Motorcycle accidents are common in Orlando. Over the past ten years, motorcycle accidents have increased by 50 percent, and fatalities have increased by almost 90 percent, according to Ride Smart Florida. From 2000 to 2008 there was a huge spike in motorcycle injuries and fatalities, which reduced in 2009 to 2010. However, since then, motorcycle accidents are on the rise again.
Part of the reason for so many motorcycle accidents in Orlando is because Florida is a popular tourist destination, and also hosts many events for motorcycle enthusiasts.
While all forms of vehicle accidents can cause serious injury or death, motorcycle accidents often cause more severe injuries. Injuries such as brain trauma, paralysis, fractures, and severe burns can stop victims from returning to work and their daily lives, not to mention incur wildly expensive medical bills.
Motorcycle accidents don’t only affect visitors and local enthusiasts though. Just last month an off-duty police officer was killed while on his personal motorcycle.
Personal injury attorney James Cunningham has been working with motorcycle accident victims in Orlando since 1977. He offers vigorous representation in order to hold negligent parties accountable and ensure insurance companies don’t hold back well-deserved funds.
Often, because of the serious nature of motorcycle injuries and the extensive medical treatment, surgeries, and physical therapy needed, insurance companies will fight back against victims and resist paying for treatment. You need an aggressive, experienced attorney on your side to make sure you not only receive compensation for initial medical treatment, but also for medication, physical therapy, rehabilitation, lost wages, personal trauma, property damage, and more.
