Florida Law Treats Motorcycle Accidents Differently From Automobile Accidents
According to Florida’s no-fault insurance law, automobile motorists must carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and $10,000 in property damage liability. PIP insurance reimburses the insured for accident-related medical bills, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. But to receive pain and suffering compensation, the automobile motorist must be able to prove that the injury is permanent. However, this law does NOT apply to motorcyclists because they are not required to carry PIP insurance. Therefore, there is NO requirement that the motorcycle injury victim prove the existence of a permanent injury in order to receive compensation and there is no restriction on recovery for pain and suffering.
Protecting the Rights of Motorcycle Accident Victims
The growing number of residents and visitors in Florida who love riding motorcycles make motorcycle safety an important issue. Negligent drivers are a serious and deadly threat to motorcycle drivers on Florida roads. Even the most cautious motorcycle driver can be involved in a motorcycle accident. Many crashes are often caused by other drivers who either do not see the motorcycle or are not respectful of motorcyclists’ rights. Motorcycle accidents often result in significant injuries due to the lack of protection surrounding the motorcyclist. The injuries received in motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic such as:
spinal cord injuries
Alan recognizes the dangers that motorcyclists face on the roads and understand that in most cases, motorcyclists are not at fault for their motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accident injuries can be expensive, debilitating, and have long-term consequences. Alan will fight for your legal rights and help you to recover the maximum compensation that you deserve.
