How an Orlando Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help
Motorcyclists are a special group of people. They enjoy the open road and feeling that can only come from riding a bike. Motorcyclists have every right to be on the highway and enjoy the open road.
Motorcyclists who ride on our highways face many dangers. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents can include sudden lane changes without signaling, debris such as tread from big rigs in sitting in the middle of the road. What was supposed to be an enjoyable ride has now turned into you or your loved one’s worst nightmare.
Unfortunately, statistics show that the motorcycle accidents are increasing and can be deadly. Statistics also show that overwhelmingly most of the accidents are not the riders’ fault. The reality is that drivers do not pay attention to motorcycles on the highway. They don’t see what is there to be seen. Because of driver inattentiveness, innocent riders are hurt or killed every day.
Worse, when a motorcyclist brings a claim in front of a jury there may be hidden prejudices that exist either limiting or eliminating the rights of the rider. Some people will want punish a rider for not wearing a helmet even though the law does not require a helmet to be worn in Florida. Careful consideration of who is on your jury needs to be made to uncover these hidden prejudices.
