Getting into a motor vehicle accident of any kind is a scary moment in a person's life, and the results could be devastating. But if there is one vehicle out on the road that is more at risk in an accident than any other, it is the motorcycle. With few safety options and a wide open vehicle, it is only natural to expect horrific or even fatal injuries to a motorcyclist if they are involved in a crash.
Florida's Integrated Report Exchange System (or FIRES) has some motor vehicle accident data on the 2016 year. According to FIRES, there were 395,607 total motor vehicle accidents in the state of Florida in 2016. In these accidents, more than 250,000 injuries were suffered by the victims. There were also 3,183 deaths in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Florida in 2016.
