According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclist are over 30 times more likely to suffer a fatal motor vehicle accident than those who are traveling in a passenger vehicle. Even what would normally be considered a "fender bender" for a passenger vehicle could be devastating for a motorcycle rider.
As anyone knows who lives in the Daytona Beach area, motorcycles are a common site in our community, especially during Biketoberfest and Bike Week. At Johnson & Gilbert, we encourage everyone using our roads to look out for each other. Motorcycles are easily lost in the blind spots of passenger vehicles. Likewise, those on motorcycles should never assume that another vehicle sees them. Those riders and drivers who are cautious in traffic are less likely to be involved in an accident and avoid serious injury. We must share our roads with all types of vehicles so stay alert and avoid becoming a statistic.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, please contact Johnson & Gilbert at 1-800-556-8890 for a free consultation.
