Homestead Motorcycle Accidents

Respected Florida Personal Injury Lawyers Pursuing Maximum Compensation on Behalf of Injured Motorcyclists

Homestead motor accidentsOne of the best things about living in South Florida is the great weather. Sunshine prevails, and it’s great to get outside and take pleasure in the amazing outdoors. Riding a motorcycle is a great way to enjoy Florida's warm weather and naturally flat landscape, and it’s an activity that can be enjoyed year-round. With so many motorcycles on the roads, it’s no surprise that Florida’s motorcycle accident rate is higher than average. In fact, according to the most recent data from the National Safety Council, more people died in Florida motorcycle accidents than in any other state.

The Homestead motorcycle accident lawyers at Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada have a long history of connecting accident victims and their families with meaningful compensation for everything they’ve been through. We recognize that this is a challenging time for your family, and we strive to make the recovery process as straightforward as possible so you can work towards getting your life back to as normal as possible.

Florida Sees More Motorcycle Accidents Than Any Other State

Florida is always near the top of the list when it comes to motorcycle accidents. However, in recent years, Florida has passed Texas and California in terms of the number of fatal motorcycle accidents. In 2021 alone, for example, 651 people lost their lives as a result of motorcycle accident fatalities.

The data isn’t much better when it comes to motorcycle injury accidents. For example, in 2022, there were 9,270 motorcycle accidents. Of these, approximately 8,000 resulted in the rider suffering injuries, 2,000 of which were incapacitating injuries.

Tips for Ensuring a Safe Ride

Motorcyclists and their passengers can protect themselves by wearing helmets. It is estimated that helmets prevent 37 percent of crash-related deaths among motorcycle operators and 41 percent of crash-related deaths for motorcycle passengers.

Aside from wearing a helmet, being cautious and practicing safe riding habits is imperative for all motorcycle enthusiasts. Motorcyclists can decrease their accident risk by knowing the common causes of accidents and by taking steps to reduce or avoid risk. Some things every motorcycle driver must be conscious of include:

  • Avoiding tailgating,
  • Anticipating road hazards and construction zones,
  • Not becoming distracted,
  • Avoiding consumption of anything that can effect ability to drive and appreciate dangers,
  • Being extra careful when lane splitting, and
  • Resisting the impulse to drive dangerously fast.
Florida Motorcycle Laws

There are some major differences between Florida’s licensing and insurance laws as they relate to cars and motorcycles.

  • Florida’s Personal Injury Insurance Protection (PIP) is only required for vehicles that have four or more wheels. Motorcyclists are not permitted to carry PIP coverage. If an uninsured motorcyclist is injured in a crash, paying for costly medical bills and other expenses may prove difficult – especially if the injury prevents them from working.
  • In Florida, a motorcycle license or motorcycle endorsement is required to operate any motorcycle with an engine greater than 50cc.
  • Florida is one of many states that requires all riders under 21 years of age to take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course.
  • Completing a motorcycle safety training course could help you qualify for motorcycle insurance discounts of up to 20%.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
