Road accidents are basically inevitable, and often times, motorbike drivers are at a higher risk of accidents than other road users. Once an accident involves a motorbike, the motorbike driver is likely to be more injured than the auto driver. The motorbike driver therefore has greater need for a motorbike accident attorney.
There is more at stake for the motorbike driver with the magnitude of the injury incurred and the insurance companies out to minimize claims. But an experienced motorbike attorney will be able to assist the victim in winning the case. Once the accident has occurred, you need to assert your legal rights immediately and get the auto driver to take responsibility for the accident if the other driver was at fault.
Florida is home to a great number of motorbikes and naturally, the amount of motorbike accident is also high. You as a motorbike driver need to know what to do in the case of a motorbike accident in Florida.
Motorbike drivers are not required by law to carry the compulsory personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, unlike car drivers. Though a car driver can also own a motorbike, hence, a PIP insurance. However, the insurance does not cover motorbike accident injury.
If your motorbike accident was caused by a negligent party, you can hold them financially responsible for the injuries, damages and losses incurred as a result of the accident. The negligent party could be the driver of the other vehicle, government or its contractors, manufacturer of defective motorbike parts.
The motorbike driver does not need to prove that there is a permanent or life-altering injury before he/she can win claims to cover their injuries and losses.
