Than Four Combined Decades
Experienced Tampa Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Tampa’s exceptionally warm weather and beautiful landscapes make motorcycle riding a popular mode of transportation throughout the state.
Unfortunately, like most traffic statistics, the more motorcycles that are on our roadways, the more likely collisions with these vehicles are to occur. This is especially true when passenger vehicles, trucks, or SUVs fail to share the road with motorcyclists, as they are required to by law.
If you or someone you love has been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, contact our personal injury lawyers today to discover how we can help you hold the responsible party liable for your full financial recovery.
How Many Motorcycle Accidents Occur Each Year in Tampa?
Last year, the Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provided motorcycle accident statistics that reflect the state’s accidents, injuries, and fatalities that occurred on our roadways.
Their report included the following motorcycle collision facts:
- Nearly 9,200 motorcycle accidents
- Over 5,700 motorcycle accident-related injuries
- More than 530 motorcycle accident-related fatalities
Unfortunately, most of these motorcycle accidents, injuries, and fatalities were preventable, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration listed distracted driving as one of the leading causes of traffic collisions throughout the country.
That is also true for motorcycle accident collisions.
Other common factors that cause motorcycle accidents in Tampa include:
- Aggressive and reckless driving
- Drivers who disobey traffic signs and signals
- Impaired driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Reversing a vehicle without looking
- Opening car doors without checking their surroundings
- Drivers making left turns in front of a motorcyclist

What are the Most Common Injuries Associated with Tampa Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcyclists are vulnerable while riding, even when they are wearing protective gear and helmets. Motorcycles weigh approximately 700 pounds, versus a much larger passenger vehicle that can weigh up to two tons.
Because of the weight and force differential between passenger vehicles, trucks, and SUVs, and motorcycles, riders are typically on the losing end of any collision.
Common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include but are not limited to:
- Road rash that requires skin grafting
- Facial fractures
- Broken bones
- Muscle, ligament, and tendon tears
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Burn injuries
- Injuries to extremities
- Neck and spine injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Wrongful death
