Daytona Beach Biketoberfest Accident Lawyers
Motorcycle accidents happen. In fact, motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of road fatalities in the US. That being said, there are many myths about motorcycle accidents. One common myth says that there are more motorcycle accidents than car accidents. However, the reason motorcycle accidents are so deadly isn’t because there are more motorcycle accidents but because motorcycle accidents often result in more serious injuries – including head trauma, brain damage and even death.
Another popular myth is that the motorcyclists are usually the cause of the motorcycle accident. In reality, this is far from the truth. More often than not, the cause of the motorcycle accident is that a car or truck driver does not see the motorcyclist.
These facts about the causes of motorcycle accidents do not change, regardless of the situation. Even at popular motorcycle events like Daytona Beach’s annual Biketoberfest, when accidents happen they are more often than not caused by careless drivers of cars.
With over 500,000 in attendance, Daytona Beach’s Biketoberfest is one of the country’s most popular bike festivals. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most deadly. Since it began in the 1940s, over 20 motorcyclists have been killed, and many more injured. These accidents typically happen while out on a leisurely cruise, taking in scenic Daytona Beach. Without warning, a car pulls out or switches lanes and a motorcyclist is hurt.
If you or a loved have been involved in a motorcycle accident while attending Daytona Beach’s Biketoberfest 2015, it is important to remember that you are not at fault. In fact, the driver of the car can be held liable for your injuries. This is because the driver has a duty to be aware of all other vehicles on the road, and this includes motorcycles.
