Motorcycle crashes happen far too often in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs and other Southwest Florida communities. At Bernardo injury law, we’ve had many cases involving motorcycle crashes.

There are many safety precautions people can take to avoid motorcycle crashes. Motorcyclists should wear a helmet, don’t speed and watch out for cars that may not see them. All drivers — no matter the vehicle — need to be aware of the other vehicles on the road, look twice for motorcycles, obey traffic rules and signals, and don’t drink and drive.
