Motorcycle Accidents Lead to Serious Injuries

Collisions involving motorcycles are often some of the most dangerous and deadly. Given the lack of protection offered by a motorcycle, riders know that a crash could result in one or more serious injuries.

Motorcycle accident victims experience a variety of catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Internal bleeding
  • Loss of limbs

Those who walk away from a motorcycle accident with only minor cuts and bruises are extremely fortunate. However, you are entitled to pursue compensation no matter how severe your injuries resulting from a motorcycle crash.

No-Fault Insurance & Motorcycle Accidents

Car owners in Florida know that they live in a no-fault insurance state and are therefore required to carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.

When a driver is involved in an accident, they almost always must file a claim under their PIP insurance before they can hold an at-fault driver liable for their losses.

All two-wheeled vehicles, including motorcycles, are excluded from the no-fault insurance laws. This means that your PIP coverage will not apply to damages you have incurred in a motorcycle accident.

Recovering Damages in a Motorcycle Accident

While all motorcyclists are required to carry liability insurance, they do not need to have medical payments coverage. If you have this additional type of insurance, your policy should pay out to cover your motorcycle accident-related medical expenses up to the policy limits.

If you do not have this type of coverage or would like to pursue other types of losses for your injuries, you have the option to file a fault-based claim against the driver who caused the collision.

Under Florida’s comparative negligence laws, if you are partially to blame for the accident, your compensation award will be reduced according to your level of fault.

For example, if you are found to be 30% at fault for the accident, and your losses are calculated to be $100,000, the maximum amount you can receive is $70,000.
