Motorcycle Crash Injury Lawyers in Gainesville Florida
Riding a motorcycle is a fun and convenient way to get around North Florida. However, every motorcyclist should be aware of the risks of accidents and injuries while riding. No matter how careful you may be while operating your motorcycle, you cannot control the acts of drivers or the environmental conditions around you and accidents can occur. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 92,000 motorcyclists sustained injuries in crashes in a single year in the U.S., while another 4,586 did not survive the crash.
Motorcyclists injured in accidents have the same legal rights as people injured in other types of motor vehicle accidents. They have the right to seek compensation for their losses through either insurance claims or personal injury claims in court.

Motorcycle Accident Can Cause Devastating Injuries
The losses that a motorcycle accident victim can incur are often extensive due to the severe injuries that can result from these accidents. Unlike motorists in cars or trucks, motorcyclists do not have metal frames, bumpers, seatbelts, airbags, and other components to protect them in the event of a collision. Instead, motorcyclists generally have little more than a helmet (if they are wearing one) and the clothes on their backs to protect them from an impact. It should be no surprise that these crashes can leave motorcyclists with catastrophic injuries.
Some of the common serious injuries motorcyclists sustain include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Crushed limbs
- Broken or shattered bones
- Jaw, facial, and/or dental fractures and injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Internal organ damage and/or internal bleeding
The above injuries all require emergency medical attention and often need extensive treatment including surgeries, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and more.
