Florida plays host to motorcycle rallies that attract visitors from across the globe

Florida’s beautiful, sunny weather, sandy beaches, and rolling roadways have made the Sunshine State a popular destination for motorcyclists from around the country, and even from around the world. In addition to the millions of residents and vacationers who ride, Florida also plays host to motorcycle rallies that attract visitors from across the globe, including two in Daytona alone – Daytona Bike Week held every spring and autumn’s popular Biketoberfest®.
As interest in motorcycling and cycling-related activities has grown in popularity in the state, motorcycle safety and accident prevention have become even more important issues among riders and drivers of other types of motor vehicles.
Florida’s response to these mounting safety issues has been proactive. In 2008, the state Department of Transportation teamed up with motorcycle safety groups and stakeholders from across the state to create the Motorcycle Safety Strategic Plan (MSSP), an initiative to help define and implement specific strategy aimed at improving safety among motorcyclists.
The MSSP is one critical component of motorcycle safety awareness, but it doesn’t eliminate the need for cyclists to develop an understanding of their rights and the best ways to protect themselves in the event of an accident.
Motorcycle accidents – even those that seem minor – can result in injuries which may not become apparent until days or even weeks after the incident. For that reason, even if you feel your injuries are insignificant, it’s important for you to seek the advice and guidance of an attorney immediately.
Even if your injuries do turn out to be relatively minor, the medical costs associated with their treatment can still be significant. In cases where injuries turn out to be more severe, the financial impact can be devastating. Having a lawyer on your side is the best way to ensure that your rights are protected and that negligent drivers are made to pay for the damages they cause.
