Statistics show that injuries to the lower extremities, traumatic brain injuries, and torso injuries are some of the most common nonfatal injuries resulting from a serious Florida motorcycle accident requiring hospitalization. In addition to the pain and suffering, all of these injuries can result in costly medical bills.

Consider the following statistics from Ride Smart Florida:

  • In 2010, the median hospital charge for motorcyclists admitted to a Florida hospital for the treatment of traffic crash injuries was $55,748.
  • In 2010, the median hospital charge for motorcyclists treated and released from a Florida emergency department for the treatment of traffic crash injuries was $3,101.
  • The total hospital charges for the initial treatment of motorcyclists injured in traffic crashes in 2010 was $348,138,344.
  • In 2010, 51 percent of motorcyclist hospitalizations and emergency department visits were not covered by commercial insurance.

In many Port Charlotte motorcycle accidents, another driver’s negligence is to blame. For instance, vehicle drivers often fail to see an approaching motorcycle when turning or changing lanes. In these cases, it is possible to pursue a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for medical and rehabilitation bills as well as lost wages and other expenses.
