate and important parts of our everyday functions and movement. Trauma from car accidents can cause damage to the bones of the spine, the discs separating and supporting the bones, or the nerves protected by the spine. Any of these injuries can lead to extreme pain, loss of function, numbness, tingling or even paralysis in the spine, arms and legs.
Spinal cord injury causes myelopathy or damage to white matter or myelinated fiber tracts that carry sensation and motor signals to and from the brain. It also damages gray matter in the central part of the spinal, causing segmental losses of inter-neurons and motor-neurons. Spinal cord injury can occur from many causes, including trauma from car accidents.
If you suspect you may have been the victim of a spinal cord injury in a Florida car accident, it is important that you consult a physician immediately. We recommend you also contact a qualified Florida car accident lawyer as soon as possible to learn your legal rights and whether you should pursue a case.

Injuries to the knees, shoulders, hips and other joints of the body are common from car accidents and usually involve dislocation of bones, broken bones, torn or strained ligaments or tendons, and damage to valuable cartilage. Treatment and recovery times can be extensive, as can the costs. Treatment can involve rest, medications, physical therapy, pain management and sometimes surgery. These injuries can have lasting symptoms if not treated properly or within sufficient time after the accident.

=============
Whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders represent a range of injuries to the neck caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck. Whiplash is commonly associated with car accidents, usually when the vehicle has been hit in the rear. The exact injury mechanism that causes whiplash injuries is unknown. A whiplash injury may be the result of impulsive stretching of the spine, mainly the ligament: anterior longitudinal ligament, which is stretched or tears, as the head snaps forward and then back again causing a whiplash injury. Whiplash may be caused by any motion similar to a rear-end accident in a car, such as may take place on a roller coaster or other rides at an amusement park, sports injuries such as skiing accidents, other modes of transportation such as airplane travel, or from being hit, kicked or shaken.
Symptoms reported by sufferers include: pain and aching to the neck and back, referred pain to the shoulders, sensory disturbance (such as pins and needles) to the arms & legs and headaches. Symptoms can appear directly after the injury, but often are not felt until days afterwards. Whiplash is usually confined to the spinal cord (neck to pubic bone), and the most common areas of the spinal cord affected by whiplash are the neck, and the mid-back (middle of the spine).
If you suspect you may have been the victim of whiplash in a car accident, it is important that you consult a physician immediately. Then, contact us to speak with a qualified Florida car accident lawyer as soon as possible to learn your legal rights and whether you should pursue a case.
=======================
Physical injuries caused by car accidents can lead to psychological disorders as well. Depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder are just some of the emotional disorders that can result from the pain, trauma and disruption of your life that can come with a car accident.
If you suspect you may suffer from an emotional disorder due to a physical injury from a Florida car accident, it is important that you consult a physician immediately. Then, contact us to speak with a qualified Florida car accident lawyer as soon as possible to learn your legal rights and whether you should pursue a case.
==============
Aside from injuries to the spine, joints and head, the significant trauma of a car accident can cause injuries to the body’s vital internal organs. The lungs, kidneys, intestines and liver are prone to damage from puncture wounds, crushing or jarring when vehicles collide. These are some of the most serious types of injuries caused by car accidents and must be treated immediately at a hospital or trauma center to avoid long term damage or death.
If you suspect you may have been the victim of an internal injury in a car accident, it is important that you consult a physician immediately. Then, contact us to speak with a qualified Florida car accident lawyer as soon as possible to learn your legal rights and whether you should pursue a case.
