With Florida's packed roadways, riding a motorcycle can be risky. Injuries sustained in these accidents can be devastating, both physically and emotionally.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Motorcycle accident injuries tend to be more severe than other auto accidents because these motorcycles lack the structural protection of cars. As a result, motorcyclists often sustain brain and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more.
Florida is a no-fault state. And although automobile drivers must carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Insurance, PIP is optional for motorcyclists. Since many motorcyclists do not carry PIP, medical bills and expenses following an accident will fall either on the other driver's liability insurance or on the motorcyclist's own health insurance.
Florida Auto Law is there through the entire journey to guide you through the legal hurdles motorcyclists face following a crash.
We consider all aspects of the crash, including:
Assess other drivers awareness and attention to motorcycles
Assess state laws surrounding helmet requirements
RIGHT OF WAY PRECEDENTS
Determine if driver decisions are aligned with rules of the road
Design, manufacturing, and maintenance negligence
Visual obstacles, blind spots, lighting and human factors
Road conditions including weather & construction
Oftentimes, drivers of other vehicles are not as cautious of motorcycles as they should be. Automobile drivers may follow too closely or become distracted and unaware of your presence on the road. They may also underestimate the danger of road debris or an uneven surface and not allow enough space for you to maneuver.
Difficulty paying medical bills and navigating insurance claims
Motorcycle endorsement required on Florida license
Increased percentage of hit and run probability
DUIs and injuries sustained at Bike Week, rallies and festivals
