Motorcycle accidents are far more dangerous than a regular automobile accident. This is as result of one’s body being completely unprotected and exposed during a crash. A motorcyclist cannot benefit from the metal exterior or frame of a car to shield them from the violent impact of a crash. Nor can the cyclist depend on airbags, seatbelts, or any of the other safety features in automobiles made to prevent catastrophic injuries. Thousands of individuals suffer serious or fatal injuries from motorcycle accidents on a yearly basis in the state of Florida
