Biketoberfest and a Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Thu, Oct 13, 2011 at 10:07AM

     A Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney notes alarming statistics from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration – more than half of motorcycle fatalities now involve older bikers.

     In 2008, NHTSA data showed, 51 percent of bikers killed in crashes were age 40 or older. Ten years ago that number was just 33 percent. The Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney doubts that younger bikers are getting safer, so it must mean there are more mature bikers out there now.

     As bikers descend on the Daytona Beach area for Biketoberfest 2011, they join an already large number that live in the area.  It is easy to see that there are a lot more old bikers in the mix and the increasing amount of silver hair on the road does add to the gleam of chrome.

     The Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney hopes all the visiting bikers remain safe and accident-free for Biketoberfest 2011. But if any biker does get in an accident and needs consultation with an attorney, the Seitz & Tresher law firm would be honored to assist you.

      We can advise bikers of their rights when it comes to getting your bike repaired or replaced, who is responsible for payment of medical bills and lost wages, and your rights to pursue a claim for personal injuries or damages against the at-fault driver.

      The Daytona Beach Motorcycle Accident Attorney wants to remind bikers that while Florida doesn’t require helmets in all instances, it does require proof of medical insurance. Also, no one under the age of 21 can ride without a helmet in Florida.

     Events like Biketoberfest are important to the Daytona Beach area tourism economy and the Seitz & Tresher law firm hopes it will be successful in 2011.

     The Seitz & Tresher law firm also can provide consultation on many other areas of personal injury and wrongful death law.
