Sinclair Law Offices Confirms Rise in Motorcycle Injuries and Fatalities

Melbourne, FL – Attorney Brad Sinclair, of Sinclair Law Offices, focuses on Motorcycle Accident cases and recognizes a recent rise in the number of motorcycle injuries and fatalities in the state of Florida.

“The deaths of motorcyclists are increasing statewide,” says Sinclair. “And although risk and injury have always been associated with motorcycles, a suffering economy has forced more people to look at motorcycles as a primary source of transportation.”

In Florida, a 2000 state law has allowed motorcyclists—over the age of 21 with a minimum of $10,000 in medical insurance—to ride without a helmet. Sinclair Law supports an individual’s freedom of choice. And although a helmet is not required, statistics show an increase in injuries and fatalities for motorcyclists that opt to ride helmetless. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle Records, 517 motorcycle fatalities occurred in 2007, compared to the 155 motorcycle fatalities in 1999—the last full year in which riders in Florida were required to wear helmets.
