Saturday evening a motorcyclist carrying a passenger crashed on the I-95 southbound on ramp from Kings Road. One woman was killed and the other person was critically injured. In a separate crash, a motorcyclist was killed in Flagler County on I-95. Both people who died were not wearing seatbelts.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the number of deaths resulting from motorcycle accidents are 37 times the number of deaths from car accidents. Of course, failing to wear a helmet only increases the chance of serious injury or death in an accident.
As Jacksonville accident lawyers, we handle a large number of motorcycle accidents. We find that the most common cause of such accidents is the failure of a car’s driver to observe a motorcyclist. Such accidents often leave the motorcyclist little or no time to respond to avoid the accident.
