Florida Highway Patrol reported that a woman died in an accident on State Road A1A Westbound at I-95 on Saturday.
According to the police report, a twenty-year-old woman driving a Kia Soul was leaving I-95 Southbound at State Road 16 when she directly crashed with a Harley Davidson model 999.
Florida Highway Patrol said the motorcycle was deflected to the left and crossed the raised curb and grass median.
The passenger of the motorcycle was Jolleen C. Ford from Eden, New York, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, forty-seven-year-old Shane Bingman, is severely injured and in a critical condition.
Motorcyclists are exposed to a high risk of severe injuries and fatal outcomes. They are not protected like drivers, and therefore their injuries will take a long recovery.
Such accidents frequently happen mainly because of speeding and the inability of cars to stop when motorcycles tend to switch lanes fast. But alcohol is also not excluded.
When motorcycle accidents happen, no matter whose fault it was, the motorcyclist has the right to file a lawsuit and seek a compensation claim.
The amount of the claim is different for every accident. In case if the other party is entirely at fault for the accident, the claim will depend on the severity of the injuries and damages, costs of the medical expenses, lost wages, whether the liable party has insurance.
