HALLANDALE BEACH MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
HALLANDALE BEACH AND MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
With a convenient location directly between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and close access to two major airports, two international ports, and a major interstate highway, Hallandale Beach is one of the fastest-growing cities in South Florida. Packing over 45,000 residents into an area of just over 4.2 square miles along the Atlantic coastline, this bustling community is also home to two of South Florida’s premier race tracks.
The race tracks, a casino, a burgeoning financial district, and beautiful beaches in the area draw a large volume of seasonal and out-of-town traffic into Hallandale Beach. With many nearby high-traffic roadways such as I-95, the Florida Turnpike, I-75, and SR 858 (Hallandale Beach Boulevard), this traffic can mean a higher-than-usual risk of injuries and deaths in a motorcycle accident.
The lovely warm weather enjoyed by residents of Hallandale Beach year-round is a draw for motorcyclists. Unfortunately, increased numbers of automobiles on the roadways increases the likelihood of serious motorcycle accidents as well. Motorcycles are legally considered motor vehicles and those who ride them have the same rights and responsibilities in traffic as those who drive cars and trucks. Unfortunately, motorcyclists tend to fall prey to inattentive, impaired, and aggressive drivers far more often than others on the road.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a fatality is 16 times more likely in a motorcycle crash than in a car accident – and in non-fatal collisions, a motorcyclist is still three times more likely to suffer a serious injury than an occupant of a passenger vehicle. Because there are no protective walls, roofs, airbags or seat belts on a motorcycle, even a low-speed collision can cause devastating injury.
