In most auto accidents involving a motorcycle, the person riding the motorcycle is not at fault, and usually the motorcyclist sustains serious and life-altering injuries.
It is very important to contact a motorcycle accident attorney immediately because the other driver’s insurance company is already working to minimize your case.
Automobile accidents involving motorcycles create different insurance requirements than an accident involving only cars and/or trucks. Often there is no first-party coverage (ie, No-Fault) to pay for medical bills or wages lost.
While Florida law does not require a motorcycle operator to wear a helmet, wearing helmets can have a positive influence on your recovery (both physically and financially).
The personal injury attorneys at Laporte, Mulligan & Werner-Watkins, P.A., located in Port Richey, Florida, highly recommend that you wear a helmet if operating a motorcycle.
