Bradenton Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
We are fortunate to live in a part of the country that attracts bikers, boaters, and other tourists. However, our good fortune and good weather come with a price. More than 10,000 motorcycle crashes and more than 500 motorcyclist fatalities occur here each year (Florida Integrated Reporting Exchange, 2018).
These motorcycle accidents can be very serious, affecting not only the people injured, but their families and loved ones as well. With serious injuries come the burdens of long-term medical treatment, pain, suffering, and loss. During these hard times, you should not be burdened with the additional stress of financial worries.
Experienced personal injury attorneys can help. If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious motorcycle injury, the personal injury attorneys at the Davila Law Group can help protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents typically involve more serious injuries than automobile accidents, since riders are less protected during impact than passengers or drivers in cars. In fact, the fatality rate for motorcycles is 28% higher than that for passenger vehicles, and a whopping 14% of all motor vehicle fatalities are motorcyclists (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urges motorcyclists to make themselves visible on the road, to wear Department of Transportation-compliant helmets, and to stay sober when riding. However, even when safety precautions are taken, accidents can occur, and victims can be seriously injured.
Florida Motorcycle Insurance
Florida law requires all automobile drivers to have a minimum of $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, but this insurance does not cover motorcyclists. Instead, a motorcyclist is supposed to have at least $10,000 in medical coverage. Many also have uninsured motorist coverage for their motorcycle to help if they are hit and injured by an uninsured motorist.
Even with insurance protection and safety precautions, motorcyclists are very vulnerable to being seriously injured and then not receiving adequate compensation from their insurance company. If this has happened to you or a family member, it’s important to seek help from a skilled personal injury attorney who has experience helping motorcycle crash victims get compensated fully and fairly for their injuries, pain, and suffering.
