In Florida and especially in Tampa, motorcycle accidents often follow the same general rules that are involved in car accidents. More often than not, motorcycle accidents are often caused by distracted drivers who do not keep a lookout for motorcycles.
Wear a helmet and proper clothing while riding a motorcycle.
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, and you are not wearing a helmet, you may be denied money damages if you were partially at fault for the accident, or if you could have done something to prevent your injuries (such as wear a helmet). Your recovery may be reduced based upon your total percentage of fault.
