New Port Richey Motorcycle Crash

No Fee or Cost Unless We Win

New Port Richey, Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Whittel & Melton, LLC
Representing Riders with Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Crashes
Don’t Face the Judge Alone!

“The driving public is many times unaware of the risks associated with being on a motorcycle. Many times a motorcycle accident is caused by failure of the motor vehicle to even recognize that a motorcycle is nearby. Unfortunately, being on a motorcycle means that you stand a chance to be punished for the mistakes of other drivers.”
– Jason M. Melton, Esquire – Florida Motorcycle Injury Attorney, founding member of the National Academy of Motorcycle Injury Lawyers

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2008, 47 percent of all motorcycles involved in lethal crashes collided with another type of motor vehicle in transport. When involved in two-vehicle crashes, 77 percent of the motorcycles implicated were struck in the front. Only 7 percent were hit in the back. You don’t need to be a human factors expert or an engineer to appreciate how dangerous these statistics are.

Motorcycles in New Port Richey and throughout Pasco County are more likely to be involved in a fatal collision with a rigid object than are other vehicles. In 2008, 25 percent of all motorcycles involved in deadly crashes collided with fixed objects, compared to 19 percent for passenger cars, 14 percent for light trucks, and 4 percent for large trucks.

Practicing motorcycle safety every time you ride can keep you safe from the everyday dangers on Florida’s roadways. Just as drivers have a legal responsibility to drive with a sensible mind to prevent accidents, companies and government agencies have a legal responsibility to keep our roads realistically secure to ride on.

What if dodgy street environments cause a motorcycle crash? If you or a loved one falls victim to unsafe road conditions in New Port Richey, Trinity, Hudson, Port Richey or anywhere in the communities of Pasco County, please don’t assume you are alone with your injuries. Some examples of unnecessary hazardous road conditions include:

  1. A Dump truck spill. If gravel or other particles are left on the road and not cleaned up in a timely fashion, this can be a severe risk to any biker traveling on Florida roads.
  2. A road construction crews failure to put up warning signs in a construction zone. All signs need to be visible to ALL drivers especially at night or when there are reduced visibility conditions.
  3. A road is repaired or built leaving water pools or uneven metal plates. When water pools at a curve or when no one repairs uneven metal plates or places a warning sign for the hazards, motorcycle riders can sustain serious bodily harm.
  4. Dangerous potholes on the road or highway. When a city or the state of Florida fails to repair these risks despite the knowledge of their difficult visibility to drivers and bikers, this could cause unnecessary collisions.
  5. Failure to put up adequate warning signs regarding road work, blind curves and other hidden dangers. When an agency responsible for the production of roadwork fails to place precautionary warnings when they are aware of certain problematic conditions, injuries or fatalities could result to motorcyclists and drivers alike.
