Personal injury lawyers of Gordon & Doner offer safety tips for motorcycle riders.
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (PRWEB) October 30, 2009 -- Because of their low visibility and lack of protection from impact, motorcycle riders must be especially vigilant on Florida roads and highways in order to decrease their chances of becoming involved in an accident, says South Florida personal injury lawyer Adam Doner.
"South Florida offers motorcyclists some fantastic riding experiences, even into the fall and winter months, but every year hundreds of riders in Florida are killed in vehicle accidents," said Doner, a partner with Gordon & Doner, a well-respected personal injury law firm with offices in Palm Beach Gardens and other South Florida locations. "Wearing safety equipment, especially a helmet, increases your chances of surviving a crash, but there are other steps you can take to prevent an accident in the first place."
In 2004, Florida was home to 461,935 registered motorcycles, according to records maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. By 2007, the number of registered motorcycles in Florida had climbed well past half a million, to 624,932. According to NHTSA statistics on Florida traffic safety, the number of motorcycles fatalities also increased during this period, from 432 deaths in 2004 to 556 in 2008.To avoid accidents and serious injuries, the firm of Gordon & Doner recommends these safety tips for South Florida motorcyclists:
"Many riders will know these tips by heart, but each year more people in South Florida take up riding for the first time, and it's important that they heed these safety measures," Gordon said.
Gordon and Doner will soon launch a new Web site, CycleJustice.com, to aid South Florida motorcyclists injured in accidents.
