Motorcycle Accidents 1 out of every 10 fatal motor vehicle accidents involves a collision with a motorcycle. Florida’s beautiful year-round weather is enjoyed by many people by taking to the open road on their motorcycles. Unfortunately, thousands of these cyclists are involved in motorcycle accidents, which often result in injury or death. Many of these accidents are caused by the carelessness of automobile drivers who fail to look for motorcycles when changing lanes or pulling onto highways, streets, or even parking lots. Here are some safety tips to lessen the likelihood you will become a motorcycle accident victim: Obey the law and get proper training. Take the basic rider course and obtain the motorcycle endorsement on your license to ride legally here in Florida. The course provides invaluable training on how to maneuver and operate your motorcycle. Wear the right gear. Be sure to wear DOT approved helmets. These helmets will reduce the risk of suffering traumatic brain injury or death. Other safety gear can be just as important, including eye protection, jackets, gloves, heavy duty pants or leg guards, and appropriate footwear. Be as visible to other drivers as possible and keep your distance. Keep your headlights on during the daytime and wear bright colors and reflective gear. Do not drink and ride. Alcohol and other drugs can alter judgment and slow reaction times. These two things can be fatal. Marsalisi Law is dedicated to serving the victims of motorcycle accidents and their loved ones.

From day one there was a level of comfortability and trust built based on what would be in my best interest moving forward. Never once did Frank make my case about what was in it for him but about healing my injuries in order to move on as normal as possible with my life. – Karlie “One of a kind lawyer …brilliance!” Frank has exceptional auto accident liability law abilities and he is also very well-versed in state auto insurance laws. One of the things I like about Frank is that he never tried to sugar coat anything for me. If we were headed for trouble, he would let me know what the trouble was and what our options were. I always appreciated his honesty. This is trait that I do not find in many of today’s lawyers but Frank has performed integrity well beyond his means. – Ms. C. M.
