Motorcycle Accidents in Florida 

Ocala, FL – Fatal Motorcycle Accident at FL-40 and 113th TerraceMotorcycle accidents are becoming increasingly more common on Florida roads. In one recent year’s time, it is estimated that approximately 10,000 accidents took place in the state of Florida. Out of these accidents, hundreds of victims lost their lives due to the outright negligence of others. Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads due to the fact that they have few protections from harm against much larger vehicles. This means that victims are more likely to experience life-altering injuries and even lose their lives. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle collision and believe another party is to blame, it is important that you speak with an accident attorney.
