Many Florida residents enjoy riding motorcycles in the state’s sunny weather and beautiful vistas. Unfortunately, accidents occur frequently due to the high traffic volume on Florida roads. Since motorcycles lack safety features such as steel frames, seat belts, and airbags, accidents can be catastrophic for victims. One common type of motorcycle accident injury is road rash, a severe abrasion caused by skin being dragged against a rough surface such as concrete or asphalt.
If you have suffered a road rash injury in a Florida motorcycle accident, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim against the party responsible for your damages.

Damages You May Be Eligible to Collect for Road Rash Injuries After a Florida Motorcycle Accident

A few types of damages a skilled attorney may be able to help you recover include the following:
- Current and future medical expenses;
- Lost wages and earning potential;

Examples of Negligence That Can Lead to Road Rash Injuries in Florida
To successfully recover compensation for your road rash and other damages, your attorney must prove that the driver who hit you was acting negligently. Although no two motorcycle accidents are exactly alike, many are caused by similar instances of driver negligence. A few common examples of driver negligence that can lead to motorcycle accidents and road rash injuries include the following:
- Failing to check blind spots for motorcyclists;
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Distracted driving;
- Failing to respond appropriately to poor road conditions;
- Failing to abide by traffic laws.
In some cases, a defective part may malfunction and cause an accident. When this occurs, the motorcycle manufacturer may be held liable for their negligence through a product liability claim. Your attorney will investigate the cause of your unique accident to determine who is at fault to hold them fully accountable for your road rash and other injuries.
