  Motorcycle Accidents
The roads are becoming increasingly dangerous with distracted drivers and overcrowded commutes. As the danger for drivers intensifies, so does the potential for motorcycle accidents. If you, or someone you love, has been injured in a motorcycle accident then you understand the toll it can take physically, emotionally, and financially.

Helmet Laws and Florida Motorcycle Accidents
Florida has enacted helmet laws as it pertains to motorcyclists. Drivers and riders (under the age of 21) must wear a helmet. If you are over the age of 21, you are permitted to drive or ride without a helmet, but you must carry at least $10,000 in medical insurance.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Some of the most common injuries that can occur in a motorcycle accident include traumatic brain injury (TBI), disfigurement, fatal injury, road rash, and spinal cord injury. The effects of any motorcycle accident injury can range from short term to life changing. The result may leave you with debilitating pain and financial loss. For this reason, it is important to have a dedicated legal representative at your side after an accident. If you have to miss work or you are left with overwhelming medical bills, you will want the help you need to receive the compensation you deserve.

Determining Fault
Florida is a Comparative Fault state, which means that the financial responsibility is proportionate to fault. To determine fault, the following factors are considered: road conditions, speed, driver fatigue, alcohol or drug influence, and weather. An experienced legal representative could help you accurately determine who is at fault after a motorcycle accident.

Insurance Laws and Motorcyclists
Motorcycle insurance laws in Florida can be very confusing and difficult to understand. Additionally, many auto insurance policies, including no-fault policies, do not cover motorcycle accidents. As a result, drivers have to pay astonishing medical bills out of pocket. With the right legal representation at your side, you can save yourself from drowning in medical bills, lost time at work, and crippling physical injury.

If you have been in an accident then time is of the essence to receive the compensation you deserve.
