Motorcycling is a lifestyle, not just a hobby, yet it is also one of the more dangerous forms of travel on Florida roadways. According to the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR), a subsection of the University of South Florida, there were 584 deaths associated with motorcycle crashes in 2015 alone, which accounted for 20% of all motor vehicle fatalities for the year. Many of these crashes, however, were potentially caused by the negligence of other motorists.
If you are a motorcyclist who has been injured in an accident that you do not believe was your doing, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain and suffering. Even if you are unsure as to the contributing factors that led to your accident, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine would be happy to discuss your case.

Common Acts of Negligence in Motorcycle Accident Cases
Ultimately, each motorcycle accident case is different in terms of liability. Cornell Law School defines liability as: “A failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.” In this way, a driver who fails to respect the laws of the road could potentially be held liable in terms of negligence. Negligence on the road can be interpreted in many ways, such as speeding, or failing to respect changing weather conditions.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drivers opening their doors without first examining the roadway
- Drivers failing to use turn signals, or otherwise failing to obey the rules of the road
- General negligence, such as not paying attention on the roadway
- Failing to check mirrors before changing lanes
- Driving while intoxicated on drugs or alcohol
- And more
