Florida is home to a large number of motorcyclists, thanks in part to our temperate climate, scenic roads, and numerous highways stretching across the state. In addition to the many motorcyclists that live in the state, hundreds of tourists venture to Florida on their motorcycles to take part in motorcycle events. Sadly, our Miami motorcycle accident attorneys have found statistics that report thousands of motorcyclists are killed or injured in Florida annually. South Florida, with its numerous highways and notorious congestion, is considered a dangerous place for motorcyclists. Given the serious injuries and high death rates associated with these crashes, the victims of motorcycle accidents and their families will need the assistance of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who will represent their interests to the fullest extent.

Most statistics show that the majority of motorcycle accidents are the fault of the driver of the passenger motor vehicle. Motorcycle accidents always share one common denominator---the sheer size differential between motorcycles and other vehicles. Drivers of cars and trucks often fail to see motorcyclists and cause a collision in this manner. The following is a list of some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Left hand turns into motorcyclists: This is generally considered the most common cause of motorcycle accidents. Car and truck drivers will often make left hand turns without checking adequately in their mirrors and blind spots. They can turn right into a motorcyclist. At times, drivers will turn without putting on their turn signal, giving motorcyclists no warning before plowing into them.
- Unsafe lane changes: Drivers will often not see motorcyclists because they do not adequately check their blind spots and they could switch lanes right into a motorcycle. Drivers who change lanes abruptly or without a turn signal can be held liable for motorcycle accidents that result.
- Distracted driving: Drivers who fail to focus on the road ahead may cause motorcycle accidents while texting, emailing, talking on the phone, or performing other distracting activities. These negligent drivers will be held responsible for the injuries they inflict.
