Miramar Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents
Limited visibility traffic collisions in Miramar and other communities are all too common. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 38% of all fatal accidents in the U.S in 2011 involved limited visibility issues. In some cases, limited visibility was caused by atmospheric or weather conditions. However, in many cases these collisions were caused by negligent drivers or municipalities. Poor road design, distracted driving, and other issues can all contribute to poor visibility accidents, or accidents caused when a driver or motorist does not see enough in order to prevent a collision.
It is important to hold negligent and reckless drivers accountable for their poor driving habits.

Visibility accidents often lead to catastrophic injury, in part because a motorcyclist usually does not see a danger in time to try to minimize the collision. In addition, motorcyclists have very little to shield them, making them especially vulnerable to serious injuries when accidents occur. Common injuries after a motorcycle accident include:
- Internal injury
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Disk herniation
- Spinal cord injuries and back injuries
- Lacerations and scarring, including scarring caused by road burns
- Crushing injuries
Poor visibility contributes to many motorcycle accidents each year. Although many people associate limited visibility with poor weather or atmospheric conditions, in many cases the negligence of other drivers on the road can lead to these types of collisions. In some cases, motorists are distracted or driving drunk and simply fail to see a smaller vehicle. In other cases, they may attach trailers incorrectly or may overload their vehicles so that they cannot see around them.
When negligence plays a role in limited visibility collisions, it is important to get fair compensation. Not only does this hold the accountable parties responsible for the collision and teaches them to use more caution in the future to prevent further accidents, but fair compensation also helps the injured party get quality medical treatment and helps them pay for the many services they will need as a result of their injuries.
