As motorcycle accidents and fatalities climb, how we can help.

Florida ranks routinely in top 5 for the most motorcycle deaths nationwide.

And it’s a number on the rise with fatalities up 11 percent since 2019 and 23 percent since 2010. The number of motorcycle fatalities has more than doubled over the past 20 years, including 593 deaths resulting from 8,638 crashes in 2021. The personal injury attorneys at Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC, have the knowledge, expertise, and experience to assist clients who are victims of and suffered injuries from motorcycle accidents as well as those families who have lost loved ones as the result of a motorcycle fatality. Personal injury attorneys Ty G. Roland, Evan D. Lubell and Jonathan A. Martin know how much people love their motorcycles in Florida. They also know the profound dangers that exist.

Dangers around every turn

Florida roads for motorcyclists have never been more dangerous. The numbers and conditions are ripe for accidents. As the country’s third most populated state, Florida has 620,000 registered motorcyclists, the second most in the U.S.  Researchers also have learned that warmer, southern states where weather is conducive to motorcycles on the road 365 days a year have the highest accident rates. Although helmets are optional for people 21 years of age and older, statistics show about 70 percent of motorcycle riders say they wear a helmet. That’s about two percent higher than the national average. But safety measures aren’t stopping the accidents.  Between 2011 and 2021, 29,960 pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists died in Florida, including 3,753 in 2021. Not only is the cost of human life too high, but the annual cost of motor vehicle crashes is almost $14 billion.

Not much different in our backyard

The numbers are just as horrifying in Lee County. In 2022, the county recorded its second highest number of road fatalities on record with at least 131, including 28 motorcycle fatalities. The highest number of deaths occurred in 2005 with 150 killed on Lee County roads. Motorcycles are especially vulnerable to drivers who are speeding, impaired or distracted – accounting for the reasons most accidents occur on our roads. In time, recent laws making texting while driving a primary offense, instead of a second offense, should help.
