Two-thirds of motorcycle accidents are caused by another vehicle violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way

About three-quarters of motorcycle accidents involve collisions with another vehicle, most often a passenger automobile.

Who pays for medical expenses after a motorcycle accident?

Florida law requires the owners of vehicles with four or more wheels to carry personal injury protection insurance. However, this does not apply to motorcycles and the law does not require motorcyclists to carry personal injury protection. If the cyclist is not at fault, you can seek compensation for injuries and other damages from the party at fault. We can also file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company and even file a civil suit.

What kind of damages can I seek after a motorcycle accident?

After a motorcycle accident, our personal injury attorneys seek all sources of compensation available to our clients such as pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of wages, rehabilitation and other possible long-term expenses in order to help them make a full financial recovery. Our attorneys have years of experience handling motorcycle accidents. So we know what to look for when investigating the accident and assessing the strength of your claim.

Why do I need to hire a personal injury attorney for my motorcycle accident?

As a rider, emotional, physical and financial damages can be overwhelming after suffering an injury or loss from a motorcycle accident. One of the most important things you can do if you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident is hire a personal injury lawyer immediately. You need to understand your rights. If you have been injured or suffered damages as a result of a negligent vehicle operator, the negligent vehicle operator is legally responsible, and you may be owed compensation for their negligent actions.
