Daytona Beach Bike Week Accident Lawyers
Since it began in the post-war 1940s, Daytona Beach’s annual autumn Bike Week has a reputation as being one of the country’s most popular motorcycle events.
It also has another reputation: it is one of the most deadly motorcycle events.
With over 500,000 in attendance, the unfortunate truth is that accidents happen. Every year multiple bikers are killed during the weeklong event. Some years are worse than others – in 2006 six people were killed.
Contrary to popular belief, the majority of motorcycle accidents that happen at Daytona Bike Week aren’t caused by a careless rider. All too often bikers are injured – or killed – when hit by a car or truck while out for a ride, taking in the beautiful Daytona Beach scenery.
The most common cause of motorcycle accidents during Daytona Bike Week is that a car fails to see the motorcyclist. Other common causes of accidents include a car: failing to signal when changing lanes, not coming to a complete stop, making a left turn without checking for an oncoming motorcycle, pulling out from a side street without looking both ways, or backing out without first properly looking.
In all of these cases, the biker is not at fault. The driver of a car has a duty to be aware of all other vehicles on the road – including motorcycles. When they fail to uphold this duty and a motorcycle rider is injured, the driver of the car can be held liable for your injuries.
Daytona Bike Week 2016 is quickly approaching and, like other years, thousands of riders from all over the country are expected to attend. If you or a loved one is unfortunate enough to experience a motorcycle accident injury during this event, it is important that you contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.
