Statistically, 57-year-old riders are most likely to end up in a hospital with a non-fatal injury. While motorcycle riders age 25-34 are more likely to be fatally injured. The majority of injured motorcycle enthusiasts are actually Florida residents. Even though Volusia County is Florida’s biker’s paradise, it is statistically the most dangerous place to ride a motorcycle in the State of Florida. Palm Beach, Orange County, Miami-Dade County, Broward, Brevard, Duval, and Hillsborough Counties also have the highest number of fatal motorcycle crashes in Florida.
Our South Florida motorcycle injury law firm strongly recommends that all Florida bikers use helmets when riding. Currently about half of Florida’s bikers use helmets. In 2000, Florida became one of five states to repeal the helmet law. Florida Statutes §316.211 allows any person over 21 years of age to operate or ride a motorcycle as long as they have an insurance policy that provides at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of a crash.
