Representing Injured Bikers in St. Johns County
A motorcycle rider is the individual operating the motorcycle, but there are often motorcycle passengers as well. Motorcycle accident statistics lump all the motorcycle types — mopeds, scooters, two- and three-wheeled cycles, off-the-road motorbikes, pocket bikes, and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) — into a single category.
Within the U.S., and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2012 Traffic Safety Facts (released in 2014 and still the most recent) have statistics on motorcycle accidents:
- 4,957 motorcyclists were killed in 2012
- More than 93,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2012
At Glober + Glober Attorneys, P.A., we know that a motorcycle accident can be one of the more extreme motor vehicle accidents.

Our team will represent you, so your rights are protected, and you are given rightful compensation to help get your life back on track.
Florida has great motorcycle weather — clear, usually relatively dry, and sunny. The fatality rate for motorcycle accidents, however, is six times the fatality rate for those riding in passenger vehicles. Insurance companies sometimes misunderstand and, in some cases, misrepresent the specifics of motorcycles. Few attorneys — and only the ones with a lot of experience handling such cases — truly understand the mechanics of driving a motorcycle and how motorcycle accidents happen.
Our team will focus on your well-being and recovery when you or a loved one has suffered injury in a motorcycle accident. We make sure the facts are clearly represented so you are no longer a target for the other party’s insurance company lawyer. We’ll help evaluate your legal options and take the time to explain each one before we begin the steps necessary to protect you from further financial harm.
