Motorcycle Accidents Often Result in Catastrophic Injuries
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in a single year, approximately 90,000 motorcyclists are injured nationwide. In fact, the statistics show that motorcyclists are about 25 times more likely to die in traffic collisions and five times more likely to suffer injuries, as compared to the occupants of passenger cars.

Motorcyclists Have an Equal Right to the Road
Sadly, many car and truck drivers have this idea that motorcyclists are “second-class citizens” on the road and do not have the same rights. They may not bother to look out for bikers when it comes to changing lanes or making right- or left-hand turns. This type of negligence can easily lead to serious injuries or even wrongful death cases for bikers.
Other examples of negligent drivers are those who:
- Operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Text while driving
- Speed, run red lights, or pass other vehicles illegally
Mr. Warnock is a determined champion for the rights of motorcycle riders throughout central Florida. He will deal with the legal aspects of the case, interact with the insurance companies, and handle all other details so that you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries.
Catastrophic Injuries Demand Compensation for the Present & the Future
While the occupants of automobiles and trucks are protected by their vehicles' heavy metal bodies, bikers have no such protection. It is no surprise, therefore, that motorcyclists often suffer the most serious and catastrophic injuries on the road.
Serious, life-threatening injuries bikers often sustain from motorcycle accidents include:
- Spine, back, and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Road rash/severe abrasions
- Burns, cuts, and bruises
- Broken bones
- Crushed limbs
- Internal bleeding
- Wrongful death
In many cases, these types of injuries require lengthy hospital stays, reconstructive surgeries, amputations, and other intensive forms of treatment. In addition, the repercussions of the accident can last for years—or even a lifetime. You may need long-term care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, prosthetics, prescription drugs, and more for a significant time to come.
This is why it is vital to engage the help of a lawyer like Mr. Warnock who can make sure you obtain the full amount of compensation you will need to cover your medical needs both now and later.
