ARTICLES: MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS


Information To Remember

Motorcyclists face a dangerous challenge on America's roadways, and, when an accident happens, contact us as soon as possible to make sure you get all you are entitled to under the law.

Due to the complexity of the legal system, it is crucial to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer licensed and well-versed in Florida motorcycle, automobile and personal injury law and who has handled various cases within the legal system.

Immediately after an accident, please remember to follow these steps:

  • Call the police.
  • Exchange information with the other parties involved, including name, license, insurance, policy number, address, telephone and any passengers.
  • Do not admit any responsibility, make any statements, or sign anything.
  • In Florida, you are under no obligation to cooperate with or provide statements to the other driver's insurance company.
  • Photograph any injuries, including road rash, bruises, etc.

Comparative Fault

Florida has what is called "Comparative Fault," which means damages may be reduced by the percent that you were also at fault in an accident or other personal injury incident.

Motorcycles Differ From Automobiles

Unlike automobile insurance, motorcyclists are not entitled to purchase to No-Fault benefits, often called Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which are paid by the insurance company regardless of who bears ultimate responsibility. These benefits cover medical expenses, prescriptions, lost wages and others. Every automobile owner is required to have PIP. Also, motorcycle insurance does not require you to sustain a permanent injury in an accident, so there is no restriction on pain and suffering damages.
