The advent of spring typically means more recreational motorcyclists will be traveling our roads, and with this, the probabilities
of serious and even fatal motorcycle accidents will increase exponentially.
While traffic accident statistics reveal that most motorcycle accidents are caused by failure of car and truck motorists to be fully aware of motorcyclists sharing the road, many such serious accidents result from motorcyclists exceeding the speed limits, carelessly switching lanes, or not wearing safety helmets.
If you are a motorcyclist ready to enjoy spring weather on the open road, make sure to drive safely and take all the proper, common sense precautions – obey all traffic rules and regulations, and make especially sure you and any passengers wear a helmet. And if you are a regular car or truck driver, please pay special attention to motorcycles on the roads in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. Remember, motorcyclists have as much right to use the roads as you do.

We cross the streets everyday without much concern, but thousands of pedestrians suffer severe injuries or die every year doing just that. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pedestrians are one-and-a-half times more likely to be killed as a result of a vehicular accident than the occupants of the vehicle involved in the incident. While driver negligence is typically the main cause for pedestrian injuries, pedestrians can also place themselves at higher risk due to carelessness, such as not crossing in clearly designated zones or not paying proper attention to street signs and traffic lights.
If the accident to the pedestrian was clearly the result of someone else’s negligence, however, a person suffering injuries resulting from such an accident may be entitled to compensation, from the driver who caused the accident, to cover the costs of the resulting injuries and losses – including present and future medical costs related directly to the accident. Likewise, the family of a pedestrian killed in an accident may also be entitled to receive appropriate monetary damages.
