in Orlando, FL
Florida is famous for motorcycle enthusiasts whether they be attending the various Bike Week festivities throughout Florida, full-time riders, or weekend hobbyists. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident in Orlando or the State of Florida, your rights as an injured party are immediately at stake. While riding a motorcycle can be therapeutic and adventurous, the result is that 80% of all motorcycle accidents result in either serious personal injury or death. If you have been involved in a Motorcycle Accident in or around Orlando by no fault of your own we are here for you. We can assist you in determining what Florida Laws apply and the several options available to victims of motorcycle accidents who have suffered injuries and/or damage to their property.
If the motorcyclist was not at-fault, they may be able to seek damages from the party negligent in causing the crash. When a rider is the victim of automobile negligence, they are less protected than those who suffer an automobile accident. While motorcyclists are not covered by PIP insurance, they are also not bound by its restrictions. Injured motorcycle riders are not limited in the damages they may seek to compensate for their losses, including damages for pain and suffering. Motor vehicle accident claims involve PIP insurance—which requires the injured party to pass an “injury threshold” to be able to pursue compensation from the negligent party—and do not allow for the recovery of pain and suffering damages. Motorcyclists do not have to pass an injury threshold to seek compensation for damages, which may include medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
