Florida is home to some of the most beautiful roadways in the nation. Whether it is a trek across the Tamiami Trail in the Everglades or a weekend cruise along the barrier islands, motorcyclists have some of the best thoroughfares in the country at their disposal in the Sunshine State. Bikers, whether they are those who hit the road daily or the casual weekend cruiser, take to the road to experience the excitement of the ride.
Unfortunately, biking has become a dangerous pastime. The nature of riding a motorcycle inherently leaves the riders vulnerable, and too often what leads to devastating injuries or death is the negligence of an automobile driver who failed to respect a motorcycle on the road as they would another car.
Despite public awareness campaigns, motorcyclists and bikers are 16 times more likely to sustain life threatening injuries in a crash.
Florida law protects the rights of motorcyclists who choose to forgo helmets when riding. We fully support your rights in our free society, but throughout our experience, we have seen many tragic injuries and deaths, and we do encourage the use of protective helmets. However, the absence of a helmet when there is a motorcycle accident does not in any way diminish the responsibility and liability of the negligent driver.
