Motorcyclists love to ride the highways of the Sunshine State. The warm climate is optimum for Florida motorcycle riders and inviting for our many visitors from out-of-state. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents in Florida have increased every year since 2010. Approximately 90% of those motorcycle crashes result in injuries to the motorcycle driver, the passenger, or both. Another .5% of motorcycle accidents in Florida result in fatalities each year. Even when motorcyclists wear protective gear and drive defensively, their chances of experiencing significant injuries from a crash are much higher than when riding in a car or truck.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries
At Frohlich, Gordon & Beason Law Firm our accident attorneys have years of experience helping clients receive fair compensation for their injuries and losses after a motorcycle accident. We understand the unique challenges that clients face in motorcycle accident cases in Florida. The fact that Florida doesn’t require motorcycle owners to carry PIP insurance is one of the challenges we deal with frequently.
When Florida motorcyclists don’t have PIP insurance, the insurance company often denies payment for medical bills and repair bills related to a motorcycle accident. This can leave the motorcycle accident victim with serious financial issues to deal with in addition to the other stress factors related to recovery from the accident. Thankfully, there are still options. Our personal injury attorneys can help you overcome this hurdle and receive the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
