Motorcycle Accidents in New Smyrna Beach
There are three major highways that cross through New Smyrna Beach, Fl, and the city contains several poorly designed, often-congested intersections. Those factors combine to make New Smyrna Beach a particularly hazardous city for motorcyclists, as you can see by these accidents that have occurred in recent years:
- The first fatal accident of Bike Week 2021 occurred in New Smyrna Beach when a 57-year-old local man seemingly lost control of his bike and crashed on Pioneer Trail near Cypress Springs Parkway.
- In October of 2019, a father and son were riding motorcycles on State Road 415 near La Starza Drive when a car attempted to pass a truck and hit them head-on. Both motorcycle riders were killed.
- In October of 2016, a 38-year-old man died when he lost control of his bike and crashed near Washington Street and Riverside Drive.

Why Hire a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
You Deserve Compensation
When someone else's negligence causes you harm, you shouldn't have to pay the price. In a personal injury case, our lawyers can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and potentially more. In tragic cases of wrongful death, we can help families recover compensation for funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and potentially more.
Accident Law Can Be Confusing
Accident law in Florida is different than in many other states. Florida is a no-fault insurance state, which means that drivers are required to carry insurance that will pay $10,000 of medical expenses regardless of who was at fault in a traffic accident. But what happens when your medical bills are worth more than $10,000? And what if you were only in Florida for Bike Week and you don't have no-fault insurance coverage? These scenarios can be confusing and stressful, but our lawyers have been representing accident victims in Florida for decades, and we can help you navigate even the most complicated accident cases.
We Can Help You
Our motorcycle accident lawyers have recovered over $300 million for personal injury victims over the last 40 years. We are a family-run firm focused on personal, compassionate service. Our injury lawyers have the legal knowledge and the professional network necessary to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

Dangerous Intersections in New Smyrna Beach
Interstate 95, U.S. Route 1, and State Road 44 all pass through New Smyrna Beach, and their onramps, offramps, and interchanges are all prime opportunities for motorcycle and car accidents. One intersection in particular, where Wallace Road and Mission Drive intersect with State Road 44, has been identified by city officials as especially hazardous. In 2016, there were 24 crashes at that intersection.
Traffic experts are working on plans to improve the safety of State Road 44. In 2020, smarter traffic signals were installed from Airport Road to 3rd Avenue that can better regulate the flow of traffic. Also, there has been talk of transforming the intersection into a roundabout, although that idea has received resistance from people who live in the area.
