Florida man injured in motorcycle accident

According to the Florida Department of Transportation, motorcycle accidents injured 6,686 individuals on Florida roadways in 2010. While this was a drop from a high of 8,519 injuries in 2008, motorcyclists in Florida still face significant danger from other motorists. Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries, including bone fractures, paralysis and brain damage.

In light of this, police are reporting that an unidentified Florida man has been hospitalized with critical injuries following a serious motorcycle accident in Ocala, located approximately 55 miles from Lake County. No charges have been filed in connection to the crash, but police collected a blood sample from the other motorist involved in the accident. They submitted the sample for analysis and are awaiting the results. They have not commented on whether they have reason to believe impaired driving was a factor in the crash.

Investigators with the Ocala police say the accident occurred as a pickup truck began to make a left turn toward the entrance to a parking lot, causing it cut into the path of the victim's oncoming motorcycle as it traveled southbound. The motorcycle collided with the truck, throwing the victim from his vehicle and onto the pavement. A motorist traveling behind the pickup truck prior to the accident told reporters that the truck's driver abruptly passed into the turn lane before hitting the motorcycle. The driver of the pickup chose not to speak to the media.

Although the motorcyclist was wearing a protective helmet at the time of the crash, he sustained serious injuries. Medical personnel transported him to Ocala Regional Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition.

Florida residents who have been hurt in a traffic accident and wish to seek compensation for their injuries should contact an experienced attorney to learn whether a personal injury lawsuit might allow them to secure monetary damages.
