Sport Bike Accident

A motorcycle or sport bike accident can have devastating consequences for the driver or rider involved. In such sunny, hot weather areas such as Central Florida, many motorcyclists and sports bikers might only street clothes and a helmet for protection, opting for comfort over safety. Without the safe enclosure of a vehicle surrounding our bodies, bikers can be thrown and/or hit by another vehicle, run into debris or hit unsafely posted signage or be hit by drunk drivers. The effects range from multiple bone fractures, head trauma, severe, lifelong burns, internal injuries such as a fatal laceration to a vital organ and other catastrophic or deadly injuries. The injuries may require weeks, months, and sometimes years of medical treatment, physical and psychological therapy. Motorcyclists, bikers and sports bikers may find themselves temporarily or permanently disabled, without employment, and needing physical assistance just to complete daily tasks. That’s why it is absolutely essential that, if you are involved in a motorcycle accident in Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough or Citrus counties, you contact an experienced, tough-minded and insightful motorcycle accident attorney to stand up for you in court.

Motorcycle injuries may result in:

  • Head Trauma
  • Concussions
  • Permanent Paralysis
  • Severe Lifelong Burns And Disfigurement
  • Permanent Or Temporary Disability
  • Exorbitant Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Death

What Is Different About Sports Bikes From Cruisers Or Harleys?

The different types of sport bikes have substantially proliferated over the last several decades, with more and more people using them not only for sport and recreation but for transportation around town. They’re powerful, sleek and attention-drawing. They are also dangerous.

Sport bikes are lightweight motorcycles built for speed and handling, for tight maneuverability, quick response, acceleration, braking, and cornering. Because of how little they weigh in contrast to cruisers or various Harley models, and because they’re performance oriented, they’ve become quite popular. Unfortunately, sports bike accidents can be a life-changing disaster for the rider. Without benefit of any physical protection, sport bike riders can be tossed, dragged, and hit or crushed causing severe or catastrophic injuries that may prove to be potentially fatal.

We have often seen where sports bikes are seen as a nuisance by motorists and, like other motorcycle accident statistics suggest, many drivers claim to not even see a sports bike.
